At the heart of today’s show is laughter. Science has proven that laughter is one of the best medicines. The benefits of which include stress reduction, strengthened social connections and the release of your body’s “feel good” chemical, endorphins.
Researchers have also validated the pain-relieving effect and benefits of laughter. Studies have shown that laughter strengthens the immune system due to the fact that laughter, like other forms of happiness, triggers the nervous system’s relaxation response – it is said that a good laugh relieves physical tension and leaves the muscles relaxed for as long as 45 minutes. With today’s show being the best part of 1 hour 45 mins I was banking on my guest bringing his best material – which he certainly did! He is a man of many talents, comedian, presenter, actor and amazingly successful podcast & YouTube channel host.
It is of course… Mr Jim Daly!
