We all tend to use lack of time as an excuse to get out of something we don’t want to do.
Does this scenario sound familiar?
Significant other: “Did you drop my dress shirts off at the dry cleaners?”
You: “Oh, honey. I’m sorry! I’ve been so busy…I guess I just ran out of time.”
You watched a “House Hunters” marathon on HGTV, but you didn’t have “time” to run a silly errand? Odds are you could have dropped off that dry cleaning.
Watching TV. Spending time on social media. Playing with your smart phone. Think about how much extra time you make for the things you want to do.
So, the next time you’re in a hurry and don’t think you have “time” for your oral health, remember this: It only takes a few minutes, twice a day. Plus, unlike reality television, brushing and flossing actually provide lifelong benefits. To kill 2 birds with 1 stone, brush during the commercial break.
