Something to smile about: A new magazine looks at happiness

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?, a Canadian magazine with a positive focus, debuted last week.

Using freelance content, it explores the topic of happiness, what it is and how we get it, with the hope that the magazine “will amuse, stimulate and challenge” readers.  The inaugural issue features articles on endorphins, a happy home life, CBC television personality Rick Mercer and more.

The new publication was distributed via the Globe & Mail newspaper in the Toronto area, with an initial circulation of 54,000, and there are plans for subsequent issues to be nationally distributed to a broader audience.  Johnny Lucas serves as the editor-in-chief.  For submissions email  For information and editorial guidelines, visit
