• Write down the day’s most important task.

Doing the most important (or most dreaded) task first thing in the morning gives you a feeling of accomplishment and clears your mind for the rest of the day.

• Make your bed.

Starting your day by finishing something and doing it well provides a small self-esteem boost early on. And when you come home tired from a long day at work, there will be nothing between you and a good night’s sleep.

• Express gratitude!

Even if you are feeling down in the dumps, there is a lot to be grateful for! This is easy to do and doesn’t need to cast anything. Find it and express it.

• Walk more.

Take the stairs, walk while on the phone, park further from the store than usual – there are many simple ways to incorporate more walking into your life.

• Dress slightly better than the occasion calls for.

You’ll feel good about yourself and stand out!

• Brush your teeth and floss!!

Brushing and flossing your teeth not only prevents gingivitis and tooth decay, but it can also save your life!

The American Dental Association recommends you brush twice a day for two minutes and floss once a day. If you don’t, you could be putting yourself at greater risk for developing dementia, diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer, among other things.

• Smile at yourself in the mirror.

At Dillon Family Dentistry, we love smiles! One study showed that holding a ten second smile in the mirror causes an instant mood boost! And this actually comes across in your voice as well.

If you place a mirror next to your phone and smile into right before you answer a call, they found that people can actually tell the difference in your voice. What a difference that could make on someone’s day with just doing that simple trick!

If you, or someone you know doesn’t fell comfortable smiling—come or send them into Dillon Family Dentistry. Everyone deserves the luxury of a beautiful, confident smile to share and feel their happiness! We are masters of all of the techniques from cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers and crowns, Invisalign or just a great teeth whitening and can do it painlessly in a friendly, personable environment.
