Yelp Reviews



“I’ve been listening to Dr. Puff’s podcasts for years and I can honestly say he has inspired me to be a more peaceful person. Learning to accept those things we cannot change is not easy to do, and Dr. Puff’s calm mannered podcasts have shown me that anything is possible if we work hard enough at it. I appreciate Dr. Puff sharing his knowledge and experience with others and posting his podcasts freely for anyone to listen to. He really cares about others! He has truly made a difference and a huge impact on my life at a time I was suffering from multiple chronic medical conditions that caused my happiness to spiral downward. His podcasts have been a huge gift in my life and I savor each better hour and am grateful for the smallest of things. I enjoy nature and “stop and smell the roses” quite often. I look forward to each new podcast. Thank you Dr. Puff for your encouragement & learning tools!Sincerely, Iris” – Iris N.



 “I love The Happiness Podcast. I have listened to 3-4 podcasts a day for the last two years, and it and meditation have helped me to be a much happier person. But, recently the feed (since #113) has not been downloading even though I am subscribed in iTunes.” – Carol S.
