Basic Brushing Tip #2

How to Make Brushing 2X Daily a Habit

Now how do we get you to brush 2X daily? It is the same with changing any habit and will not be easy at first. It will require a conscious commitment to doing it 2X a day for at least 2 weeks. 

How I learned to do it was I posted a note on my bathroom mirror and crossed off each time I brushed. Seeing the note right in front of you will remind you to do it. So if you commit to doing it for 2 weeks at a minimum, then you will be able to get into the habit. You will need to do it even if you are tired and just want to go to bed. No excuses. Just try it and see what happens. You should find that after 2 weeks you will automatically just start doing it without thinking. 

Happy Brushing!

Here is a link for a brushing schedule you can use. It is the same one I used to get into the brushing habit.
