FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is Live Happy?
Live Happy is leading the global movement to make the 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.
What is the Happiness Movement?
A happier world is a better world. By joining the Happiness Movement you are claiming responsibility for your own happiness while becoming a catalyst of happiness in the lives of others. Live Happy started with a series of ideas, based on decades of research about subjective wellbeing (aka happiness) by renowned academics. The Happiness Movement is about sharing and promoting all that we have learned—with as many people as possible. It starts with a positive seed of belief in yourself. With a little encouragement, happiness can gain momentum and grow into something much larger. Just imagine the possibilities if there were more happy and positive people in the world.
Why should I join the movement?
If we want things to change, we have to create the change by choosing and sharing positivity and happiness. Just imagine the possibilities if there were more happy and positive people in this world. A world with more peace, optimism and compassion is possible. And research shows that just by spreading happiness you actually become happier. You can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. Be grateful. Be positive. Be active. Be involved.
What is a Happiness Ambassador?
A Happiness Ambassador is someone who has elected to join our Happiness Movement. Being a Happiness Ambassador says something special about who you are. It is a decision. It is a statement. It is a force with the power to inspire change.
What is a Happy Reach?
Happiness Ambassadors use social networking and referrals to help grow the movement. Based on the number of new Happiness Ambassadors you refer, your “reach” grows. The reach expands past just who you refer, but also to whom they refer, and to whom they refer—you get the picture. There is no limit into how big or widespread your reach can grow!
