The idea of “self-care” has been transformed over the years. What used to be a night to yourself turned into shopping sprees and take-out. While there’s nothing wrong with any of those things, it can be easy to lose sight of what actually helps you feel and be better. Self-care should be something that puts energy into your personal bank for the things you love most.
At its core, taking care of your hygiene and your health is the ultimate form of self-care. While it takes time out of your day that could be dedicated to more fun or lucrative activities, it’s time you’re spending on yourself. It’s time you’re investing in your well-being. And it’s worth every second.
If you’re busy enough that you find it difficult to give your teeth the red-carpet treatment they deserve, we’ve got some tips that might make it easier to keep them glowing.
Build Your Hygiene Into an Existing Routine
Everyone’s got that one thing they’re not willing to give up. For many, it’s their daily shower. If you’re the type of person who will miss an appointment rather than a shower, brush your teeth while you’re there! No one will judge you.
Are you serious about a healthy diet? Do you always pack your lunch? Then, toss in a floss pick with your veggie bag. It serves as a visual reminder, and it only adds an extra thirty seconds into a pretty set-in-stone part of your day.
Think about the habits that aren’t in any danger of going away. Brainstorm some ways that you can fit your toothbrush, toothpaste, or mouthwash in, and it won’t seem like such a burden.
Find Accessible Professionals
Even people who take great care of their teeth need the dentist. Your bi-annual dental cleanings and checkups will make it so that you don’t have to work so hard in the long run. We clean and strengthen your teeth with a fluoride treatment, and as a result, you’re here less often for fillings and crowns.
If it’s hard for you to fit in a dentist appointment, you may just be looking in the wrong place for your dentist. Find someone with a schedule that accommodates you, who allows online scheduling, and who takes emergency appointments.
