Like Arianna Huffington and Kobe Bryant, sleep is essential to my phenomenal performance in all areas of my life - executive, lover, mother, champion for the downtrodden, role model, etcetera.

I applaud Matt Damon for his virtuous decision to use toilet water for the #IceBucketChallenge out of respect for the millions of people all around the world who lack access to clean drinking water. I am ashamed of my earlier suggestion that you use filtered water for this challenge; that was short-sighted of me (though my heart was, of course, in the right place, as it always is). I do not, however, recommend following in Matt’s footsteps and using toilet water to complete the challenge, only to follow that stunt by using considerable water to rinse yourself clean. Instead, I recommend that you simply channel the spirit of water through chanting and sage burning and use the power of Reiki to spiritually “spill” a bucket of ice atop your head — then write checks to The ALS Association and Damon’s Water.org tout de suite. Let’s conserve our resources and marshall them to those who need them most, my darlings! Also, may I recommend this chic vintage Chanel bottle holder for toting your eco-friendly, BPA-free, reusable water bottle around town?
