Canadians' Sleep Relationship Is In Crisis Mode: Arianna Huffington

"We all share a common need for sleep."

You can't cheat sleep.

It's a lesson Arianna Huffington knows all too well. The founder and CEO of Thrive Global hasn't shied away about her struggles with shut-eye. In 2014, she suffered sudden collapse from sleep deprivation that left her in a pool of her own blood and a broken cheek bone.

While many haven't suffered to the degree Huffington has, she says a growing amount of Canadians need to step back and look at their relationship with a good night's rest.

"Twenty-six per cent of the Canadian workforce reported having called in sick because of sleep deprivation," said Huffington.
