When I got the chance to ask Geoffrey Saign, author of Smile More Stress Less, any question, I wanted to know what single piece of information in his book he though people would find most surprising. Here is his answer.
There are two takeaways in SMILE MORE STRESS LESS that readers might find new or surprising.
1) All of humanity is living in self-created illusions, and these illusions create ‘stress’ in the body and mind. If you don’t understand this fact, you will simply repetitively create illusions your entire life, and mechanically react to everything and everyone around you. This is absolutely essential to understand. The good news is, half the challenge of change is seeing what the problem is. SMILE MORE STRESS LESS provides the other half; how to end the illusions that you are creating in all areas of your life, gain clarity, and wake up intelligence—which is the deeper extension of intuition.
2) Much has been said about living in the Present, in the Moment, in the Now (and there is a book, The Power of Now)—these are all illusions. There is only HERE. It’s extremely critical that we are clear with the words we use for ourselves and life. Psychological time is an illusion. SMILE MORE STRESS LESS goes into this in detail, and provides clarity. Psychological time creates stress, and thus present, moment, and Now all feed that illusion and stress.
My hope is that readers can be free of all illusions, have clarity, wake up intelligence, and spend more of their life in joy and happiness.

My Favorite Excerpt
One way to change rote, stressful thought patterns is to use playful exaggeration. It is a simple, repetitive method that will produce immediate and significant results, and we will use it often in this book in different ways and situations.
Let’s try it with dirty dishes. You see dirty dishes in the sink. Thoughts enter your mind about how irresponsible the person was in leaving them there. You feel annoyed and irritated. You notice this Self-Created Stress reaction inside yourself, and you interrupt it. You say out loud or think:
Oh no! My hands will never recover from this!
This is going to ruin my whole life!
It’s the end of the world as I know it!
Smile as you do this. Smiling brings about a strong positive emotion, and strong emotion helps change the brain by wiring a new neural pattern that’s even stronger.
Every time we change our thought pattern or interrupt old thought responses, we are changing our brain—teaching it—and allowing a new neural pattern to develop. We are telling the brain, This old pattern of thought is no longer useful or acceptable. The brain always listens. EVERY SINGLE EFFORT IS WORTHWHILE. This cannot be overstated.
Geoffrey Saign — we appreciate your sharing your book Smile More Stress Less with us! Best of luck with sales, and with all of your future writing.
