Huffington speaks to local business leaders

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington was in San Diego Wednesday to speak about the importance of sleep.

"In corporate America, where people are congratulated for working 24/7, if anyone says that in my presence at the office, I say this is like congratulating someone for coming to work drunk," Huffington said.

Huffington spoke about her new book "Thrive" at a luncheon of the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce. In the book she writes about life balance, detailing how workplace stress can have an effect on the well-being of employees and a company's bottom line.

Huffington says she encourages businesses to help their employees learn to deal with stress, get more sleep and unplug when they leave work.
