"Week with ABC's Amy Robach and Dr Jennifer Ashton how do you explain to your kids about the current atmosphere what they're seeing what they're hearing the protests and racism well you can save your kids listen you know how you feel when you ask me to do something and I say no and you say why and I say because I said so all these protesters and that's not good enough because I say so it's not good enough so you taking to the streets they take and use their mouths and in a thoughtful and for the most part very orderly way saying that we disagree and that that is a natural part of life and we can teach our kids to think and to how to disrupt when they're feeling something that they don't agree with so it's a really opportune teaching moment about how to be creative creative thinker and how to stand up for when you disagree with something and Janet you always say that obviously these tough conversations have to be age appropriate but how do you recommend that we talk to our children about the police in general what we don't want our children to be afraid of the police and we just say you know how sometimes there are people who may have the right intention but they do bad things most of the police are good people you can go to them for help and most of us still do but there are some police officers who made bad choices but we want our kids to see the police as a safe entity as a safe structure because they do help us Jan just mentioned the age appropriateness so I ask what's the youngest age you should start talking with your child about these difficult topics well as important as it is to talk about difficult topics like racism which we know has existed for a long time you know when kids are three or four as a child of color they will experience incidents whether it's at a classmate that says something a teacher so whether we know or not as parents it's happening so what we can do is expose our children of all colors to books that have characters that are black listen to their conversations and when your child says that something has happened to them because of the color of their skin or because of their hair texture we need to listen and we need to show them that we are doing something about it doesn't mean being angry but showing them in a calm thoughtful way about how to handle an insult or slight make specially to other adults to make sure it doesn't happen again we can no longer ignore the pain that racism causes to our children and is there ever a situation where you would recommend actually shielding your child from racism as a topic I would never recommend that you shield your child from racism is topic because as important as it is the conversation about racism it's about anti racism and what does that mean that means that we teach our kids not that we're all alike but the we could have the same values and our differences can suggest beauty our differences can be something that we learned so when there is an incident that is unfair with there's an incident where somebody tries to use our power in a way that's destructive we need to address it as a teachable moment and in terms of those teachable moments how can parents explain in the best way to their children about their race and about other races one way is to stop using the word race which we know is a social construct it's a meaningless term talk about people in terms of their ancestry their history their culture how they see themselves in terms of their ethnic origin and Janet I mean mental health professionals like yourself are are in short supply as it is what resources would you recommend to help us start this conversation about race well I just came across the great organization its embrace race dot org that has wonderful points for parents to talk with their kids and also buy books that have different characters you know all of the snow a snowy day as were Keith was written in nineteen sixty two it's the number one book taken out of the New York Public Library and what does it show a young black kid Peter who's going out to the white snow use books like that and just see how your kids react but show them haven't experienced different cultures and different races and books are a great way to do that you're listening to common news at twenty and fifty past the hour on komo news now it's time for the propellant children's money update a new survey of builders across the nation shows that sales of newly built homes leapt twenty one percent in may compared to a year earlier the survey conducted by burns real estate consulting found that sales.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

"Corona. Advise you had a you brought this study from Johns Hopkins which you wanted to talk about. It says that we are ranked number one of the world for preparedness. But there's there's more to the story so you heard. The President mentioned that we mentioned this on Good Morning America on Monday of this week. People go online and read this. It's called the G. H. S. Index. In October of last year Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. They ran their fourth global. Pandemic Preparedness Drill. They picked for their mock drill. A Corona virus slow. They had to pick a high impact respiratory pathogen. That's why they picked their has happened to start in South America again. It was a mock drill anyway. They evaluated data from one hundred and ninety five countries six categories. They asked over a hundred different questions. Like how many people in your country are mobile phone subscribers? How many people have access to the Internet? How many doctors do you have? One hundred thousand people all publicly available data. It's good reading you guys. This is now. I'm GonNa hit you with some numbers. Do you want the good news? I or the bad news. Here's the bad news. We I like the way you think. Bad News they found that there is no country in the world that is fully prepared to deal with an epidemic or pandemic overall the preparedness is weak across the globe. There are some numbers that jumped out at me that I think are concerning to say the least. Seventy seven percent of countries cannot report lab data in real time. So that's why when I tell you when you hear this case count okay I understand. It's something it's better than nothing. But there are countries that it might be a week till they're able to report their data. Okay and real time definition varies. Is it a day is? It's several days that week. Only twenty two percent of countries they assessed can even transport specimens nationwide. That's a problem. Only seven percent of those one hundred ninety five countries that they analyzed are prepared for a pandemic. The good news is we are ranked number one.

