This is the fourth post in the series of Daily Habits, which is about a listing of useful habits that should be a part of a productive person’s daily routine. To read, you can start here.
It is common wisdom to brush your teeth before going to bed. Brushing the teeth thrice a day is much better but it is critically important at bedtime. In addition, floss helps as well. It removes the food particles between your teeth and corners where brush cannot reach.
There are numerous benefits of making it a habit such as a bright smile, fresh breath and prevention of tooth loss and dental problems. The key point to remember is that anything worth achieving through consistent struggle can only be done in proper health because healthy people find more energy to accomplish tasks. Maintaining healthy teeth is one of the gateways to maintain a great overall health.
Always remember what Earl Nightingale said in The Strangest Secret:
…. It’s free. And things that are given to us for nothing, we place little value on. Things that we pay money for, we value.
The paradox is that exactly the reverse is true. Everything that’s really worthwhile in life came to us free and our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our ambitions, our intelligence, our love of family and children and friends and country. All these priceless possessions are free.
But the things that cost us money are actually very cheap and can be replaced at any time. A good man can be completely wiped out and make another fortune. He can do that several times. Even if our home burns down, we can rebuild it. But the things we got for nothing, we can never replace.
Remember, when it comes to maintenance of quality stuff, it is always the little things that matter.
