Paired with Newton-John's profile, in which she shares that "nature is my church and healer," Live Happy unveils new research that dispels common myths about creativity, as well as the impact it can have in creating everyday happiness.

"We're excited to feature Olivia in this issue, an artist who works hard to seek out her own creativity every day," says Live Happy Editor in Chief Karol DeWulf Nickell. "Creativity is in all of us, a fact that many people are often surprised to hear. The anniversary issue brings together leading experts and practitioners on the subject to assist our readers in finding their creativity, and inevitably live happier lives."

Exploring the link between creativity and happiness, this latest issue of Live Happy features new and exclusive research in an enlightening article titled, "Breaking the Happiness Myths." These myths include expectations set upon us by society, that when reevaluated based on personal goals, can truly alter the way we look upon life.

In addition to Live Happy's experts and insight from Olivia Newton-John, this latest issue features profiles on other highly-creative and happy individuals like award-winning singer Tori Amos and singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson. It also celebrates several everyday, remarkable people like Jim Denevan, epicurean entrepreneur and founder of Outstanding in the Field (OITF), a company helping diners reconnect with the land – al fresco style – with feasts set up on farms, ranches, mountaintops and more.

Paired with these powerful and illuminating articles, the September/October issue includes articles by Live Happy's extensive panel of experts, to help readers explore different elements of their life and uncover a new level of happiness including:

  • REDISCOVERING THE CREATIVE YOU: Simple steps to stimulate your thinking and inspire new creativity, by Gretchen Rubin, best-selling author of "The Happiness Project"
  • UNCOVERING YOUR CREATIVE GENIUS: Best-selling author, Shawn Achor ("The Happiness Advantage") and Michelle Gielan, founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research,  demonstrate how to tap into the problem solving potential of unconscious thought
  • OVERCOMING LIFE AFTER LOSS: New ways to cope with the loss of a loved one to help deal with this devastating life event, without letting it overwhelm you – instead, making a plan to get back track and live happily with this new reality
