WFMW ~ Don't Laugh!



This is my first Works For Me Wednesday. I am all about making life easy and simple so I have a few things to contribute to this blog carnival. But last night I was thinking about one in particular, so I decided to join in today.

Friends, we are not kids any more. We can't take our health for granted, not even the little things. And as you have probably been told by your dental hygienist, flossing is one of those important little things. It's not only important for your dental health, but your overall health as well. Gum disease is related to heart disease!

BUT, it's hard to remember to floss, for me anyway. I'm always rushing and don't take time for flossing.

So here's my little WFMW tip. I keep my floss in the shower. Then, while I'm conditioning my hair, I floss. Then when I get out, I brush my teeth, and I'm on my way. Seeing the floss in there reminds me to do it, and that way it gets done every day.

So take care of your gums & heart, my friends!

That's a great idea! I'm always forgetting to floss so that would help for it to be "in sight, in mind". Thansk for the tip.

Flossing is important.

That is an excellent idea!
Why is it that whenever anyone mentions floss I immediately think of Julia Roberts saying "You shouldn't ignore your gums" haha
