Kate Hudson writing a self-help book

Kate Hudson believes people have unrealistic expectations about how much time they need to set aside for exercise.

Kate Hudson wants to encourage people to throw “perfection out the window” with her new book.

The actress has always been a big advocate of healthy living and maintaining a good level of fitness. Now the 36-year-old is ready to put everything she has learnt down in a new tome.

“Happiness is not something that just comes to you," she explained to Allure magazine as she discussed the book. "It's an active process. (It’s about) throwing perfection out the window. Not an advice book. Well, sort of. But it's about finding what works for you. And I'll share the things that have worked for me."

Kate has faith in the power of exercise. The blonde beauty has a toned figure which is the envy of women everywhere but insists it doesn’t take hours of toiling away in the gym to achieve it.

“It's brain chemistry," she continued. "People think you need two hours a day to do it, and that's bulls**t. If you work out 20 minutes a day in some way, you're going to see changes. Like, I've had days where I have the kids—Ryder's on his bike, and I put Bing in a stroller—and I will run and sprint up hills."

With such a busy life raising her two boys and juggling her work commitments Kate has to get her exercise fix where she can. She’s even been known to do some yoga moves mid air while on a long flight.

"I do things that people would think look completely insane," she laughed.

Kate was keen to stress to the outlet that her book won’t be preachy as she still doesn’t think she has everything figured out in her own life. Now single after splitting from Muse frontman, and father of her youngest son Bing, Matt Bellamy, Kate is focused on making their new circumstances work for their family.

“Relationships ending are painful, and you can choose to carry that or you can choose to reframe it,” she said. “If Matt and I had a great relationship, we would still be together, but we chose to move on because we had different visions of how we wanted to live our lives. That doesn't mean, though, that we can't rebuild something that would be the best thing for the kids."
