Well, it's almost on the way to becoming a normal Thursday again here, you know, driving into town this morning, you sort of had the routine overnight traffic on some of the busy roads coming in and You're starting to see some of that pick up around here. I'm just, you know, kind of overlooking the West Lawn of the Capitol in right now, For the most part, it's all law enforcement and reporters in this particular spot, but I'm noticing more vehicles moving around. The rest of Washington. Sort of getting on T o another day. Almost here this morning and John just a question about the Capitol grounds themselves being in D. C. It's just known as an area you can kind of always go to catch the sunrise. People running there in the morning. Is there a law enforcement president kind of blocking everyone off from there still this morning? Are you able to access it? There is still some tape up around sections of the West Lawn. So some police tape and, um, noticed, not know. Normally, it's It's a lot of Capitol police all over the place, but I'm looking over at a parking lot. On the West side here, and there's a lot of D C police vehicles, one intersection normally manned by Capitol police officers. Instead, some National Guardsmen from around here and and actually Betty. Less than an hour ago, I saw a big caravan of New Jersey state police. Actually driving away from here, And I mean that's at least a minimum of a two hour drive. If you're coming from just, you know, the New Jersey Delaware border, so it's sort of a different police presence. There's certainly a lot here. Um, but I'm not seeing as many Capitol police is I normally would around here where I am right now. And just one quick question here. A John now we heard a lot from the federal government, of course in the overnight hours, But what's local D C government been like reacting to this? There's a lot of frustration really, from what it is. That's what led to this curfew. That's in place until six o'clock this morning. Not that it's been heavily enforced, but about half of your actual name or many of the arrest last night in overnight Sort of related to curfew violations. It's sort of ease up on that here this morning that if things were calming down, but there's just a lot of frustration that this all could happen. You know, D C police are certainly used to demonstrations and protests. No what they call around here First Amendment activities, But it's pretty clear that Capitol police were caught way off guard and unprepared for what happened. And it blemishes. The whole city in the city government is just Outraged and frustrated with the way things played out on, there's gonna be a lot of finger pointing about how it all happened, but for the most part that the city itself. Right now, At least you're gonna have a hard time putting any blame on the city or least you know much of the blame on the city because this all happened on federal property that's controlled by federal entities and in the capital in particular, and that's where a lot of the finger pointing A lot of the sort of look back.

Kathleen Patterson is the district's auditor. And, she says, because school shutdowns coincided with other shutdowns in the spring, it's hard to come up with the defense. Of answer. What is possible is to weigh the benefits and risks of what is known about the impacts of school closure policies to assess what risks a community is willing to undertake, the report says.

So many of us think okay. Ideal overwhelmed I've got too much to do in one of the things that we cut out. I is those that extra hour or two of sleep. But over time as you know, it takes away from your ability to solve the problems you're facing because your ability to think and to react into respond to interact with others is diminished when you haven't had adequate rest and recovery. And then, of course there's heart, so we've talked about the mind the body now heart the heart is a metaphor for our relationships in the first and most important relationship is your relationship with your self that sense of self compassion. We worked with the connect care. Create tool already and I talked about the science of south compassion, and then also the sense of self la, because how can we possibly be compassionate in loving to others? If we haven't extended that to ourselves? I, because then we're an empty vessel from which to give if we haven't given it to ourselves I, it just makes sense. and. The three components to solve compassion that I talked about earlier. I just think that they bear repeating so self kindness, common humanity. You're not being singled out in mindfulness just stopping taking the time to breathe through challenging situations like we did with that. Connect care create tool. And to just be observant into notice the emotions that are arising within you. That's really the best way to process them and to work through that. And then there would. We're talking about the heart in relationships. This whole concept of healthy relationships is is very important. We need to consider forgiving.

