Tips For Practicing Self-Care In The Morning | Endodontics

Here are some tips to have a good morning every morning. Why are endodontists concerned with your morning self-care routine? A good morning routine includes a good dental hygiene routine. When you’ve got your morning organized, you’ll be more likely to remember and brush your teeth.  

Give yourself plenty of time.

It’s a broken record on every self-care blog you can find; start your day earlier. Make more time for yourself and start your day off on the right foot. The trick is to not take it too seriously. Step one is to be kind to yourself on those days you don’t get up on time. From there you can make progress.

The best way to shift your sleep schedule is to only shift fifteen minutes at a time. Every morning wake up fifteen minutes earlier than you did the morning before. Do this until you are at your goal.

What should you do with this extra time? Start the day out on the right foot. What makes you feel good? Experts recommend spending some time outdoors, working out, stretching, writing in a journal, or meditating.

Be selective on which products you use.

Do you enjoy brushing your teeth? If the goal is to spend the morning doing things you enjoy, you should make your dental hygiene routine enjoyable. Be selective on what kinds of toothbrushes and toothpastes you use. Get something you like. Just make sure it is also approved by the American Dental Association®.

For many people, dental hygiene routines are often accompanied by hair care and skin care.  Carefully choose the products you put on your skin and in your hair. Your future self will thank you for it.

The scent is everything. Our sense of smell triggers our memory more than our other senses. Choose products with a scent you enjoy. If you wake up to a bad-smelling product, you could be sabotaging your day with a bad mood and not even realize it.

Get moving.

The morning is not a time for negative thoughts. So why on earth would experts recommend exercise?  If you love working out in the morning, great! If not, there is still hope.

The key is to wake up your whole body. You can stretch or use a foam roller to loosen up your muscles. Use this time to focus on yourself. Everyone needs a little me-time.

Put a routine together that you like. Be realistic. When you wake up, stretch right away. Find some stretches you can do in bed. There are many! It might be a small movement, but it could make all the difference to your day.

Don’t forget to drink water! You’ve been without water for several hours. Your body needs some hydration. Also, water wakes up your digestive system.
