There has been a theme in my home over the last few months. The theme is “push Mom out of the house so she’ll do something for her.” I’m not the best at taking care of my mental and physical health. Well, I’m not as good at it as I should be. I make sure my family is well taken care of, and I end up putting myself on the back burner. It’s been a journey when it comes to listening to my body and making time for me.
Lately, I’ve been researching all the things that women need to be aware of, when it comes to their bodies. Mentally, we go through so much, and that is sometimes reflected in our physical health. We wear many hats, and tend to either have no knowledge of, or are embarrassed by, the things our bodies do naturally.
One of the most interesting things I discovered was the lack of information about female incontinence. As a mom of 3 who had 3 natural births, experiencing bladder leaks is not uncommon for me. And yes, it can be embarrassing when you don’t realize how common it is for all women, even those that may not have had children.
Female Incontinence Facts
Did you know that 1-in-3 women experience bladder leaks? Even more interesting, 1 in 2 African American women 18 years or older experience bladder leaks, but only 1-in-9 use incontinence protection. Wow. I recently started to use Always Discreet when I’m out and about, making time for me. Spending time at the nail spa, a yoga class, or even at a nearby lake to sit and read, I make sure I wear my Always Discreet. It helps me enjoy my day, and it reminds me that this isn’t something to be ashamed about. I’m a girl on the go, and I need to dress accordingly.
Always Discreet is available in pads, liners and underwear, so it’s a product for all kinds of women looking for coverage while enjoying their days. Always Discreet is made specifically for light to heavy bladder leaks that will protect you in ways that your period pad can’t.
It’s been eye-opening to learn more about my body and mental health, as well as schedule time for me to take care of both of those things. We all need to make time for ourselves. We deserve it.
What do you do to make time for yourself?
