What is Live Happy?
Live Happy is leading the global movement to make your world a happier place. We’re a magazine, website and resource dedicated to a timeless quest: Living a happy life.

Our mission is to impact the world through a happiness movement that inspires people to engage in living purpose-driven, healthy, meaningful lives. Understanding happiness empowers us to make a positive difference in our lives and in the lives of others. Happier people are healthier, more satisfied with life and their relationships, and they live longer. Come with us on our journey to live happy and spread that joy to our readers. Happiness is a journey anyone can take and it starts with just one step.


Subscription Change: To best serve you on your happiness journey, we’re moving from a bi-monthly print magazine schedule to a yearly print “bookazine” (yes, it’s both a magazine and a book!) brimming with inspiration, expert tips and research. Our first special print edition (thicker and wider) will be Winter 2018, available on newsstands in September. This special edition will look great on your coffee table. We will also be creating more digital content, an expanded store product line and a new format for the Live Happy Now podcast season. Plus, you’ll continue to find your favorite how-to articles, including the latest in positive psychology science, happiness trends and hands-on advice online.
