10 Tips to Get Your Bladder Under Control
Train yourself to hold more pee.
Some people need more frequent bathroom breaks than others. But this may be because you’ve taught yourself some bad habits which, believe it or not, can be reversed. Try this step-by-step bladder-training technique:
- For a day or 2, keep track of the times you urinate during the day.
- Select an interval for training that is 15 minutes longer than you normally take between toilet visits.
- When you start training, empty your bladder first thing in the morning. If the urge hits, use our techniques suggested in this article to delay it until your set interval.
- Start increasing your interval by 15 minutes every day. Over several weeks or months, you may find far fewer feelings of urgency!
