Share a Smile ... Show You Care!    Share one today!


Boost morale at work! Know someone who needs a smile? Maybe your boss has had a rough week. Perhaps one of your peers is even more fried than you are! Do you have an intern who is struggling?


SUGGESTION:  We think every social work manager should consider starting a Burnout Busting Committee. Give them a small budget to stock up on candy, gift cards, humorous achievement certificates, toys (yo-yos, nerf balls, slinkies, etc). Then turn your committee loose to spread humor and stress relief throughout the organization. Encourage the committee to tap into the sense of humor of their peers. Give the committee a chance to present humorous awards at staff meetings or other functions. You'll find some unique items that make great gag gifts for social workers in the Fried Social Worker Store.

Take the time to show you care. Below are a few suggestions for inexpensive items which can help boost morale in the work setting. Why not get something for your office to boost your morale a bit? Or how about doing something uplifting for a colleague? Be creative. Make an occasion of it! Present your gift at a meeting or arrange for delivery at work. Be public about your show of appreciation. Smiles are cheap therapy. Share one today!

"A SMILE costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give." 


-- Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch
