My conversation with Arianna Huffington.
We need to set boundaries with technology in order to protect our humanity”
— Arianna Huffington
I host a weekly radio show on SiriusXM 111, Business Radio Powered by Wharton, called Work and Life. We publish edited versions of my conversations as free podcasts. I invite you to listen to the episode (embedded below) that is my conversation with Arianna Huffington who, is on a mission to redefine success and end burnout. She is founder and CEO of Thrive Global, this well-being and productivity platform aiming to change the way we work and live. She is founder of The Huffington Post, bestselling author of Thrive and The Sleep Revolution, one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, and Forbes’ Most Powerful Women. Arianna serves on numerous boards and describes herself as “a mother, sister, flat shoe advocate, and sleep evangelist.”
In this episode we talk about the cultural transformation underway in companies throughout America towards greater focus on employee well-being and Thrive Global’s aspirations for contributing to this change. Arianna advocates for setting limits on technology usage to connect to one’s inner “wisdom, strength, and peace.” She describes recent changes she has made in her own life, which she calls “micro-steps,” and she offers research-based advice on what anyone can do to increase the chances of thriving in our tumultuous world.
