Arianna Huffington: There is more and more scientific evidence about the impact of mindfulness and meditation in our lives. Now, in remarkably vulnerable and moving prose, she explains that money and power are a small piece of success, the most important piece is the Third Metric—which incorporates not only well being, but also wisdom, wonder and giving. With evidence and inspiration, Arianna gently shows us how to face the craziness of life today with awareness, grace and a sense of humor. Even slight exposure may set you on a path to far clearer seeing, a radical resetting of your priorities, deep contentment, and, of course, thriving. Arianna Huffington's personal wake-up call came in the form of a broken cheekbone and a nasty gash over her eye -- the result of a fall brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep. 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.

A must read for anyone wishing to live life more fully. Now, in remarkably vulnerable and moving prose, she explains that money and power are a small piece of success, the most important piece is the Third Metric—which incorporates not only well being, but also wisdom, wonder and giving. You open the book describing your collapse in 2007 from exhaustion leading to a broken cheekbone and a round of visits to doctors and hospitals for tests. As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. The list of all the conditions that these practices impact for the better—depression, anxiety, heart disease, memory, aging, creativity—sounds like a label on snake oil from the 19th century! Mark Hyman: All so true. The unplugged version of myself was better able to give these things my full attention.

Death and Creating a Life of Well

Rarely comes a title that makes you stop whatever you are doing and look at yourself in a new light, look within. In the United Kingdom, prescriptions for antidepressants have gone up 495 percent since 1991. Indeed, 2013 was the year when meditation and mindfulness finally and overwhelmingly stopped being seen as something vaguely flaky, vaguely New Age-y, definitely California, and fully entered the mainstream. And the percentage of adults taking antidepressants has gone up 400 percent since 1988. With evidence and inspiration, Arianna gently shows us how to face the craziness of life today with awareness, grace and a sense of humor.

Except this cure-all is real, and there are no toxic side effects. You were clearly running on empty, as I know so many people are—tell us about that experience and how it led to your larger wake-up call in terms of health and well-being. Arianna has reflected on and struggled with how best to define success ever since I met her more than 30 years ago. In Thrive she's created a new paradigm for redefining how to systematically build a life of purpose and balance and accomplishment— the whole life we're all ultimately after. 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. Emotionally, mentally and physically, I had more space to create. But the areas in which she was wrong were quite disturbing.

That third metric, she writes in Thrive, includes our well-being, our ability to draw on our intuition and inner wisdom, our sense of wonder, and our capacity for compassion and giving. They don't commemorate our long hours in the office, our promotions, or our sterling PowerPoint presentations as we relentlessly raced to climb up the career ladder. That third metric, she writes in Thrive, includes our well-being, our ability to draw on our intuition and inner wisdom, our sense of wonder, and our capacity for compassion and giving. But seven years of twelve-hour days later, she began to have second thoughts about where she was going. Turn off your cell phone, your email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and every other tool of the stressed-out, distracted world to spend some time thinking about grace, joy and wonder.

I only try to dance better than myself. One important factor in facilitating a good death is whether the dying person shared their wishes, which should be an encouragement of more open discussion of the topic. This is the guiding truth of the Well-Being section and, indeed, of this entire book. The architecture of how we live our lives is badly in need of renovation and repair. Thrive is a clarion call, a meditation, and a practical response to the question of how to live. I think what she is getting at here is that whereas an obituary might be more about the first two metrics work and similar accomplishments , the eulogy is more about what the person was like as a person.

Eating a meal without Instagramming it. They may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we're going to topple over. You make the point that even a brief meditative moment can have a restorative effect. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. They don't commemorate our long hours in the office, our promotions, or our sterling PowerPoint presentations as we relentlessly raced to climb up the career ladder.

She is the author of fourteen books, including Third World America and On Becoming Fearless, and the mother of two daughters, Christina and Isabella. As the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group -- one of the fastest growing media companies in the world -- celebrated as one of the world's most influential women, and gracing the covers of magazines, she was, by any traditional measure, extraordinarily successful. I was working eighteen-hour days to build The Huffington Post, while being a mom to my two teenage daughters. In the places where she was right, we certainly did need her to elucidate them. That third metric, she writes in Thrive, includes our well-being, our ability to draw on our intuition and inner wisdom, our sense of wonder, and our capacity for compassion and giving. We need a new way forward.
