I say this guide is for kids but as every single parent knows this is also a great guide for parents. In earlier posts I talked about establishing a morning routine for my daughter and this is part of that routine. When I was approached by our friends at Listerine about being part of their I was already in the midst of trying to get into a routine. Little did I know that teaching my daughter to use an oral rinse would be what not only brings us together but has done wonders in helping my daughter stick to a morning and bedtime routine as well as give us healthier teeth and gums.
Listerine gave us a Walgreen’s Gift Card where we were able to pick up a few things to implement this oral care routine. Now when my daughter sees the familiar teal color products and the name Listerine she associates it with her teeth. Like most single parents it can be a big challenge to keep my gums healthy.
I have always had gingivitis and so I want to take steps to further prevent that. My daughter has the most beautiful smile in the world and I want to keep it that way. While I use a mouth rinse on my way out the door I don’t think I brush long enough or really pay attention. I also believe that you shouldn’t keep old decaying food in your mouth since you don’t want those germs anywhere in your body.
When it comes to creating a great morning routine the nighttime routine plays a part in that. I just had a performance review and my boss told me that I seemed much more focused at work. I told him I changed up my morning routine. See the difference wasn’t noticeable to me but it was noticeable to others. I was less stressed because my daughter took ownership of her own routine so that I could take care of what I needed to make it out on time. I had more confidence at work because I was focused. Having Listerine pocketpaks and flossing helps me be confident on dates and in meetings where I need to present to others.
Walgreens has helped with this routine as I can purchase healthy snacks, vitamins and more including wellness products, like LISTERINE®!
The 21 Day Challenge
In this challenge I will commit to brushing and rinsing twice a day. I started this last week and it’s my favorite part of the day and night. I also chose to organize my house. I started doing this two weeks ago and I got rid of the distracting negative boyfriend and began rearranging the furniture.
- When I signed up I watched videos from life coach Valorie Burton and I chose to follow organizational expert Peter Walsh where I receive daily personalized emails with tips, video content and guidance establish good habits in your chosen area.
- By signing up for the challenge and sticking with your rinsing routine, you will have a daily opportunity to instantly win exciting prizes, including a Fitbit®, a $100 Container Store® Gift Card or an Amazon Fire TV! For every seven consecutive days you swish, you’ll be entered into one of the sweepstakes drawings for a grand prize.
