THRIVE
A Conversation with Arianna Huffington on Redefining Success

Summary

When Arianna Huffington collapsed in 2007 from exhaustion, she recognized a powerful need to reevaluate her priorities. One of the results is her new book, THRIVE: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder.

In this April 9, 2014 event by The Forum at Harvard School of Public Health, Ms. Huffington shared her journey of making room in her life for sleep, mindfulness, health and happiness and explained her vision of “the third metric” — a way to redefine success beyond money and power to live a life of purpose and meaning.

    What’s Arianna’s opinion on activity trackers (the technology that tracks sleep, walking, nutrition, etc.)?

    QUESTION FROM ONLINE CHAT

    Are you going to work with universities and their wellness programs on this sleep issue? It would substantially help to reduce healthcare-related costs for these institutions. As a scientist who teaches about this subject to my students, I’ll be happy to help start this process at the university I work at!

    QUESTION FROM ONLINE CHAT

    I feel as though Ms Huffington has read my mind. After battling breast cancer, I began a long journey that led me to drop out of a 23 year career in corporate America and become a holistic Health Coach, with these exact issues and topics atop my list. How would you suggest an individual looking to make change approach this amazing momment and help others in a meaningful way?

    QUESTION FROM EMAIL

    My question to Ms. Huffington is : what does she think of ” Social Responsibility ” in international relations and international economic affairs. Many governments, regardless of their slogans about freedom,liberty and human dignity ,for financial gain,engage in trade with the rulers of Nazi Germany, South Africa,Latin American dictators,despots of the Soviet Union,or arab murderers like Saddam Hussein,Gaddafi,etc. I wish I had the opportunity to meet her someday and ask her many other questions in the field of journalism. I was a journalist myself for two years. I hope she would not try to rationalize in answering my question.
    Thank you,
