Episode Description

When is the last time you had a real laugh? The kind of laugh that makes you shake, cry, and hold your sides? Do you remember the giggles you had as a child that you just couldn't stop and you laughed until you simply couldn't laugh anymore? Do you remember how good you felt for a long time after that? Did you ever do that? Do you laugh at work? Do you laugh at home? Do you play only to win or do you play for fun? Do you laugh when you play? Do you know how important real laughter is to your health and well-being? On this show we will talk about laughter with the king of laughter—Steve Wilson, an official "Joyologist" who loves to laugh and have you to laugh with him. This is a show that no one should miss—especially if there is just not enough laughter in your life.

The Self Improvement Show

The Self Improvement Show

Thursday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

The Self Improvement Show was created because almost everyone wants to be better, do better, and achieve more, but we don't always know how to do that. We aren't looking for perfection. We are simply trying to improve in ways that allow us more happiness, contentment and success with some laughter along the way. We address issues common to us all and suggest useful tools that will help you tap into your strengths and your wonderful uniqueness. We think most self improvement is an "inside job" so we talk a lot about how to "go within" to make lasting changes. We talk to people who have struggled and won and have great stories to tell as well as those who live ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. The show is laid back, informative and down to earth. The welcome mat is always out and we invite you to join us.

Dr. Irene Conlan

Dr. Irene Conlan is serious about helping you find the tools you need to achieve your self improvement goals and begin to experience the happiness you deserve and desire.

She has a Masters degree in nursing and a Ph.D. in metaphysics. Irene has taught nursing at ASU, served as Administrator of Nursing at a major Phoenix hospital, and served as Assistant Director in the Arizona Department of Health Services. A certified hypnotherapist, Irene has had her own therapy practice for the past 16 years.

Irene believes that in this stressful world we need help more than ever. We rush from one place to the next, to work, the store, to appointments, to get our kids to soccer practice, ballet, gymnastics, school or the mall. We can be found 24/7 by email, cell phone, or pager. We are stretched to the max and wonder why we can’t sleep, can’t think, and can’t relax. We are enticed by drugs, alcohol and sex to give us an outlet or deal with the stress and many choose to use them. Some rage. Some over-exercise. Some go out and shoot other people. Some simply quit.

In this frenetic activity there is one constant – we are each looking for happiness. Ask the addict, the thief, the anorexic, the debutante, the CEO, service professionals, people you meet on the street or while shopping – ask them what they want. They will, if they can verbalize it, tell you what they truly want is happiness.

Let’s talk about the improvements we can make that help us be happy now.
