If you’re anything like me, you love to be outdoors when the weather gets nice each summer. But when you have light bladder incontinence, you’re reluctant to leave the safe zones of your home. It can be exceedingly frustrating if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, like me.
You see, starting in my late twenties incontinence became just as much a social issue as a physical one when it came to vacationing, road trips, and sporting activities. Just the hassle of memorizing the location of every bathroom can be nearly impossible, and caused me to cancel far more date nights and engagements that I’d care to remember.
For me, the more bouts of light bladder incontinence I faced the more I started to avoid activities, such as playing tennis, hiking, and walking on my local parks open access track due to the fear of a possible bladder accident. I feared something as simple as a contagious stream of laughter would turn into embarrassing bladder leakage. Especially places surrounded by water!
Thankfully, there are products like Poise incontinence products for women, that have helped me get back into the swing of life each summer, including walking at the lake. So today, I wanted to share five tips for enjoying warm weather outdoor activities this summer with bladder control leakage.
When you’re making plans to go hiking or camping, make sure you verify the locations of nearby bathrooms in case of a bladder control emergency. If you are going camping or hiking, know how long your trail is, and the distance to your park entrances, trail caps, and restrooms. A little forethought goes a long way.
Apps such as the free “Sit or Squat” app, provide you with a restroom locator for summer activity favorites the world over- beach, national monuments, trails, and amusement parks included.
It goes without saying that if you go to the bathroom immediately before walking out the door, can help you cut down the need to go when you’re out and about enjoying the summer.
Never avoiding hydrating fluids when outdoors, especially in the warm summer months. Instead, drink small sips of water at regular intervals, to help minimize leaks from occurring.
My best tip for preparing for light bladder control emergencies during the summer activity season is to always stay prepared for emergencies. Before I hit the road for any summer activities I always pack an in-case-of-emergency bag.
In my bag I always carry:
- A zero waste, stainless steel water bottle.
- A change of light, organic cotton shorts.
- A bandana.
- A small pouch of Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads that will help me with bladder control.
I find this bag vital as incontinence is often too unpredictable. So I intentionally make a point to equip myself with the best and most affordable incontinence protection I can to help me feel secure away from home. My favorite incontinence product for summer preparedness is the Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads. I choose these pads as they give me both complete protection without any unnecessary, unsightly bulk that normal incontinence pads can cause.
I love that Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads give me the absorbency of regular pads, just 40% thinner. An added bonus? The sides of each Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pad features Leak-Block technology to keep any unforeseen leaks under control, and the Dry-Touch top layer wicks moisture away from my body for up to eight hours too! These pads are your ultimate 3-1 protection for light bladder leaks, as they help control odor, prevent dryness, and most importantly keep you comfortable all summer long. I simply tuck my pouch into my travel cross-body bag and I’m all set!
What’s even better? When I’m prepping for fun summer activities, I can just stop by my local Rite Aid pharmacy to pick up Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads.
The Poise Thin-Shape pads are located on the personal health care aisle. Which is makes for quick, easy one-stop shopping for me!
Before my last trip to the lake, I purchased the Poise Thin-Shape moderate absorbency pads, in the 66-count pack, which was affordably priced at only $14.99.
And all of my fellow savvy savers will appreciate that I was also able to use an on-package peelie coupon for an additional $2.00 off my purchase price, making my latest pack of Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads only $12.99!
While in-store it’s also a good time to check our or stock up on other great Poise Products like the Poise Impressa Bladder Supports. These awesome packs are available in sizing kits which include Size 1, Size 2, and Size 3 supports, and are also affordably priced at only $7.99 per kit!
I say all that to say this, folks. Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads are my best-kept secret for bladder control as well as my first line of defense during summer activities. I encourage you all to stop by your local Rite Aid Pharmacy and stock-up on the Poise Thin-Shape Moderate Absorbency Pads before your next summer activities. Because when you are able to stay active is good not only for the body but for the mind as well. With Poise I am back to not only enjoying the great outdoors this summer but four-mile jogs by the lake, too!
Here’s to summer,
