I love this book – she just talks sense – from sleep deprivation to the creation of the third metric of success she takes you on a journey which makes you question what YOU need in order to thrive. And now there is Thrive Global which is packed with useful articles.

Daily meditations on the path to freeing your soul. This book can generate insights and reflections just when you need them – perfect for dipping into when you need a spiritual boost.