What is your takeaway for ultimate health and your life? Now I think for me. Ultimate health is about Out as I said it's not about perfection. It's about being the best you can be at any given time and some of that is under our control and some of it isn't isn't but the part that is under our control should be ultimately maximized or optimized in my opinion and. I think if we do that then we can achieve Steve Ultimate health at any point in time and that's not only physical health but it's spiritual health mental health emotional health psychological the logical health behavioral health.

"We gotta talk about my favorite challenge and this was actually the last one in the book December and that is laughter and I love how you got really personal in this one talked about how this involved a dollar white era and this was her daughter and you had it. I think it was in a closet. So talk about about how you came up with this in y laughter is such an important thing for all of us was really one of your favorite ones. It was my favorite to read. And I think it's one that's what's more people need to take on and implement within their healthy lifestyle. It's not something that's talked about enough. Yeah and I just think it's so important. We're all taking life so seriously obviously. We're all so busy. It was just easy to picture you as you're telling your story in these different scenarios being a cab with your tier on you talked about taking aching mason for a walk with the tier. I know you were hidden. You mentioned we're out in direct public when you were taken for that walk but you're getting out there and you're you're being vulnerable in. I'm having fun again. I think this is just something that all of us need to hear about more in an embrace. I mean I'm so glad that it really resonated with you. Do you know the story behind the laughter challenge was I realized again and part of it was you know as I shared with you coming out of the worst year of my life but also you know I have to really serious careers as a physician. I'm literally in charge of my patient's lives and what I do on. ABC News is very serious stuff. You know it's high stakes. Millions of people are listening. I have a very like margin of error of pretty much zero zero and I felt like in spending some time with some children just socially I looked at those kids and they were these. Are School College children so you know not. Teenagers not already kind of on their way to being jaded and tainted unfortunately and I looked at these little kids and I saw how much they laughed. I'm really into kind of a spiritual aspect of life. It's not scientific so you don't hear many Western trained. The medical doctors talk about it. But I'm really into that and I had heard a lot of people say you know our spiritual journey your spiritual journey my spiritual journey and I realized that part of that I think is reconnecting with our inner child. And what do children do. They laugh a lot. They do a lot of things before. Are they get tainted and jaded by life on by the world but they laugh a lot and I wanted to bring more of that into my life and so I wasn't really sure how to do it because I wanted again. My criteria for all of these challenges was that they are cheap. Easy Fun. Don't take a a lot of time. You can do them anywhere. And so that doesn't mean going to a comedy show. That doesn't mean watching a funny movie. You know those things all take too much time in money honey and etc so I thought what could I do. That could try to bring more last year into my life and literally. My answer was staring me in the face in my closet in the form of this one dollar Toy Tiara that my daughter had gotten when she was like five years old and I had always kept opted in my closet ironically because it represents like the antithesis of who I am the type of little girl I was and the type type of woman I am like. I'm a jeans and sneakers hair in the ponytail type of adult not that. There's anything wrong with this. But when I was a little girl I never had a Barbie doll. I just was more of a tomboy so for me. It was already kind of ironic and comedic that I had this Tiara in my Mike clause in the first as an adult but then I decided that my monthly challenge to bring more laughter into my day could start by just putting that. Tr On and walking around my apartment. And I had done that years and years ago just as a joke actually to get my kids. It's to laugh and what I found when I did then was that I actually laughed as much or more as they did when I did that. So that became came my vehicle for the challenge and I got a lot of mileage one. Tr Had Jesse Ni- it resonated with me as well because we've always I've been looking for opportunities to incorporate more play into our lives. We are both playful people but you know work and life can sometimes get the better of you and luckily having a dog for us as as well as is a huge play. She's a sixty pound Australian shepherd full of life and energy so she keeps us on our toes and as we embark on our journey into parenthood. I'm actually thirty six weeks pregnant right now. Oh my God awesome. Congratulations there's like in this interview. There is there is uh-huh so super exciting as we're getting ready for this journey we've been talking about it recently. How we can't wait to experience childhood energy all over again and seeing the world through the eyes of our kid and going to Disneyworld again and I know you talk about that in the book is well? It's just it's such a precious moment because we do forget get how to be kids and how to access that little girl or little boy inside of us and just be silly. We forget to be silly and we are so protective yourself. That's right and let me tell you I'm so excited for you guys to experience that and there is no greater learning experience in my opinion than being a parent we think got as parents. We have so much to teach our children. It's the opposite. It's the other way around our children teach us. At least I feel that way every single day and and you