Have you been told to do your kegel exercises every day, three times a day, forever? And were you given great advise on how to sneak in your “daily Kegel requirements” during normal every day activities? I bet you are doing them right now as you are reading this article.
If you are one of the many who forget to do a squeeze while stopped at a traffic light, at each bus stop, while waiting on line at the grocery store or when you are putting away the dishes there is some good news for you. I recently found several Kegel coaching apps to remind you on the iPhone. Some of these apps include specific exercise programs too and range in price from 99 cents to about $5. They all looked interesting, but instead of adding yet another app to my phone I decided to save some money by setting 3 separate daily alarms to give me a “nudge” when it is time to do my Kegel exercises. I guess the trick will be not to turn off the alarm until I actually do my exercises.
Leave a comment and tell me how you remember to do your Kegel’s.
