Event Sponsor


Stress is a major cause of most illnesses, and humour is an amazing way to relieve it -especially now. Harvard studies show that when you are stressed, your brain shrinks. However, when you laugh, you relax; and when you relax, you learn. This inspirational session explores seven stress-relieving ingredients during these challenging times: a positive attitude, perseverance, forgiveness, teamwork (how to deal with people who aren’t ‘as perfect as us’), family and friends, healthy mental activity and healthy physical activity.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to cope with information overload
  • How to appreciate the incredible medical benefits of humour
  • Increase your chances of surviving a heart attack by five times and increase your lifespan and quality of life by laughing
