Off To The Dentist

So for my lunch break today I have to go to the dentist and get some x-rays and my teeth cleaned.  Routine checkup and cleaning twice a year but its funny how I dread just losing an hour of my day to attend to what is actually an important health item.  I actually am like “great, I can’t believe I have to lose an hour” like what is more important than keeping your teeth healthy and clean to avoid problems later?  I find that many people get so busy with work and home, that they come to hate or dread just taking a few hours to take care of their health, have a checkup, physical or in my case today dental checkup and cleaning.

We are all busy and that is a fact of life, but try not to be so harsh on taking a break now and again to keep yourself checked out, well and carve out some time to get checked out.  Better to get a clean bill of health now than have a problem discovered a year later that could have been avoided early.

So I breath in and exhale, one hour out of my day sitting in a dental chair isn’t going to kill me.  I will just sit back, relax and try not to think about all of the things I could be doing at work, or blogging at home, or an extra hour I could spend hanging around the house with my wife at the same time.
