-- Make your nighttime health routines a priority. Wash your face, remove
contacts if you wear them, and brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash
as part of a complete oral care regimen. It's especially important to
look after your oral health at night because your mouth is vulnerable
to germs when you sleep. Rinsing for just 30 seconds with a mouthwash
such as LISTERINE(R) Antiseptic offers 12 hours of protection against
plaque and gingivitis germs.
-- Restore and replenish with a good night of sleep. Nighttime is the
perfect opportunity to improve healthy rituals and routines. Make eight
hours of sleep a goal in order to give your body the time it needs to
restore and replenish.
-- Reflect on a positive moment that happened that day or visualize
something great that can happen tomorrow. Always end your night on a
