How I Finally Started Flossing

by Dan Walsh


I did it!

I finally developed a solid habit of flossing. It’s been two weeks and I haven’t missed a day. I hate to admit this, but flossing 14 times in a year used to be a good number for me. I made one simple change and now I am Dan, Lord of Floss. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize what was wrong.

One day it just seemed so damn obvious. I only try to floss at night. But I’m usually way too tired by the end of the day to make it happen. I knew that it would only take 60 seconds, but I just couldn’t muster the energy at the end of the day. So I tried flossing in the morning, and BAM! I floss every day now! I can’t believe it was this easy, but it was.

My dentist will be so proud.
