It’s strange how as soon as some people hit their mid-twenties, their age becomes something of an embarrassment! People assume that since the ‘student’ years are over, life is bound to become a drag! If you agree with this train of thought – we’re here to prove you wrong.
Hitting your thirties can be an amazing thing, after all, age is just a number! Don’t believe us? Read on…

Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

Do you think that if you took better care of your health you could feel better and increase your productivity? It’s easy to put off healthy living habits, but you don’t have to wait for New Years to start planning a healthier lifestyle. If you feel that you need to make improvements to your lifestyle for your health, you’re not alone. Taking time to reevaluate our lifestyles is part of life!

Although it’s hard to get out of old habits, a healthy lifestyle can give you more energy, improved mental health, and can increase your chances of defeating illnesses.

Increase Your Physical Activity:

The body is truly the temple of the soul, and you don’t want that temple to fall apart! Exercise is a great way to stimulate your health and helps improve longevity and overall health.

Eat Healthy At Least 90% Of The Time:

Adding fruits and vegetables is a perfect foundation for starting a healthy routine. Leafy vegetables and fruits contain plentiful amounts of nutrients that help boost your immune system and fight off disease causing toxins.

Get Enough Sleep:

Life has a habit of getting busy, but if you never make time for sleep, your healthy lifestyle goals could suffer. So, Aim to get between seven and nine hours of sleep per night, and try to find the ideal amount of sleep for your body.

Keep A Positive Attitude

Most people can attest to the reality that they feel better mentally and physically when they have a good day or have positive experiences. Things like laughter and smiling can make you feel better long after the activity that first made us happy, which may make you wonder whether a positive attitude affects a person’s overall health. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.

Try to be strong and face life’s difficulties as challenges and not as problems; respond accordingly with action, rather than with fear, self-pity, inferiority or blame. Replace the word ‘PROBLEM’ in your dictionary with the word ‘CHALLENGE’.

Make Goals For The Future:

To help your dreams for the future become a reality, you need to set short & long term goals. To provide steady fuel for your energy, create a list of long term goals to be accomplished in life time & break them into several interim short term goals to help you chart your progress everyday. As you would see yourself progressing, you would be motivated towards your goals even more.

Exercise Your Mind:

Brain exercises help your mental health and fitness in the same way your body benefits from physical exercise. And just as doing a variety of physical exercises like aerobics, strength training, and stretching is more beneficial than doing just one, so it is with doing different kinds of brain exercises too. Do some mental training every day by playing puzzles involving numbers, sequences, and wordplay.

Be Thankful:

There is good reason to believe that people who cultivate thankfulness tend to be happier and healthier than those who don’t. Thankful people appreciate what they have instead of obsessing over what they lack. They express gratitude to others, and often receive more gratitude in return as a result. While some people may naturally be more thankful, don’t assume that you cannot nurture a more thankful perspective in your own life.

Maintain A Youthful Appearance

Nearly half of all adults are not happy with their teeth. Now that your kids are self-sufficient, it’s time to invest in yourself. Cosmetic dentistry presents a reasonable, affordable, and attractive option. With technological improvements in dentistry, there’s no need to look older than you feel. Laser whitening, cosmetic bonding, crowns, and veneers, have made it possible for aging teeth to look young again.

What Could Hold You Back from Considering Cosmetic Dentistry?

Aversion To Dentistry :
Let’s be honest: How many people really enjoy going to the dentist? Many people grumble about their preventive and restorative dental care appointments – it’s a common response among the community.
Several factors can trigger heightened anxiety, and an individual can experience one or more of these factors simultaneously. Many of these stressors can be found in a dental office. These include the smells of dental compounds (especially strong adored medicaments like eugenol and bleach), seeing dental instruments (especially needles and forcepts) and hearing the tools of the dental office (such as the drill). Patients can associate these sensory responses to previous dental experiences, specifically if those experiences were negative and left a strong impression earlier in life.

Putting off your dental visit to Dr. Saj Jivraj in Oxnard, Ventura, CA because of fear or anxiety only increases the potential for tooth decay or gum problems. At our office, Dr. Jivraj and our team in Oxnard, CA offer solutions that allow you to relax, without any pain, so you can keep your mouth healthy. Our solutions can help with many different anxiety issues for both adults and children.

Nitrous oxide is an excellent choice for most patients when it comes to sedation dentistry. Sometimes referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide can be regulated to provide you with the amount of sedation you need. When used before a local anesthetic, the injection will not be uncomfortable and you should not notice any pain during your procedure.

Concerns About Cost:

Searching for information about the cost of dentistry online can force you to wade through some pretty vague information. Dentists rarely publish the prices of their services on their websites.

  • Yes, there are many factors that will influence how much your dental treatment will cost.
  • No, most dentists cannot estimate the cost of your treatment without first meeting with you and evaluating your oral health.

It Won’t Make A Difference:

You may be surprised to learn that fixing your bite and replacing missing teeth with implant-supported dentures can not only improve your oral health and quality of life but also change your profile and give you a non-surgical face lift! Only your cosmetic dentist can tell you for sure. Isn’t it worth it to find out?
