So Money - Episode 435

Arianna Huffington

Author of "The Sleep Revolution"

Today we’re going to learn how to sleep our way to the top with the Arianna Huffington, who has a new bestselling book out called. The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time

After her own brush with exhaustion in 2007 running the Huffington Post, Arianna woke up in a pool of blood with a broken cheek bone. Why did this happen? She suspected she might have had a brain tumor.  But eventually doctors explained it was due to exhaustion. Today, Arianna is on a mission to help all of us get a little more sleep each night to help improve our productivity and health and our bottom lines.

In the interview we learn how more sleep has equated to a richer life for Arianna. We also learn how she responds to criticism that getting more sleep is a luxury some of us can’t afford. Lastly we talk about the financial lessons learned as a young girl growing up in Greece.

Prior to The Sleep Revolution, Arianna authored Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder, in which she makes a compelling argument that our society needs to redefine the meaning of success to mean more than increased salaries and corner offices.
