Thrive Global founder and CEO Arianna Huffington told Axios' Mike Allen this morning that she believes the CVS-Aetna merger is a "very good thing" that will ultimately make Americans healthier by accelerating a behavior change. She cited CVS' previous initiatives to ban tobacco products from their stores and move healthier products to a more prominent place at the front as moves that might now reverberate through the health care system for millions of Americans.

Her biggest lifehack: "My favorite time is at the end of the day when you declare an arbitrary end to the end of your day because there's never a real end of the day…and turning off your phone and charging it outside of your bedroom."
