Do you find that dental hygiene feels stressful? Do you wonder why it doesn’t just feel like second nature or at least like a neutral experience? To make the most of your dental care in your own bathroom, we encourage you to take some ideas to heart. They can help you transition from feeling stressed to feeling completely calm about your brushing and flossing.
Make Sure You’re Prepared
Do you go to brush your teeth and realize that your toothbrush is old and needs to be replaced? Do you realize that your toothpaste is out? Maybe you bring your dental hygiene products to work with you and you tend to accidentally leave them there. Plan ahead to make sure you’re stocked up on what you need (and perhaps buy a separate set for work). That way, you can brush and floss without giving yourself a headache.
Enjoy The Time You Spend
Find ways to enjoy your time spent flossing and brushing. Pop your earbuds in and listen to music, for instance! If you’re enjoying the two minutes you spend brushing and the couple minutes you spend flossing, the time will fly! (Just make sure you’re not getting distracted).
Like What You Use
Are you brushing with mint flavored toothpaste even though you really abhor the flavor? Do you use string floss even though you much prefer tape? When you’re unhappy with your dental hygiene products, you’re going to feel unhappy with the experience. Provide yourself with products you enjoy using and you will find that brushing and flossing feel a whole lot more relaxing!
