A big thanks to Smile Brilliant for sponsoring today’s post and helping me focus on the importance of self care!
It seems like every season of my life gets busier and busier. I’ll have insane months and wonder how I’ll ever survive but then I do and another insane month comes along. March is one of those months for me. I am attending a blog conference, shooting two weddings and hosting a bridal shower for my best friend…all in the short four weeks of March. Before I know it, I’ll blink and April will be here. With all of that craziness, I’ve learned how important it is to make sure I’m caring for myself amidst the lack of extra time. It’s so easy to allow caring for yourself to fall to the back burner, but taking the extra time for yourself during busy seasons is extremely important.
One of the things I have always tried to take great care of is my teeth. I’ve been lucky to have relatively healthy teeth so far but I know how important it is to care for them. I first whitened my teeth for our wedding a few years ago, but the thing about whitening is it has to be a continued process because as the commercials have told us, if you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing.
Smile Brilliant provided me with an at home kit which makes it SO convenient to get a professional whitening experience at home. The coolest part of the experience is getting to make your own custom fit trays in the comfort of your home. You make the trays at your convenience, ship them back and then you receive your own custom trays and teeth mold a few days later! No making an appointment at the dentist, sitting in the waiting room, or having impression gel all over your face.
Whitening your teeth doesn’t mean you will have perfectly bright white teeth but it will remove unwanted staining from dark soft drinks, food and coffee. Removing unwanted stains will give you confidence to show off your gorgeous smile!
Ever since high school I’ve had a knack for filling my schedule to the brim. There were a few months after graduating from college that I had some downtime but it drove me insane, so that’s what led me to start working on this blog more. Because I’m very busy natured, it’s difficult for me to remember to set aside time for myself especially things that can seem unnecessary. I’m not the type to get my nails done or my hair even, so little things like taking care of my teeth and making sure they’re in top shape is hugely important to me. Whitening your teeth can usually be done over night so you really don’t lose any time from doing it, which is great!
Taking care of your self is extremely important year round but it’s especially important to remember during those crazy months. Plan a bubble bath night or a manicure or even just ordering your favorite take out food for a perfect night in. In the midst of crazy seasons, take time to enjoy you!
