"Laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It's the sweetest thing one can do for oneself & one's fellow human beings." –Maya Angelou
WOWZA! I love talking to people that stretch my brain and that's what happened on this episode. It's not a surprise because our guest, Dr. Heidi Hanna, is one of the smartest people I know!
Heidi and I talk about some of the new research she is doing in the world of humor and the brain so grab something to write with and on....you're going to want to take notes!
We didn't talk about it on the show but Heidi has a special offer for those who sign up for her Stress Summit. If you sign up and email her, she'll donate some money back to AATH and you'll also get a copy of the book, What's So Funny About Stress (which she co-authored with Karyn Buxman). We'll have a link to sign up here later but you can reach the destination from her website listed at the bottom of the show notes.
