DALLAS, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Happy magazine is pleased to announce that happiness expert and bestselling author Gretchen Rubin will become a columnist beginning with the May/June 2014 issue. Since its inception, Live Happy's mission has been to inspire people to engage in living purpose-driven, healthy, and meaningful lives. To achieve that goal, the magazine has strived to assemble a team of the most talented writers and editors in the business to not only provide readers with stellar content, but also to add value to the brand.
With her signature blend of thought-provoking inspiration and pragmatism, Rubin's first column, "NURTURING A HAPPY FAMILY: Six tips that help me be the parent I want to be" appears in the "Home" column of the new issue, on stands Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Offering simple yet sound strategies to cultivate happiness in general, it is a must read for any harried parent seeking a little more order on the home front.
"I'm very excited to be a Live Happy columnist and to have the chance to work with such a terrific magazine– one that inspires happiness in all aspects of life" says Gretchen Rubin. "It's particularly appropriate that my first piece, 'Nurturing a Happy Family,' appears in the May/June issue, because these are the months when we specifically celebrate the mothers and fathers in our lives."
Rubin appeared on the cover of the January/February 2014 issue of Live Happy which featured an interview with her on her journey from attorney to mother and world-renowned author.
"Since Gretchen was the cover feature a few months back, we knew we wanted to work with her on a more consistent basis to empower our readership and help make a meaningful impact in their lives," said Karol DeWull Nickell, Editor in Chief of Live Happy. "We are delighted to introduce her as part of this issue, which focuses on the theme of compassion, and share her thoughts on how this applies to one's family."
Rubin's bestselling books The Happiness Project and Happier at Home explore how to be happy and focus on the things in life that really matter. In addition to writing her daily blog at www.gretchenrubin.com that celebrates adventures in happiness, she is currently working on a new book about making and breaking habits that is scheduled for release in early 2015.
