"general vivek murthy" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"Has On is a staff writer for the Atlantic who covers health and science? She says she knows hand about being weird. She grew up a Russian, Jewish, immigrant in a small conservative town in Texas and her outside identity stayed with her. In seven years of writing about weirdness, she says she has come to realize that there are unexpected upsides that her weirdness is in part responsible for her success. So when you think about being weird, you think about it more in terms of being a misfit in your context than having just quirky qualities as a person. I really struggled with how to define weirdness for this book, because there's the research on weirdness, but you're right. It does tend to focus on like the person who was wearing a red jacket instead of the black jacket, but I wanna do focus on something that was more consistent, so I wanted to focus on people who were different from everyone. Everyone else around them as opposed to just had a quirky hobby, because if you think about it, if you have a quirky hobby like writing a unicycle, you could join a club of UNICYCLISTS and suddenly not be weird anymore. In fact feel very comfortable and not alienated at all, so I didn't WanNa pick something that was just generally thought of as unique. I wanted to pick something that was more enduring obviously right now we have a ten polarization in the US in a lot of right versus left conflict, and some of the people that I interviewed for the book, actually were trump supporters who moved from California to Texas that they could be more accepted by. Trump supporters and they felt like you know if they were wearing trump, t shirts, or praying or something like that openly in California that they wouldn't be accepted, so actually hooked up with this organization called Conservative move, which helps Californians moved to Texas, so they can be with other Republicans. It sounds far fetched, but it's actually now like a business model, so you interviewed some really fascinating people for the book. I would love to hear in particular about an Amish Woman that you wrote about Emma Amish Woman that I interviewed grew up in this really conservative Missouri Community, and if you WanNa, be amish you have to. To buy in to the idea of being honest, it is not like a half-hearted thing. You basically are educated through eighth grade. Then you stop going to school and if you're a woman, you have babies with a guy who is one of five boys that you can choose when you're sixteen to Mary, and you basically Cook and clean for the rest of your life and Babysit. She looked at that future and she was like I don't want to do this. It's not just the technology thing. It's not just the like farming lifestyle that doesn't appeal. It's like I don't want my opportunities to be this limited. She always felt this feeling of doubt inside of her. So when she was sixteen or seventeen, she just walked out of her family's farmhouse, and she had smuggled a cell phone and used it to call this friend of a friend who basically took her down to Texas to South Texas where they happen to live, and she kind of started life all over again. She was a US citizen who didn't speak. English because they speak Pennsylvania Dutch. She didn't understand any social rules or norms. She was completely alienated from the Internet technology how. People interact on a day-to-day basis, and it really just goes to show how awful it can be both to feel like an outsider in your community, but then even when you try to break out of that community and be more free or join a different community that period of transition is still. Still really difficult. So what did you learn from her? About coping with being outside or going from being an outsider in one context to then living that in another, she really was one of the most difficult stories in the book. She had one of the rough times, but I found that she really use this strategy of changing the way she thought about being an outsider. It went from being where she was trying to hide that she was Amish or apologize for. For it especially among the modern Americans or whatever you WANNA call them that she was meeting. She kind of reestablished herself. She had to kind of learn to think about her outsider dumb in a new way in a more positive way, so she now is out. She's like a normal twenty-something, so she's dating and meeting people and she has to be like look being amish, having this extremely traumatic and difficult thing that I went through made me who I am it's. It's not the entirety of WHO I am. You can't make amish jokes about me because that's not cool but I'm now tougher and stronger. Because I went through this, and once she started asserting herself in that way. Things got a little bit better for her than when she was apologizing for her differences. That was just a preview of the next big idea. Be Sure to subscribe to wonder he's the next guy idea on apple podcasts, spotify or wherever you're listening now. We used to go to the mall and do.

"Are there things that we can do to improve the quality of these virtual and socially distanced interactions through this? Yeah, that's a great question. The truth has been there. There is really no full substitute for being in person that is. That's true because that's how we've interacted for thousands of years. That's what our bodies nervous systems are used to responding to, but with that said I do think that we can use technology in particular ways they can help keep our connections alive, and in fact can actually deepen our connections from where they were before the pandemic, so for example if we make a point. To put some time assigned each day could just be fifteen minutes to spend with people. We love whether that's. Video conferencing with them or speaking to them on the phone. That can serve as a lifeline for us, and even though that's only a few minutes, a day can leave us. Feeling more deeply connected. The second thing we can do is to focus on the quality of time we have with the people were speaking with. And that means putting away distraction when we're speaking with them, you know if you had this experience of being deeply listened to of having somebody who's fully present. When you're talking to them, you know that five minutes of conversation like that is so powerful. And weaken achieve that right now without spending a single minute with somebody simply by giving them our full attention. I considered to last things. which is one the power of solitude. I had a professor in medical school. Was it extraordinarily busy busy professor. She was a mom, two wonderful boys. She taught medical students. She took care patients. She helped run the medical school. She was incredibly busy, but what she did is recognizing the need for solitude, but not having the time to spend an hour meditating each day. She would use the twenty seconds that she had while. She was washing her hands before she saw a patient. She would just think about the things. She had to be grateful for that day. And then she would walk into that room after those twenty seconds. Healing, nor at peace and more able to be herself..

