April's Book Review


by Arianna Huffington



What does it mean to be successful in today’s world? In being connected to the world 24/7, are we losing our connection to what truly matters?

This months review is thought provoking and easy to read book, Thrive by Arianna Huffington. She provides a really impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful.

As the president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group she is celebrated as one of the world’s most influential women and extraordinarily successful. Yet as she found herself going through a battery of medical tests to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond exhaustion, she wondered: is this really what success feels like?

As more and more people are coming to realise, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and an expense account. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success – money and power – has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers.

Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives through the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving, all based on the latest groundbreaking research in the fields of psychology, sports and sleep.
