The Mindfulness Workout provides a fun and accessible guide to the building blocks of teenage mental health and well-being. The exercises are brilliant for parents and professionals and it takes all the goodie-two-shoes out of mindfulness. I would whole-heartedly recommend it to parents and professionals working with teenagers, and I might sneak a copy to some of my adult clients - it is never too late to learn the mindfulness skills presented so clearly and warmly by Iseult in this wonderful book.

Iseult White's book offers invaluable knowledge and guidance centred on nurturing the mental fitness of teenagers in their most vulnerable and formative years. At the heart of this book is insightful and seasoned guidance to our young people on how to gain the self-assurance and inner peace to thrive in a fast-paced world, and to create a sense of self that remains unshakeable against the twists and turns of their external worlds. This book is full of extremely valuable observations and reflections on teenagers and young adults, and on the importance of keeping dialogue open about emotional connections through difficult moments in their lives. We all want to be respected and understood and this book speaks to young adults about their unique place in the world.

This book is essential reading for any adult concerned with the well being of teenagers. Teenagers already get the importance of physical fitness but the Mindfulness Workout explains the importance of emotional and mental fitness and shows how to build it into daily life.
Richard Sadlier, Psychotherapist and Football Analyst
The Mindfulness Workout is an excellent, softly written, and practical exposition of the teenage experience and how to approach it. The science behind the reality of teenagers life is well placed, giving a rationale to their behaviours, which are often seen as inexplicable and undesirable. The light humour adds to the mix and provides a gentle lift to the seriousness of the issues covered.
