An eye-opening shift of perspective on the secret of authentic happiness: how surprisingly simple, everyday acts lead to lifelong joy and fulfillment, from the experts at Live Happy magazine.

We are all increasingly hungry for soul-deep happiness. All over the globe, from the hallways of Harvard, where the university’s most popular course is a class on positive psychology, to the United Nations’ resolution naming March 20th the International Day of Happiness, the question of how to be authentically happy concerns millions of lives today.

But what if the secret of lasting happiness is actually . . . simple? Now, in Live Happy, the editors of Live Happy magazine, the first lifestyle publication dedicated to the timeless quest to achieve authentic happiness, reveal that true happiness is all about the big impact of small acts of everyday happiness.

Organized around the key components of a happy life, from gratitude to attitude and play to purpose, Live Happy brings together illuminating real-life happiness stories, eye-opening examinations on the science of happiness, and simple and inspiring everyday “happy acts” to empower readers to achieve big happiness breakthroughs.

Authentic happiness is within reach—and Live Happy shows readers how they can manifest it not only in their own lives but also make a positive and lasting difference in the world.

Editorial Reviews

Allyson Gracie
“[Deborah K. Heisz’s] book will not only make you smile from deep inside but encourage you to completely transform beyond your wildest dreams.”
Drew Ramsey
“A great book to help you turn the quest for happiness into actionable steps. Want to cultivate more happiness and joy in you life? Read this book.”
Shawn Achor
“This book is thoughtful, practical and powerful. The positive psychology research is placed alongside individuals’ personal journeys to happiness, which were often achieved after great trials or even tragedy.”
Michelle Gielan
“An incredibly powerful book! Along with excellent, science-based advice on how to live a happier, more meaningful life are stories that show the science in action—and that made me laugh and cry.”
Tal Ben-Shahar
“With its lively tone and riveting stories, Live Happy’s book makes accessible the profound research being done all over the world on what makes people truly happy. I recommend it highly!”
Martin Seligman
“There are two ways to learn how to have more well-being in your life. Read the ‘happiness’ books and do the exercises they prescribe. Or attend to the stories of what happy people actually do and how they live. This is the go-to book for these stories.”
Dr. Michael Finkelstein
“Full of practical wisdom, sound science and beautiful stories, I can’t think of a better prescription to connect the dots between health and happiness than reading this book.”
Fred Luskin
“Here is a well-written and insightful book that puts happiness within our grasp. Live Happy offers the science of happiness as excellent guided practices as well as compelling human stories.”
Richard Sears
“If we want to be happy, we have to shift out of the habit of constantly looking for what could go wrong and learn to appreciate what we already have in each moment. In this delightful book, your brain will be bombarded with positivity and inspiration.”
Caroline Miller
“Although I’ve been a student of positive psychology for over a decade, there is so much that is new in this book...that I think it ought to be among the top 10 books anyone has in a happiness library...I can’t recommend the book highly enough.”
Stacy Kaiser
“Live Happy’s book about choosing joy is the perfect combination of science, heartwarming stories and important, helpful guidance...Live Happy knows how to spread the happiness message!”
Margaret H. Greenberg and Senia Maymin

Lord James O'Shaughnessy
“In the last 20 years scientists have begun to confirm the wisdom of the ancients: We can become happier, more fulfilled people by introducing a set of practices and habits into our daily lives. Live Happy‘s book makes this wisdom accessible to everyone...”
