Humour is a gift. Stress is a major cause of most illnesses, and humour is an amazing way to relieve it. Studies have shown that when we are stressed, our brain shrinks. However when we laugh, we relax; and when we relax, we learn. Humour helps to fight stress and keep a positive attitude -especially, in the face of change. Humour helps us lead healthier, happier and perhaps, even longer lives. Judy is a comedian, motivational speaker, radio host, Second City stand up coach and author.
