Happy is the New Healthy

After all the ways we’ve been separated personally and professionally, it’s time to reconnect with some good old fashioned laughter, perspective, and joie de vivre! David Romanelli will share uplifting stories and lighthearted inspiration that will leave your audience remembering we are more focused, more relaxed, and happier when we are connected with our clients, co-workers and families. If there’s one thing we can all agree on, we all need more laughter, joy, and CHOCOLATE. There is an optional exotic chocolate tasting that David will guide your attendees through during this talk, which can be either virtual or in-person. This talk is inspired by David’s book, Happy is the New Healthy which has reached #1 on multiple Amazon Bestseller Lists.

*If you’ve seen David speak previously, this presentation is updated with entirely new stories based on the resilience and experiences we’ve all endured in navigating the pandemic and beyond.

Endings Are the New Beginnings

Two completely different perspectives

The oldest among us, elders in their 80’s 90’s and 100’s
The bravest among us, children overcoming life-threatening illnesses

WHY: After a year that required incredible endurance, are you ready to turn the page and start fresh? David Romanelli will present the emotions, stories, and perspective to inspire your audience to release the past and pour their energy and attention into the future. David draws his insights and stories from two very unique sources; he interviews and hosts storytelling events for elders in their 80’s 90’s and 100’s. These elders have survived the Holocaust, fought in World War II, lived through countless booms and busts, and lived to tell their story. Their advice on resilience, work-life balance, longevity, health, marriage, and parenting is real, raw, relatable and second to none!

David’s second source comes from the only humans more worthy of respect than the elders: children overcoming life-threatening illness. Last year, David’s 3-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. He has walked his daughter through the dog days of cancer treatment, had a ringside seat to how bad life can get, and, as his daughter continues to do great, he draws from the stories of kids finding the inner strength to overcome with huge hearts and fierce determination. This balance of heart-opening storytelling, wisdom-based perspective, and the latest science on health and happiness will energize your audience to embrace a new day, a new chapter, a new beginning. That attitude is infectious at work and at home and impacts mental health, productivity, and the overall energy of your team and audience.

HOW: This is a very unique and heartfelt presentation that will have your audience crying, laughing, and ready to spread the word: the best is yet to come!

Calm Minds for Anxious Times

In these uncertain times, this virtual program gives you and your team tools to be more calm, focused, and present. While we are all living through disruptions, this is a chance to build culture and develop skills to rise above the challenges. This program was specifically developed to be experienced at your convenience, whether in the office or at home. It begins with a 45-minute company-wide Livestream, followed by a 30-day guided meditation program that people will receive in their inboxes.

"Chocolate? Now More than Ever" (Interactive Component Available)

In the time of a pandemic, how do you create an instant reset and recharge for your team and your clients?

The research shows that true and lasting happiness comes from the frequency of your positive daily experiences, rather than the intensity.

By treating yourself to fast, simple pleasures scattered throughout your day, even when your life is slam-packed with work and family life, you can still create the kind of happiness that is enriching and sustainable.

David Romanelli will lead your team through a LIVE 45-minute ZOOM experience that includes tools, stories and wisdom on finding joy in the time of COVID…complimented by a three-part guided chocolate tasting.

David's stories are inspired by elders in their 80’s, 90’s, and 100’s who have lived through World War 2, survived the Holocaust, fought for civil rights and have so much to teach us about what is needed to navigate the uncertainty we are all facing.

For instance, the inspiration behind David’s book, Happy is the New Healthy, is a 111-year-old lady whose tips to longevity were sex, vodka, and spicy food. We all need some of that “joie de vivre” right now. Speaking of which, the oldest lady in the history of the world, Jeanne Calment, lived to be 122. Her secret? She ate 2 pounds of chocolate per week!

The chocolate tasting combined with David’s lighthearted stories and wisdom will remind your participants to take time for themselves and fill their heart and belly with simple pleasures.
This is a much-needed, and well-deserved sensory recharge, reminding participants that “joie de vivre” still exists and feeds us in ways absolutely essential to our resilience, focus, and the energy we need to thrive (and not just survive).

David Romanelli’s work integrating chocolate and relaxation practices has been featured in The NY Times, O Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Food+ Wine, and others. His two most recent books have reached #1 on multiple Amazon Bestseller Lists: Happy is the New Healthy, and Life Lessons of the Oldest and Wisest.
