To support and honor the International Day of Happiness on March 20, Live Happy launches a monthlong #HappyActs celebration, kicking off with the release of the new issue of the magazine, which is dedicated to savoring life’s greatest moments.
With its fourth annual campaign, Live Happy will share small, simple actions and “happy learnings,” known as #HappyActs, on its social media channels and website. On March 18-20, in conjunction with the International Day of Happiness, more than 100 happiness walls will be set up in communities across the country—and around the world including Korea, China, Mexico, Canada and the U.K.—encouraging visitors to physically post, share and participate. To learn more, visit happyacts.org.
The new May issue of Live Happy, on newsstands March 7, is the first-of-its-kind publication that combines the science of happiness with practical advice, and features actress Queen Latifah on the cover. Additional celebrity features highlight Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans), and Echo Kellum (CW’s Arrow). As with every issue, the magazine shares expert tips, insights and resources from leading positive psychologists, which offer small actions you can take for ’round-the-clock’ happiness to ensure the month of March and International Day of Happiness kick off with a cheerful start. Download the latest digital issue for free in March on iTunes or Google Play as our gift to you!
“Every March is the most exciting time here at Live Happy when we rev the happiness movement into high gear and encourage everyone to participate,” says Deborah K. Heisz, CEO, co-founder and editorial director of Live Happy magazine and author of Live Happy: Ten Practices for Choosing Joy. “Happiness is a choice and something we can always continue to work on, so we are thrilled to continue to expand our offerings and tools that complement the magazine and our other initiatives, to help readers achieve the healthiest and happiest lives they can.”
