For some women, developing a pelvic floor exercise routine can be tough. They are aware of the benefits and how important it is to do your pelvic floor exercises, but somehow life gets in the way and they can’t fit exercising into their day. Unfortunately, this all too common situation affects many women. So how does one turn this around, and turn pelvic floor training exercises into a daily habit? Read further for our Carin users tips to get started:
Bedtime/Morning time: Before you get out of bed in the morning or in the evening, take 5-10min to do those pelvic floor exercises.
Driving: Some women spend quite a bit of time in the car commuting. Why not use that time to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles? Your cue could be at the red traffic light when waiting for it to turn green. Contract. Relax. Contract. Relax.
Watching TV: Have you ever tried watching tv and doing your pelvic floor exercises? Some women find it relaxing to get their mat out, lay it in the living room and watch their favourite show whilst doing their pelvic floor exercises.
At work: Depending on your type of work, this situation could also be a possibility. If you are sitting in your chair at work, you could take 5min to contract and relax sporadically. Of if you have any heavy lifting in your day, take care to contract your core and implement the techniques used.
Overall, from what we have seen, women that integrate pelvic floor training into their day to day life have the best results. The trick is to make sure to really integrate them and make them happen. Good luck with it!