know learning how to have that innocence that you know no judgment. Don't over think things do things that are fun just for fun sake. You know. It's like the things that we hear like go to the grocery store in your pajamas or play in the mud or get wet in the rain. You know like kids. Don't care about doing that stuff. Southlake we over think it as adults and we suck all the fun and joy out of so many things so I loved this month so much and I really felt it was one of the most impactful months. Not just for me but for the people around me because when you do those things that dat spreads like such a powerful like domino effect. It's incredible I have to ask. Where is the tier today? Oh it's still in my closet. Nice so it's still around actually right now as we speak. It's in my closet. But that's only because I brought it to the Good Morning America Studios for my book Promotion Ocean segment but usually do WanNa last lead is the only time I've ever said this publicly by the way usually it's on the table right next to my toilet. So isn't that ironic. That crown is next to the throne so perfect John. I gotta get into my second favorite challenge in that is mindful mindful tech. I know this is one that is affecting a lot of people these days where the technology has just changed so much in the last number of years and and you're somebody who partially by necessity has to take this to extreme because he or two jobs actually have two different cell phones. You're really open invulnerable honorable but the fact that you're actually in front of your kids a lot of times on your phone and they call you owed on it. I think a lot of times that happens the other way around. Your parents are trying to moderate their kids and their usage. So talk about that that scenario and how. It's changed over time first of all I learned during this month that I definitely think I am addicted to my device and how much time during the day I waste looking down down and when you're looking down by definition you're not looking up right so you're not seeing who's around you. You're not seeing the your environment. Your surroundings in some cases it could literally be dangerous getting hit by a car walking into something and so for me. It was kind of daunting. Actually because of what what you said about my careers in my work responsibilities. I can't go off the grid. That's not realistic for me. And when you talk about social media I engage gauge very closely with the Nice people on social so I try to stay away from any negativity but you know if people send send me medical questions that are general or asked me to comment on things. I try to answer them on social media.

"And I think it's important to point out too that we don't necessarily have to do all of these every day you're sharing twelve different experiments and and it's not necessarily each and every day you have to do all these activities and some of them like hydration and being more mindful of your attack a couple examples just just off the top of my head. Those don't actually take more time. Once you have the practice down in party routine that just becomes part of your day to day. Yeah I mean I I think one of the other things that I wound up really liking about this year of monthly challenges and I think about the book is that you are one hundred percent on point that these do not have to be done every day yet. It would be amazing if we all did all of these things every day but again this book book is not about seeking perfection. It's just about how many times during a month and then subsequently during the year can you do these things and I guarantee he if you take something like let's say meditation and you do none of it now and you start meditating for fifteen days out of the month. You're gonNA feel a difference. I can guarantee that so it does not require one hundred percent participation perfection and attendance to reap the benefits which I think is awesome and and the other important thing is that these things are done in isolation by laying them out over twelve months. You're focusing on that one thing which I know the beginning of your book you talk about. How if you have too many things which a lot of tend to do we get overexcited? especially in the New Year. We're like I want to drink more water. I want to exercise more. You do all these things you don't really know what's having being a lasting impact or the best impact especially when you change your food and your diet. I think it's brilliant in a way to really focus on each of these in a month because he can really assess. Is it test. It see what's working what's not working play with it and then move onto the next will. Yeah that's the key. I mean I think I loved that you like that concept to because you know I feel like as healthcare professionals. It sounds like we're on the same page with that kind of thing. You know when I see a patient and I need to put her on several liberal prescription medications for example. I will always try to start one at a time because then you know exactly kind of how that one one new variable is having an effect if you start multiple things at once you change multiple habits at the same time. We don't really know which one is giving us the biggest biggest bang for the buck. Which one is working well which one we may be? Don't need it all you know it's always ideal. I think to do things slowly and in baby he steps and ideally in isolation and it's hard for people because people get too excited and they want to try so much but you gotta just reach for the lowest hanging fruit the one that east kind of the most emotionally attached or something that you've been drawn towards doing and start there so it's very individual for people who are listening. You know you'll be able to kind of pick through do the different things and you know from listen to our show. We've talked about so many of these habits but it's nice to have it laid out in a way that you can really look at each month and this brings me to my next question. Question is I know you