"The architecture of our lives is badly in need of renovation and repair," Arianna Huffington writes in her recently published New York Times bestseller, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.

Huffington implores us to ask ourselves if we're really thriving -- or are we merely surviving?

Though we may be achieving success in the traditional sense, there's a good chance that those of us trapped in a cycle of stress and burnout, tech addiction and sleep deprivation are sacrificing a great deal of ourselves in the process.

Talking about these key issues, Huffington hosted a two-day conference with Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe - you can read the tweets, comments and see the photos from the live blog here.

Huffington will also be speaking at the Hay Festival on 1 June, talking about what Third Metric means, and her journey to finding a sustainable path to happiness, wellbeing and wisdom.
