Snacks That Are Better for Your Teeth

When we snack, we probably think about calories, blood sugar, etc.; but dentists tell us we should also be thinking about our teeth.

Foods made with white flour and/or sugar can feed the bacteria in our mouths and could cause problems. Nuts, healthy meats or non-sugary beverages might be a better choice.

Having Trouble Sticking to Your Resolution? Try This

This is about the time in January when it’s getting a little harder to keep that resolution. That burst of energy and willpower you had at the start of the year has started to wane as the daily routine of life lures you back into bad habits.

Here’s a couple of tips to keep your fitness regime on track:

  • Set smaller goals. Instead of walking/jogging that 3 miles a day you promised yourself, try maybe starting with a shorter distance – like a half-mile. Then, once that becomes part of your regular routine, gradually up the distance, little by little, until you reach your target.
  • Have fun. Don’t punish yourself if you miss a day. Make sure whatever exercise you pick (walking, racquetball, etc.) is something you actually enjoy doing. Sticking with it will be much easier.
  • Treat yourself. When you reach a goal or even complete 5 consecutive days of accomplished activity, give yourself a present, maybe some ice cream or a book you’ve been wanting to add to your library. Positive reinforcement works.
  • Track your progress. Whether you keep an old school journal that you write, a spreadsheet on your computer on an app for your ell phone, keep track of things helps keep you focused and committed!
