Over the past few years I’ve totally prioritized getting a lot of sleep — at least 9 hours, which means going to bed just after tucking in my 7 and 9 year-olds! The difference is incredible: More energy, never sluggish in the mornings (OK, most mornings!), more focused and I lost a few pounds, too.

Needless to say, I am really excited about this episode! Media mogul, political pundit, single mom and Forbes’ ‘Most Powerful Woman,’ Arianna Huffington joins me on this awesome episode to talk about her New York Times bestselling book, The Sleep Revolution: Transform Your Life, One Night At A Time.

After the show, Arianna emailed to say our conversation “felt like talking to an old friend” — and I agree. In this Like a Mother episode, the Huffington Post co-founder and editor-in-chief and I dish about:

  • The indisputable, powerful, cannot-ignore science quantifying why sleep is really key to health, wealth and happiness.
  • How we could all save so much money and energy on beauty treatments if we just chilled out and got regular Zs (Jane Fonda and Jennifer Anniston told Huffington sleep was the key to their ageless looks).
  • Huffington’s own rock-bottom of sleeplessness— waking in a pool of her own blood, having passed out in a bout of extreme exhaustion.
  • The expensive professional mistakes Huffington made as a result of lack of sleep.
  • Huffington’s personal connection between rest, intuition and spirituality.
  • 3 easy, 100% free, and life-changing moves everyone can make now to dramatically improve your sleep— and life.
  • What Arianna Huffington wears to bed.
  • The high priestess of sleep calls me out on my secret bad bedtime habit (despite my proclamations of great sleep hygiene. Busted!)
  • Why the prioritization of sleep really is a revolution— one requiring a paradigm shift in our attitudes about work, success, wellness and even science — and what everyone from executives to politicians to workers to moms can do to push the revolution forward.

  1. That was wonderful to listen to. It probably added to it that I listened to it on a bike ride in the middle of the day :) I average a little less than 7 hrs, it’s something I want to do better with. I will use some of the tips!!

  2. Great episode, Emma! I average 7-8 hrs per night and, occasionally still feel sleepy during the day or while sitting in So Cal traffic. This book and podcast gave me new clarity around some bad habits I need to break to get better sleep. Must create a bedtime ritual and cut out wine after 8…sniff sniff!

  3. I am the most happiest woman on earth,when i was having serious issues with my Husband, my marriage was falling apart and i was devastated. My Husband left home and it became a very big and difficult problem i almost died from heartbreak, i have to find a solution, I went to 5 different spell casters they all failed me, I really wasn’t sure anymore if spells were real so as i was making a search one faithful day, i saw some great reviews about Dr Abalaka I was a bit skeptical at first but I purchased a love spell from him and he said he will take his time to do a love spell that will bring my Husband back in 24 hour,No one could have ever made me believe as he said my Husband reconciled with me, I felt good to have my husband back, when he returned him said he would never leave me again… he is the best spell caster i can count on him when it comes to all kinds of spell..his email: i see so many people testifying about his perfect work. thank you Dr Abalaka and may your Gods ever reward you for your good deeds.

  4. Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed listening to this. It made me think an want to take action in my own life. i KNOW i don not sleep enough and yet I continue to hit the ground running daily.
