In Thrive, Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and one of the most influential women in the world, has written a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world.
She likens our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. It may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we're going to topple over. We need a third leg – a Third Metric for defining success – in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.
In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.

This is a book for anyone who feels like they have to juggle family, friends, sucess at work, eating right and manage to get 8 hours sleep a night. Huffington talks openly on how to manage time, feelings of disappointment, prioritising at work and at home and how she focuses on mindfulness, sleep and rest to ensure she takes one task and one day at a time. Reading about Huffington's experiences on making the most of her time is motivating and adds a needed perspective of self care into the discussions surrounding productivity, efficency and for women particularly, how self care allows for greater balance of work and family. - Lucinda (QBD)
