Brushing can get quite monotonous, and really boring some of the time. However, it shouldn't be. It needs to be something you pay attention to each time you do it.
If you get bored, you won't be spending as much time as you should to get your whole mouth clean. Take the time to find ways of making it fun for you, as you are far more likely to have optimal oral health if you make brushing a priority that you look forward to.
What Can Be Done to Make Brushing More Fun?
One way of making brushing more fun is by changing out your toothbrush. Use one with a bright color, a different design, or even switch back and forth between a standard and an electric toothbrush. Just make it different each day so that you look forward to what you do that day.
Another way of making brushing more fun is by changing up which flavor of toothpaste you use. You can go from mint one day to strawberry another. There are many flavors out there, so pick one that makes you happy. Even if you go out and get a sampler pack, you are bound to find one that you like.
Dancing while brushing is another way of making brushing more fun. Plus, it helps you time out your brushing more effectively. You should be brushing for around two full minutes, so find a song that lasts about that long and dance while brushing. It's like a mini-workout at the same time.
Don't let your oral health decline because you are bored brushing. Instead, opt for ways of making brushing less boring. Figure out which method works best for you, and stick with it. That will give you the healthiest mouth possible.
