Self-Esteem, Positivity, & Incontinence
How many of you out there made a New Year's resolution? Don't be shy, you aren't alone. A Marist poll from December 2016 shows that 44% of Americans planned to make a significant change in their lives. Sadly; the New York Times reports that, by the time February rolls around each year, there's an 80% chance that your resolution has failed.
As humans, we are very committed to our habits; it causes our brains a lot of stress to change our habits, and the older we get the harder it is. Moreover, if we fail to reach our goal, we tend to feel shame, therefore worsening our self-esteem. It's a vicious cycle.
Low self-esteem matters more than you think. When you are less self-confident, you expend less energy in your everyday tasks. Your boss may notice a decrease in your performance at work. Your sex drive may be lowered. You tend to spend less time with your friends and family. Sounds awful, doesn't it? There are studies that show there is a link that urinary incontinence can be a factor for depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety.
There is good news though: if you've taken the important step of identifying something you wish to improve, you've already done something positive for yourself.
The hard work comes in actually fulfilling that wish. Making vague plans of “eat healthier” or “exercise more” do not really cut it; you need to make a detailed plan of action with specific, directed steps to help guide you along the way. We are talking checklists and detailed plans here.
Urinary incontinence can be a real issue on a woman's self-esteem. When you whizz, or sprinkle, pee on your pants or you leak pee when you sneeze, obviously you aren't going to feel like a million bucks. That is absolutely understandable.
The sexual frustration that may come along with that can be equally tough as well. Traditional solutions such as Kegels might work, but they take a fair amount of effort and technique that few have the energy for.
Surprise, surprise, this is where the Yarlap® comes in! The Yarlap® represents a manageable solution to your issues with incontinence. Each day, you insert the probe, power up the device for 20 minutes, and have the exercise done for you (there is your detailed checklist)! You can improve your bladder function while keeping your focus on other tasks.
The shame of not meeting your goals can perhaps be the biggest obstacle in achieving self-improvement. Setbacks will occur in pretty much anything you try in life, and when the setbacks involve you wetting yourself, they are all the more frustrating. The Yarlap®® helps get rid of the setbacks and gives you an opportunity to actually take your mind off your incontinence. Oh, hello self-esteem of a goddess, it’s nice to see you again.
