Start your day
by taking care of your body
1. Take Care Of Your Body
Your body is the biggest asset you have. Take care of it by giving it what it needs. That means, keeping it hydrated, washed and nourished.
As Virginia Beach dentists, we stress the importance of taking care of your teeth. To get the most out of this time, we suggest getting a toothbrush that you like and pair it with toothpaste, floss and mouthwash that you actually enjoy using. It may seem like a small thing. But, if you use products that you like using, you’re more likely to do a better job brushing.

Spend the morning

2. Give Your Brain What It Needs
It’s a new day. And during that time, your brain will be going non-stop, fixing problems, making deadlines, driving and coordinating. By evening, your brain will have made thousands of decisions and will be, in a word, tired.
Use the morning as a time to let your brain warm up. Instead of overwhelming it with information, news and to-do lists. Read something you enjoy…preferably, something that can inspire you throughout day. Not only are you giving yourself something to look forward to, you are also developing a morning discipline that can help you become the best version of yourself.

3. Get That Workout In
We all have great intentions for getting in shape. But, we all know that things happen. Schedules change and the bosses asks us to work late. Through the natural course of life, it’s very easy to make reasons to not exercise.
But, as was mentioned earlier, your body is your biggest asset. By using the morning to get your workout in, not only will you be taking care of your body, but you will feel better, think better and have more energy. There are so many benefits to exercising, especially in the morning, that this one will put a big smile on your face.

4: Eat Something Healthy
Make sure your body has the fuel it needs to take on the day. Choose foods that will give you energy and help you achieve your health-goals. By keeping your body nourished with healthy and nutritional foods, you are powering up your body to handle the stresses of the day.
A big part of any successful morning routine is foods. And, there are a lot of breakfast food and beverages to choose from. As dentists, we recommend limiting or removing foods and drinks that can harm enamel or can cause cavities.

5. Set Your Goals
Along with brushing your teeth (and flossing), we love setting goals in the morning. As dentists, we want all our patients to wake up smiling, and for that smile to look amazing. We make that our goal everyday.
By taking time to think about and set our goals in the morning, you are focusing on what is important to you, and not letting circumstance move you away from what you want to accomplish.
To get you smiling (not just in the morning…but all day), we suggest setting your top-three goals each morning. Do this, and over time you’ll see a big difference in your life. Take it from us. We’ve become one of the area’s top dentists because we’ve been able to consistently hit our goals for professionalism, and lasting relationships with our patients.

6. Do Something Fun
So far, everything in this list has been task-oriented. For this last tip, we suggest spending at least half an hour doing something you really enjoy.
For some, this means going for a walk. For others, it may be building a model airplane. Whatever your hobby or interest may be, make sure you do one thing that you simply love to do (we hope it’s not watching TV).
One Last Thing
Your smile is very important to us. And, we hope this list has inspired you to get the most out of your mornings. Routines will look different for everyone. We just hope that you build one that puts a smile on your face and keeps your body healthy.
And…if you’re looking to make your smile look even better, let us know! We are accepting new patients. And, our friendly and experienced staff will make you feel part of the Thorogood family.
