The negative effects on your pelvic floor may be closer than you realize to the actual floor -
you know, the one that you stand on.
Are you struggling with urinary incontinence and looking for the best ways to take care of your pelvic floor? Maybe you’ve already done tons of kegels, and feel that your pelvic floor must be plenty strong. Maybe you still have that nagging sense of weakness, heaviness or pressure, not to mention the urinary urgency, frequency, and bladder leaks when it is least convenient. Not that there is ever a convenient time for bladder leaks…
Well, you may not have realized that your choice of footwear can have a profound impact on your bladder control.
Every year around this time I hear from people about their latest new year’s resolution. Lately more and more, though, I am hearing from friends, family, and clients, that they have stopped making new year’s resolutions. They feel that they never stick to their resolutions for longer than a few weeks anyhow, so they say “What’s the point?” For the same reasons, I see people shunning the idea of setting personal goals, because they worry about failing to reach the goal they set. Does this mean that goals and resolutions are bad ways to pursue personal growth? Not necessarily, but recent research shows there may be a better way.