"They've lost their jobs and they've done this because we told them we needed to buy time for a hospital systems not to be overrun for US build testing and tracing capacity to be prepared and the question is. Are we doing right by people who have made those sacrifices? Are we making use of that time to prepare I? Don't think we're doing enough now. And that is what worries me will. Will Vivek I wanna go back to something that you touched on a moment ago. Which is the importance of truth in the public trust in dealing with the crisis like covid nineteen, when you were in the Obama administration dealing with the Zeka Abol epidemics, how important things like truth in the public trust to the overall success of the effort you know in moments this what we've seen in past administrations is people pull together in times of emergency. We have to communicate. Consistently and with one voice. That doesn't mean that we never change your mind, but if we get new data and he tells us we need to change course. We explained that a public. We help bring them along our process of decision making. I worry that we're not doing a good job here as country when it comes to. Delivering on these core benchmarks that we have to meet to open safely and to address a second wave, and where sowing confusion in the country as we have allowed this response to become politicized a simple example. The CDC issued guidance saying that we should be wearing masks in public yet. Somehow that public health guidance has become politicized and now wearing a mask seems to be. Be a political statement, which side of the aisle you're on right that is truly unfortunate, because when public health becomes politicised, people suffer, and we lose more lives. We've already seen that happen. I were worry many of the debts that we're seeing now in the country I do think could have been avoided if we had an earlier and more effective and more unified response. And in some sense, this is just an extension of an alarming trend that we've seen over the past few years, which is the politicization of science? Even now I'm seeing a significant number of people on my social media, people I know making this whole. The Cure is worse than the disease argument against the quarantine, and they point to the mental health impact of physical isolation in particular..

"I, talked with senator. Ben Sasse about political polarization, and I was shocked at how often loneliness crept into that conversation. Do you think that our politics and polarization or contributing to our sense of isolation or might even be a vicious cycle where the two are just feeding off of each other, and that's a good question. I do think this is deeply tied an together. They issues of loneliness and political polarization. We've evolved to seek out our tribe and the question that we have to ask ourselves in the modern age is who constitutes our tribe. In thousands of years ago, it was people who look like us and came from similar background. But the world in which we live in now. A world that is more pluralistic. That is more inclusive. Requires us to expand our definition of what could constitute a tribe. The United States in many ways was built upon that premise and premise that our tribe is not defined by the countries that we came from the language that we speak. It was defined by our desire to seek out freedom to work for it and to protect it. That was a radical idea for so many reasons because it ran counter to thousands of years of evolution where people were primarily getting together with people who shared very similar backgrounds and experiences, and that was her tribe. Okay, so then how do we get back to that sense of shared values and purpose in this country what we are called to do? The modern age now on the United States and I think increasingly countries around the world. A C- be more explicit and clear about who constitutes tribe. To define that not by our skin, color or language or cultural heritage, but by our values by our shared experience, shared outlook for the future, we all care about the welfare of our children and we WANNA. See for world for them. We want our children to have opportunity. We don't want our children to struggle in poverty there alone constitute just a few of the core values that can serve as a point of connection. That's where we have to focus. That's how we. We have to build a relationship and if we build relationship that becomes our foundation of dialogue, that's how we begin to address political polarization in the US and around the World Vivek a half to ask you about covid nineteen, and inevitably some of this will dovetail with our conversation about loneliness first off. Do you think that the trump administration has done enough and done enough early enough to combat the coronavirus? Well, let me say from outset, bandit having been a part of. Two major responses when I was in government the Bulla response. And Ezekiel response. I know that it is. Very difficult to be learning about something you while you're trying to take action to address it. And inevitably in a Republican and Democratic administrations are stumbles. But what matters is how you react to those stumbles? Do you learn from the mistakes that you made to communicate openly and honestly with the public about those so that you can build trust? And what I worry about is that we were both late to the response here with covid nineteen in the US. But. We also continue to struggle. When it comes to. Pulling out the stops to make sure that we are expanding the core capacities that we need in which include testing the ability to do contact tracing the ability to ensure that our hospital systems have the protective equipment and capacity to search. We have a second wave. The People in America have made extraordinary sacrifices. To, stay home to turn their lives upside down. In many cases..

