Media mogul Arianna Huffington on how she eats, exercises and sleeps

In the last few years, Arianna Huffington has made a fascinating career pivot from news media mogul to wellness guru. Last August, she announced she would leave the 11-year-old super-success Huffington Post to focus on Thrive Global, her new health and wellness company whose mission is to “end the epidemic of stress and burnout by offering companies and individuals sustainable, science-based solutions to enhance well-being and performance.”

While I’d been aware of Huffington’s message about the importance of sleep to health and success, I wanted to know more about her personal day-to-day wellness routine. Below, she lets STYLECASTER in on how she eats, exercises, and sleeps on an average day.

I start an average day by: Meditating.

For breakfast I had: Poached eggs and a (very hot) coffee.

For lunch I had: Salmon and fresh greens.

Today I snacked on: Goat cheese.

My go-to healthy drink is: Water!

The one thing I would never eat is: Cotton candy.

My favorite workout is: Hiking.

My guilty pleasure food is: Dark chocolate.

The one thing that always gets me motivated to work out is: Remembering how fantastic I felt after my last workout.

My winter health tip is: Use the sun setting early as another reason to go to bed sooner.
