Wake Up to The #SleepRevolution with Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington is putting me to sleep. More specifically, her new book, The Sleep Revolution - Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time, serves as a scientific, research-based vehicle for positive changes in the way that we sleep each night. I live and work in New York, the city that never sleeps. It goes without saying that there is business to tend to night and day, there for we are consequently required to lose a few of those ethereal 40 winks on (frequent) occasions. The disservice that we are doing to ourselves is monumental. The call to action is for us to wake up to the #SleepRevolution

Wake Up to The #SleepRevolution 
with Arianna Huffington

After being called out, as only Arianna Huffington can gracefully finesse, for existing, essentially on "Mommy Magic" that even my sleep-deprived brain can neither define nor justify- I am going to sleep. (As soon as I complete this article at 3:39 AM EST).

Arianna defies the commonly held misconception that exhaustion is the price to be paid for accomplishment and success.  Maintaining a competitive edge combined with the oversaturation of technological devices create the perfect recipe for global sleep deprivation at its finest.

Sleep affects every aspect of our lives, The Sleep Revolution explores sleep, from its recorded origins through the centuries to the mystery and dreams interpretation to today’s advanced studies of sleep science. Continually updated and improved new research reveals the value sleep bears on our health, happiness, job performance, and relationships.

Presenting scientific recommendations and expert tips on techniques useful for achieving better, more restorative sleep, The Sleep Revolution provides valuable insight. Arianna Huffington and the #SleepRevolution are bring about drastic, innovative changes to our thoughts and perceptions about the ways that we understand sleep.

The Huffington Post is also launching the #SleepRevolution College Tour at 50 campuses. The goal is to spark a national conversation, based on the latest science, about the importance of sleep and the dangers of sleep deprivation, which is at the heart of so many stress-related mental health issues in college. To help students embrace sleep as a performance enhancer rather than something to be avoided, HuffPost has partnered with major brands, including Sleep Number, Jawbone, JetBlue, Marriott, Spotify, Lands’ End, Sleep Shepherd and Headspace, to host “sleep fairs” to give students tangible tools and products to make changes in their lives and to learn better sleep habits. Arianna and leading sleep experts will be speaking at campuses around the country, and there will be major social media campaigns, as well as sleep-themed blog posts and videos on The Huffington Post from students and professors.
In addition, The Huffington Post, in partnership with Uber, is spearheading a campaign to generate awareness around the dangers of drowsy driving. Lack of sleep can lead to cognitive impairment that’s as dangerous as driving drunk. Drowsy drivers are involved in 328,000 accidents each year, 6,400 of which result in deaths. Through collaboration with road safety advocates, this movement aims to get drowsy people out of the driver’s seat. In addition to activating policymakers and government officials, the campaign includes a dedicated PSA, sleep kit giveaways, and partnerships with companies committed to providing Uber rides for employees who work before or after a certain hour.