"Of it. And what worries me. Ben In the modern world is that. Our time for solitude. As evaporated as we become busier and busier and his our. smartphones hip field in all the spare moments in our life. But I also worry that we've become uncomfortable with solitude. And that when we're alone with our thoughts. that it doesn't, it makes us feel. uncomfortable. We don't know what you do with that and we can very quickly pick up our phone. Look at the news or or read something on social media and feel the comfort and certain t at comes from those things, and not having to confront our own thoughts, but comfort with being alone developing and protecting time for solitude, these are essential in everyone's life ride, and in the same sense how? How much of this problem can be attributed to the fact that we are constantly distracted by texts. Our instagram feeds work emails. Wimmer, supposedly spending quality time with our kids are having dinner with a spouse or a friend is the lack of presence in our interactions factor in why so many people feel unheard, unnoticed unimportant alone will Ben. You're hitting on me. It's really important which is I, do think. That the way in which we're using technology these days having a dilute effect on our relationships. So if I'm talking to a good friend and the phone. But I'm also refreshing my social media feed checking my inbox and Google question that popped into my head while I'm checking the score in the game that's on the TV in the background and occasionally looking at the news. This is a very distracted conversation. I'm having. But it's actually not unusual for people to be doing that and I have done this to not proud to say it, but I have done this, too. Because we convince ourselves, we can multitask. Science is very clear that we cannot what we do when we think we're multitasking. We actually rapidly task switch, which means when we're paying attention to our inbox or not actually fully listening to the person..

"What are the statistics to back that up EVAC? Term Meta analysis that was done at Brigham Young University by Julian Lanston. Research was done after a growing body of evidence was showing that loneliness to be associated with poor health outcomes. And would Julianne found in her work was at loneliness, was associated with a reduction in lifespan. and was in fact, also associated with an increased risk of premature death, and when you look at the degree to which the lifespan was shortened in people who struggled with loneliness, it was similar to the mortality impact of smoking fifteen cigarettes a day. It was greater than the mortality impact of city and sedentary living. It also seems particularly difficult to diagnose and treat because loneliness sometimes disguises itself and so many other ways as depression or anxiety over eating addiction while the root cause is far more elusive. How do we go about treating a health crisis? That doesn't always show itself in the most obvious ways. I tend to avoid thinking about it. As a as an illness, the way we might think about diabetes or high blood pressure because I think that loneliness is more complicated than that I think it. It is a normal state of being that can have adverse effects when it stays around for a long time, experience it for prolonged periods of time into the same way that I wouldn't consider hunger, disease or thirstier disease. I wouldn't consider loneliness into disease, but I do think what's important is that we understand one how to respond to it effectively into what to do. When it persists for a long period of time. And I say this because I you know i. one of the things that has struck me and I and I say this despite my medical training is that I do think sometimes we can have A. Tendency to over medical is things in in our culture, and there's some cases where that's the right thing to do. there other cases where that can. Actually take the issue that we're talking about. An almost remove our agency from it right and not everyone who just kind of enjoys doing their own thing is lonely. What is the difference between someone who is maybe a bit of a loner or enjoy solitude? Someone who genuinely suffers from loneliness, that's a great question, and it brings up the question of definitions, so loneliness is a subjective state, and it's in contrast to an objective term like isolation, which is more a description of the number of people we have around us, but loneliness is really about how we feel about those connections, so if we are a freshman in college surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands of new students. We. Don't know any of them and don't feel comfortable. Showing up is who we are. The net can become a very lonely experience very quickly.

The point I took away from him, and from the stories of so many others that I heard around the country was that loneliness is far more common than I had thought ride, and even before you realize that this was the national crisis. You admit that you yourself have battled with loneliness at various points in your life. Tell us about that. My own experiences of loneliness as a child, which were in deep and painful during. During my time in elementary school, in which continued at various points during adulthood, but it reminded me of my experiences as a doctor, taking care of so many patients who came into the hospital alone, and even at critical moments when we had to give them a difficult diagnosis or make a really tough decision on treatment. There was nobody there to be with them to help them. Make those tough choices they were all by. And, of course, not a lot of people want to admit that they're lonely because we have a bit of a stigma against it, have you found that others who suffer from this are maybe finding it comforting and encouraging to hear a successful former surgeon, general of the United States open up about his own bouts with this issue, and I do hope that it's helpful and I hope that we can all start sharing more of our stories when it comes to loneliness because the truth is that when I was a child, I, never spoke about these things. Even though I was struggling with loneliness, and I didn't talk to my parents about it or anyone else because I was ashamed. I thought that somehow being lonely meant that I was broken. That I wasn't likeable and I certainly didn't want to feel that way, but what we know now and what I know now that I wished I had known before, is it? Loneliness is not a disease or evidence a you are broken loneliness, in fact, a natural signal like hunger or thirst that our body sends to us when we are lacking. That we need for our survival, and in this case, so social connection. And when we respond to that need by calling a friend or visiting a one, and the loneliness may subsided just as hunger thirst, sub- subside when we get food or water, but if it persists for a long time. That's been loneliness kits to have serious effects on us. Impacting our mental health as well as our fiscal health. Yeah actually you made this rather astonishing and perhaps controversial statement when you said that loneliness is worse for us than smoking or Obesity A..

