Miranda Lambert Talks Life, Community, and Staying True to Her Roots

in New Issue of Live Happy

DALLAS, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Country superstar Miranda Lambert

graces the cover of the July/August issue of Live Happy magazine, a

first-of-its-kind publication that combines the science of happiness

with personal stories and exclusive interviews. In the issue, on

newsstands July 1, the songstress talks about staying true to her

roots in Lindale, Texas, as well as championing the causes closest to

her heart, including no-kill rescue shelters for dogs and raising

awareness for abused women.

And, as Lambert has found in both love and work, we're better

together, an idea the issue uses to prove long-term happiness isn't a

solo act, but rather the result of one's community.

"While happiness starts within us, it quickly becomes about

interacting with others," says Live Happy Editor in Chief Karol DeWulf

Nickell. "We need to know ourselves first, but once we have that

understanding, we are happier with others in our lives. That's

community at its core."

Among the benefits of interacting with our communities and loved ones

is a longer life span, say two of the 12 experts featured in the

magazine's landmark discussion of the connection between happiness and

longevity. Through new research, as well as an interview with

eight-time Emmy winner Cloris Leachman, "The Golden Age of Happiness"

shows that with a few simple steps, our golden years can truly be


Another featured article in the issue is "Waves that Save." Through

"surf therapy," amateur and avid surfers, including legendary pro

surfer Laird Hamilton, are finding that taking to the waves and

experiencing the healing power of the ocean is just what the doctor

ordered. And adding to the discussion of community is "The Happiness

of Being Special," giving readers an insider's glimpse into the lives

of four families with special needs children. They share how

supporting one another and finding joy in the smallest moments has led

to an immeasurable joy-one that many of us on the outside may not


In addition to profiles of actress and philanthropist Holly Robinson

Peete and actress and author Mariel Hemingway, the July/August issue's

columns continue to inspire with their advice for everyday life:

-- PERSONAL TIME: Positive psychologists Shawn Achor and Michele

Gielan share their tips for leading a longer, healthier life and why

you should "Put Your Smile On."

-- HOME: In "Word Power," international best-selling author and

happiness expert Gretchen Rubin discusses how slight changes in word

choice can have big effects in how others perceive you-and how you

perceive yourself.

-- WORK: Executive coaches Margaret H. Greenberg and Senia Maymin

introduce readers to "The Achoo! Effect," when positive and negative

emotions impact our social situations, at home and at work.

-- SELF: Stacy Kaiser, a psychotherapist and relationship expert,

discusses how to take responsibility for the emotional baggage we each

bear-whether visible or not-in "Carry-on or Checked?"

"Community is a perfect theme for this issue of Live Happy because

summertime is when we celebrate that common bond, whether it's at

Fourth of July celebrations, family reunions with our aging loved

ones, or even on a surfboard in the middle of the ocean," Nickell

says. "Happiness isn't something that can be achieved alone."

The issue also announces the first Live Happy Experience & Expo,

taking place in Dallas Nov. 7-8, 2014. Attendees will have the

opportunity to interact with experts in the happiness movement, learn

about the four pillars of happiness and find out how they can achieve

greater wellbeing and discover true success. For more information, go
