Arianna appeared on The Today Show on Wednesday morning to discuss the Third Metric. The women's conference will take place on June 6th and focus on redefining success in life and in the workplace.

Describing the third metric, Arianna said, "It's leaning in and also leaning back, leaning back in order to unplug, recharge, and renew ourselves."

The Huffington Post's editor-in-chief explained that in today's work culture, too many people are burning out too quickly and it's beginning to affect their health.

"It's really sad to see people driving themselves into the ground," she said, "It's better for the workplace bottom line if workers are not so stressed."

Arianna said she hoped the Third Metric conference would inspire people to think critically about work/life balance.

"We don't have all the answers but we think it's an important coversation for men and women to engage in," she said.