address in the book that you did layer some of these that they carried over into the next month. Did you structure that at all. It was just like okay. You know once I've started doing push pushups playing next month. I'm going to still continue to do it. She's not my focus. So take sir about how you kind of brought yourself through the year by layering or stacking all these different habits habits. Well that was an unexpected perk of this year of monthly health challenges because again I started looking at them unlike unrelated. Isolated kind of okay. January's this then February's this and almost immediately. What I found is after that it was over there is some residual lasting positive impact on almost every single one of them? So I didn't WanNa stop them because I I felt and looked better from that one month prior so I remember may eighth and I'll never forget that day because it was the first date of twenty eighteen eighteen where I had actually done all five challenges in the same day and I felt so good that day knowing that I had had done these things for myself or in some cases not on them you know that was a day where I didn't have any alcohol drink and so I just felt really good. Would I felt good mentally physically and that was kind of the idea. Is that by the end of the year. A lot of these challenges became incorporated braided into my day to day behaviors. And so that heart of it I loved Dat was something that I didn't expect or anticipate and it was a nice surprise and the other thing that I found really interesting. And this is where I put on my doctor and nutritionist had more than just you know. Lay Person doing this. This experiment is I believe very strongly not just in medicine but in life that when we think something is like perfect or going well. That's that's when we should take an extra minute to really study that again. Let's put the analogy until like our home. You know you think your plumbing is in good shape so you don't even WanNa check check it and then what do you know the next year. You have like a busted pipe. You know what I mean so I like to when I do a sweeping assessment of my health health and wellness and nutritional status as well as my patients. I look at everything even the things that I or someone else think don't need any improvement because you. It's sometimes really surprising what you find when you look at those areas. It's easy to Kinda get you know whether you call it. cocky or arrogant about yet the areas that we specialize in and then let them go. But it's it's really important to stay on top of that just to give our listeners but a perspective he said by eight you had felt good about covering so so much and that was in January. You did a dry month. February did push ups planks. MARCI did meditation April you did Cardio and may was less meat and more plants so so that's already covering a lot of three different areas e talked about above the head things like meditation moving your body and your diet so it's great that by almost I close to halfway through the air you already are feeling such a a full body transformation. Yeah it was really really great. Suck will meditation. This has come up a couple of times now and I know for you and the first time you delved into meditation was about four years ago and you took a four day course in. TM Hammer transcendental meditation. So how did you get involved with that. I really believe it was one of these. Examples of the universe was sending me a message and I finally smartened smarten up to be a place where I could hear it and receive it. I had been curious about meditation for. I would say a few years before I learned earned which was as you said maybe four or five years ago and I was curious about it because as I describe myself as this relentless self improver you know when I went down this checklist I thought okay. You know I get enough exercise and I eat pretty well and I don't smoke and I get enough sleep so so I kind of thought like all right. I have all my bases covered then. I started to hear and learn a lot more about meditation both in the media and in the Medical Michael Literature and I thought. Why am I not doing that? You know and it's this like foam. Oh basically I was having like health and wellness wellness related. Bomo and I thought why are doing this you know. Should I be doing it if someone's doing something that's good for them and I'm not doing it. I don't WanNa miss out and I didn't know you know how to get started and I heard so many people say you know there's no right or wrong way to do mindfulness which I do agree with. However I am way to Taipei for that? I am a big believer in like perpetual education and I kept thinking. There's gotta be a method. There's gotta be something to learn otherwise. I didn't feel comfortable to just start doing it. You know that would be like someone saying oh you want to try downhill skiing. Just ransom skis. Take the chairlift to the top on the mountain and start coming down. Like most people would never do that. And so that's how I was looking at meditation. And then finally you know so so many of my work friends and colleagues. ABC News have learned transcendental. Meditation which again. There's a zillion different kinds of mindfulness. I don't know any other kind than TM. But plenty of people do and love those other kinds so I definitely am not just promoting one kind but for me it. Was You know what I was was exposed to just socially through my friends and colleagues here at work and finally I said okay. That's it I'm going to go and take some lessons so I got in touch with the you. You know really really legendary meditation instructor. Bob Roth and I took four days of lessons at the David Lynch Foundation. And then I said to Do I really have to do this twice a day for twenty minutes because that's a lot of time and he said once a day yes twice a day as optional but Jen do this us do it for two weeks if you don't feel a difference after two weeks and I thought really and he said everyone feels a difference after two.

Dr. Jennifer Ashton - The Self-Care Solution

"Hi Dr Ashton how are you welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You guys congrats on the new book. The self healthcare solution and we'RE GONNA start off talking all the way back. It's December two thousand seventeen and holiday season had just wrapped up for you and on on a whim you decide. You're GONNA give up alcohol for January so take me back there and talk about this decision you know. I remember that New Year's you know how sometimes all New Year's tend to blur together. Actually remember that one because two thousand seventeen was the worst year of my life and so I I was really happy to say goodbye that year. That New Year's Eve we lost my ex husband and my children's amazing father to suicide in February of two thousand in seventeen and I had gotten divorced two weeks prior to that it was an amicable divorce and I thought that that was hard enough but then suicide struck our family and I literally spent the entire year trying to put the tiny pieces back together again and and I've realized as we rounded out two thousand seventeen and you know I think most of us get a little introspective when we start a new year. And it's it's kind of appealing to set new goals and try to you. Know think you're starting with a clean slate and I'm no different. I tend to do that as well but there was just so so much more loaded on that year and I realized that I needed to now. You know kind of walk the walk that I do with my patience and on the air at ABC News and really turn that critical doctors lens to myself and reassess the things that I do. You're don't do on a daily basis because I think it's very easy to kind of law out ourselves into this false sense of security like. Yeah no I'm good. I get enough sleep. I you get enough exercise. You know whatever but when you really scrutinize it almost in a scientific way you might get a different answer so I decided you know. Oh How am I going to start this year off and I thought you know what. Let me try an experiment of doing a dry month. Not that I drink a lot. 'cause I don't I'm kind a known as the to and through girl never have more than two drinks and I rarely drink during the week. It's usually just on a weekend socially so it's not like this is the same. This is a different conversation than someone who has an alcohol use abuse or dependence problem but I said you know why not try to do a dry because the last time I had done one I was pregnant and now I have a freshman in college so it had been a while. And that's kind of how the concept for these monthly wellness challenges started. And I never for ever envision doing twelve of them in a row I never envisioned making it into an experiment and writing a book about it but it just evolved and now that it did. I'm really really glad because not only did it affect my life and my health for the better but people are loving it and it's really catching on during January when you're going through the dry month at what point. Did you decide that. You might want to take this further and do experiments for the next twelve months wizar- or like a moment where that clicked for you or would that look like. I don't know that there was a moment. It was kind of a little bit of a gradual evolution. Oh I outed on Good Morning America on January second when I was doing a segment about women and alcohol use and just kind of threw it in as the last Kinda comment of my segment and when I announced it on the air sometimes I forget were the number one morning show and that there are five million plus people watching us and and the viewers just flipped out. Every you know we started getting inundated on social media with people saying I WANNA do. This too is a great idea. I'm in so I kind of just enjoyed the month of dry January and then I said well this was so much fun and people really liked it and I liked it and learn something from it. What should I do in in February and so one just layered on top of the other and it grew from there and you mentioned how you brought it up right away on? Good Morning America. How how important was that for you during this whole year doing the experiment having your audience on TV and your audience on social media there with you? And I think correct me. If I'm wrong a lot of the men at participating in the different challenges to Oh my God I mean it was huge. I think that one thing I learned earned and actually now that you made me think of it. I learned it in kind of healing and recovering from the tragedy of suicide hitting my family as well. There's real power in connection and community and doing something with someone else. Whether it's one other person or ten thousand other people is really really powerful and I think that these monthly challenges you know people really got into doing it with me with each other with friends with family and and so that component of it again. I didn't expect that but it wound up being really really important and it's amazing just what it can do for accountability polity. You know whether it's your partner or a friend or just one person or millions of Americans. It really helps with you to stick with that goal and to be able title to have this platform to share ideas. What's working what's not working? Here's what I need to do or just showing up every day. People are counting on me especially when you are the expert telling people you now. This is what we're doing so accountability. I think is really important piece of all these challenges and just changing Wallace goals in general absolutely and you talk about accountability and including people in what you're going through. I actually found that was one of the tips. That really helped me in dry. January is literally really telling everyone. I knew that I was doing it. Because you know people don't bother you. People don't pressure you more people than not said. Oh my God. That's amazing. I I WANNA do that too and you know so. It was positively contagious. If you will I think it was the case for all of the challenges that the more people knew about it. The more encouragement herge man. I felt it actually makes me think about the one month that you said you didn't really share and you wish you did. which was the sugar month? He found yourself failing right off off the get go with this one and by the end of the monkey realize oh my gosh. I should've told more people so that could've stayed on track. Let's dive into this one. Because I found it interesting that this was the one month that you it didn't hold yourself accountable. First of all you bring up a couple of really important behind the scenes benefits if you will of this book the Self Care Solution. which is that it does not require or expect perfection? That is not the goal. It's really about the process. Not The product I kept referring to it both in my mind and in the book as an experiment in self. So it's about what you'll learn about yourself doing this. You know you might learn that it's easier than you thought you might learn learn. It's harder than you thought you might feel and look better or there might be no difference or you might not like it or whatever. There's no bad outcome with any of these he's challenges. I wanted to pick kind of three basic categories so as you guys know. One of them was what we eat and drink or don't eat injuring the other. One was how how we move. And that doesn't necessarily mean exercise per se it could just mean basic movement and then the third category was anything above the next so sleep deep meditation laughter. Mindful technology that kind of stuff and when I picked the cut down added sugarman. This was the conversation I had with doc myself this is GonNa be so easy. I already eat so well I have a sweet too. I mean I was really fluffing myself up big time and of course you know it's that irony you know. Be careful what you say because it might come back at

Don't say not necessarily the right way. Yeah do you think the conversation should start earlier. At what age should a child be. Should you talked to about sex children.

"And then we talk about Jeremy, and yeah, I'm very grateful to Jen for coming on and opening up in the way in which he did and and for doing it in in an expedited fashion, so thanks to Jen. And here we go here. She is Dr Jennifer Ashton nice to see like why tough topic. But always great to see him. No matter what let me just start before we get into suicide. Let's talk about your history with meditation. How how did you get to meditation? So you, and I've talked about this on sad when we have like Wapping, ten seconds. You know, we're we're not working. And I feel like meditation is kind of like a club the ever feel that way. Right. Like when you meet someone who meditates you're like, oh, what do you do? What do I do like? And so I think you and I were like that too. And I think when you're first book came out, and we started I was shared with you my experience, which was I always been curious about meditation because I describe myself as a relentless self improver attempt her. So I'm always looking for ways to be healthier, especially as a doctor, right? And I kind of got to the point in my life when I was in my early forties where I thought well, I'm doing everything pretty well from the neck down. And I was totally ignoring the neck up. Right. I mean, not uncommon not uncommon at all. And so I had met a bunch of people coincidentally or maybe not coincidentally, if you believe in the cosmic universe, which I totally do who had learned meditation. And they were like, you, you know, it had changed their lives that had benefited their lives in so many ways. And finally, it was kind of like the straw that broke the camel's back, and I met one last person. And I said, okay. That's it. The universe is trying to give me a message. I need to learn. So I am so type A that I had to learn a method. A technique because for years people. It said, no, there's no right or wrong way. I don't agree with you. Don't. Well. I mean, there are lots of techniques. Right. What you can sit and close your eyes and think about what you're gonna have for lunch and think you're meditating. But that's not exactly, but I didn't know that. So as a complete novice as someone who is completely naive to meditation when I would hear people say, no, there's no right or wrong way. There's no method. I as a student of perpetual student just thought that can't be like that doesn't make sense to me. Right. It doesn't make sense to me either. What are you going to do? Just sit back, you know to I would fall asleep. You're the music of this fears. I guess you definitely need a technique in my opinion. Right. So the only technique that just coincidentally happened to present itself to me through these random people that I had spoken to about. It was happened to be Tiem or transcendental meditation. So I took my four days of sequential lessons and my. My teacher said I said, okay. So do I just start doing it? And he said, yeah. Twenty you know, really, it's twenty minutes twice a day. But if you do once a day, that's fine too. And you know, if you don't feel any different in two weeks, just stop, and I said what? And he said yet, no one doesn't feel different two weeks. And he was right..
