The Monday Pep Talk | Sleep [Arianna Huffington]

Sleep is not only for beauty. Happiness and performance are closely linked to sleep as well. Hugely successful Arianna Huffington had an abrupt wake up during her success train realising how important sleep was for her success as well. So last year she gave her friends ordinary alarm clocks for Christmas gifts to give them better sleep habits, e g so they would´t charge their phone by their bed, which is highly common and especially among multitasking women (myself included). "Because I run a 24-7 media company, I´ve seen the dangers of burnout and addiction to instant access. The results of unplugging and recharging are just immeasurable" Arianna Huffington told Harpers Bazaar. Huffington even introduced nap rooms to the websites headquarters. Her personal tips for a restorative slumber includes hot baths (yes, already doing that and I agree it definitely helps promoting good sleep), a silk pajamas and limiting screen time before bed (the latter one I´m not so god at, but, definitely trying to and this made me think about it even more.) So, sleep for success!
