The Sleep Revolution

by Arianna Huffington


In 2007, Arianna Huffington fainted in her office, hit her head on her desk, and shattered her cheekbone. Ever since, she's been dedicated to changing our perspective on sleep and our work-life balance. Wearing our sleep deprivation as if it's a badge of honor isn't something to be proud of anymore.

Over 30% of Americans get less than 7 hours of sleep each night, and in a lot of industries like consulting or investment banking, a lack of sleep is even considered 'cool' and productive. Yet, across the board, more sleep leads to better results. For young kids in school, for students in college, for professionals and CEOs, for lovers, athletes and artists, sleep is crucial. Chances are you're a part of at least one of these categories. Do you know exactly how much sleep you should be getting and how to make sure you have healthy sleeping conditions?

In this insightful book by Huffington Post creator Arianna Huffington, find out everything you need to know about sleep so you can improve your daily life and make the best out of those waking hours!
