“Your Time to Thrive”

Live the life you want, not the life you settle for.


What does it mean to thrive?

  • Moving from awareness to action – from knowing what to do to actually doing it
  • Embracing solutions that appeal to wisdom, wonder, intuition, reflection, and are steeped in science
  • Taking the time to rest and recover in order to fuel and maximize productivity, both personal and professional
  • Making the mindset shifts and habit changes that supercharge performance in ways that truly matter to us



Helping people build healthy new habits that improve their lives is more important than ever. Arianna Huffington launched Thrive Global to do just that–Thrive’s specific mission is to end the epidemic of stress and burnout and help individuals and companies unlock their greatest potential. Science continues to show that we don’t have to sacrifice our well-being in order to succeed; in fact, it turns out that well-being is critical to peak performance.

Our thoughts:

Studies continue to show that we don’t have to compromise our happiness in order to thrive and be effective. What the book wonderfully illustrates is that happiness appears to be crucial for maximum effectiveness when it comes to personal and professional goals. To learn to thrive, you must actually be willing to do what it takes to become your best possible version. Implementing science-based solutions that appeal to wisdom, curiosity, intuition, and contemplation must be a goal.  Taking time to relax and rejuvenate is something every individual needs to adopt as a continuous activity.
