The Sept./Oct. issue celebrates undeniable link between creativity and happiness
Dallas, Texas — Sept. 2, 2014— Singer, actress and positive-emotion advocate, Olivia Newton-John graces the cover of the September/October issue of Live Happy magazine, a first-of-its-kind publication that combines the science of happiness with engaging and informative content to help readers live fuller and more productive lives. In this anniversary issue, on newsstands today, the songstress shares recent life decisions that have helped her carve out more time to indulge in her passions for nature, love and the goal of a blissful life balance.
Paired with Newton-John’s profile, in which she shares that “nature is my church and healer,” Live Happy unveils new research that dispels common myths about creativity, as well as the impact it can have in creating everyday happiness.
“We’re excited to feature Olivia in this issue, an artist who works hard to seek out her own creativity every day,” says Live Happy Editor in Chief Karol DeWulf Nickell. “Creativity is in all of us, a fact that many people are often surprised to hear. The anniversary issue brings together leading experts and practitioners on the subject to assist our readers in finding their creativity, and inevitably live happier lives.”
Exploring the link between creativity and happiness, this latest issue of Live Happy features new and exclusive research in an enlightening article titled, “Breaking the Happiness Myths.” These myths include expectations set upon us by society, that when reevaluated based on personal goals, can truly alter the way we look upon life.
In addition to Live Happy’s experts and insight from Olivia Newton-John, this latest issue features profiles on other highly-creative and happy individuals like award-winning singer Tori Amos and singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson. It also celebrates several everyday, remarkable people like Jim Denevan, epicurean entrepreneur and founder of Outstanding in the Field (OITF), a company helping diners reconnect with the land – al fresco style – with feasts set up on farms, ranches, mountaintops and more.
Paired with these powerful and illuminating articles, the September/October issue includes articles by Live Happy’s extensive panel of experts, to help readers explore different elements of their life and uncover a new level of happiness including:
