Coronavirus Vaccine Q&A: Variants, Side Effects, And More
"You're listening to shortwave from npr. As more and more of the covid nineteen vaccines. Roll out. Here at npr. We've been getting a lot of questions from y'all questions like if i'm vaccinated. Can i still pass the virus to somebody else. What are the side effects of vaccines. How soon until we vaccinated enough people to return to normal so today on the show we have answers as part of a special segment. I just did on another. Npr podcast called. It's been a minute with sam sanders. Yes i am in the hot seat for this one. Y'all if you haven't checked that show out do it. It consistently makes me thank laugh. Cry it is so so good. I'm eddie. And you're listening to shortwave daily science. Podcast from npr. My dear friend who had a how are you. Welcome back to the show. I'm doing well sam. How are you buddy. I'm good. I feel like the last time we had yuan seems like forever ago but i think my biggest question with crow virus. Yes whether i could still pet other people's dogs. Oh that's interesting. That's an interesting version of that story because it was about whether or not you could kiss them on. The mouth is however members over the past few weeks. We have asked you our listeners. To send in your questions about the vaccine all right if folks were able to get the vaccine. Can they still carry and transmit corona virus to other people. So let's start off with what we know for sure right. We know that the vaccines that are authorized in the us. Do an excellent job of preventing symptoms of covid including those really scary severe symptoms. And let's just say the moment here on the show to acknowledge how monumental that is. I mean that means fewer cases that result in hospitalizations given our healthcare workers break that means less people dying every day. I mean that in itself is huge. And that's what the vaccines were designed and tested to do so. As far as whether or not vaccinated person could have the virus in their bodies. Pass it to somebody else. Even if they don't get sick there is some early. And i mean like really early data. That looks promising Some that shows that vaccinated people are less likely to have the virus in their body at all or they carry less virus. So that's all very good news but we still don't have enough data to say for sure that the vaccine cuts down on transmission or by. How much so for now we just kind of have to wait which means that vaccinated folks should still mask up. When they're interacting with people outside their household especially if those people earned vaccinated if we know that the vaccine will protect you from getting severe symptoms. Most likely is it safe for two people who are fully vaccinated to hug or like hang out in the same room. Yeah okay so. Here's what i will say about this. Because we don't know for sure if vaccinated people can carry the virus those vaccinated people just need to think about who else they are interacting with right. So if you're living at home with somebody who has severely immuno-compromised is in vaccinated. You would treat the situation differently than if you live by yourself right but if you are to vaccinated people. Maybe even wearing masks for. That added layer of risk reduction. I think you've reduced risk enough. You know to hug it out especially if you were to people that don't have like close contact with other people. I am a big proponent of risk reduction that still allows us to have some of our humanity right and requested. You know to vaccinated hugging. I would argue is one of those situations. People will argue with me. But i would say so. You know there are so many headlines it seems like every day there's a new variant of the corona virus who knows where they're coming from. How effective is the vaccine against other and newer variants of corona virus. So this is a great question. Great question other stumper. I wish your listeners. With throw me a couple of corona. So what i would say is. This is another situation where things are developing right. We didn't know about these variants like a month or two ago but there are some data that suggests that the vaccine might not work as well for a few of those variants. At this point you know most of the experts that we're talking to say they will still work right. That's the beauty of having vaccines that super super effective that even if they don't work as well against one variant they will still provide protection In fact public health officials are saying that the best way to prevent these variants from really taking off in the us is by having as many people vaccinated as possible so for now with the variants that we're seeing in the us. It looks like the vaccines will work. Well on most of them and still provide some protection on the others which is good news. All right As more and more people in my circles get the vaccine. I'm starting to hear them. Talk to me about side effects and a few folks. I know said i was fine. Second dose. I was like knocked out for a day. Or what in. General are the side effects of the vaccine. Yeah this is a great question. I'm really glad we're talking about side effects. Because i think it's important to talk about them and be transparent so all vaccines can cause side effects right. And that's because vaccines worked by kick-starting your immune system similar to what would happen with a natural infection so if you do get side effects like you get a little bit of swelling from the shot or you get a mild fever is just your immune system doing what we want it to do now. Rarely vaccines do more serious reactions like allergic reactions for example. So it's really important to talk about allergies with your doctor before getting the vaccine or you know if you get the shot and swelling gets worse after a day or if your other symptoms are getting more severe lasting more than a few days you should call the doctor but the overwhelming majority of the time sam for the two vaccines that are authorized for use in the us. The most common symptoms are pain at site of injection swelling As well as fevers chills aches feeling tired and and some people experience very little of those symptoms and some feel pretty uncomfortable. Like you said for a few days especially after that second shot because that first shot your immune system's like oh. Hey what's up what's up what's going on in that second job was like oh you like now. You're trying to see so so that is really your immune system really being kicked in action. So like you said. I've heard of people that need to take the day off after that second shot. Here's the thing. Sam those types of side effects. Go away right and you know. It doesn't always go away after a few days. Kobe right you know what i mean. So i think it's important to be transparent about vaccine side effects but also to remind people like for the overwhelming majority. This is not even close to being as bad as a bad case of covert all right next question for you. Let's say you're grandparent has been vaccinated But you a younger person have not. Can you still see them And is this scenario. A little bit safer for the more vulnerable person. Okay so this is. This is a good one Because it's all about assessing levels of risk. And like i said you know risk is not an all or nothing scenario and there's a lot to work through to make these types of decisions so let's walk through this example so you've decided you really really want to see your grandparents right. Your grandparents has been vaccinated. So you've cut the risk of them getting that bad case of covid down quite a bit. And that's big right before going. I would probably try to quarantine for a while myself Especially if they are in a nursing home. Because i don't wanna bring cove into that facility. Because i'm not just an interact with my grandparents. You know if they're in their own house maybe that's a different story. So that's all like before the visit. And then on the day of the visit one thing i would leave your audience with is when you're seeing anybody like the thing to think about is how do i cut down on the amount of air i am sharing with people right. That's the big if you can carry that one thing in your head. That's the biggest thing because most transmission happens in close contact through the air not through necessarily like groceries or stuff like that so that's important to keep in mind so if i'm going over to my grandmother's and she makes me call her that sam by the way the full grandmother she demands respect. You will not be called. Grandma i would be. I would be wearing a well fitted mask like we talked about. If i could and this is a huge one i would try to take it outside if i could if not i would want to get fresh air circulating in the room because fresh air circulation is one of the best things you can do if you have to be indoors and then the last thing to think about his time right. It's not just proximity. It's also time. So i'd make the visit pretty short too. I mean the cdc suggests less than fifteen minutes if you're indoors but that's variable so it's just about keeping that visit a short as you can and then after the visit like i said same thing is going in. I'd probably quarantine for a bit just to make sure if i got it. You know somehow from being out. And about i don't spread it. Gotcha gotcha We are seeing millions of americans getting the vaccine which sounds good and feels good. But when do we know that were there. Like what percentage of the population needs to be vaccinated before you can have her immunity. Yeah so okay. This is unsurprisingly. Another complicated one so apple over here over what. i'll take it. I i mean it's not my first choice but it's not my last okay. Okay so if you're not familiar with this term herd immunity happens after people have been infected or vaccinated instill. There's essentially nowhere for the virus to go. There's not enough susceptible. People left for corona virus Tune fact so there aren't those like massive outbreaks but there isn't one straightforward number to reach herd immunity a changes based on a lot of things the biggest one probably is the germ itself so for this corona virus. Some public health officials if thrown around that like seventy to eighty five percent of people would need to be vaccinated or infected to. Have you know the level of immunity that we would need and and the difficulty knowing the answer to your question sam like. When do we reach. That number is that we don't actually even know how many people have gotten the corona virus. You know realistically. There's a lot of infections that we don't catch for multiple reasons. There's a lot of people that have a symptomatic infections. That kind of stuff so that complicates we also don't know how long immunity lasts so for some diseases. You get once in your protected for years or your lifetime and that's probably not what's going to happen with this one really got those variants on the scene. You've heard of those variants. Those could play a role here too. So there's a scenario in which this first round the vaccine that folks get first two rounds they'll have to be more vaccine shots down the road. I mean there's the potential for that it would be kind of like a booster situation. Perhaps we don't really know yet right now. It looks like our vaccines are working. Really well but i know that there are some vaccine companies that are looking into developing more vaccines. That would you know basically be kind of a booster situation. So i think you know san we ask like when can we reach her immunity when things go back to normal you know i would argue and people would argue with a gun That herd immunity might not be a reality for this virus like some people might know. It's not it's not that bad. Some places might achieve something close to it but this is a global pandemic right like viruses travel with people who travel so real herd immunity. You know global herd immunity would be tough to achieve. And so you know. I think we have to learn how to live with this virus to be realistic. You know the coronavirus will probably be around to some degree for a long time. And so i think focusing on what we can do you know getting vaccinated if you can continue asking up physically distancing reducing your risk as much as you can the more we do those things right now the faster we will get to our new normal which sam. I am happy to tell you. We'll be much much much more livable than where we are. Now last big picture question for you. Matty like a lot of the answers around these questions are complicated and nuanced and data and information will change over time as scientists learn more things but is there any kind of certainty yet or any kind of forecasting on the uncertainty horizon. About what our springs and summers might look like regarding the scene. Can you forecast what the next few months might deal. I mean say It's it's really really tough. I wish i could give you a better idea of this but what it will say is that i understand the question. And it's it's something that i sit with. You know every single day. It's it's it's really hard right like to know when this thing is going to be over like when things are going to feel better and what a would say is that these vaccines are going to make a huge difference. You know when. I said we're not going to be corona virus free. That doesn't mean that it's going to be in our face like this all the time. I mean i. It could be something similar to the flu. Where still impacts our lives but we have systems to to live with it. And you know if these vaccines are rolled out quickly and equitably. I've heard public health officials talking about this fall or or maybe more at the end of the year like really feeling a lot. More of a return to normal. Even if it's not totally back to normal. But i think more importantly than predicting when it will happen is just you know keeping the faith that it will happen like knowing that this will happen we will return to this newish normal and and that we have agency you know and that we have a say in this so so

He's had been a guest and commentator amy. Tv shows podcasts. Magazines m practices at the concept of a cardiac longevity is very unpracticed in michigan. Welcome to the show joe. Thank you so much excited to share with the audience. Yeah so i wanted to kind of give out with some background on you. And and how you got into the space because you've kind of gone down a different role than maybe stanford medicine and things teaches. Unfortunately not because of any time in the in the slammer or any problems with my license in a somewhat thoughtful various er- pigeon Course but i grew up in detroit michigan Talking now from the suburb in detroit michigan attended university in ann arbor. Michigan graduated top of my class medical school. But i knew from about a swallow wanted to be a heart moved to dallas moved to kansas city out and training with the best skills and particularly treating heart attacks with angioplasty instead. You have some wonderfully people from australia. New zealand in the my mentor in kansas city was from all actually a dislike from new zealand allah but when visit i'll be of the difference between the do another very different entry but nineteen ninety way before you were born. I imagine or at least run it. I join back in detroit. Michigan big practice. And i was the guy running a night treating sick people coronary Cardiac cath lab artists. But i was even back then very interested in the other part the About our of health which is prevention nutrition. Lifestyles sleep stress. Nutraceutical supplements the whole thing. Much more light perhaps naturopathy and chiropractic. So i was always reading on my own incorporating little tidbits been using coenzyme q ten of people for thirty years my college or and then i'll percolating along as very happy guy got a chance to look down to. The university mentioned developed a preventive cardiology program. But i knew that there was something else that i really had an energy for something else. I mean that was doing wonderful. Things are day is the same thing every day. When wonderful big over i went back to university in two thousand twelve a whole year doing a university based courses integrative cardiology natural gas and pretty much nutrition thing adnan stunning that for decades. But i didn't know all the nutraceutical isn't about chemistry testing and the epa genetics and the protonix and we can use fancy words. I graduated and of course. I say in traditional practice but i ultimately with some thought took a big breath five years ago and says you know what i've done enough cath lab emergencies. That mouse running three hassles on the weekend alone. A great practice. I one focus on prevention and i looked around the country. I could barely find in the united states preventive cardiology practice. That was not attuned to only prescription. Drugs are printing preventive cardiology practices more precision more prescription. I wanted to about more health lifestyle disease reversal. I gleaned from various people what i could kinda created a model. I left the insurance system. You wanna have a sleepless night. As a physician who's always had a whole room full of baylor's and medicare and blue cross as we call in the united states and others and tell people in the city of detroit that is not beverly hills los angeles by a reasonably prosperous busy city with auto industry. But i don't take insurance. I can't even take your insurance them out of the system and launched in five years ago and yes. There's always challenges. My tears thought that maybe. I did. Have alcohol rounds. Drug problem slices. Is he doing all as they didn't understand. It has been the best decision. I don't think would have been as meaningful if i didn't pay the price. All those years of doing traditional medicine I'm respected because know what heart catheterization angioplasty bypass Medications use them when needed by I'm very much dedicate myself as upstream cardiologists. I'm the salmon trying to go upstream. Everybody else is going the other direction. But there's a lot of people out there and you know. I i'm sure for practice that are looking or a different path. They're just tired and they feel tired too many drugs too. Many ten minute appointments with dr the game now. It's a good nurse or a physician since i've provided alternative of time education a different approach. And it's so gratifying. Amin that i'm sixty one years old. I don't know what the word retires. Because i love what i do day after day today
God Designed Wellness
"With everybody. How god kind of transition do you. How did it start that you went from. I mean obviously. I think people can. They can understand even relate to going from being a stay at home mom and then as they grew you worked into a career but then how do you take this career that you worked hard to become a teacher and now you literally transition into health and wellness kind of walk us through that journey in kind of what god was. What was he planting seeds along the way or did it happen. Suddenly i would love to hear that. It was a very gradual thing again. I grew up Which you know in southern california. It's the weather's great. People eat quite differently than they do. In the mid west gives me in the midwest and my husband and my kids. And i had gone to visit family in north carolina for christmas and this was still back in the day where you took pictures and you develop them and you and my sister sent me a picture and i looked at of course. I glanced at everyone else. And then i did what most of us do. I narrowed in on myself. And i thought oh my goodness what have i done and i was probably at that time. A good thirty to forty pounds heavier and it was like how did that happen and again the picture a picture doesn't lie and that's when you notice that and about that time i think i was starting to ease into menopause and then it wasn't but a couple years that my oldest daughter decided to go back out to california to san diego to college and little by little she'd come home each semester. Erin summer and say. I'm not eating this anymore. We don't eat that and then it was like okay. Whatever and i it was milk and then it was pork and then it was you know she was suddenly paying more attention to the shampoos and the ingredients in them so if anything my daughter without even realising it starting to see her be more aware of what she put in her body as well as on our body made me start to think again. You're i was starting. Menopause feeling tired extra way. No energy sleep and so really. It was a combination of all of those things that i realized i needed to go back to the basics cooking meals taking walks doing more things and started to see my health improve and then it seems like you know friends would make comments or ask questions and so i became sort of the go to a little bit for people. How do i do this or what are you eating. That looks really good and out. That was it and it was something that i loved talking about. I love learning about. And so i think just was a natural progression and i love teaching. I like talking to people making connections so it just was a natural fit so then i signed up or a year long a certification program to be a health coach. That's how it all started. It's awesome and i think that It's a really beautiful picture of how It's kind of full circle. I feel like you know we. We don't not necessarily. I mean some families. Just it's cultural the way that they eat and And so it's even harder to break those habits but but for some people they started off kind of you know everything was even homegrown for some people and then you just get busy and you get in that phase of life and then it then it just becomes a habit of convenience until something happens. It's interesting because i feel like people take their health for granted until their health is not health anymore

I wanted to quickly talk about what breath work does for your body and a device that has recently caught my attention lately. There is helping me switch off my negative stress. And then we'll begin our session together all right so firstly stress. Activates your fight or flight. Sympathetic response leaves you feeling distracted overwhelmed and makes it difficult for you to get sleep. Stress also plays a key role in our evaluation sometimes especially to run away from a predator or to solve it challenging problem. You need the energy to make it happen. That's when your heart rate increases your cortisol levels rise and your blood shoots to your limbs but this is like stepping on your gas pedal of your car and it's not really sustainable because you need to at some point switch off your stress and start relaxing so their energy can be used for other functions like digestion and sleep and creativity when that switch off does not take place. Your body is constantly releasing stress. Hormones like cortisol making your breathing shallow and fast and sending your heart rates up and your heart rate variability down. What does hundred variability h. r. e. which is most reliable invasive biometric of stress measures the balance between your batta sympathetic rest and digest nova system. And you're sympathetic. Which is your fight and flight branch of your nervous system. A high heart rate variability gender lee indicates a strong guardia vascular system and low levels of stress being in a constant state of fight or flight makes it physiologically harder to focus harder to meditate. Relax sleep or even exercise because your body and your mind think that you are under threat and needs to be escaping danger and not sleeping not focusing on your work now like i said this does of abyss.

Do You Need a Change?
"WanNa preface topic with a little bit of context I'm not talking about that on one day you feel tired or you'll feel like Kinda doing the tasks on your to do list. I'm talking about consistent days maybe even weeks where you start feeling like I don't know why I'm doing this. I'm not happy. This is not the way I wanNA live. I built a business maybe that I don't want or simply just don't enjoy I I want to recognize that these feelings are real. This is not uncommon it's very common and it doesn't make you a bad entrepreneur doesn't make you a week and this is not the time to start blaming yourself for putting yourself in this quote unquote position. First of all, it's an honor it's a privilege for you even have a business. And free to even be in this position where you making this decision. So recognized that I the next thing is that it's very easy to make really big decisions in moments like this in moments of frustration in moments of feeling down feeling low feeling really just you know fed up and tired, it's very dangerous to make big decisions like leaving your company selling your company, closing things down changing things. So the first step I would like you to take if you're in this position is actually do nothing you have to make some time put it in your calendar, see as like mandatory for Your Business and Your Life to take a few days off I recommend taking two to three days off. That is maybe bridged with a weekend. So maybe you'll be in total four or five days and when I, say off I literally mean off like you have to take a digital detox you have to shut off all notifications you have to step away from Your Business, and this is not asking you should be able to step away for your business for a couple of days we also need to step out of your current environment whether you work. From home or out of an office or whatever it is, you need to spend a few days away and this can be something as simple as just getting an AIRBNB in a location. That's maybe in nature or trying to do here is you wanNA start looking inward and not really worrying about the outward now worrying too much about what's going on the news or on off twitter you want to settle things down a little bit. We want to minimize the noise so that our thoughts can manifest so that we can have time. To think clearly. So we have time to really things in perspective when you're in the weeds. When you're in you know on the battlefield, it's really hard to focus on how to get out of the war. You know Y- bombs dropping on, you got bullets flying UNITA retreat a little bit. You need to go away for a little bit away from the violence and all the noise. I know this is a weird analogy but just hang with me here so that you can come up with a strategy you can come up with. A practical way you to resolve the issue I would call this more of a sabbatical than a vacation. This is a chance for you to really work on yourself a little bit This could be maybe an exercise retrea or some sort of meditation or tree. It could be even just you going out again getting an AIRBNB somewhere in nature out in the woods or by the beach and just having you know a fresh food and medicine time just read and have a chance to just like be with yourself without having to have any distractions any noise of the business this is a chance for you. To step away from things. So if there are other obligations, you have I really recommend trying to do by yourself. So you have kids try to like see if you can get you know the parents to to to take a look at them or take care of them for a bit or a family friend or something you know I would recommend would be going You have to be alone you can with your significant other or maybe a friend were you can actually have some discussions and just have some moments of peace and the point here. Is that you don't have any other obligations to do anything other than focus on yourself. This is the first step. You just need some time away because sometimes we just need that we need a little perspective need a timeout. We need some things to kind of pass a little bit and we come back maybe feeling you know it's not that bad This is just a bump in the road. I just need to change a few things in his change a few habits that I'm making I'm maybe doing too much need to hire for this position. I can fix this situation This often is all you need to do because it just you know that time away makes you think of solutions allows you to think, Hey, what I really don't like about the situation what are they don't like about my business right now Why don't we just hire out for that? Why don't I change my involvement in that? I know people that have made the decision instead of selling your business or giving it up just hiring a different. CEO Saying I'm hiring somebody replace myself I still own the business so make the money but I want to be involved that much I'm just going to be the chairman of the board I'll be part of the decision making I'll be owner founder but I don't want to deal the day to day maybe that's an extreme step or maybe something you can't afford right now but. You get the point there. Some things you can change nothing is not solvable. You can always solve especially in established business that's growing. That's maybe generating revenue. These are all positive. You don't WanNa Kinda just throw the baby out with the bathwater but what can happen is after your sabbatical, you come to the conclusion that it's time to move on You may be had your full of this opportunity of this challenge maybe enough ild anymore maybe you changed over the years and you're just not. Feeling it, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Now, you know now you have a plan of action. Now, you just need to plan how you going to transition how you going to give. Are you going to sell the business to somebody? Or you again to step away and have somebody run it the day to day, and you just be the owner and you work on some other things with your time. These are all great options. But the one thing I do recommend is if you are going to change if you're are gonNA leave and stop doing what you're doing you better have something else you're going to be doing there's nothing to prepare you for the challenge of leaving something and having nothing to do a lot of people talk about this but if you ever sell your visit. Out Your Business Changed Management and you work on something else they'll be a gap. They'll be something that you miss the sense of purpose, a lot of your you know significance in who you are as a person is intertwined with your relationship with the business. So it's always good to make sure grab onto another vine before you let go veal vines. Have some sort of plan even if I'm GONNA, write a book I'm going to start a new blog I'm going to. Be Like I'M GONNA throw my money on my time and my energy. But you should have some sort of starting point. Some sort of thing I'm going to do I'm going to get into this new thing I take some classes I'm gonNA. Learn had to do some woodworking because I'm going to be a star furniture business whatever the you want to land safely onto something.

Believe it's possible. But what does that? What do you think? What does that? What like? Yeah listen I think. So, a couple of things number one is. It can't be sort of overstated how significant the disruption has been in twenty twenty for small business owners. I. Mean You if you're a small business owner listening and you feel tired and exhausted and worried. You know you're. Not Alone and this has been a really hard year. So you know I just you know I always wanted knowledge sort of the emotional reality of this moment because for many people are self included, right? You see your revenue go down a significant amount literally overnight no doing of your own and it's ridiculously stressful and so that is that is very real and we see that in. Almost all of our customers now with also true the silver lining. No Pun intended. Is that you know yes, we've watched all of our small businesses, their revenue go down things have gotten hard. It's also true that not one of our small businesses has out of business and the reason I think that's true. I is three things and this this goes to answer your question Diane the first. Is having a resilient mindset and we can talk about this more. But I in before Cova I talked a lot about mindset and how I thought the trick to sales and the trick to revenue really started with mindset. And I see that you know a million times more today than I. Did you know six months ago and so strong mindset staying positive? Not becoming a victim to the moment. But you know staying in control seeing all of this crisis as both risk and opportunity, and just choosing to believe that we will be okay you know and again there's a million things we could say about that. But that's number one and number two is getting really creative and adaptable. Now creative and adaptable does not mean that we start you know running around like chickens with their heads cut off. And getting really unfocused and getting you know really chaotic and throwing out what we originally did and try to start something brand new. But it means that there is always a new way to do what we do. There is always a new way to innovate. Even in my business journey, we used to be sort of consulting and training business and we've completely innovated how we do what we do, and now you know were software as a service company. But what we do have ultimately stayed the same and who serve stayed the same. But how we do it has innovated entirely, and so this is a moment where. Business, owners have an opportunity not to throw out what they do and not to throat who they do it for, but to actually get creative into innovate how they do what they do and the business owners that is seized sort of succeeding the most haven't been resistant to that adjustment but have releasing this as a moment to innovate to change and to ask the right questions of innovation, right not innovate. For. The sake of throwing everything they've built a way but innovate so that they can do what they do better in a way that really meets the times and then the third thing and it goes of counter to what our knee reaction is. Right when when we feel an element of scarcity or when we feel an elementary anxiety tend to think that the way we're gonNA generate more revenue is to. Sort of do anything to anyone rights, I will sell anything to anyone who will buy for me. You know anything's possible and we have tons of data and tons of proof. That's not true that in fact, the people who stay focused stay niche at but go really deep instead of really wide, those ones actually sell the most. So that's a long way to answer the question, but the quick answer is. I think there's a ton of opportunity right now I think business owners can make it through this right now but I think we need to be really intentional about being keeping our mindset strong. Being incredibly creative, adoptive, and sort of innovative around how we do what we do and staying focused and going deep, not wide and how we serve our customers. But at when we do those things for sure I, do believe we can get through this.
Rest Trustfully in the Lord (Isaiah 40:28)
"I wanna read. A, passage of scripture that the Lord has been. Encouraging. My heart specifically over the last couple of weeks Isaiah chapter. Forty versus twenty eight through thirty one and I WANNA. Pray specifically according to Verse Thirty One and before I read it. I just have. In. My mind. Reading this passage people who are listening right now who feel tired and. Many different ways amidst this pandemic. And Life and work. And family. And Church Challenges whatever it may be just. People who feel exhausted. Here's the word of God as Forty Verse Twenty Eight have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God. The creator of the ends of the. Earth. He. Does not faint or grow weary his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint. and to him who has no might he increases strength? Even youths shall faint and be weary and young men shall fall exhausted. But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with Wings Eagles, they shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not. Faint. What a picture especially there the end of this passage from the very beginning, you see a picture of God everlasting the creator of the ends of the earth who never grows weary. He's never tired never exhausted. He is omnipotent. All powerful. And then at the end after talking about how even the youngest and healthiest faint and weary in fall exhausted. But then the picture at the end is people who mount up with wings like eagles soaring. Eagle like just get that picture in your mind. So you think that's not the way I. Feel Right now I don't feel like I'm soaring like an eagle or running and not being weary of course, mean like who runs and doesn't get weary who walks and keeps walking keeps walking how do you do that in not eventually faint fall over how do you? How do you soar like an eagle run and not be weary walk and not faint verse Thirty One listen to this word they who wait for the Lord Shall do all these things? So have renewed strength the sore and run walk they who wait for the Lord What an interesting verse. Like the key to soaring and running and walking is waiting. One commentator. Said this word basically means to rest trust fully in the Lord And I've just been soaking in those. Couple of words and a variety of ways and my own mind and heart over the last couple weeks and I want to encourage you with them owner. Pray for you according to this word God we praise you. We praise you together as the ever lasting God, you are the creator of the ends of the Earth as we look around us in the world, we see your handiwork. And we praise you for your power and your strength. You'd never grow faint or weary. Your understanding is uncertain. And The beauty of what we're reading here. We just receive the fact that you don't keep this power and strength to yourself. You give power to the faint. To the week you increase strength. So God, we pray for that I pray over all who are tired and weak and weary and exhausted in many different ways for many different reasons some. Just at the end of themselves got pray this passage over them right now that they would see you on high should have a grand glorious view of who you are and they would see that you desire to give them power that you desire to give them strength. That they can rest trust Fli in you. God I. Pray that over every single person who's listening to this right now I pray that you would help them today and tomorrow and the next day and the next day the next day every day daily to arrest trust fully and you to rest in your strength to trust in your power and to trust that you are working all things together for the good of those. Who Love you have been called according to your purpose God i. Pray that as those who are listening right now and even in my own life as we rest trustful and you as we wait for you, we pray that you would renew our strength and we prayed it help us to soar like eagles and run and not be weary and walk and not faint. We pray this according to your word in Jesus name.

My heart just leapt a little. So we must be honest with ourselves. And take a look at how we are moving through our days. These conversations that we're having around being aware. That were quote wasting time, and then beating ourselves up silently of course about. Wasting time? And then we morph that idea into. How then do we become more productive sewer optimizing our time? We're scheduling our time and then. I hear all the time that. Statement. That I'm crazy. Busy I say it to when I say I'm crazy busy. It means that I'm crazy. Busy from ten am to five PM.

This compulsive ity we have around being productive and doing more things. As a little wonky when you think about. The technology that we have is supposed to save us time. Why do we feel like we need to fill it with other things? I want a slow nope. I don't even want to slow. The role. I would like us to be aware that. This does not bring internal happiness.

This Episode Can Kill You
"Now. You know I love topic Oh, it's. You'RE GONNA. Love this. It's so good and also this is also going speaking of unresolved issues. It's GonNa tap into another thing that I didn't realize how much I. truly deeply feared. Until recently, just poisoned well I. Mean who wasn't ready to be. But in a very specific way. But. We'll get there. We'll get there. First, we're going to talk about the difference between a poison and a toxin. So I will give a shout out to my husband who deals with a poisonous and toxic materials all the time. Apparently, he gave me a lot of Info and I'll be like shutting him out every so often like space guy. See, I don't know what he does. He does space sometimes I guess, and then other times he like flows toxic chemicals over silicon wafers I have no idea. I don't know I don't I stopped. I, mean he explains it to be, and we'll. He explains it so patiently, and so like well and lovingly, and it's so nice, and then at immediately just leaves my brain because I didn't get it to begin with, so it's this. It's very kind of him, but I just don't know if I can really. Get it in the box anyway. So. Poisonous. DESCRIBES ANY SUBSTANCE MAINLY MANUFACTURED? That is harmful or deadly to living cells, even small quantities, so poisonous is like an umbrella term anything that can is harmful or deadly to living thanks. Toxic refers to poison that is produced naturally by living things. But people often use toxic, describe any. Harmful. So specifically. Toxic is a poison that is produced by a living thing. Okay, and that could be like a snake with venom. or it can be like bacteria that produces low toxic substance that can make you sick or cause you to die. However the term toxic is very common as you and I both know especially nontechnical language. My favorite is things that you can buy from instagram that tell like claim to like. Flush the toxins from your body. Turns out. We have a liver for that. It built right in. We don't have to do anything extra detox. NOPE, so there's no need to listen to an influencer on instagram with an absurdly large, but with a kid named Taylor so. Don't worry about it. You have a liver to flush out your toxins. Don't add anything else. the term toxicity refers to the safety of a specific chemical or compound. The toxicity is usually defined by something. Called the L. D. fifty or the. Lethal dose, L., D.! Is Lethal dose fifty? It's the amount of the chemical that causes fifty percent of the test population to die. ooh, yeah! We're going to talk about a couple of toxins and door poisons great. First let's talk about botulism. Please the S so botulism is a rare and potentially fatal illness caused by a toxin produced by the bacterium cluster. Idiom Botulinum. An anaerobic bacterium. The disease begins with weakness, blurred vision, feeling, tired and trouble speaking. This may then be followed by weakness of the arms, chest, muscles and legs, vomiting, swelling of the abdomen and dairy diarrhea may also occur. The disease not does not usually affect consciousness or cause a fever, so you get very like Logie, which is a term that my mom uses often, but like you've you get like really like it looks like you're kind of unconscious where you're just kind of like really logie. But you aren't ever unconscious during this, or nor do you have a fever? So that's kind of creepy mark. Botulinum toxin is also one of the most powerful known toxins about one microgram is lethal to humans when inhaled. That's insane. That's so small settled because people voluntarily will get it injected into their face exactly and we'll talk about that so. What it does is it acts by blocking nerve function which causes paralysis so advanced botulism can cause respiratory failure by paralyzing the muscles of the chest, and this can progress as you can imagine to respiratory arrest. So the bacterial spores, which closet are common bill, soil and water. They produce the botulinum toxin when exposed to low oxygen levels and certain temperatures. And foodborne botulism happens when food containing the toxin is eaten, and this was a big thing with canning for a long time. If food is improperly canned, it's a hotbed for the growth of the clause radium. Botulism.

The Importance of Routines
"This week's episode. I WanNa talk about routines especially in a time of crisis. I'm recording this. Currently at one o'clock in the morning because as I was climbing into bed Wednesday evening hit me. That was my week to record thoughtful Thursday and I hadn't done it yet in fact I'd completely forgotten about it. It's almost like the last few days fused together into a single weird dream from which I was hoping to wake up but apparently am not yet. And it's not just this. It's a lot of things that seem to have. Reorganized our list of priorities almost overnight if you told me in February that by mid-march IB waking up at five am to go stand in line at Costco for toilet paper spending time trying to convince my seventy year old parents. They really do need to stay at home and trying to put myself through a crash course in home schooling to children for two months. I would have laughed at you but this is how quickly things can change. This is how quickly things we thought were important become no longer important and things. We never considered become pressing. If there's one thing I've always had a hard time with an adult even though I have unlimited evidence of its importance. Its routines routine seem. Bolt routine uninspiring exciting. If there's one thing they don't formally teach in college I think they should. It's the need to create routines. I had a routine that was based on school. From the time I was a child until I was twenty three years old then I had a routine. It was based on a workplace with an arrival time in a departure time. When I was on twenty nine transitioned into a role where I was either traveling or working remotely and after about six months I started to realize that I no longer had reliable anchors for my schedule I found myself working at all hours of the day and night because I was in charge of all twenty four hours of my day instead of just half of it. I'd convince myself. I was working eighty plus hours a week and it felt like I had no time for anything in reality. I was working the same forty hours I always had. I was just spreading it out over eighty hours. It took some serious discipline another several months to change. But it's a good thing I did because this compartmentalization is necessary. If you want any sense of work life balance. I went from responding to emails within a few minutes of getting them. Regardless of when they came in to carving out chunks of time at the beginning and end of my work day for email. I went from never having any time to hit the gym to being able to go every day. If I wanted I went from having no sleep schedule and always feeling tired to getting seven plus hours every night and no longer needing alarm most mornings. When my son was run a year old my wife and I became acutely aware that he functioned better on a very regimented routine also and it was much easier to make this happen because we already had going routines for kids are no different than routines for adults. They're anchors the reliable. They're comforting if we allow them to be. Children will fight them because they aren't self-imposed and no inherently likes being told what to do but the children who have really strong routines put in place by parents who have no problem saying no outside forces attempting to break those routines are the ones who thrive. So what does it have to leadership? Normally people are expected to create their own routines role adults here and hopefully your employees have daily routines that allow them to reliably get their work done but over the last few weeks. Many of those routines have been thrown out the window. Many employs across the world have had to go through crash courses in remote work. Ultimately this land up being a good thing for how he view remote work in its benefits but in the interim there will be growing pains. There'll be employees who convince themselves. They went from working forty hours a week to working eighty hours a week because there's no longer a and on arrival time and other people relying on their presence so if your leader people one of your responsibilities to your employees just became helping them navigate this transition and it'll be a very finely choreographed dance because your employees personalized that have been up ended as well. They likely have children at home all day. Now parents are trying to convince the stay home and five. Am COSTCO RUNS FOR TOILET? Paper and all of these things are now part of their lives along with trying to remain productive as a leader. You can't just pretend all these things don't exist and try to recreate office life or store for your employees without the existence of an officer restore what you can do however is give the makers start by creating a way to communicate as a team if you haven't already that's compartmentalize from their personal lives. Apps like slacker. Great for this because you WanNa make sure they can turn it off when they wanna be done with work and simple group text. Messages are much harder to make this happen with next. Come an agreement on regular intervals for calls with each of your direct reports. Something that works on their schedule but something that is set like any other workday meeting discontent being a ten minute call just to make sure each of your peoples in a good place emotionally and doesn't need extra support from you or could be a time to its current projects as many places haven't stopped working just because they've stopped going to a physical building. Lastly don't under any circumstances stop you're employed development routines. Many leaders rely on physically seeing their employees and being able to watch their performance in action as a jumping off point for career conversations. They have if you're now working remotely. This is going to be much more difficult so make sure that if your routine was a weekly check in with employees to discuss career aspirations performance goals etc. That routine stays the same. You might have to come up with different things to talk about. But the existence of these meetings becomes another anchor for your employees. The bottom line is you need to have empathy for what each person is going through right now while also understanding that. This empathy doesn't mean allowing employees to forge their own path and create their own work environment alone. The leaders do this effectively will be the ones with teams whose productivity and performance doesn't drop simply. Because they're not stuck at home.
Coronavirus For Kids, And The Science Of Soap
"You may have been hearing lately about something called Corona virus. Or maybe you've been hearing about Kovic. Nineteen many of you have been affected more than just by hearing about this new illness. In some regions and countries. Lots of things have changed. Big events like football or soccer matches concerts and community events have been postponed mosque. Church and synagogue services have been cancelled and schools and places where adults work have been closed. It can be confusing or worrying when normal life changes. If you are feeling a little concerned you should ask the adults in your life to help explain things but you should also that things are probably feeling confusing. And maybe a little overwhelming to your adults to most of us haven't been through something quite like this before and going to take all of us being calm and following the best advice of health professionals and our local leaders to get through this together today. We're going to answer questions. You've been sending us about corona virus in an effort to make sure you are informed and prepared not scared. We're putting this episode out. On Friday March Thirteenth Twenty twenty. The global situation is changing very quickly. But the information. We're going to give you today pretty relevant. Whether you're listening the day we put this out or maybe a week or two later or perhaps even later and as things continue to change you can continue to send us questions. You think we should answer. Let's start with corona virus. What it is and what Kovic nineteen means we asked Critique polly to help answer your questions about this virus critique it is an infectious disease doctor. Infectious diseases are illnesses. That are caused by a microorganism. Getting into your body micro means small so something really small. You can't see it. Some infectious diseases are passed from one. Human to another by insects. Like mosquito others are passed from person to person in other ways like by one person. Coughing or sneezing and another person breathing in those cough droplets. In the Air Dr Critic Acapella works on Infectious Diseases and she's actually one of the leaders of the Infectious Disease Society of America so she thinks about contagious illnesses a lot and she's been helping a lot of politicians health officials and others think about this new illness. That people are so worried about so she was really glad to get a chance to talk directly to you to kids about the questions. You have islanders. Henry I'm eight years old. I live in Oxford. Ohio and my question is why did the current ivars happen? Hi My name is Isla. I live in spokane Washington. I'm eleven years old in my question is what do scientists know about the corona virus? Hi I'm Evelyn. I'm seven years. Old From Kirkland Washington. And I'd like to ask what is the corona virus. What exactly is a corona virus? We keep hearing this word corona virus. What is that? Karma bowl is on part about large family of germs called viruses chronic viruses infect animals and some infect people so the one that is causing the big outbreak right now is one that index people and sometimes when this happens it can cause infections of our lungs also cause fevers coughing and shortness of breath. Hi My name is Nathan. I am five years old. I live in Washington and lie. Question is why of a different take of other current viruses. That kids might be familiar with if if we've gotten a cold. Is that a corona virus. Yes quarterback most commonly called what we think of as causing the common cold so people have had probably a corona virus already in their lives. If they've had the sniffles coffin. It's not allergies. If they've had a cold viral illness they may already have had a corona virus. So why are we concerned about Cova? Nineteen the disease that's caused by this new corona virus. Hello my name is Waitin' Four and a half years old eleven in Pennsylvania. My question is was the coon of why was bad. Hi My name is advocates are the venture cargo. I am five years old Miami Kelly. I'm an elephant Chicago. How did the corona virus become so powerful so toby nineteen is what we call a novel coronavirus and what the word novel means is that it's new and that people have not seen it before and that's why it's called? Colgate nineteen the coast and for Corona. The D. I. Vin is Virus Disease In nineteen. Because it first appeared in people in two thousand nineteen and because it's new and people haven't seen it before it's making people very sick. Is that because because people haven't seen it before none of us have developed any immunity to it. So we're more likely to get it if we come in contact with it because our body has no built up way to try to prevent us from getting it. Because everybody's never seen it before. Yes that's one reason so the bodies have never seen it before We don't have any way for our body to recognize and develop a immune response to it so none we can get very sick and that is one of the reasons we are so concerned about it because we have seen that some people Who can get this disease? Get very sick. You said that that lack of any immune response is one reason. Are there other reasons why humans are likely to get this one or why there's concern about humans getting it? Well one of the reasons we get concerned about humans getting it's not. We've seen that people who are older when they got it tend to get more sick and that is one of the reasons we are so worried about it. My name is Tara and I'm turning eleven and I live in New York City and my question is how do viruses mutate? Hi My name is Millie and eleven New Jersey and I was six years old and my question is. How did the current virus start? Where did this disease come from? We aren't exactly sure where the disease has come from. Belli's one thing. We are still working to understand but we do know that there are lots of viruses in the world and based on our best guess right now where other chronic illnesses come from we right now think that it may have come from bats and there may have been some sort of intermediate host and from there came to humans however that has not been confirmed yet and they are still working to identify where it came from so it may have come from an animal animal's could have had this before humans ever got it and somehow transferred from animals into the first humans who got it absolutely correct. How does this virus spread in people? Virus spreads mainly from people either sneezing or coughing by their droplets. So that is why it is important if you sneeze or cau- to cover your mouth so you can't spread it to other people if you cover your mouth with your hand while you cough and then you put your hand down on your desk or your table or hold hands with your friend. Can you transmit the virus that way? Well sort of so if your hand has a virus on it and then you touch your hand and then your hand to get scars on it and your friend than touches the mouth or the nose order is than they can give themselves the virus if they don't wash clean their hands before they touch their mouth their nose or there is so it's very important to wash your hands before touching your face and critique. Oh we mentioned a minute ago. That people who've had a cold have had a corona virus. What are the symptoms of this particular corona virus covert nineteen so the most common symptoms of this corona virus? Or going to be things that make you not feel very good so a fever a cough and feeling tired and having maybe some muscle aches. Those are the most common initial symptoms.

"I could not get off social networking because I was reading all the stories and feeling very validated and feeling very a little more at peace. Okay so we do that. Every day we look to social networking to read something to make us feel better right now in the height of craziness you're not gonNA find a lot there so maybe don't go searching their or don't be surprised when you're seeing news stories like new cases new this new this. That's how it's going to be here for a little bit so instead of Oh no. I can't believe this is happening. Of course that's what you're going to hear right now. They told us. That's what you're going to hear. This isn't a surprise there. Like get this. It's going you're going to hear about it every day for the next couple of weeks or next couple of months and allow yourself to be somewhat prepared for that or don't go looking for something different and don't be surprised when you hear it because you know you're going to hear that's the thing is. I already said I can't stand it when people say be careful and be prepared and I just said it. What I mean about prepare does not do anything. Just when you start to feel shocked. Say Oh I shouldn't feel shocked. Sure that's exactly what I knew I was going to find. And then maybe start watching a really good series on. Maybe this is the opportunity to find a new podcast. Yesterday I downloaded a bunch of new podcasts. That have nothing to do with the news. They were like movie podcasts. And some a few. Hey how's podcasts? Listen Hey House. In for like five years and just things that are really nourishing and or funny or interesting. We just watched a new girl. Yes which That was a really funny new girl. I know so. Plenty. It's just. They were aquarium rack. Signed something to distract you with laughter to balance out the seriousness of what is is showing up. And you know todd. Just use the word distract which is fine but I would say. It's not really a distraction it's an enhancement to your life like you deserve to have that as much as the news. We were so self flagellating like I'm GonNa make myself a worse and worse and it's like you can watch a new girl and you didn't waste time. It's not a guilty pleasure. You can watch the bachelor tonight. You'll have to feel bad for real. You know like you can enjoy your life because you know what it's your life that's right or you could even put on the show notes There's a gratitude. Six minute video that we showed at one of the conferences years ago and I showed it at a meeting that I began last week six minutes. And it's just a reminder of what to be grateful for you can click on if you go to show notes. There'll be a youtube clip of this guy. Who does a six minute piece on gratitude with beautiful imagery Louis Louis? I don't remember something I we actually played it at our conference a few years ago. Yeah Not Louie Anderson. Not Louie Anderson the Schwartzberg Schwartzberg. I think his name is. He's an artist The last thing is that one of my favorite things. That Bernanke Brown was able to articulate in. Her research is how we dress for her tragedy. How we think that if we think about it enough and do enough and talk about it enough. That will somehow dress rehearsing all. The bad things that can go wrong will make us feel better or that will bypass our vulnerability or that. We won't be surprised or disappointed or feel pain and none of that works. Know what I mean. Is that dress? Rehearsing tragedy is not helpful. So let yourself off the hook and because something were to happen it has nothing to do with. What's going on in the world right now? Anything IN LIFE. You stub your toe. You're still gonNA feel that pain even if you've been practicing stubbing your toe for two weeks you it. Only you can only feel things in present time so no need to rehearse. Get the thing by the things you want to buy. Meaning if you feel like you need to stock your house just in case because people from all over the country you're listening to US including people in Washington who really do have some other schools are closed off. This is a real thing but do what you have to do. And then watch a funny movie and listen to the birds and remember that we're all in this together and.

"I was in jail. Yes and like if for whatever reason my mom picked me up for a dentist appointment I got to go to McDonalds or something. This is what people do and it was such A. It's such a weird and I miss that because we have that every we have that as adults we can go do what we want for the most part whenever we want and yet. We live on autopilot. And we're not doing it so when I used to work in Chicago. It was the exact same thing. So I worked at Children's memorial and who was in Lincoln Park so I had to like drive down lakeshore drive and I would to work and all these people be jogging or in the water and I'd be like why are they free. Why why do they get to do that? And I work like a seven to five job you know and then I drive home and be like how do those people have energy to go so here? We are now some of US someone who are still working the seven to seven job or whatever not everybody is in the same boat here but for those of you who have a little more freedom meaning your part time or you can choose where to take your kids during the day or you do have days off. Don't be on autopilot and be like I'm going to be busy and be on my computer and my phone like go get out of jail man go-getter giving you get out of jail free card right now it's monopoly here. You go exactly like go. Do something that you wouldn't normally or go dry. This is creepy as he drives by a school. And be like I'm not in there. Yeah and then that we suckers suckers todd drives Schuyler to school. Sometimes they drive by all the kids getting on the bus then we say sucker and even for when she has to take the bus but anyway. I think that just having that realization that we have more choice than we think our brain tells us to be especially at a time like this when so much is going on to be hyper alert and to constantly doing something and to be busy. Because that's how he stay safe and there's absolutely nothing true about that right. That over. Productivity is a numbing out behavior. You're trying not to feel all the feelings of your life and so you stay constantly chronically busy so you don't have to sit in what is real and once you sit in what. Israel and you feel all the feelings of your life you realize they come and go and that within those feelings. There's some good ones. And there's some recognizing and some hearing the birds and some realizing that if I cancel this plan Life won't end and you know as Rachel Simmons said at our conference. Sometimes you have to do something you have to stretch outside your comfort. And she was talking about goal setting but this is true with even being less productive stretch outside of that comfort and realize and this is her language. That you won't die that you did it and that you're okay and that will and our brain thinks we're going to die if we don't get that promotion if your kid doesn't get an a if we like. It's their brain is lying to and you can't shut it out. You can't say oh I'm going to tell my brain to stop lying to me your brain's GonNa keep lying trying to keep you. It's trying to help you survive. It's it's you know kind of what you talked about in the beginning of the show is that there's evolutionary thing. Where when the bears and the Tigers were chasing US adrenaline would have would would show up so that we could get away fight or or flight or fear and now we because we don't have these tigers chasing after us we think if our kid doesn't get an a. then we're going to die and we can also let ourselves off the hook in that. The reason that these evolutionary things have continued is because the people who heard the bear or the tiger coming. And we're kind of anxious and scared and ran. We are there and they're our ancestors because the ones who just hung out and said. I'm not gonNA whatever they got eaten so we have the DNA of the people who ran so that's perpetuated but now because we've evolved. We have to remember that. We don't need to do what they did. In every situation we that's called negativity bias by the way like where our brain really notices all the bad things that are happening because it has to do to survive has to pick up on threats so it's always scanning the environmental threats so how do we counteract that you don't get rid of it but how do you counteract that. Mindfulness presence practice stretch. You know hurts. Birds like there's so many more gentle reminders that we can do on a day to day moment to moment basis to say. Oh that's my brain line to me like we have that pre prefrontal cortex that can override the reptilian brain but the reptilian brain sometimes overrides the prefrontal CORTEX. Thank you brain. I need about like what's less than one eighth. Like one ninth. Thank you I was GonNa say to sixteen so that's the same thing. Yeah that's okay. I'm not very good at fractions. No kidding so I can say I think one eight point one to five. Okay so I need about one eighth of that information. Okay and the rest of it. You can just tell. And that's my five to seven minutes Iraq the daily Skim and Wall Street Journal thing. I was thinking one thing that can be helpful with your kids like if you do the like I'm tired. Are you tired? And kind of lay down and relate to each other is maybe make a plan together. Say what can we do when we're feeling scared? And tired and this can be with teenagers of course but you might. WanNa Change your tune where it doesn't sound like you're trying to do an activity but with little kids you can say what let's make a list. Let's do five minutes of tickling to remember to laugh. Let's look for the birds. Let's when we go out to walk so you create something for your kids. So they are practicing those aspects of their brain. But you are too. It's not just for them. Don't be in one hundred percent teacher mode. Don't be in lecture. Most student with your kid be a student with them and then when they point things out because your kids are going to have ideas like color. Pictures you know run around in circles. Be You know. Do Crazy faces. You know everything the kids to the because that's how they relieve okay so todd. Our neighbors have a dog and todd likes to take the dog for a walk and I went with them yesterday. And it's really it's nice because then you meet all the dog people but anyway what we noticed that Kona does like all animals do is Kona will like see another dog and they'll kind of like play and then she'll get past that dog and then just shake shake shake shake shake and then like each and move on so what's GonNa Doing. She is having an experience and all this energy gets brought up and then she walks on and releases. The energy shake shake. Shake shake shake. You know how dogs do that. They shake in their hair goes everywhere. That's energy released for them and Kona had yesterday during the walk about six different experiences and after every single one she shook correct and that is the one thing that US humans especially US. Men are not good at doing. I'm sure I'm sure women are not that good at it. Either but men especially are not good at emotion and getting rid of it and letting it come through you right. We tend to bottle everything up and I'm sure women do too but I was fascinated by watching. Kona shake after every single experience that she had and you know. Eat Todd Todd. Even looking for that was because we ECKERD tolley talks about that in the power of now or maybe a new earth or maybe in both he talks about how he was talking about a duck and how ducks fight when they swimming around each other. And they're arguing over food and quack quack quack and then when they swim away from each other they flat flat flap their wings and get rid of the energy and move on and as ECKERD says they don't then go to another pond and say you're not GonNa believe this -ducted did to me. You know you know yesterday. They're done with it. They're done with it and so it's the same thing for us regardless of what's going on in the world like win we come home from school. We have to help our for our children. How can they shake that off? And if your children walk in and you're already like what's next or did you study for this or did you sign up for this. They don't get any opportunity to shake that off and so not only. Do we need to practice this? But we need to talk about it and allow them to come up with ways. Because you know this is how we stay clear minded enough to keep our brains open to doing what's wise and she's not living in fear so you told the duck story. I actually have eker pulled up when he talks about the two monks carrying girl story which is about letting things go a little different but see okay with me out saying that the story the two monks in the one month picks up the girl on the road. Yes that's the story of two months on pilgrimage. And they come across in a village they come across a young seventeen year old girl with long Kimono. Trying to cross a very muddy roads but she's not daring to step into the mud so one monk picks up carries her across the road through the march puts down and so the monks walk on in silence. Another four or five hours just practicing noble silence and then after four or five hours getting close to their destination bond. Monk says to the monk who had picked up the go. Oh you know you shouldn't have done that because we monks not supposed even to touch women so you really shouldn't have picked up that girl. You're not supposed to do that. And the other amongst all I'll use tailed carrying that Gal. I put her down hours ago so the was still carrying the girl the event in his head. Four hours four hours. He was walking with this burden. That shows the the the reluctance of the human mind to let go of the past. So how many of US reading this chapter here we go. Yeah Miss Those Eckhart Oprah conversations you can go back and listen to them anytime you want her super soul Podcast So do you have anything else you want to think so. I think that what I want to do is that I want to tell everybody one thing that was said to me. That was super helpful where I was like. Oh of course is don't be okay. How do I want to say this? If you're looking at social networking or watching the news. Do your best to not be surprised by more scary stories. Sometimes one thing that I were talking about the other day is that part of the reason that we would go on social networking after the election. Was We were constantly looking for good news. We were like you kinda wanted to see a story like this person who did. The bad thing is now being taken down kind of like the Harvey Weinstein thing hit..

"The corona virus. Can you all say licking subway poles because nothing? Maybe don't do that. I WanNa stay somewhere between those extremes DOJ rick leach but don't lick the subway poll. Well that's the thing is I read this great article because I've been telling my girls wash your hands. Basically what I did is. I took them out to breakfast this weekend. Because I know that our kids are on social networking. So they're reading all this stuff and reading all the craziness and teenagers are running with these crazy ideas because remember teenagers. Have a greater sense of immortality so they really are worried about Desa. -sarily them getting sick. They like the drama of it Whereas adults we see the bigger picture that people can get hurt. And you know it's Kinda like that's why. Teenagers are more risk-takers because they don't think they're going to get hurt. They just think but they don't but they like the idea of everything's falling apart. What are we gonNA do so I talked to my girls and basically what I said is you are. Your risk of anything is very low. But you do have an obligation to take care of your immune system and wash your hands and to not lick subway poles and to sneeze into your sleeve if you're going to sneeze and to stay home stay home if you're not feeling good and take care of yourself and get some good sleep because you. This is a herd immunity thing. You need to stay well so people who are more at risk stay. Well yeah like you're part of the bigger picture so in a way we can teach our children. You don't have to freak out but you do need to stay healthy for the sake of other people and one of the things that I read the other day that I thought was really helpful is it was like a you know an infectious disease specialist talking about kind of telling everyone like John. Oliver called down everybody at the same time. We're learning really good tools. That could eradicate the flu for this season. Interesting like if people are washing their hands and doing these things the flu might go away so fascinating so something good potentially could come out of. Of course. That's everything in life light and dark when dark comes in. It's initially scary dark night of the soul right. I you got to confront the fact. I wasn't dealing with this two weeks ago and now I am and there's a grieving process of I want it to be at the way. It was two weeks ago. You know that's what grief is is. I don't want to be this way. Okay we accept it. It is this way what do I do? We learn a new set of tools. Washing our hands being thoughtful staying in separating not handshaking bumping elbows not canceling south by southwest. Whatever it may be which all these are temporary but we learn how to do that and then within all of this dark some light emerges and you know I remember. We did a podcast. After the election in two thousand sixteen and we called it the grass grows through and it was the same thing it was like right after the election. I was very devastated. I know a lot of you were and I couldn't quite see any light. I was just scared and I didn't know what that was going to mean or what things we're gonNA look like and I'll be honest with you. It's been quite a journey but it's been quite a journey looking back meaning on a day-to-day basis. We were able to manage right. Relatively speaking Some days were easier than others. I still had to go to therapy. But you know what I mean. But the grass grows through means. It's like the birds coming back. The grass will always come through the cracks. There will be light We find we figure out like my my friend Ria. Who's been on this show She rea- Frei Frei who wrote Not Her daughter and she has a new book coming out By the way. And we're going to have her back on the show but she lives in. Nashville and win those tornadoes hit. I texted her that next morning and she had been in. The basement with her daughter was pretty significant storm. Obviously as we know and she said it was scary and horrible but then she had already seen the community starting to support each other and that people were starting to do gofundme for some of their favorite little restaurants and that kind of thing and I guess my point is is that this is life. This isn't like nobody told us we were going to be born. And then everything was going to go smooth so two things one is that grassroots podcast number. Three forty one actually want to listen to that. But that's there and you know if the corona virus wasn't here there'd be a whole other list of things that we would be worried about and scared and it's funny like all those really scary things that we were worried about two months ago and we're not thinking about them yet. Life goes on. There's still happening so it's just yet another example of how you know. I. I don't watch the news. I find it curious of people that have the news on all day. My Dad's one of those people because no you know he calls. How are the girls would are? They watched like you know. They're as questions. Of course he's going to be stressed. He's watching CNN and Fox and MSNBC. So I guess you know. I don't ever like telling anybody to do anything but I guess just question your habits of what you're putting into your brain well in like a what. I usually do at times like these and I do it on and off and so it's not something you have to be like. I'm committed to this to the rest of my life. I still have facebook and instagram on my phone. But I removed twitter and the news APP up renting it. Bring it back at some point but it wasn't helpful to meaning that question like what's what's serving me and what's not right and twitter is fun for me when the Academy Awards are going on right and twitter's Fund like the Bachelor is on tonight and tomorrow night. I actually have presentation. You're gonNA come with me right Tonight so I have to watch the bachelor when I get home because it's really important to figure out what Peter is going to do. Yes he's feeling connected to those ladies. Those two ladies and there's a love with two women he doesn't know what he's going to choose and no one's ever felt that you know. What a shock. What a shock. But anyway like I liked to. You know watch twitter when the badgers on or whatever because I like to watch people's reactions but then there's times like this that it's not helpful at all because I know where to go to get information to the CDC website and the World Health Organization. And I'm following what they're telling me to do and that's all I need and then the rest of the time I'm just GonNa Kinda hang with the birds you know because there. I I think that once again. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with nature. Happened to be sixty six in warm yesterday. Everybody's outside You know in Chicago wintertime. I kinda like say goodbye to my neighbors in November. I'll see in March and now everybody's out 'cause it's sunny and warm and that is what feeds the soul. The news I feel like takes away from our soul of course it. That's the intention because again. Let's get into neurobiology again. What does our brain pay attention to fear and sex okay? So what are the two things that Tom and I were just talking about? Fear which is everything that's going on in the news and the Bachelor and that's sex right. That's why people watch because of what's going on between two human beings so it's like these are the things that get people's attention and the news meads clicks and they need headlines and they need people to watch their show and they need to have and so they when you think to yourself but it's the news. They should be just giving us what we need. No that's in anybody. Our Age knows this but anybody. Who's like maybe new to this news world you know? I don't know who that would be. But they're not giving us what we need. They're giving us things so we come back out of fear and so I recommend Being thoughtful and picking up some new good habits that are possibly going to help us with every aspect of our lives. Because how interesting if like the flu goes away right how interesting and because whatever hundreds of thousands of people die of the flu every year in this country add. How many people died of the corona virus this year? But if you look at the net loss this you know I'm just making stuff up. What do I know but this potentially could kill? We could lose less people long run because people are having to wash their hands in a way they never did. Hey so we could actually be helping be helping with this fear that we're seeing on TV. Every day I know so it's interesting and all it's all how you look at it is and it's like it's what can I do and then let go and so here's the other part. I WanNa make sure we talk about so I started by saying it's okay. If you're tired right and when you recognize in have that surrendering to I'm tired. And maybe you know as for todd and I we tend to laugh at it but as a relief of it give your that kind of understanding and curiosity and maybe lay down next to your kid and say I'm tired. Are you not at nine o'clock at night? Now when you're trying to get them to go to bed I'm talking like are you just wiped and see what kind of conversation comes up because it's probably pretty rare where parents to try to connect with their kids. Based upon their own vulnerabilities heat and expression of tiredness and the tired is not. I'm tired kid. You need to help me or make me feel better at the tired is. Can you relate your child's world then because they may not be worried about the same things you are or they might be which is unfortunate because their kids and I hate that. They have to worry about adult things but giving them that language of like. This is tiring sometimes and in the midst of that tired. We don't shut down. We may need to sometimes in grieve and cry and go to sleep in or be sick or whatever it may be but we keep going so when you're saying I'm tired. I think you're talking about both. Are you talking about physical exhausted? I'm just tired of hearing. About all this fair interconnective. You can't be emotionally tired without having a physical component and if you're physically tired you're going to have the emotional. It's all the same but I think I'm just saying overall instead of stressed or afraid. What if you're just tired and I think that because I'm feeling that way I win? I'm feeling that way. I look at my children with such compassion. Because I know if I'm feeling this way in their worlds they have less choice right. See I have choice? Relatively speaking you know I have a lot of responsibility but I can choose to go get a salad at lunch or two. I have more than Oh can. You may remember looking out windows when you're in school and seeing people walk around and like wow. They're free like in school. I thought.

"Day I needed. Trimmer whiskers need to review the crate. Not like in the air. It's not told you that this is funny to you and I because we love this movie. Can you say what this movie is? So this is best in show. Which is Christopher guests? It was his second movie. That's basically the same crew of people same actors and actresses and he basically writes like a kind of script. Yeah how things should go curb your enthusiasm eggs like this happened before Kerr right. He was the first one and then they just improvise the whole thing and I know that's Parker Posey. I don't know who the actor is all. But he's funny but they're like really wealthy people with a really fancy dog a drink and they're starving in their starbucks just amid a wider. Reiner and their dog is like fine. Yeah and they are so highly anxious and they're so mean to each other and mean to everybody else and they the busy bee thing. Even our girls know that now toy. Don't you worry than these are gonNA cut? That's where we're at. It's so funny because the dog does get panicked because of the energy. Fine right but you could. But it's like I feel like in this metaphor. The dog is children correct. Okay yes so the dog's fine if we could just chill out right but these people are going crazy in the same way that many of us are probably going crazy about the virus and making our kids is the word. You don't have to pretend I'm just sick of hearing that word. I'm protesting that word Chicago Kovin. Nineteen that's it's it's new word we're GONNA call bunch of things the virus that sounds even more daunting and I think the point is is that like you've got to balance you've you've got to balance You you can find this place in the middle where you can prepare like you can. There are some things that the CDC has said. Hey you may want to do this. You might want to consider making sure you have some childcare you want. You might want to see if you can work from home like there's parts of this that are not under our control and so mine. My thoughts are less about everybody's at risk everybody run away and more about. How do we just make sure that we can chill? Because we're prepared. I have a piece from John Oliver. Did you watch your John? Oliver Corona virus. Okay so this is the very end and I hope this is the right part wondering how Shuji and the answer is probably a bit a bit. I don't want to be a long list tape but I also don't want to minimize what we could be facing. It's really about trying to strike a sensible balance. Basically if you're drinking bleach to protect yourself right now you should probably come down so earlier. The episode somebody's like if I drink bleach. Immune from.
"feeling tired" Discussed on Zen Parenting Radio
"We have a theme song and this is at. Todd's nothing says pop culture and more than this song all right okay. It's okay to be tired so I was sitting. I finished my meditation upstairs and I wrote this down. Do you want to hear what I wrote down? I wrote down. It's okay to be tired to not hold up the world to miss things to let go of things to not read the book next to your bed to cancel the plan to stare out the window and listen to the bird because the bird is okay and I know that I am too. How about that? Yeah you really little poet a Monday morning. And here's the funny thing is. I'm not reading this for anybody to say. Wow that's really good because it's not about how I was conscious consciousness so this is not like anything. I'm putting in a book or anything. It's just that I think I kind of laughed after I wrote it because the thing that's happening right now in the world the happens over and over and over again. It's not new. Is that we say things to each other. Like be prepared and be careful right right like what can I do with that information to laugh because I know no I don't need to lap? There is so much serious right now in the world and so many things that people are telling us to be afraid of that. I'm tired I'm done with people telling ME TO BE AFRAID TIRED. I am and here's what is the truth. You can be thoughtful and somewhat prepared in like the ways that you're being asked to be prepared. And then not be chronically hyper vigilant because you know what hyper-vigilance creates anxiety and you know what fear creates disruption anxiety. Were you WanNa what like stress? creates anxiety so anxiety. Let me get neurobiological with you. It literally takes your brain and squeezes it like a vice and shuts it down so you can't see any out. It's like living in a dark little closet because what's really happening is your mic delegates stimulated right and so it's going off like crazy which means all your cortisol is shooting through your body and an everything gets into this mode of. I need to either fight or run or freeze and while those things are amazing when you are in literally the throes of a crisis like the Tigers is running after you or you know there is a tornado and you need to get downstairs right away. You know things like that. I'm so grateful for that. That cortisol in that focused that hyper focus. But when we're being told to be like that twenty four seven not only. Are we making ourselves physically sick? But our brain has no capacity to notice. What's working and I'm not trying to get cheesy about just notice what's world is even though yes. That's not what I'm even trying to say. I'm trying to say we need right now. In our lives as parents as workers as as consumers as people who live in this world we need our entire brain capacity to function to function well to function well and to be creative and to tap into our tools and our resources like after and connection. Especially to time that everybody's telling us stay away from each other like I get it but we also have to figure out ways to not stay away from each other if that be through facetime more through phone calls or you know sitting at a distance and I. I just think that some of the things that were being asked to do some of fear mongering is definitely not keeping US healthier. It's making us worse. I feel like we have a need to explain Provi- all I wonder if we can get through this whole podcast without saying this. C The C word the virus. I don't know if we can't but we're GONNA call this this podcast. I'm already getting US ready. This podcast is not about the corona virus right even though it is a piece of it. It's what we're using to. We're using that to help us understand ourselves and each other better correct because there's somebody that's probably listening right now. It's two thousand twenty. A lot of people go back in the archives. You know somebody in two thousand twenty two is going to say. What are they talking about? I get this is what they're talking about. And my guess is the person listening in two thousand twenty. Two is going to barely remember this. It's GonNa be a blip on the radio exactly and that doesn't mean you're still work with us. People like kind of you know. Ride this ride with us. It doesn't mean that there aren't people who are struggling with this or who are sick or who have fragile immune systems or you know. My mom lives in assisted living community. Like I know that can be uncomfortable and scary and your dad is older and living in a senior community like this is not something where we're trying to make light or say it's not a thing but I hate to break it to you guys. But every day we live on this earth there's a thing and anything many things on a daily basis like some e. Todd said something the other day our yesterday about. He's talking about our girls. We're trying to figure out some things in the summer. And he said something like you know we could drive there and then put our girls on a plane to go to our cousin's his brother's house and then maybe we could drive home and there's this thing that comes up in me where I'm like. Oh my God. Put the girls on a plane. I don't know if that's safe. We WON'T BE WITH THEM. And by the way my girls are sixteen fifteen and twelve. So they're older and I get all this fear and then I'm like Oh my God. I put them in cars every day every time we go on the highway. I just drove with Cameron yesterday. It was interesting. Yes I know. I have a fifteen year old. Who is driver's permit? She's actually doing a lot better but yeah we put every single day we put ourselves and our family members at risk when we get behind the wheel of a car and and we can look at that another way has tons right but we can also say we live our lives and we move forward and part of that is being in a car and part of that is getting on a plane and you can decide whether or not you WanNa get on a plane right now but everything. I've been reading. Is that as long as you're going to a place? That's you know not Italy or not you know South Korea. It's okay And you get to choose for yourself I but my point is is that we get something happens and we're like now. The now bad things can happen and the truth about life is that that uncertainty is always present. And that's what gets me up in the morning and says wow another day like in a good way like you know one of my things that I've been saying in the morning if people who are at my pre conference workshop for the at the parenting conference a few weeks ago one of the things I said I've been saying lately to myself as telling myself good morning and I love you which is a whole process and if you want to read more about it or you could just say that well. When you're you're right todd good point but what I mean is the whole lead up their big Shana. Shapiro just wrote a book called. Good Morning I love you. And and even though she called it that this is a something that a lot of people who study self compassion and any kind of meditation. Talk about need to talk. Kindly to yourself right. It's not like that's new but I've been getting up and saying that and saying good things are going to happen today. And here's the thing like there's part of me the resistance part because whenever we do that we have resistance. That is wants to be like. How do you know bad things could happen? But we'll of course but even when something negative happens there's usually something good that happens if it'd be somebody helps you or you get new wisdom or insight or love or you realize you have a strength. You didn't have. My point is not just saying this now because of the virus or because of a possible recession or because of the election or because of climate change not saying it to ward off something. That's only happening now even when we think nothing's going on things are going on sure if it'd be across the country across the world or next door life is life so I was in Texas for conventional last week and I was very busy and I. I kind of decided to but didn't need to really decide to kind of bury my head in the sand regarding the coverage of the virus. GonNa say it anymore. I'm just so sick of hearing. Actually drink a corona last week in a Florida. The reason I thought it was funny like yeah. Let's let's clipping afraid of this. And let's have a corona right but I would. I have my head buried in the sand regarding the coverage in I usually do. Here's my news consumption habits. I wake up in the morning. I check my daily Skim Email and my Wall Street Journal. Email probably spend somewhere between five and seven minutes on it and that's about it like that is my news consumption of the day. Great and Because of this C- virus it. Everybody's energy level is so high and mine isn't I? I'm actually really calm about this. Maybe it's because I'm able bodied forty seven year old man and there's always something to be worried about and I don't know I'm just I guess I've just chosen not to subscribe to the anxiety. I would be lying if I didn't say I didn't have moments of it in a small level. But well how can you? Here's the thing is the denial. It's not even about the. It's not even about the thing that worried about. It's the energy that's being created because of the thing and I'm trying to think of what role am I going to play in that craziness and what I'm trying to say is it's not about the thing? See Todd and I. We're talking about just the other day being busy and we were talking about that. Business is not really because of external things. It's an internal sets meaning. I can leading up to the conference. Be Super busy in a literal way like meetings and writing and preparedness and just a sense of how much todd and I have to do and then the conference ends and I can feel the same kind of busy the next day because I can think. Okay now I need to focus on this and this and this and this so it's not about externally what's happening. It's about how we're processing through our body and what I have found for me and I definitely know for todd is. It's a practice of really recognizing. Is this true? Do I really have to do this today? How much pressure am I putting myself that I don't need to is? Does this really need to be done right now? Or can I go for a walk? I guess the question is is. You gotta get off autopilot. You you have to recognize how stressed in my about this. And he's this the truth and even if it's partially the truth can I do anything about it right this second or could I actually go for a walk and enjoy the reason I wrote this morning? The birds outside. Is there something that I love about? Meditating and I get to this place about three or four minutes in where my thoughts are calmed down a little more kind of like the sand or the show Globe and the snow is kind of calmed down and then I can hear what's happening outside and I realize that there's this whole world going on outside of this nature world without me. It doesn't need me any doesn't think abou the news doesn't worry about things it just continues on. And when I in that point of my meditation feel connected to that like I think I wrote something like the bird is okay and so am I. I'm like I'm just GonNa be like that bird. Yeah it's weird that you bring up the birds because in the winter. They're not chirpin because they're doing their thing hibernate and and they're rated with the bear there in the caves and the cave but there's a moment and spring when you're like. Oh yeah that's right the birds and for some reason. I'm always like it's going to be okay. Birds are not worried about these things and like Your Business Metaphor or example for me. It's something I'm addicted to productivity business like they're all intertwined for me and to your point like I feel like There's a documentary called the race to nowhere that we've screened. That's awesome about how we're teaching our kids to continue to excel. So they get into college they get a job. And it's this and I feel like I am a participant in that race to know where when I am over the top busy productive focused on this or that and even if it's focused on good stuff like I need to go connect with my child like I'm desperate to connect with my child like as that energy if I bring that energy to a hope for connection. It's probably not going to go very well. You know who else is a little Anxiety provoking sweetie nurse. She's freaking. We'll get the busy busy busy busy.

