I'm thrilled to be your host throughout this 5-day HAPPINESS PARTY! We'll be getting to know each other quite well with daily emails, facebook lives, etc. but here's a little about me for now.
My passion is teaching health, happiness and infusing brain-based mind/body teaching strategies into classrooms across America. I strongly believe that if we teach health, happiness and essential life skills, starting at a young age, we can change the world. After all, when we change a classroom, we change a community and when we change many communities, we change the world.
In 2014, I founded Generation Wellness, a company committed to developing strong hearts, minds and bodies. We empower students and educators around the world to live a life of happiness, health and success through trainings, webinars, video courses and our Wellness Warrior community.
My experience includes over a decade of serving children, educators and families as a 4th grade teacher, school counselor and trainer. The foundation of my work is spreading love and nothing lights me up more than teaching, connecting and talking about neurosience, happiness hacks and living life to the fullest!
Let's light it up!

Nori Szanto is a former semi-pro basketball player and sports marketing executive turned entrepreneur who is on a mission to help mothers become healthier and happier.
A veteran organizer of various Olympic Games, World Cups and continental events, Nora felt the ground beneath her shift when she became a mother.
With seemingly little room in her hectic schedule to fit in the intense workouts she was used to, Nora had the same struggle most mothers endure when they have kids: a post-baby mommy body that left her feeling sluggish, disappointed and self-conscious.
To help herself and other mothers facing a similar situation, in 2015 she quit her corporate job and became the founder of Busy Moms’ Happy Tribe where she created a mobile phone application, called Busy Mom’s Fitness.
Busy Mom’s Fitness is an accessible, simple and practical mobile app offering rapid and powerful workout programs that can be done in 10 minutes or less. The app also offers a wide range of nutritious recipes the entire family will love.
Nori is Hungarian, lives in Switzerland and has two children: Theo (born in 2009) and Leonie (born in 2011).
We are happy to have Nori hosting Day 3 of this Happiness Party!
