Brush before you sleep at night- General recommendation is to brush at least twice a day. Still, many of us continue to neglect brushing our teeth at night. But, brushing before bed gets rid of the germs and plaque that accumulate throughout the day.
Brush properly-Poor brushing your teeth is almost as bad as not brushing at all. Take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions to remove plaque. Unremoved plaque can harden, leading to calculus buildup and gingivitis (early gum disease).
Clean your Tongue-Plaque can also build up on your tongue. Not only can this lead to bad mouth odor, but it can lead to other oral health problems. It is recommended to gently brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth.
Drink more water -Water continues to be the best beverage for your overall health — including oral health. This can help wash out some of the negative effects of sticky and acidic foods and beverages in between brushes.
Eat lots of crunchy vegetables-Eating fresh, crunchy vegetables and fruits not only contains more healthy fiber, but it’s also the best choice for your teeth and are natural teeth cleansers.
Good Habits for healthy metabolism
Stress- It is a widely known fact that stress is a number one cause to a large number of diseases. According to a study conducted by the researches at the Ohio State University, stress is in direct correlation decline in metabolism speed. It is advisable to have a daily habit to find a quiet place and relax for at least fifteen minutes by doing deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation.

An optimal amount of water intake for an adult would be eight glasses of water per day. Additionally, it is highly advised to drink one glass of water before a meal, as water consumption before the meal helps enhance your metabolism speed.
Eat often-Eating can actually boost your metabolism. It is recommended to eat smaller/lesser meals more frequently. Experts suggest, you should have five small meals every three hours. Also, eating at the same time every day, and avoiding late dinners helps in boosting metabolism
Good Sleep-Irregular sleeping habits can harm your metabolism causing stress and craving for sugar and bad carbs. Quality sleep requires sleeping in a well aired room without artificial light for at least eight hours. To keep your metabolism from slowing down you should try to go to bed at the same time and wake up early each day
Increase your iron levels-Iron helps to transform blood sugar into energy that fuels the muscles in the human body. Including foods rich in iron such as fish, red meat and beans into your daily eating regiment, can help boost your metabolism during physical activity.
