Battling Bad Breath

Bad breath - it can be a killer - especially from close range. It can send your friends and family ducking for cover. And it'll put an end to any chance of lip action. So here's some advice on battling fungus breath.

1. Use some common sense. If you're gonna be meeting that cute girl from science class after school - it's probably not the best idea to eat that garlic and jalapeno pizza for lunch. Try eating something a little tamer - and save the garlic breath for your mom. It might get you out of doing chores.

2. If you do have to eat that pizza - bring along some gum or breath mints. Try using sugar free stuff too - it keeps your teeth clean at the same time.

3. Brush your teeth after every meal. I know you've been told this a hundred times, but it's true. One of the biggest causes of bad breath is from not brushing and flossing regularly. And give the tongue a scrub too - bacteria loves to party there.

4. Don't smoke! It causes about 4 billion different health problems and bad breath too.

5. If you're ever in a real jam, grab a piece of parsley. That's what the ancient romans used and it can kill even the strongest onion breath.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.
