Arianna Huffington is starting a conversation around something so many of us moms talk about on a daily basis, sleep. Her new book, The Sleep Revolution, is transforming the way we view our shut-eye, and challenging the idea that the less time you rest, the more you accomplish.

Arianna’s passion for sleep started in 2007, when she passed out and woke up in a pool of blood from a broken cheekbone with a cut over her eye.

Her diagnosis: exhaustion.

Arianna thought, as a lot of us do, that if you want to be successful in work, family, and life in general, sleep is the first thing to go. However, when she realized how her lifestyle had affected her health, she made the decision to change the way she lived. When Arianna started prioritizing sleep, she was able to show up as a mom, boss and friend like never before. Now, she’s transforming the way we think about sleep and why it’s so important.

I originally wanted to interview Arianna Huffington because, well, she’s Arianna Huffington. But after reading her book and listening to countless interviews, I realized that Arianna is so much more than just a nameTo me, Arianna is asking questions and bringing awareness around how we’ve been operating in regards to our well-being and why our society is running down a rabbit hole of burnout.

Arianna is leading a true revolution. She has started a new company in the wellness space called Thrive Global that’s fighting for change in our work, family lives, self-care and of course, sleep.

In short, Arianna’s telling us to prioritize our wellness. She’s teaching us that when can do less and achieve more, and that we can get a full night’s rest and be an even better parent, employee, partner, and friend. It’s because of this that I’m so happy to share her insight with you below.

Dive in, dig deep, and listen closely.
