This Is What Arianna Huffington Is Selling at Her New Pop-Up Shop
The former editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post and MAKER Arianna Huffington has a new pop-up shop and is selling something you may or may not expect: sleep.
The pop-up shop will be unveiled in New York, following Thrive Global's launch last week. The mission of the new store is to promote emotional and physical wellness in and outside the workplace.
"The idea behind Thrive is to end the delusion that we have to burn out in order to succeed and provide specific micro-steps, as we call them, that can make us not just survive, but thrive," Huffington told Fortune.
According to Fortune, the shop will showcase some of the startup's products, which include a mix of non-pharmacological sleep aids, high-end sleepwear, meditation guides, health-tech accessories, and wellness books.
Each of the products at the Thrive store "encourage people to take micro-steps to enhance their well-being," Huffington said.
Other high-tech gadgets featured in the shop include a nap pod for taking a quick snooze at the office, a crib that uses white noise and automated rocking to put a baby to sleep, and a virtual reality meditation guide.
The shop is opening up to the public until January 15, 2017. Watch Huffington's exclusive MAKERS story in the video player above.
