Katie Couric Advocates A 'More Holistic' Approach To Life At Third Metric Conference (VIDEO)

Katie Couric, award-winning journalist, TV host and author, knows a thing or two about success -- and also about stress. The "Katie" host has worked to rise to the top of her profession while juggling a family and personal life. For Couric, real succes and personal fulfillment is all about taking a "more holistic" approach to life, rather than focusing only on a career at the expense of everything else.

After moderating a panel on the mind-body connection at The Huffington Post's Third Metric conference, Couric chatted with HuffPost Live host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin about what redefining success (the theme of the day's discussions) really means to her. Couric says the Third Metric is about having "a more integrated approach to everything you do."

"It's about talking about how you live your life in the in-between moments," Couric says. "It's not about the categories or compartments that people put you in when you choose a particular profession."
