The little Aussie bag of stress-busting goodness
Two Australian companies have been singled out by entrepreneur Arianna Huffington to join a global pitch to fight burnout and stress.
Huffington, a businesswoman and author who was the founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post news organisation, has turned her attention to a new project, Thrive Global, which aims to offer sustainable science-based solutions to enhance well-being and performance.
For the launch, Goodnight Co. has supplied the “Arianna Huffington Travel Essentials Kit”, a small travel case containing a silk pillowcase, silk eye mask, sleep roll-on, revitalize roll-on, and ear plugs.
Goodnight Co. founders Shea Morrison and Danielle Knight are Australia’s self-anointed “sleep partners”, retailing a range of products that promote good sleep. “We believe sleep is the cornerstone for good health, and if you don’t get a good night’s rest, it’s going to affect all areas of your life,” says Morrison (below, right).
Also selected to contribute to the Thrive project is Australian-owned stationery and gift brand Kikki.K, which has worked with Huffington to produce a Thrive Journal, Gratitude Journal and Dreams Journal as part of the Thrive collection of products.
Thrive Global spokeswoman Monica Lee says the Thrive project aims to prioritise sleep, well-being and productivity.
“Recent science has shown that the pervasive belief that burnout is the price we must pay for success is a delusion. Thrive Global knows, instead, that when we prioritise our well-being, our decision-making, creativity and productivity improve dramatically,” she says.
