Kelly Coffey, J.P.Morgan Private Bank CEO: My Thrive 28-Day Challenge

This challenge is coming at a great time for me.


This challenge is coming at a great time for me. The holidays, combined with year-end work for our clients, is my busiest time of year. In addition, I have been on the road non-stop for the past month and I am definitely sleep deprived. I was lucky to spend time with Arianna this summer, after we selected her book for our summer reading list. I interviewed her to highlight her research and to get some tips for our clients and for me. The best tip I learned was NOT to have my iPhone next to my bed while I slept. I had been using it as an alarm — but the temptation to look at it if I couldn’t fall right to sleep — or during the night — was too much! I now leave it charging in the kitchen and it makes a big difference! If I am in a hotel, it goes on the other side of the room or in the bathroom. The other great tip Arianna gave me is to start a new peaceful bedtime routine. I now read an actual book (no kindle!) and listen to soft music before going to sleep. I am committed to getting my 7 hours every night — even though I have an event or party every night through the end of the year. Wish me luck!

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
