It keeps me pointed North when the rest of the world seems to be going South.
In the last 365 days Smile Therapy has reminded me that life’s about more than sitting back and letting dice roll as it will. It’s nire a game of table tennis(ping pong) where the ball comes over the net to you, and you have to try to hit it back over the net.
S-T gives me the opportunity to be humbled, and filled with joy and knowledge… all before breakfast.
Smile-Therapy can be a bright spot in an otherwise ordinary, stressful, or chaotic day!
Smile Therapy has been a daily, positive, uplifting engine starter.
Smile Therapy is what starts my day. A positive thought, idea, story to start my day in a positive way!
A good positive feeling for the new day!
Knowing that every morning you sit down early with a message to start everyone’s day with a bit of humor or wisdom … kudos for getting up early out of a nice warm bed and getting on your computer and helping us start our days.
I’d have to say Smile-Therapy is like the bumpers in a bowling alley. Whenever my mood starts to stray toward the gutter, I get an email from this cool dude called the Grand Poobah of Smiles and I get re-centered so I can hit my goals!
Inspiration on demand!
Peace of mind for 5 minutes.
Happiness, smiles and a feeling that there is still good in this world 🙂

Consistent Daily Kickstart.
Daily inspiration. Thank you!
Smile Therapy is the one source of positivity I can count on– to enhance my mood and attitude each and every day.
A smirk on my face and a nod in agreement.
Smile Therapy makes me smile as I take a break from the serious business of life.
I don’t know if you recall, but our work environment was so toxic and dysfunctional that even though I loved the work, the environment was causing me spiritual and physical damage. You offered “Smile Therapy” and indeed it has been remarkably healing! We work diligently now to make this a positive environment in all aspects. It definitely takes some work and time, but I am so grateful to be part of a team. As a whole, we are a happy, productive and enthusiastic team. This positive energy spills over into all we do and makes for some very rewarding experiences. Hats off to the Grand Poobah!
Don’t give up, ever…even if sometimes the biggest obstacle in my life is myself.
Kept me positive during some tough situations!
To elaborate, it has made me think on a more human being level vs just a business level. Help people solve their problems and not use them to solve your own.
Smile-Therapy has been a daily reminder of the goodness that exists in a world where technology gives us instantaneous access to huge amounts of horrible news. In one word: refreshing.
Thoughtful inspiration with a smile. And I’m going to trademark that line. Keep smiling!
Daily positive reinforcement and reaffirmation of the items in life that are important, allows me at least for 30 seconds to realize that work is not the most important item on today’s agenda.
In one sentence: Smile Therapy, as necessary as coffee to give you that morning lift!
To me it means that no matter how bad the day may be, the S-T emails give me a breath of fresh air. Instead of Calgon take me away; S-T takes me away.
Over the last year, Smile Therapy has provided me with multiple opportunities to share a positive message with my family, friends and colleagues – helping to spread the joy!
Fun stuff. I enjoy the jokes and inspirational stories.
S/T has provided me with a variety of “ real life” situations, as well as S-T advising how other humans have dealt with those situations, as they have come up. I have found many of these situations appearing in my own life ; S-T has given me ideas as to how those situations might best be handled.
A very nice daily respite, from what can be a very stressful world.
Positive uplifting messages and stories that make my day a little better!!!
Still going through divorce stuff and that can be tough but many times something you post on your site puts a smile on my face or inspires me. Good job Tim.

Smile – Therapy has made me stop, slow down, think about, help keep a positive aura, appreciate and realize just how lucky I am with my family, my home, my friends and my career, as well as reaffirm that there is much good in our life; we must keep our hearts and minds open to just receive it and to accept it, and then hopefully be wise enough to pass it on.The center/core/nucleus of Smile – Therapy obviously has achieved its mission by sharing and passing on the creator’s knowledge and goodness.

I’ve mentioned this before, but we find value with the lift that it provides our patients. Patients in a hospital, especially a geriatric mental health unit often suffer from depression prior to coming and sometimes a daily uplifting message/optimistic thought can improve their mood.
