I am blessed to have great teeth. Straight and strong. No cavities! One crown (my inner princess loves that!).
As I get older, I realize how much I've taken ALL of my body parts for granted.
Of course, my body reminds me of that on a more regular basis now - thankfully.
And I know what to do, but I have a hard time maintaining GOOD habits! What is up with that?
Although my teeth are great, they seemed to not ever get very white.
Then one day, I happened upon a new piece of information - Fluoride can discolor some peoples teeth (not to mention it's actually quite toxic!)! Ah ha!
Now that I've switched to Fluoride -free toothpaste, I am noticing less discoloration.
What cracks me up about myself is that I can waste hours at a time doing nothing worthwhile, but to spend the full 2 minutes brushing my teeth (my clever toothbrush has a timer) is nearly impossible! Seems like forever.
So I'm reframing it. It's a convenient time for a 2 minute meditation - another good habit I'd like to add in.
I tried it- and it only seemed like half of forever. Noticing my breathing, letting go of thoughts, brushing my teeth...
I am so grateful for my wonderful, beautiful, healthy teeth. I'm excited to give them (and me) the gift of 2 minute meditations!
