When you’re trying to live your best life, urinary incontinence symptoms can feel like an ongoing nuisance, and sometimes it can feel isolating and even insurmountable. However, it’s important to remember that you’re never alone, and there are thousands of online resources that can help with alleviating symptoms. Start by making subtle, easier updates to your lifestyle with these three behavioral changes for lessening the severity of urinary incontinence symptoms.
1. Eliminate foods and beverages that worsen incontinence
Foods and drinks containing dairy, caffeine and alcohol can exacerbate urinary incontinence symptoms. If you need some help redefining your diet, there are a myriad of healthier recipes available online to help you cut out harmful irritants.
2. Experiment with bladder training
Bladder training is commonly known as “the first line of treatment” when combating incontinence and overactive bladders. Bladder training involves urinating on a specific schedule, when possible, with the goal of conditioning one’s bladder to retain urine for longer periods of time between emptying the bladder. Start by strengthening the pelvis with Kegel exercises, as these muscles control the stop and flow of urine.
