Arianna Huffington has launched a new retail concept designed to promote more restful and productive lifestyles

Arianna Huffington, former Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, one of the fastest growing media companies in the world, has been a long-time proponent of meditating and unplugging from everyday life. In an effort to further amplify her message to slow down, she has launched Thrive Global, a startup whose mission is to teach people how to lead more productive lives.

Thrive Global opened a pop-up store in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood on November 30, full of new and old technology that helps you unplug from your digital addictions. Products such as a charging station for your phone that looks like a mini-bed to old-fashioned alarm clocks that distance you from your phone can be found in the shop.

Huffington describes Thrive Global as having three main platforms: a media platform that pulls together all the latest and research and science on how to live a productive life, a corporate platform that facilitates workshops with employees to help them achieve a work-life balance as well as presenting the benefits of rest, and thirdly, a retail pop-up shop which has an accompanying digital shop.

The Thrive shop on Broome Street in Manhattan will be open through January 2017.
