Habits of Successful People

Posted on

Greetings on this beautiful November morning, I read an interesting article in The Globe and Mail yesterday called “Seven Great Habits of the Most Successful People” and thought how interesting.

The article stated that habits determine 95% of a person’s behaviour, and its people’s behaviour that causes them to be successful. Easy enough….right?

One of the habits that successful people maintain is that they are health conscious and that includes maintaining a healthy smile. So I thought I would write a little about how you can incorporate a few small habits to your daily routine to reap the benefits of a healthy smile and become healthier.

  • Brush your teeth only using a soft toothbrush – hard bristles cause your gum tissue to recede and this can cause your teeth to become more sensitive
  • Brush your teeth three times a day
  • Brush your teeth after your breakfast
  • Brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time
  • Floss your teeth, if you find flossing difficult use tools such as the air flosser, flossing sticks, etc.
  • Rinse your mouth after you brush your teeth, with your toothpaste left over in your mouth after your brushing, mouth wash, a mouth rinsing agent, etc.
  • If you are out at a party or dinner and cannot brush your teeth after dessert, eat a slice of cheese or a slice of apple, these foods lower the acidity in your mouth after sweets.

I hope you find these tips helpful and I hope you can incorporate them into your daily routine.

In case you are wondering what the seven great habits are:

  1. They are Goal Oriented
  2. They are Results Driven
  3. They are Action Oriented
  4. They are People Oriented
  5. They are Health Conscious
  6. They are Honest
  7. They are Delf-Disciplined
