I want to brush my teeth before I go to bed. Yeah I know GROSS, she doesn’t brush her teeth, think of all those germs, bad breath, cavities!
But you know not brushing my teeth is just a symptom of my problem. I could make myself reminders, set an alarm on my phone, or do a unit study on dental care but I have not addressed the reason why I am not brushing my teeth.
If you look at my crazy day of schooling, working and caring for my family by the time night comes I have pushed myself to the limit and find myself passed out late in the evening and not an ounce of energy to get up and brush my teeth.
I need rest; I need to leave myself that ounce of energy to take care of me. Really I need to stop working late into the evening.
I have joined the Inspired to Action, Hello Mornings on-line community. I know what does a morning group have to do with my nightly neglect, well if I plan to get up early; I have to plan to go to sleep! I will have to stop pushing myself to get one more thing completed on that never ending ‘to do list.’
