Over the past few months my family and I have been making gradual changes to improve our health and wellness. We started small with simply decreasing the amount of times we eat out every month, then I started making healthy substitutions in the recipes that we love. I’m a firm believer that “slow and steady wins the race”. Oftentimes, we try to make a lot of big changes at once, and then they fall through because it becomes too overwhelming.
One of the small goals I’ve been working on is having healthier gums and teeth. We just had our regular family cleaning, and can I just say… I hate to floss! Please tell me I’m not alone! Even the hygienist hates flossing my teeth though, so I don’t feel too guilty about it. They are just so close together, that it takes a lot of effort to do it. My teeth are in really great shape, despite my lack of flossing, but I know I should be doing better. We only get one set of adult teeth, and I’d really like to keep them!
This is actually the brand of toothpaste that we use on a regular basis. New Colgate Total® Daily Repair™ toothpaste helps reverse early tooth and gum damage for better oral health. It helps prevent gingivitis and plaque build up, remineralizes enamel to strengthen teeth and help prevent cavities, and fights bad breath and whitens teeth. My dentist mentioned that pregnancy can cause changes that cause you to have temporary gingivitis. So since I just had a baby a few months ago, I’m hoping that using New Colgate Total® Daily Repair™ toothpaste can help repair some of that damage.
To keep me focused and making goals, I created this printable. Every month I can set a large goal and then think of smaller, weekly goals that will help me achieve the larger one. This month’s goal… healthier gums and teeth! The chart will work for any goal that you have. It’s a nice visual reminder to help me stay focused on making small steps for better health. Print one out for yourself by downloading the file here.
Pop the printable into a sheet protector, and you can use dry-erase markers on it. Just cut the side off that has the hole punches, so it doesn’t look like it belongs in a binder. Hang it on the fridge or the bathroom mirror to remind you of your goals.
You can set a new goal every month, try again if you don’t quite make it, or revisit something that you need to work on more. That’s the beauty of making it erasable! You can constantly be changing it up.
