On Monday, April 25, 2016, Chevy Chase Trust was pleased to host Arianna Huffington at an event for clients and friends. Ms. Huffington, a New York Times bestselling author, nationally syndicated columnist, radio host and international media mogul, founded the Pulitzer Prize-winning internet news platform, The Huffington Post. She has been named by Time Magazine as one of The World’s 100 Most Influential People and has appeared on Forbes’ Most Powerful Women list. Her 15th book, The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time, is already a best seller and was the subject of her presentation.
The event at Round House Theatre included a lively question and answer session led by Stacy Murchison, Chief Marketing Officer at Chevy Chase Trust. Ms. Huffington described what she calls a “sleep deprivation crisis” that is adversely affecting our health, relationships, job performance and overall happiness. She noted that one of the most important recent findings is that “sleep is essentially like bringing in the overnight cleaning crew to clear the toxic waste proteins that accumulate between brain cells during the day.” For a healthy, high functioning brain, sleep is essential.
Ms. Huffington highlighted the perils of drowsy driving, the benefits of nap rooms, and the importance of establishing a transition routine to ensure a good night’s sleep.
A cocktail reception followed in Chevy Chase Trust’s building, where each guest received a signed copy of The Sleep Revolution.
