Humans are creatures of habit. Take my bedtime routine, for example. I wash my face, brush my teeth, floss and brush again. Brushing my teeth was a natural action for me, but the flossing had to become a habit. Sure, my dentist reminded me at every visit that if I wanted healthy teeth and gums I had to floss. Regardless, it wasn’t going to stick until I made it a habit. I did this by keeping the floss right next to my tooth rush as a visual cue to trigger me to reach for it.
