I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Depend. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I have the luxury of working from home and not in a typical 9 to 5 desk job. I still find myself not walking enough. It’s crazy because I have no excuse. And it’s gotten worse since I stopped wearing my FitBit. One of my resolutions is to start tracking my steps again and walking more. I need to get back to my 10,000 steps a day! Can’t get away from your desk? Stand up every hour for about 5 minutes to get some activity.
Ways to Stay Active
Get a dog. (Or borrow one)
Did you know walking a dog can help burn around 200 calories for every half-hour of exercise. Pets need activity, so needing to walk a dog is a great way to get some exercise. Don’t have a dog? See if a neighbor needs a dog walked or visit your local shelter and volunteer.
Clean your house!
Who knew that cleaning your house would help you burn calories! Vacuuming especially really gets you moving. The kids rooms are upstairs and I find myself getting a lot of steps in some days!
Work out with friends.
Whether you join a gym or go out dancing, getting fit with a buddy is always a lot more fun.
Play with your kids!
Jump on the trampoline, swing on some swings! Playing with your kids is a fantastic way to burn calories and stay active.
Of course, if you’re one of three American women that suffer from bladder leakage, staying active could be a challenge. It’s okay, bladder leakage is really common and can be caused by things like pregnancy (in my case) or even diabetes.
Depend Silhouette Active Fit is the Depend brand’s new moderate absorbency brief featuring thin design for complete comfort and the trusted protection of Depend. They come in black and beige and have a low rise so they are discreet and fit under your favorite jeans or work out clothes.
And for me? Sometimes they’re the answer. Especially if I know I’m going to be bouncing on the trampoline or chasing my kids around the backyard. Because things happen. I don’t have to stop playing with my kids to go change my pants anymore. Where’s the fun in that?
Are you active on Social Media? As part of Underwareness, the Depend brand is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage . For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage. How amazing is that?
