The tradition of making New Year’s resolutions started with the Babylonians 4000 years ago. The Babylonian New Year was at the planting of new crops, and the most common resolution was to return borrowed farm equipment.
Today, not many of us make that resolution, but there is something about the turning of the New Year that makes it a logical time for a fresh start. Today our most common resolutions revolve around health issues such as losing weight, exercising more, or eating better.
At Smiles Nambour we’d like to remind you that dental health resolutions are also great for general, and recommend the following resolutions for your new year.
Things to be Resolute About
- Schedule dentist visits. Sometimes it is easy to put off dental care – other important things arise in your life, you need to save money, sometimes you just forget. But don’t! Your dentist helps you keep your teeth clean, gums healthy, and smile bright.
