Generational Habits

18/9/2023

Generational habits are like the stories passed down through our families, connecting us to our roots and shaping the way we navigate life. They're the little rituals and routines that we inherit from our parents and grandparents, carrying their wisdom and quirks into our own journeys and guiding our behaviours.

The Pot Roast

A pastor once told a story about his wife. His wife would cut the pot roast in two, and cook it in two pots. One day he asked why she cooked it that way, and she explained that that's how her mum did it.

Intrigued, he called his mother-in-law and asked why she cooked the pot roast that way. She gave the same answer, "it was how my mother did it".

Now very curious, he called his grandmother-in-law and asked her the same question, where she responded "because I never had a pot big enough".

You see, we mirror the actions and behaviours of our parents, sometimes unintentionally. Their influence runs deep, as we absorb their values, habits, and even their mannerisms throughout our lives.

Wetting The Toothbrush

Who taught you to wet the toothpaste and toothbrush before placing it in your mouth? Who are you mirroring? You probably don't even realise you're doing it each time you brush your teeth.

It turns out, you probably shouldn't wet your toothpaste before brushing, and here's why:

1. Dilution of Hydroxyapatite:

Peg Paste contains hydroxyapatite, a mineral known for its remineralising, tooth-strengthening properties. When you wet your toothbrush before applying toothpaste, you risk diluting the hydroxyapatite concentration in the toothpaste. Hydroxyapatite is most effective in its undiluted form.

2. Reduced Abrasion:

Peg Paste contains abrasive particles that help remove plaque and stains from your teeth. When you wet your toothbrush first, you can unintentionally soften these abrasive particles, reducing their effectiveness in cleaning your teeth. Dry toothpaste provides better abrasion and cleaning power.

3. Excessive Foam:

Wetting your toothbrush before brushing can result in toothpaste foaming too quickly. As the mouth fills with foam, we are triggered to spit it out, which can result in us finishing our thorough brushing prematurely. Use dry toothpaste, brush for at least two minutes, then spit - don't rinse.

Happy roasting, happy brushing.
