Here at Pearlii HQ, we still can’t believe it’s another New Year.

Of course, with the New Year comes classic chats about our New Year’s resolutions. Making resolutions is a great way to reflect on achievements and challenges from the past year, and set out meaningful intentions for the year ahead.

We asked the Pearlii Team what their New Year’s resolutions are, and since we’re all about healthy teeth, we just had to ask about their oral health goals too! Read more to find out.

Claudia (UX researcher who’s trying to become an avid reader and flosser)

This year, I want to be more consistent with doing pilates. I feel like pilates really helps to maintain my core strength and keeps me mentally refreshed. I also received a Kindle for my birthday last year, so I’m really looking forward to reading lots of interesting stories, novels and memoirs this year!

My “oral health” resolution is to get into the habit of flossing most days. After some teeth-related injuries, I’ve wound up at the dentist a few more times than I’d like to in 2022. But thankfully, through chats with the dentist, I got some really good tips on flossing such as purchasing the right floss (no two brands are the same!) and following the natural “curves” of my teeth. I’m really looking forward to implementing my new flossing routine soon.

Color (Designer with a love for self-paced projects and fixing fillings)

Throwback to the end of 2021, my resolution was to overcome my fears. I enrolled in a scuba diving course in Cairns in December, and because of the tight schedule, I only expected myself, at least, to complete the pool training part. Long story short, I spent three days completing the two-day training, and don’t think I will go back to complete the boat diving part anytime soon. Surprisingly, I found myself happier once I made the call.

I wouldn’t say my 2022 goal has failed, but it has helped me make my 2023 New Year’s resolution: Some things are just not my things! I should focus on how I feel at every moment. I’ll keep working on projects that give me some fear, but without rushing myself.

Finally, one resolution for oral care is to fix the fillings as my dentist suggested months ago …. so 2023 is all about feeling & filling. ✌️

Etienne (Developer with a penchant for sporting activities and flossing daily)

For me, my new year’s resolution is to get fitter and play in some kind of sport competition. I’ve already begun by trying a whole bunch of different sports last year, like beach volleyball and badminton. In terms of oral health, I’m aiming to floss every day again.

Fredricia (Marketing wiz and soon-to-be a swimming & flossing wiz)

In general, I want to swim more - at least once a month. For my teeth, I want to FLOSS. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Jhonny (Developer with goals for increasing stamina and decreasing sugar)

For 2023, I want to improve my stamina by doing more exercise and get healthier. I would also like to stop eating sugar and whiten my teeth.

Kylie (Product manager striving to live in the present and looking forward to brighter teeth)

This year, my aim is to live in the moment and be more present. Oral health-wise, I want to whiten my teeth!

Larissa (Designer with a hope to hold handstands and eat less sugar)

In 2023, I want to be able to hold a handstand for 30 seconds. On an oral health-related note, I’d like to eat less sugar - it’s bad for your teeth!

Mark (UX researcher with a passion for music and now, flossing more)

Some of my general New Year’s resolutions are the same as every year: read more, play the guitar more, eat healthy and exercise, meditate more and learn to do new things. For my oral health-related goal: again, the same as every year… floss more.

Miguel (Developer with a love for running and bamboo oral health products)

For the new year, I resolve to consistently go to the gym and to train for a running race. Here's to a healthy and active 2023! My oral health-related goal: Try a bamboo electric toothbrush.

There you have it. From handstands to bamboo toothbrushes, these are the Pearlii Team’s New Year’s resolutions.
