In her latest book, “The Sleep Revolution”, Ariana Huffington tackles sleep deprivation. The former Greek immigrant, current media mogul, decided to write the book after a 2007 incident that thought her the value of sleeping.
In her latest book, Ariana Huffington tackles sleep deprivation. The Huffington Post creator is opening up and telling people all they need to know about the proper amount of snooze they should be getting every night.
She starts by telling the readers that back in 2007 when she was still a raging workaholic her life took a turn for the better after suffering a horrible accident. She was in her office one day working an 18-hours work day when she blacked out.
Next thing she knew, she was on the floor surrounded by blood. Because of severe sleep deprivation, Huffington collapsed from her chair and fractured her cheekbone.
The incident served as a valuable life lesson for the media mogul, and she decided to respect her body and try to get more than a few couple of hours of sleep every night. And as she turned her life around, she realized that the world remained as work-obsessed as ever.
So she sat down and started writing a book. In “The Sleep Revolution”, Ariana Huffington tackles sleep deprivation. Of course, the book is written by a businesswoman, so it’s half filled with statistics and data about sleep, sleep deprivation, and other crude information sprinkled with a couple of anecdotes and personal stories.
And even though she doesn’t mention him by name, Ariana Huffington tackles sleep deprivation and its effects on another mogul, the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.
In a previous interview, the presidential candidate declared that he only gets by with three or four hours of sleep every night. And Huffington believes that Trump is making all of his questionable decisions because he lacks the proper amount of snoozes.
According to the founder of the Huffington Post, the presidential candidate would make better decisions and would not make rash allegations if he gets more sleep at night.
Certainly there are quite a few folks out there who would disagree to that. But Huffington is certain that if we renounce technology and embrace sleep as a ritual that must be performed every night, our lives would get better.
Furthermore, she thinks that “The Sleep Revolution” is upon us and big corporations will soon have special rooms where the employees will be able to nap.
