The modern woman does it all—from working a full-time job, to raising a family, to tending a home and maintaining a social life. Sometimes weight management can be put on the backburner as the number of tasks pile up. Maintaining a healthy weight is beneficial to overall health1, but did you know there is a connection between your occasional loss of bladder control and your weight?

The Weight Factor

Carrying excess weight can be a part of the problem.

If you experience the occasional frequent urge to urinate you understand the frustrations of interrupted sleep and embarrassing frequent trips to the bathroom. In fact, millions of women experience occasional urgency or wake up during sleep to go to the bathroom.

Carrying excess weight can be a part of the problem, it can add pressure on your abdomen, pushing down on the bladder. This can increase the urge to go to the bathroom more frequently.2

Eating Healthy and Staying Fit  

While it is sometimes difficult to find time to focus on your weight when you are living a busy life, there are easy ways to address weight management without adding more tasks to your already busy life. Start by thinking about the types of food you eat. Simple diet changes, like substituting excessively sugary and processed foods for healthier options, will leave you feeling better and help with weight control. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and stay hydrated to promote increased metabolic activity.

Staying fit is the next step. When you don’t have time to go to the gym, incorporate simple exercises into your day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator when at work or the mall. Running an errand? Consider grabbing a helmet and biking your way toward fitness. Start your weekend with a morning jog to enjoy the fresh air while also burning some calories.
