I recently finished the book: Thrive, by Arianna Huffington, who many of you many recognize as the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group. Thrive is actually her second book, where she: ” talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritizing the demands of a career and raising two daughters — of juggling business deadlines and family crises, a harried dance that led to her collapse and to her “aha moment.” (From the Hardcover edition.) I enjoyed the book and applaud Arianna in her attempts to redefine success. She focuses on the importance of taking care of oneself, speaks about the benefits of yoga and meditation. She also divulges into how she has transformed her daily sleep habits.
I’ve been getting headaches and migraines. My neurologist wanted me to go on more medications that will help me with the headaches and the migraines. She wrote the prescriptions and was about to send me out the door. Wait a minute. Can I try something else? Is there something that I could be doing or not doing? Something that I could be missing that could be causing these headaches? That’s when she asked about my diet and sleep patterns. Now we’re talking.
