Day two of Better Bladder Challenge (2 Minute Video)

Stay well-hydrated

Staying hydrated helps you make adequate amounts of urine to help fight urinary tract infections. The more you drink the more urine you will generate. One of your natural defenses against urinary tract infections is to wash out those bacteria as they are trying to build up in the bladder or the urethra. Your goal is to make 1.5 to 2 liters of urine a day.

My favorite drink container is the Hydro flask.  CLICK HERE if you want to grab one on Amazon.

Challenge #1:

Perform a 24 hour voiding diary. Get a measuring cup and write down the time and volume of each urination. If you are not making 1.5 to 2 liters (68 oz) of urine a day, then you need to increase your fluid intake.

Urinate On A Regular Basis

While holding your urine may allow you to get more done at work or home it also allows bacteria to build up. Each time you urinate you are pushing bacteria out that are trying to reach your bladder or build up in your urethra. Teachers, nurses, and truck drivers pride themselves in being able to hold their urine. They aren’t doing themselves any favors and can eventually be more susceptible to bladder problems. It doesn’t help to hold your urine all day long.

Challenge #2:

Set your alarm for every 3 hours during the day and try to urinate at least every 3 hours. If you don’t have enough in your bladder, then you are probably not drinking enough.
