(BPT) - Spending their days hunched over phones, tablets or computers and their free time at spin class or playing sports, millennials are the next generation poised to experience chronic pain. Millennials say acute and chronic pain are already interfering with their quality of life.But while older generations are more likely to turn to medication for pain relief, millennials' preferred method is lifestyle changes such as exercising, eating right, quitting smoking and losing weight, according to a nationwide survey commissioned by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA).The survey found that millennials were half as likely as baby boomers to have turned to opioids to manage pain, and 1 in 5 millennials regret that they used the highly addictive painkillers.But while the results reflect a positive trend, they also reveal a knowledge gap. The survey found many millennials were:* More likely to obtain opioids inappropriately. Ten percent of millennials (ages 18-36) obtained opioids through another household member's prescription, compared to 3 percent of Gen Xers (37-52), 1 percent of baby boomers (53-71) and none of the silent generation (72-92).* More likely to think it's OK to take an opioid without a prescription.

Remember the day your teacher tried to tell you the heart looked like a chunk of beef?
Do you remember the day? Eighth grade science class. You’re learning about human anatomy: the lungs, kidneys, spleen. Then out of nowhere your teacher tries to tell you the heart looks like a chunk of beef, and not the elegant two top hills that taper to a point you had come to know and love.
So why do we draw hearts the way we do? And how the heck did a muscle responsible for pumping blood throughout our body become a symbol for love, anyway?
Most resolutions are forgotten by March. This one is not only easy to keep, it'll make you much happier than losing a few pounds.
So here’s seven ways you can start to think positive in the new year:
1) When you wake up in the morning, complete the following: My purpose is _________________.
Your answer could be anything from how you want to live your life to what you have planned for the day, but whatever it is, starting your day off this way gives you meaning and sets a positive goal and mindset.
2) Do something physical right when you wake up.
Okay, I know I said we weren’t discussing weight loss as a resolution, and we’re still not. Exercise is so much more than an means to an end. When you exercise first thing in the morning, you feel a sense of accomplishment, which can carry into the rest of the day’s tasks. Plus, by getting up each day when you’d rather catch another hour of sleep, you’re teaching yourself discipline, which will also carry over into your life.
3) Think about the future, but live in the present.
Happiness means different things to different people, but one way to ensure you won’t ever be happy is to live your life thinking about how far you still have to go.

Enough with the soda already!
By Caitlin Zientarski
We don’t get preachy very often, especially when it comes to food. We are all about moderation…if you want a dessert every once and a while, go ahead! Enjoy life.
But this obsession with soda has got to stop! It’s literally killing us.
See, soda isn’t a drink like water or even juice. It’s liquid candy so stop believing that it’s an appropriate way to quench your thirst. In fact, a 20-ounce bottle of Coca-Cola Classic contains 65 grams of sugar, or the equivalent of 5 Little Debbie Swiss Rolls.
So, what should we all be drinking? Water!
Put a lemon or berries in it to make it more palatable for you and your children, but water is really the best option. Now, I understand it’s the holidays, so you’re bound to indulge a little, but before you grab for that 2-liter, think about whether you’d rather have your dessert in a glass or on a plate.
Time is often not very kind to us. As we get older, we typically feel it, and even more unfortunately, we often times look it.
As many of us know from woeful experience, our skin changes as the years advance, resulting in wrinkles, crows feet and sagging. But there might be some good news. Scientists recently discovered that exercise may actually stop skin from aging so severely.
When our skin looks “older,” what’s actually happening is a thickening of the outer layer of skin, called the stratum corneum. Composed mostly of dead skin cells and some collagen, this outer layer gets drier, flakier and denser with age. At the same time the layer underneath begins to thin, losing its elasticity, which translates into a saggier appearance.
But in the study, Canadian researchers found that subjects who frequently exercised had the opposite effect: they had a thinner outer layer and thicker inner layer, compared to those who did not frequently exercise. Those fitter subjects, who were all over age 40, had the skin of someone a decade younger.
Skin samples were tested from areas that were normally underneath clothing so that sun exposure wouldn’t be a factor.
Also, to remove any notion that genetics played a roll, the researchers set aside at random two groups of 65-year-olds and had one group exercise twice a week by jogging or cycling for 30 minutes for three months, while the other group did nothing. And wouldn’t you know it, the skin on the exercised group looked half their age. Exercise really is good for everything!
Tips for a Thin(ner) Thanksgiving
Any holiday where the focus is the food is a good holiday in my book. Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy…I just drooled on my keyboard. And since it only comes around one day a year, why not indulge a little? Clear your plate? Get seconds? Get thirds? Have TWO pieces of pecan pie? Well, you and I both know the reason: Because nothing is worse than going back to work wearing pants that are a little more snug than you remember.
The average American eats between 3,000 and 5,000 calories on Thanksgiving Day—about two days worth! And while just one big meal won’t make you fat (any more than one salad dinner will make you skinny), wouldn’t it be nice to spend the holiday not hating yourself? Here’s some tips that can help you feel good both on Thanksgiving and for days after.
Start with a calorie deficit.
If you don’t regularly exercise, Thanksgiving morning may be the perfect day to start. Burning a few extra calories right away will give you a fighting chance for when you’re stuffing yourself full of cheesy potatoes and green bean casseroles.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