"They we used Debbie rebours book or they know Debbie Rowe Booker. I don't know if we introduce it to them or they knew it already but Debbie Reeburg was a speaker at our conference and they got to have like their own time with her as a micro community. Because they're part of teams end so they got to ask her questions and be with her. So there's more to this than meets the eye. I think todd and I are always struggling about how to explain to people this community because if you go to our conference you know that there's like a certain kind of warmth and connection and communication. That happens that's kind of rare and you're like oh I only get that once a year. Well join teams. You can do it twice a month and you could be with or kind of an everyday thing where you can go on the facebook page and you can have a community of people who are similar to you who you know who are working on the same things who can support you in her non-judgmental so it's available to you so. I get so many emails of people saying I need support. I need help and I'm like here here. You go yeah take it. Take it. Take the support. We have a new teams end member Sarah from Honolulu.

How to Find Peace in the Dark Moments of Life - Part 1
"Wendy leads is a psychotherapist and a cancer survivor. She knows what it's like to facing Ziobro and trauma and her bio notes that she's currently working on a book to share her experiences and expertise with this article. I'm probably going to interject a little bit more than I usually do. Because some of the things that she offers I don't hundred percent agree with so I'm going to give you my special. It'll take on them. Ninety percent of this article is most fabulous. She begins with a quote from Thich Net Nan. That's tough to say I'm just going to share that with you. The mind can go in a thousand directions. But I'm this beautiful path. I walk in peace with each step. The wind blows with each step. A flower blooms. It's easy to feel peaceful in positive when the sun is shining in life is going your way. It's a different matter when you're alone afraid sick or so tired that you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning as a three time cancer survivor. I know something about getting through difficult times. I know what it's like to feel exhausted and hopeless but I've also learned it's possible to find moment's peace and light under the most difficult of circumstances you can to here are six techniques that helped me find the light when things are tough. I hope they bring you the same sense of peace in ease. They bring me and here are her six suggestions number one. Stop pretending everything is okay. If things are going well acknowledge it. Stop judging yourself for feeling tired anxious or miserable instead of yelling at yourself for not bean upbeat in the face of trauma or trouble. Speak to yourself with the same understanding and respect us to support your friends and family tell yourself that you have every right to feel the way you feel right now but feelings are like the tide they come and they go and while things are tough today you are tough to. You've been brought through hard times before you'll get through this and tomorrow will be better than today. It might be better in just one way but it will be better number two. Give yourself the gift of living one hour at a time. When I was going through Chemo for breast cancer I was afraid I wouldn't have the strength to make it through the six long months of treatment and then came across the idea of living my life hour by hour and that changed everything.

"And why you don't think it does anymore? What has happened? Truthfully. I feel like I was a people pleaser, and I just at at the time of developing my business. I mean, I am past passionate about the trades and love building stuff. But I think I was more passionate about pleasing people. And. And I don't have that same drive for that. Why do you think that is because you just told me your wife just told you that your number one passion was helping people? So we have to figure out while you're going to get back into general contracting. You have to answer the question. You've heard me say this. I'm sure who do I most want to help. What problem die most want to solve what solution? Do I want to provide you providing you were doing all those things through landscaping and interior construction? And you said, well, I was a people pleaser so just kind of went in and did it, but I love the trades. So you're kind of all over the map. But the good news is nobody here's the deal. Pete. Or actually doing something that you love, and you still love the trades. You just said that so something's missing in this current business. And I don't know what it is. But I think you're confusing. What is missing with? Well, I'm not doing the right thing. That's what I see right here. So the question is what is missing you didn't really answer it. I know you said you got into it because you wanted to please people, but the reality is you do of the trades. You come alive when you are building something or designing something or fixing something. Yes. Or no. I knew I feel like it doesn't have the the the death. You know, when I you know, were were we loved Dave Ramsey in one, you know, when I hear the debt free screams, or when I, you know, a church people are in baptism and stuff. You know? And so my heart is really welling up for more of a deeper level. You know, when I when I see kind of like, you talk about your pain becomes your passions. When I when I see broken this, you know, whether it's finances or an marriage or personally, destroying personally, and and getting wait a second. I got an better place. I know he's going on. So I got an idea. But let me first diagnosed what I think is going on in. I'm okay, if you tell me, I'm wrong, okay? Yeah. I think Pete that you have fallen in love with the Dave Ramsey's of the world, you listened to my show, and you look at your work, and some point this wasn't always the case. But at some point this depth issue. You started going I'm just doing landscape design. I'm just renovating a bathroom or updating a kitchen, and that doesn't seem like it's got a whole lot of worth to people. Is that what's going on? No. Then what do you mean? A little bit of that. But I don't I don't. Yeah. I just I don't have the same. You know, the phone calls come in all ready at spring. My phone starting to go crazy. I just don't have the passion to go out there and do this Dement. And right. And there's a reason there's a reason for that. And you just told me that you are really a contradiction. And I think you've got to get out of your head start listen to your heart. So Pete, let me tell you what you've told me in the audience you said, you'd get fired up when you hear a debt free scream on Dave Ramsey show..

"Eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven. Let's go to Pete who's on the line in all Mont. Michigan Pete, you're on the Ken Coleman show. Hi, Ken, thanks for taking my call to the happy to man. How can I help? The show painting. Again, would you mind if I took a moment and just shared a little bit of my story. Just to in case someone out there is struggling no. In fact, I would prefer that you do go for it. Okay. Thank you. You know? I heard one time you mentioned to a woman that she had a passion about building playhouses, and you told her to you know, does she have someone that loves her and could just they're building their backyard. And and it's kind of a crazy concept to think of that, you know, but that's how I started my business actually is that I borrowed my buddies pickup truck, you know. Ten years ago, and after bankruptcy in the divorce and starting my life over ten years later, I have a small successful little business. So someone's out there struggling, and they're just don't think that that's an option. You know, the first view first truck that I bought after borrowed one was seven hundred and fifty dollars. I love a start my business. That's right. You know? And and it was crawling for five years. No. Oh, yeah. I'm so anyways, just to get to create, and that's awesome. Thank you for sharing that that is. That's what people need to hear. They need to hear that. I if p can do it. I can do it. I love that. Thank is. Yeah. It can be a tough journey in. One step in front of the other. There you go. My question for you is the small business. I I don't really have the passion for that. I used to it's been great. It's it's been a great opportunity to create an income. But I'm really looking for something where I can be more passionate about it. I feel like I used to have a time a passion for it and really thrive on it. But I just not living in that space anymore. To be you have an idea of what you want to go into you have a couple ideas. I do have you know, as my wife. You know, what you know, Ken is going to ask, you know, if the people around me, you know, what do you do best? You know, what is the Honey? And so she's she's sad that I love to help people, you know, them in the process. My foreman is going to be taking over my business. And I feel like I'm more excited about kidding him. Started than me doing the business. You know, what is I get so Mia? An idea of of you know, that I do enjoy that. Right. Well, we gotta get more specific on helping people. But before we get there. So what kind of business was it? Or is it shall instruction landscape construction. And then also appeared constructions landscape plus renovations that kind of thing. Okay. You've already got an agreement in place that you're forms going to buy the business from you. Yes. Yep. I'm going to do more of a general contracting for now until I kind of figure out what the next step is. Right. So that I don't have transition. Let's look at what you were passionate about what what that business. How it fed your passion? How it allowed you the landscape design the interior construction. How that fed your passion?.

"I'm trying to move into something where I feel more like I'm doing something to help others, so either healthcare education something similar to that. Okay. Well, this is easy dawn, I I don't I don't mean turned up. I don't mean to sound silly or overly simple. But a great administrative assistant is interchangeable between industries. So the fact that you're having a hard time finding in administrative position in a different industry means you're just not looking in the right places. You're not talking to the right people. Okay. Aren't you? I thought that it would be pretty simple applied to several jobs, and I had to that actually had a referral. Okay. I just got not even to an interview stage. Just no more not interested. Sorry. Well, but that does it first of all that doesn't mean that you're worthless. It doesn't mean that there's no hope. Means you're over two big deal. Bill big. So how strong were these references on these other two? Fairly strong one one actually didn't know the people that I'd be working for is more of a general reference as current employees and then at different office, and one was someone who actually knew the hiring person. Okay. Great. So the second one is how you have to do it. The first one is is like playing the lottery, and I'm not surprised you didn't get it. So you re so I throw out the first one because you know, I'm serious. That's not good strategy. And I'm not getting on. I'm not getting on you dawn. I get this. Call an Email all the time. So I just want everybody else's listen, dawn. Did the first time is what most of you do and it doesn't work. So we throw that one out because you didn't do it the right way. So done count the second one. You did the right way just didn't work out. Let me also encourage you on something because you don't need anything for me other than encouragement right now. And then I'm going to. Push you. Okay. Okay. Hiring an administrative assistant position is way, more personal and particular then another role. Do you agree with that? Yes. Yeah. You do because you know, it's much more a hate to use the word intimate. But that's really what it is in the pure sense of the word. In administrative assistant role is very it's like the right, arm or left arm of somebody. That's how close and so that has to be a good fit not just for them. But also for you like, I would tell you you have to be careful to don't just take a administrative position take one that you know, you are going to be the end to their Yang. You know? And you trust that, you know, exactly what I'm talking about even better than I do. And so what I would tell you is get your chin up on and start working those acquaintances not just your own personal close network. But you're quaint ses. We know from sociology studies that acquaintances lead to more job opportunities than any other person in our network. So you've just got to start looking and talking and looking and talking and connecting and trust me your role is so valuable. It's only a matter of time. But you can't just put yourself out there in a normal. Well, I'm gonna go apply. No, you've got to have somebody who says man dons a rockstar. She was she was a a real estate agent administrative system for twenty years now, she just wants to move into more this line of work to have some connection to her work. You know, you're talking to people that you know, that our, nurses and doctors, and you pick those industries that you listed out for me, and you go who do I know that works in those areas, and all of a sudden who you know, turns into ten twenty thirty. Times the connections. And so you just have to be very vigilant and get somebody who knows you. Well, who can recommend you to somebody else who has an influence or in that hiring process, and it's going to happen. So get your chin up get back in the game and truly be intentional. And use that six degrees of Kevin bacon. Concept. And get yourself in front of somebody who needs a good administrative assistant and view have been recommended personally by somebody who you've either worked with worked for somebody..

Helping these particular people we'll two main thing to me right now in society, I think that the older generation kinda gets overlooked because of technology. We don't go to the older population as much as we used to because you know, they can't teach us how to work an iphone. But I think there's so much value that. People can offer us, and I think that sometimes they get kind of put in the background, and they don't get treated the way they should be.

New Emojis, Including “Pinching Fingers,” Are Coming in April
"Him asked. What's the goal here? With all these emojis is the goal to just end. Of words. You it started out. It started out that we stopped talking to each other verbally, right? Then would just text each other. We don't have conversations we don't have phone conversations anymore. It's just a text conversation. And now, so that's not enough. Now, we're gonna get super lazy and not actually right words anymore. Now will have an emoji for every word there is because that's what we're looking at right now. Well, I think that the the point and you're kinda right? Is that the easier? It is to convey, a message the better off we are at least in the people that make these things in mind, and then the people that consume them. I mean, it's very popular to use them. It's the same thing as like using shorthand in the sense of like text messaging people say L O L instead of laughing out loud. What is just enabling us to be as lazy as we possibly can say anti-social? Here's here's the thing. I don't know what I'm gonna ever use the term Slough in a conversation yet. There's an emoji for it. I can't remember the last time. I actually said the word sloth to anybody. But there is an emoji for two hundred thirty new emojis. Well, it's because you wouldn't say well like eating the animal or like the the sin, quote, unquote, either or because for the Sinbo people just say, I feel lazy or I feel tired. I feel sloth. I've I've never said I felt I've never used in a conversation ever, those emojis are so tiny. Anyway, how the hell you know, what a slot is. I can't wait to see what that one's gonna look like that. There's two hundred thirty new ones, including waffle sloth, one people in wheelchairs inclusivity. Butter onions, juice box. Flamingo seeing eye dogs mechanical arms and legs. People using canes. Sounds like a dream. I had last night. Let's see here blind people using walking canes yawning face. All right. So I saved the best for last a hand making a pinching gesture. This indicates tiny penis. Which will be the new emoji that will end millions of conversation. If a woman is ever looking to end the conversation a conversation with with with a guy she doesn't want to talk to or a guy she's arguing with or her boyfriend or a husband. That's the emoji that will end the conversation. Although she may not get the last word because there's another emoji. And this one is a drop of blood, which represents menstruation swear to you. I swear to you. So if you come at him with the tiny penis. What do you think he's coming with next? There's your answer. Mode so guys seriously. You can have the last word in your in your lazy text conversation. You could literally have an argument with your better half. Denver open your mouth, right? Exactly. And she's into that team tiny Peterson emoji. You know, what you coming back with that? Right. That's crazy that tiny penis emojis. Probably the is like a response for women that get unsolicited depict. Right. That is that is the perfect way to shut those down. Right. But it's also a perfect way to shut down the guy.

In, Baluchistan as noble stunned the situation is complex and besides Islamic, state dental balut insurgents who are carrying out attacks in interior. Parts of. Bullets Not designed journalists with dawn. Newspaper in question in. A moment we have to be speaking to our, correspondent in Islamabad let's go now though to Donna con man the? Fellow at the institute of development studies at the university of Sussex in the United Kingdom she's on the line. Now any election in any country is always, important but how would you rank this one in the history of Pakistan Hi thank you for having me on the show I think this is a very important election this is the first time in Pakistan's. History that two consecutive governments will have completed their tenure and then handed power over peacefully, to the to another elected government so the fact that we had an election in two thousand and. Eight and then exactly five years. Later in two thousand, thirteen and now in two thousand eighteen. Is. A significant move forward given Pakistan's history of moving between military regimes. And democratic elected governments pretty much rejected actually it works. In in these patterns of sort of ten, years tenure durations of regimes and the fact that we've now moved possibly beyond that is a. Significant moment in the. Country's history it's said to be very close people, use the expression neck and neck between the two parties yes why Well in the two thousand thirteen election PML and had established itself as the largest party and the Pakistan People's Party. Was the second largest and then there was the third largest which was Iran Hans Pakistan, Tehrik in south now the race seems to have been is nectar neck race according to most of. The polling results that we have. The tween Nevada Sharief's, Pakistan Muslim League novas and in Ron. Ron. Sparks Pity I and and the fact that PTI has certainly gained in the last five. Years has received quite a bit of attention but, I think a large part of the story. That has been reported in the press quite widely is the fact that b.. N. nausea response he has been, constrained to, a very large extent in terms of the the arrest of the ex prime minister himself along with that of his daughter who was who was meant to. By all accounts meant to succeed him they're both in jail right now through this election and there's been other arrests within the party other bodies have also talked about a constraint electoral space within which to campaign so what we have. Now though I mean it's it's while, I say that there's been constraints space what. We do have and it's an important thing within a democratic transition is a very competitive election and I think there's some level of, excitement, about, the fact that it is at, least still Competitive Do we know what issues voters have been considering when they come to cost for? Votes most of Pakistan's voters live in rural areas why they had to pick one party over the. Other this is actually one of the missing pieces in the puzzle of Pakistan's. Politics the fact that we know very little so far about how it's voters vote in how they make. Decisions we have fairly large sort of conflicted stories about dependent, ignorant rural. Voters and my research shows I've been working in rural areas on how voters behave and the way they make their choices for for many years, now and they're very strategic in voting in using their voice to vote for, to to gain access to things that they care. About and the things they care about often are very basic services These these are these are neither dependent voters and nor are they strictly clench. Realistic in the sense of selling their vote to the highest bidder but the very strategic? In the way they use their vote and how to gain greater access to basic services like water. And sanitation and education and health and just having doctors come in and they're. The health centers so there's the problem then is to try and connect that kind of voting behavior to. To the following of parties and whether or not these translate, into stable. Support basis for political parties we also don't understand the voting behavior of of fifty percent of the electorate which is women and we know in, Pakistan that the gap has been quite large the gender gap in turn out, has been very large this time this has there's. Been a twenty four percent increase in the registration of women Which is a very positive. Development but there's a difference between women registering and actually coming out vote and, just in the. Last few minutes there's been a report that there's so many women. Have turned out in one open city vote that this. Caused a ritual for, disruption on the streets so this is all this is all fantastic News but overall I think if we brought a rural voters in urban voters together I, think a really broad story that we could talk about is the fact that they care about policy issues very much they care about the economy they. Care about rising prices the care about jobs We'll look many, things that Chandana Khan My fellow at the institute of. Development studies of the university of Sussex we have now made contact with. Our correspondent ten Islamabad's Kamani and Sekundar. We had that bomb blast in quarter how has it been, elsewhere in the country on polling day.
