We are pleased to announce the launch of Simplify Magazine—a digital publication designed to help families focus on the things that matter most.
I’ve had the idea of creating Simplify Magazine for a while, but it wasn’t until I spent some time with Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist in Colorado this past winter that the idea became more than—well—just an idea.
We had been talking about a collaboration in some fashion, and when I brought up the idea of creating a “simple living” magazine, we agreed it could be an amazing thing. Both of us saw a need, but more importantly, an opportunity.
Each issue will focus on one specific topic that we feel is relevant. We will pull together experts in various fields to address some of the most pressing needs of the modern family.
We chose happiness as our debut topic, not just because it is a universal concern, but more so because the pursuit of happiness becomes the intentional and unintentional driving force for so many of our life’s decisions. These include big decisions, little decisions, and everything in between.
Issue No. 001 of Simplify Magazine
Here’s a list of essays that are included in the first issue of the magazine:
- An Introduction: The Happiness Issue — The Founders of Simplify Magazine
- Find Your Happiness Project — Gretchen Rubin
- What Living Danishly Taught Me About Happiness — Helen Russell
