Brené Brown joins "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King to discuss dealing with the spiritual, mental and physical effects of living through the coronavirus pandemic. Brown, a best-selling author and popular lecturer, provides tips on navigating anxiety while social distancing. She says physical movement is key because trauma, grief and anxiety are stored in our bodies. Brown, who is a professor at the University of Houston and has spent over 20 years studying the subject of emotions and vulnerability, says it's okay to show vulnerability during this time and that our compassion and empathy are not finite. During this time of crisis, Brown says, we should not rank our suffering. It's okay to "own your feelings" but "just piss and moan with perspective," she says. Hear why strong, long-lasting, sustainable relationships are not dependent on a 50/50 break-down but rather on having a "gap plan." Plus, Brown shares why she loves recording her new podcast "Unlocking Us" so much and why her recent "60 Minutes" profile was "the hardest, most vulnerable thing" she's ever done.
