Arianna Huffington I salute you!

Arianna Huffington is one special lady. Not only is the author, commentator and co-founder of The Huffington Post one of the world’s most influential people (she featured in Time Magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in 2006), but she also makes sure that she gets the quality sleep she needs.

So often we hear people pride themselves on getting by with only a few hours sleep. Margaret Thatcher famously boasted that she only needed four hours sleep a night. Similarly, if you believe what you read, Martha Stewart, Madonna and Jay Leno all claim they can function on four hours sleep per night.

So it’s refreshing to hear someone intelligent and successful championing the value of sleep. Last year Arianna launched Sleep Challenge 2010; a one month sleep challenge, urging women to literally sleep their way to the top. Then, in an inspirational talk at a TEDWomen conference in December 2010, Arianna argued that the “way to a more productive, more inspired, more joyful life is getting enough sleep”. If you’re not already persuaded of the power of sleep, I recommend watching Arianna’s short talk, below:

Enjoy and be inspired!
