NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With an interactive cover that comes to life, VIVmag ushers in a new year with its Resolutions Issue. The latest issue of VIVmag, the award-winning, original all-digital luxury magazine for women, launched today on the iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC, and is overflowing with exclusive interactive features, including insights and strategies for making your New Year's Resolutions "stick" to improve your health, fitness, diet, beauty and overall well-being.

Inside the issue, international investigative journalist and VIVmag cover girl Lisa Ling talks about her kickoff to 2011 with a new show on OWN, the newly launched Oprah Winfrey Network, and opens up about the agony of her sister's North Korean captivity, plus beauty secrets that keep her looking fabulous, even under the toughest circumstances.

"The New Year is a time for introspection, to take stock of where we are and where we aim to be," said Anne M. Russell, editor-in-chief, VIVmag. "This issue is designed to help women achieve those goals in 2011, with insights and tips on how to identify and overcome obstacles that might be holding you back from living your most fulfilling and rewarding life."

The Resolutions Issue includes a number of in-depth features to help you achieve your self-improvement and empowerment goals, such as how to:

  • Improve your sleep quality to ward off disease, stress and even early death;
  • Outsmart the nagging internal voice that saps your determination and drive in reaching your goals;
  • Overcome food-marketing tricks that sabotage your weight-loss goals; and
