Episode 36 - Stress Management: “Don’t Get Mad, Get Funny”: Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant
Aristotle said, "The gods, too, are fond of a joke." Who can doubt the benefit of laughter? The famous writer, Norman Cousins, is said to have cured his cancer with laughter. What does every woman say she is looking for in a man? A good sense of humor. Today’s guest, Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant, author of Don’t Get Mad, Get Funny: A Light-Hearted Approach to Stress Management, believes it is her mission to help the world become saner and healthier through humor.
Jasheway-Bryant has written fifteen books. In 2003, she won the Erma Bombeck Award for Humor Writing, which probably explains why she has laugh lines on her face, her stomach, and oddly, her pancreas. She is a stress management and humor expert, health educator, comedy writer, and stand-up comic. Her mission, if she decides to accept it, is to help the world become healthier and more sane through laughter. Leigh Anne claims to be the kind of girl who, as Mae West said, “Climbed the ladder of success wrong by wrong.”
