Lately sleep has been taking priority over many things in my life. Let’s face it. It’s winter and hibernation is as natural as… well… breathing. The following video is a presentation for Ted.com WOMEN’s conference and is themed for and directed towards women, however everyone can learn something about success and survival in the modern world for the wisdom of the attractive speaker Arianna Huffington.

Be sure to click on the transcript on the upper right side to read along with her speech. Her accent isn’t too difficult, but it will present a small challenge for some students and it’s good practice for listening to a mild European accent.

How about the joke she wanted to make towards her dinner date? I thought that was funny!
