Get out this holiday season - don't be a prisoner to incontinence
Savouring the idea of seeing family and friends again?
For all of us "weather geeks" (yep, you know who you are!), we know crisp seasonal air is on its way...
Looking forward to a special trip to see long-missed folks?
We hope so - and we hope you won't feel held back by any bladder leak or incontinence worries.
It happens to more people more often than you think:
"No one knows about my issue and if I stay home, I won't have any embarrassing moments."
This kind of mindset can force you into unnecessary isolation - perhaps giving you an excuse to avoid car trips or even neighbourly visits.
It's beautiful outside. Get out there and smell that snow (we're Canadian - what can we say?). Make the best of what this wonderful season has to offer.
Don't let leak fears make you a prisoner
With the right protection and planning you can go anywhere. If you are travelling by car, make sure you take what you need with you. Put a box of disposable pads or a package of underwear or briefs in the car right now.
You'll know where they are, and you'll be ready for anything.
Better yet, pick up a washable, discreet chair pad for the car or plane. You wouldn't believe the options out there today.
Toss one on the car seat, and no one but you will ever know!
Ideas to help you pack what you need
If you are visiting a friend or relative and expecting to stay overnight, bring along a discreet furniture underpad to put on your bed and minimize any fear of leaks in anyone's bed.
Consider boosting your protection with booster pads
Also, consider booster pads as added reassurance inside your usual protection. Booster pads offer added protection to any disposable undergarment as they line any disposable product for extra absorbency or to 'boost' absorbency.
The hourglass shape of the Tranquility TopLiner Booster Contour Pads help contain bowel incontinence by providing a wide absorbent area.They give you an extra level of confidence. And no one will know you're wearing them but you.
Men - 'guard' yourselves from fear of leaks
For men, if you're worried -- and yes, we know that you are -- men's guards will keep you comfortable and protected. Put a package in your suitcase and always be prepared.
Reassure guests by providing washable, absorbent bed pads
And finally, if you want to encourage your own shy visitors, look to our discreet chair pads and bed pads to make life for everyone just a little bit easier.
Take My Liberty to new heights with you this season!
