Arianna Huffington’s Secret Revealed: Cheese

After Ariana Huffington collapsed in 2007 from exhaustion, she made some changes in her life, changes that have seeped into the culture at HuffPost.

No one is expected to answer work emails after hours or on weekends, for example. She also built sleep pods at the New York offices that she didn’t think would catch on at first, but now are constantly booked. D.C.’s recently renovated newsroom has mediation space, a yoga room and even a kegerator.

Taking time to recharge or get drunk, Huffington says, makes you a better employee. She didn’t exactly say that drunk part, but remember—kegerator. With two taps.

And then, there’s the cheese. Cheddar cheese, specifically. From the Bath Chronicle in the UK:

“Her other ‘little joys’ she says are ‘listening to the country music I love, having a great cheddar cheese, you know, looking at a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.’”

Hmmm. We prefer something a little more exotic to get through our days, like muenster.