"Mind when it comes to your health? And I would sit back and listen and I am. Some extraordinary things some things that. Didn't surprise me although they were really important for me to hear like about. How devastating, the OPIOID epidemic had been to families I, heard stories about violence in communities I heard from parents who are worried about their children using aping devices and weren't sure how to address that. I heard from so many people who wondered if technology was ultimately. Helping, their social lives are leaving. Them were disconnected. But. What I realize is behind, so many of these stories were these unspoken threads of loneliness. And people wouldn't come up to me and say hi. I'm Ben I'm lonely and Vivier come lonely, but they would say things like I feel I have to carry this entire burden on my own. Where feel if I disappear tomorrow? No one would even notice. Or feel invisible. And I was hearing this from college students. From. Elderly folks healing hearing this from parents. From people in remote fishing villages in Alaska. And for members of Congress who would confide this hushed tones behind closed doors, really members of Congress I guess I could see that I. Mean Congressman aren't exactly treated like everyone else. In every interaction they have with a person is probably a complaint or an ask rarely anyone ever happy with you. You can't really vent about your problems. What kind of things did you hear from them? Yes, in fact I remember one member of Congress in particular that I. Was Meeting with in his office and just me and him at the time. There's no staff around. And he confided that he had heard me talk about loneliness and was happy that I was addressing it but acid. Some point could do something about the struggles with loneliness and emotional wellbeing among members of Congress. He said that many of them would would have to move to DC away from their families.

"So I thought we'd talk with someone who is an actual experts former surgeon. General Vivek Murthy all right so first things first. Welcome to the show. Dr Thank you so much for being here. Speak to be with you trevor. Well thank you for being there and then thank you for talking to me here. I should say I feel like we have to change our language for the world. We live in now. You one of the few people who has a unique insights into what is happening now is somebody who served as the US surgeon general you had a very specific job and that is essentially keeping the nation healthy and you've commented on how unfair it is to send doctors into fight. The Corona virus when the government is not giving them the equipment that they need to protect themselves. What do you think people are missing about the fight? Doctors are having with this virus or trevor. This feels very personal to me. You know if it is my friends. My family members and colleagues were on the front lines. Now of the war that we're waging with this new virus in very dangerous virus and we're asking them in many cases to going to battle without the armor the your doctors having reuse masks because your hospitals are running out even though they know that puts immigration risked their doctors who are running out of gowns and gloves. There are hospitals that are running out eventually later than they're trying to figure out how to use one ventilator in share them between two patients at the same time so he's not wrong to ask doctors and nurses to work hard. It's on bad wrong to ask him to sacrifice Take care of their patients that I believe it's wrong to send them in without the protection that they deserve. And that's why as a country we need to be pulling out the stops on ramping up production of all the materials that they need. It's not enough to say we'll do it when you need it. It's not enough to say well it's up to somebody else to solve that problem out all every level of government you need to be making this the top priority because doctors nurses and healthcare workers are putting their lives on the line for us. It's high end a growing consensus that starting to emerge both online and unfortunately in the White House. This idea that the cure which is social distancing etc. Some people are calling. It is going to be worse than what is being caused by. People being unemployed excetera. What do you think people missing when they say we're just going to have to live with this? Allow people to get sick and accept that some people are going to die. Will I think it's important to consider the pros and cons of every approach and lets me on sears? Perfect approach here but it is. I think a false choice to say that we have to choose between people's lives and the economy because a real way that we should be addressing. This virus is to recognize that the way we say the economy's actually by defeating the virus unless we take these steps and make sure that these are in place New really should not be thinking about pulling back that is a recipe for making the situation situation both the health and the economic situation. Much much worse before I let you go. You have a book that is coming out. That speaks to a situation that we'll find ourselves in right now and that is where isolated from people that we know and love. Many people are forced to stay at home either by themselves or not with the community. They used to you writes in your book about how society struggling with a new disease and that is essentially loneliness. What are some of the things? People can do to try and maintain their mental health as well as their physical health. Trevor because it's important not just speakers loneliness ill poorly but also because we now understand the chronic loneliness is actually bad for. Our health increases our risk for art disease. It shortens are is associated with a shorter lifespan. But there are things we can do to ensure that we strengthen social connection. His heart is this time. Is I think that we can retention. Come out of it even stronger. We Houston so number one. I think it's important that we spend at least fifteen minutes a day if not more engaged with people that we love whether that means be conferencing with them writing to them calling them on the phone so we can hear their voice. The second is really important that we make that time count. And that means improving the quality of our time with others by decreasing the distractions that we experience during our interactions. So instead of talking to somebody on the.
