Growing Old is Just a State of Mind is part of 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. #Underawareness
Coming to grips with the reality of aging takes a cheerful attitude and faith that change is good. All the wisdom I have acquired in my 62 years has served me well. And living 24-7 with my precious grandkids lets me still play as much as I want to. So I need to stay active and not worry about anything slowing me down.
Growing Old Is Just a State of Mind
My grandkids keep me young at heart. And they teach me that growing old is just a state mind. As I chase them, doing my best to keep up is what keeps me feeling young and full of energy! Between travel, play, and some time alone to relax, I’m feeling younger every day!
We’re enjoying hitting the road more now that the kids are older. We’ve been on road trips across Texas, to Florida, and to Georgia! We’re headed back to Florida soon too! New adventures keep me feeling young and looking forward to tomorrow!
Of course traveling with kids means a lot of bathroom stops along the way. Sometimes when Weston has to go, he really has to go. Right before we left, I realized that I was in the same boat as Weston, when I have to go, I have to go! The last thing I want to be worrying about while on the road is bladder leakage!
The kids would rather play outside than stay in the house. We love to play in our fort, swing on the swing set, and draw with sidewalk chalk. They can amuse themselves for hours, but sometimes I have to cut our time short because nature calls and yet again, Grambo needs to hurry inside.
Still, getting outside and playing in the dirt or swinging on the swings keeps me feeling young and alive!
With all the action of a day with the kids, I do need some time to myself to just relax and decompress, which is why I love to go on a daily walk. I usually head out in the morning before the grandkids wake up. The fresh air, the quiet of the neighborhood, and the sun rising on another day is a great way to start the day. Lately I have been having to shorten my walk because I don’t want to get too far from the nearest bathroom.
So how do I handle these awkward situations and keep myself feeling more confident?
I Count on Depend
I was relieved to find out that I was not alone in my experiences with bladder leakage. Over 51 million American women experience bladder leakage. That’s 1 in 3 American women!
In researching solutions, I discovered Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs. Their thin design with a lower rise is comfortable and dependable. And they come in two colors, black and beige, so you don’t have to worry about them showing through your clothes.
And I was so pleasantly surprised when I put one of the briefs on for the first time. It was like putting on my own favorite style of underwear. They felt sleek and smooth, but best of all they were comfortable. My first real test of their dependability and comfort was wearing them on a 11-hour road trip without fear of leakage…I was so happy with Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs. Depend…you’ve come a long way, baby!
The Depend brand has created a social movement to break down the embarrassment surrounding bladder leakage. They want to raise Underawareness!
Share your videos and photos using #Underawareness, and they will donate $1, up to $3 million, to fund charities to research and educate about bladder leakage. Connect with Depend on Facebook and Twitter to learn more!
