[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - As part of their continuing growth strategy and their drive to empower and improve personal development, Healthy Wealthy nWise Magazine releases the iPad version of their publication today. The online mag brings the experience and insight of dozens of leading growth and development experts during a time of year when people refocus their priorities and strengthen their resolve to improve their well-being.
The digital-only magazine centers on helping to create success, freedom, balance and passion for life - issues that are on the forefront of everyone's mind at the start of the New Year.
According to USA.gov 12 of the 14 most persistent resolutions are commitments to improving health, improving financial situation and increasing personal growth. These include simple promises to get fit, eat better, lose weight and moderate drinking and smoking. The list also includes vows to manage stress, to pursue traveling and to get better financial footing through savings, debt management or a better job, usually complemented by getting a better education.
Healthy Wealthy nWise provides a wealth of expert advice and instruction on health and wellness, careers and business, money and finance, spirituality and mind science and personal empowerment. The magazine does this through the contributions of industry giants such as Dr. Stephen R. Covey, Jack Canfield, Les Brown, Eckhart Tolle, Larry Winget and dozens of other "Real Life Legends".
Readers gain specialized insight into actually keeping their promises for the new year, as well as comprehension of what keeps us from meeting our yearly goals. In addition to its 160,000 online subscribers, this year the magazine will bring its powerful messages to iPad users as well. It's an emerging market that increasingly favors the magazine's simple, uncluttered, intuitive format.
The health and fitness focus by itself already has sizeable potential in the app market. Some of the best New Year's apps this year according to Mashable, Yahoo! and iMore are centered on fitness. That's because half of resolutions this year (again) are centered on watching your weight and getting more exercise.
But the personal development content is where the magazine really shines. According to Prof. Peter Herman of the University of Toronto most New Year's resolutions fail because of unrealistic goals and the failure to "calibrate your ambitions to your abilities."
Another reason is that people often bite off more than they can chew. Resolutions are often focused on drastic changes and thus set up for drastic failures. Dr. Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People emphasizes starting small. Setting small achievable goals leads to successes. Says Dr. Covey, "You can build on this with other small promises and enlarge your victory until you establish healthy habits for your life."
Healthy Wealthy nWise provides consistent, valuable inspiration and direction on how to create realistic goals and build those small successes into healthy habits. Even more, readers are educated by industry experts on how to break other barriers to success and keep the momentum of improving their personal development - part of the 10-year mission of this digital publication.
Ric Thompson, co-founder and CMO of Healthy Wealthy nWise explains enthusiastically about the magazine's app debut. "New Year's is about fresh starts but it's also about new perspectives. Being able to see things more clearly allows us to re-evaluate what we truly want in life. Sometimes that's all we need to find success. We hope that bringing the magazine to the iPad will help many more people find that success too."
Over 100 million iPad users will have a choice of purchasing single issues of Healthy Wealthy nWise or taking a monthly subscription. The magazine offers a free first issue for monthly subscriptions, available through the iTunes store.
