Travel Doesn't Have to Hurt Oral Health!

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Awardee

Hey everyone! Are you ready for Summer?

With the "Holiday Weekends" and Summer season upon us, we reached out to our family dentist for some suggestions on how to make sure we keep up our dental hygiene while traveling. Since Taylor just got her braces off, we wanted to make sure we protected that investment! Following is the ideas that Dr. Polley and his office sent, and I thought they would be great to share with you.

 

Happy reading, and thanks for sharing! - Heidi

 

 

 

 

Ah, Holiday Weekends and Summer Vacation. With the kids out of school and the roads clear, these are the best times to get out of town. Whether you decide to take a plane or hit the road in your family-mobile, travel is a great experience for your family.But it can also be bad for your oral health. Here are some tips to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy when you travel.

Get a Checkup before You Go

Regular dental checkups give us the opportunity to identify dental problems before you notice them. This not only keeps your dental costs down, it can help avoid unpleasant symptoms of dental disease, like a foul taste in your mouth, broken teeth, or discomfort. If you’re overdue for a checkup, make sure you schedule one before you go on a trip. That way, you won’t experience any ill effects while traveling. You don’t want to spend your vacation in pain--or in a dentist’s waiting room!

​Bring All the Tools You Need

When you’re packing, don’t forget to include all the tools you need to keep your teeth clean on your vacation, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, and, yes, dental floss. Just because you’re taking a vacation from home doesn’t mean you can take a vacation from flossing. You know that oral bacteria aren’t going to be taking a break! Travel size packages for everything and covers for toothbrushes make it easy to pack everything without taking up a lot of space. Just remember to air out your toothbrushes every day--that helps keep them clean.

 

 

 

 

Make Time for Tooth brushing

As we said, you can’t take a vacation from oral care. Just bringing along the tools doesn’t help if you’re not making time to care for your teeth. Make tooth brushing a priority before everyone settles in for bed at night. If kids fall asleep because of all the exhausting full days, they can maybe skip once in awhile, but don’t let it happen too often! ​Mom and Dad, this goes for you, too! Even if you were out a little later than usual, try to get your teeth brushed and flossed every night before bed.

 

 

​Don’t Eat with Abandon

The biggest danger to your oral health is probably the way our diets change when we go on vacation. When we travel, we’re more likely to eat more sweets and spend more time sipping from acidic and sugary drinks. This is especially a problem on road trips, where a cola might seem like the perfect pick-me-up on those endless afternoons on the highway. You can protect your teeth by choosing water and other less acidic options. If you need a caffeine bump on the road, get a cup of coffee or tea--without sugar. And remember to take adequate breaks and pass over the wheel sometimes--a car accident won’t do anything good for your teeth!

Smile for the Camera!

Now that you’ve done the work of taking care of your teeth while traveling, it’s time to reap the reward! Show off those pearly whites in your pictures so that everyone will be jealous of your vacation--and your smile!

Spring Is Here!- Time To Get Organized

by Heidi Winston, REMAX Lifetime Achievement

Custom Bookshelves​​SPRING IS HERE!  There are so many things to look forward to in spring!  Baseball, flowers blooming, BBQs on the patio and Spring Cleaning.  Wait, “Spring Cleaning!” who looks forward to spring cleaning??  Well, just think how much easier spring cleaning would be if your life was organized?  One of the easiest way to organize your life is with a custom closet system.  A bonus to getting custom closets, is that it forces you to de-clutter.  Here are a few ways to conquer your clutter without getting overwhelmed and make sure next season will be filled with doing more of the things you really want to do.

 

Custom Closet

DIVIDE and CONQUER

We all know there are items in our closet we haven’t worn in years, so get rid of it!   Ease the pain by not trying to do everything at once.  Do shoes one day, long sleeve shirts another day, pants and so forth.  Create 3 piles: Trash, Giveaway/Sell and Storage.  If you haven’t worn it for the past 2 seasons, get rid of it!  Use the closet as an area for your clothes, it’s not a storage room.

 

 

 

 

 

​SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION WITH A CLOSET DESIGNER

Having the right closet organizer will help you get and stay organized.  When meeting with a KNOWLEDGABLE designer, they will measure your space, take an inventory of what you have and discuss any extras you may need/want.  If you have space in your closet, it’s great to get built in drawers.  Avoiding the trek back and forth from your closet to your bedroom to get ready will help get you where you need to be ON TIME.  There are also other great options and accessories to help make the most out of the space: Built in Hampers, Tie and Belt racks, jewelry trays, etc.  If you have a 10’ tall closet, you can utilize the height with pull downs.  Your designer will personalize it to fit your needs.

 

 

YAY! YOUR CLOSET IS INSTALLED

Just because you have an AMAZING custom closet organizer doesn’t mean the work ends here!  Dump the wire/plastic/wood hangars and upgrade to huggable hangars!  They are better for your clothing and take up less space.  Group like with like: Place all the pants together, shirts, dresses, etc.  You will probably even find yourself purging more of what you don’t wear once it’s all organized in the closet. After all, who wouldn’t want to go on a shopping spree?! 

I hope this gives you a kick start into enjoying your spring cleaning instead of dreading it!
