WATCH: Arianna At TEDWomen On A Very Small Big Idea: Sleep

Posted: Updated:

Speaking at TEDWomen last month, Arianna Huffington talked about a simple idea with the potential to unlock billions of big ideas dormant inside us: getting enough sleep.

After fainting from exhaustion two and half years ago, Arianna began the journey of re-evaluating the value of sleep.

"The way to a more productive, more inspired, more joyful life is getting enough sleep," she said at TEDWomen. "We are literally going to sleep our way to the top -- literally!"

Sleep deprivation has become a virility symbol, especially with men, she said. But getting enough sleep is crucial for being able to see the big picture -- it's what is best for our own lives, our own careers, and is also what's best for the world.
