Here's What Happens When You Type 'Why Am' Into Google in New York

Arianna Huffington | Posted 07.24.2014 | Healthy Living
Arianna Huffington

Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google?

The thought of so many people hunched over their laptops or iPhones, asking Google, "Why am I so tired?" or "Why am I always tired?" is really sad. And the answer is not going to be given to us by an algorithm. But we can start by shutting off our devices and getting some sleep.
