Do you find it tough to focus on the positive, but so easy to see the negative? It's OK, your brain is wired that way.

But you can change that so your brain can more easily focus on the positives in your life. Let's get started: smile and think of something good that happened today. #positivethinking   #happythougths   #smile   #focusonthepositive  
Our brains have developed in such a way as to recognize and respond to the negative far more than to the positive.

A flashback to childhood, or an adult coping tool to reduce anxiety?

Adult coloring books are becoming increasingly popular — and for good reason! Coloring can help calm us and center us in the moment. There's nothing childish about it. Perhaps we were smarter as children than we think!

Do you color? We'd love to see your work!
SALT LAKE CITY — If you think coloring books are just for kids, think again. As FOX 13 News’ Max Roth tells us, adults are taking to coloring as a way to meditate and clear their minds. ̶…

Every day, 44 people in the U.S. die from overdose of prescription painkillers, and many more become addicted, according to the CDC.
If you suspect you or someone you know has a prescription drug addiction, help is available. Most drug addictions can be successfully overcome with help from your primary care physician, a support group of friends and family, and outpatient therapy.

MOMS — Do/Did you have a picky eater in your house?
What did you do to help encourage your kids to broaden their tastes? 
#pickyeating   #selectiveeatingdisorder   #eatingdisorders  
Picky eating in grade-school kids is sometimes an early sign of “selective eating disorder,” which also raises risk of depression and anxiety.

Celebrate Pi Day with this YUMMY Chicken Pot Pie recipe!

It's healthier than restaurant or frozen pot pies (less saturated fat and sodium). Plus, each slice has a full serving of vegetables!

INGREDIENTS
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1 pound chicken breasts, diced into 1-inch cubes
2 tsp black pepper, divided
1 tsp garlic powder
1 yellow onion, diced
2 tsp minced garlic
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen diced carrots
1 cup frozen or canned no-salt-added corn
1 tsp dried thyme
½ cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1½ cups low fat milk
2 reduced-fat refrigerated pie crusts

PREPARATION
1. Soften pie crusts as directed on package.

2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

3. Season chicken with black pepper and powdered garlic. In a large pot over medium-high heat, saute diced chicken in 1 Tbsp. oil until just cooked through. Remove chicken to plate.

4. Add the rest of the oil, diced onion and garlic to the pot. Saute until translucent.

5. Add chicken broth, frozen vegetables, garlic and thyme. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Slowly sprinkle flour into the mixture, stirring constantly, so the sauce thickens. Add milk and cooked diced chicken and stir well. Simmer another 2-3 minutes and remove from heat

7. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Lay one softened pie crust across the bottom of the pan. Pour mixture into crust-lined pan. Top with second crust, seal edge and cut several slits in top with a knife.

8. Bake for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. During last 15 minutes of baking, edges of crust may need to be covered in foil strips to prevent excessive browning.

9. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Dads are SO tough... until it comes to the delivery room.

Believe it or not, plenty of dads pass out during their partner's labor and delivery from fear or nervousness of all the needles and blood. Nurse Dani shares a simple acronym — DADS — for how dads can stay strong and be almost as tough as their partner!
