I’ve been spending a lot of time at the dentist lately, and to be honest, it hasn’t been fun!
I love my boys’ beautiful smiles, and I want their teeth to stay healthy. It can be a battle, though! We’re often rushing out the door in the morning, and at night, it’s the boys dragging their feet and doing everything But getting ready for bed. Henry is convinced waving the toothbrush in the general direction of his teeth should be plenty.
With all that in mind, I figured we would be the perfect family to take on the Listerine 21 Day Challenge and establish some better habits together!
It’s a really cool program that encourages you to improve your family’s oral health, and gives you the chance to work on other new, healthy habits-a little bit at a time for 21 days.
We’re starting by kicking up our oral health care routine. I was shocked to learn that brushing alone leaves behind 75% of the germs on our teeth. Yikes, right?
Over here we’ve committed to a brushing, flossing, and rinsing routine twice a day, every day. By adding a rinse with Listerine we’ll be reaching nearly 100% of our mouths. Listerine Antiseptic is the world’s number one dentist-recommended brand of over-the-counter antimicrobial mouthwash, and it carries the ADA seal of acceptance. Just swish for 30 seconds twice a day, and you’ll have 5 times healthier gums in just 2 weeks! My teeth feel cleaner already!
When you sign up to participate in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge you also get to pick an expert to help you tackle another healthy habit! Listerine has teamed up with experts in fitness, life coaching, nutrition, and home organization. I’m going to get personalized tips from organization guru Peter Wash (Love him)! You can choose to get tips and other cool support to help you stick with your goals, and just for participating you’ll have a chance to win one of a bunch of awesome, DAILY prizes, including a Fitbit, a 100.00 Container STore Gift Card, or an Amazon Fire TV! For every 7 days you swish, you’ll be entered into one of the sweepstakes drawings for a grand prize. Getting prizes for making healthy changes? That is officially a win-win! You can find Listerine products at Walgreens-Did you notice the rinse is available with Frozen graphics? Sing it with me, “Do you want to clean your teeth now….?”
Believe me, I know how hard it can be to stick to new, healthy habits, so I would LOVE to have you join me and my family on this journey. I’ll be reporting on how we’re doing, and I’d love to hear about how it’s going at your house, too! We’ve got this!
