Shine, the daily text message to make you happier each morning

We all know that feeling. The alarm goes off, you wake up already stressed about your to-do list, things you need to get done before lunch, an overdue project, the friend you still need to call back, and the list goes on (and on and on and on #adulting).


Fortunately, there’s a new texting service that understands the struggle. Shine wants to give you the motivational boost you need. The daily text message sends you a positive text message every morning so you can start the day off on the right foot.


Filled with actionable tips across confidence, daily happiness, mental health and productivity, and featuring fun pop culture references and gifs, Shine feels like a friend in your pocket.


“People are increasingly seeking ways to connect with themselves and set their days and their lives up for success. It’s called intentional living and we’re all about it,” said the founders, Naomi Hirabayashi and Marah Lidey.


Each day has a different theme, with topics surrounding ways users can be happier and healthier. The text content is bite size so it feels really actionable. If you want to learn more about the theme of the day, you can also read more in the featured article that Shine links to in the text message.











We all need a little help to get through the day. Luckily, Shine is available to help you get there.

To sign up for the free service, text “SHINE” to 30644 or go to
