Getting stuck in the negatives (and how to get unstuck) | Alison Ledgerwood | TEDxUCDavis

Alison Ledgerwood joined the Department of Psychology at UC Davis in 2008 after completing her PhD in social psychology at New York University. She is interested in understanding how people think, and how they can think better. Her research, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, investigates how certain ways of thinking about an issue tend to stick in people's heads. Her classes on social psychology focus on understanding the way people think and behave in social situations, and how to harness that knowledge to potentially improve the social world in which we all live. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

How to Brush Your Teeth Properly – For Kids

This video is all about brushing your teeth — directed at children. Some topics include: plaque, cavities, and how to brush your teeth. The video also tells you how much fluoride toothpaste to put on your toothbrush, and the best methods to use when brushing your teeth. There is also instructions on how to floss your teeth. Diet and general health tips are also included, such as eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking plenty of water. Find a My Kid's Dentist location or request an appointment today by logging in at www.mykidsdentistonline.com. ——————————————————————————————————– [TRANSCRIPT] [Ruthie] Yeah!… Time to brush! [Girl] Why do we brush? [Ruthie] We brush to remove plaque and stay clean. [Frank] What's plaque? [Ruthie] Plaque is yucky stuff that can stick to teeth… Plaque is bad because it's full of nasty germs. These germs can hurt teeth by making little holes called cavities. Plaque and cavities make teeth weaker. That's why it's super important to brush all the plaque off every day. To keep healthy teeth we have to brush for 2 minutes every morning and 2 minutes every night before bed! It's really important to brush your teeth the RIGHT WAY! First make sure to use a special kid's toothbrush when you brush. Kid's brushes fit little mouths and have soft bristles. Put a little dot (about the size of a pea) of fluoride toothpaste on your brush. Moms have to help babies brush their teeth and babies can't use fluoride toothpaste. You have to be able to spit to use fluoride! Once you have the toothpaste on your toothbrush…open your mouth wide! Start with the teeth in the back of your mouth and brush in little circles. Work your way to the teeth in the front of your mouth and don't forget to brush the gums! Move the brush back and forth gently in short strokes. Brush the top, front, and back sides of each tooth. Make sure you get the inside of all the teeth. When you're done be sure to spit out all the toothpaste. Don't swallow the toothpaste…it will upset your tummy. When you're done brushing it's time to floss. Flossing can help remove food and plaque from in between teeth and along the gum line. Parents should start flossing their children's teeth as soon as they have two teeth that touch and they should floss twice a week. When you floss, break off about 18 inches of floss. Wind the floss around your pointer finger. Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and fingers. Guide the floss between your teeth using a gentle rubbing motion. Never snap the floss into your gums. When the floss reaches the gum line, curve it into a C shape against one tooth. Hold the floss tightly against the tooth. Gently rub the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gum with an upward motion. By the time you're 7 or so, you should be flossing every night at bedtime with your

How to practice emotional first aid | Guy Winch

We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
