Is there something you just hate doing? Something that you do because you know you should? You know that responsible adults do this, so you should too. Is it getting your tires rotated? Going in for your annual medical checkup? Taking off your makeup before bed? Exercising? Taking your vitamins every day?
Flossing my teeth is one of those things for me. There was a time when I would floss several times a week and feel pretty virtuous about it. Three times a week! That’s more than most people, right? That means I’m taking good care of my teeth, right? When my hygienist would ask me if I floss regularly, I’d chirp right up, “Yes!” Yes, three times a week. In fact, in the week before my dental appointments I’d floss almost every day, for good measure. (By the way, that doesn’t work. They always know.)