And understanding why questions matter, we talked earlier about solution focused questions that I call strong questions, so questions are such an important aspect building, our resilience in also sharpening our mind, and then to connect with others, so to understand other people's perspectives and understand the way they think this develops open-mindedness, and it also develops your mind in general, and then finally to analyze, so think about intended and unintended outcomes from potential decisions. You're that you're faced with. And analyze the through. You know potential gain and potential costs for decisions that you're. You're making right now and this thinking process is very healthy for your mind in. It's a great way to make decisions than and to. Perform optimally in your life. So. Another concept of the mind that I thought. I'd just selected to from each category because of our limited time today, but I wanted to talk to you about imagination in ideation, so creativity is such an important aspect. Building Resilience, being able to imagine a better tomorrow being able to match a better future beyond the maybe even the pain that were feeling today and the challenges that were experiencing today and the discomfort. And the discouragment that we're experiencing right now. So when we the employer matching nation of creativity are ideation, we can begin to imagine a better tomorrow and Dr Viktor Frankl, who wrote man's search for meaning and was imprisoned in the Nazi death camps wrote that one of the things that he believed was unique about the survivors. The people who lived through that experience was that they were able to imagine a better tomorrow. They were able to envision yourself themselves beyond those dire circumstances that they were found themselves in, so it's. It's a really key component to building your resilience and I strongly encouraged that you read the book man's search for meaning if you haven't read it yet and learn all of those pearls of wisdom from Dr, Frankl.

"Going to have a list of twenty four character strengths, a two page lists that that you can download, and as you look at that list. Look at about the top five. That's usually your top strength. Somewhere, in that range of four to six I like to save five and ask yourself as you look at those top strengths. Do they feel authentic to you? You're the only one who can have the final say on whether or not. That's one of your top straits or I call signature strains. That's that's kind of with. The scientific term is for these top strengths that that positive psychologists have identified them as your signature strengths, because it's almost like you're unique signature or your fingerprint. In, the world in how you use your strengths, because everyone uses their strengths differently, and actually there are over a sex Chilean possible combinations in a an individual's strength profile, so the way that I use my straits can be very different than the way you use your strength combinations, and there's so much variance that that positive psychologists feel that they're like a fingerprint of that unique. And you, WanNa ask yourself also does it show up often an energize you so if you're looking at your top strings? You Ask yourself that question to you feel more alive when you use those top strings to others, notice you probably had people say to you, Hey! You know you're such a great team player, or you're a natural born leader or you? Really you know are very curious about the world or Your very grateful person people may have mentioned to you and called out your strengths without being aware that that's what they were doing, and you can look back on those times as you look at the list of strengths and identify at whether or not there truly top strengths for you, and then last on this list, the question to ask yourself is if you were unable to express one of those talks strings, which you feel empty inside. Would you feel as the light had lost its savor because you couldn't express one of your top strings, so for example for me. One of my top strength is social intelligence, and if I found myself having to work alone long-term. Indefinitely without being able to connect with people on Zoom in other media platforms, it would be really hard for me. And I look for for the time that I can work with people live in person again. But it's very important to understand that if you if it's truly a top strength for you, and you don't make time to use it and look for ways to use it that you might feel as though you're withering inside. So when people used their top strengths. You can walk them in others and in yourself as well when I just wanted to share with you some ways in which you can spot strains, so there are verbal cues. People will speak faster they'll have clear more articulate speech, a larger vocabulary stronger voice. And they're also nonverbal cues. People tend to stand up straighter when they're using one of their strengths. You know just pay attention next time there. They'll have been I contact their eyes alight. They'll be more animated. They might lean forward, and and they might use their hands a lot of their Portuguese I'm Portuguese. So people will. Go show signs of being energized, and those are signs of using their strengths of character. So. There's also what we call a shadow side to strait's, so we use your strengths family. They show up the way they're labeled like curiosity, perspective, leadership, sast, and so forth. But you can overuse strain so for example too much curiosity can come across his nosiness, and you can under use a string, so two little curiosity can come across as disinterest.

We can work at building a network of people that support us even if you have one person that you can talk to that that you can interact with in a meaningful way, this can be a great benefit in building your resilience and it during. During this time of social distancing, we can still connect with people in.
