Peeing and using a toilet might seem like a very simple thing to do. It’s something so natural that we don’t even give it a second thought. But there are mistakes that we can make that might affect our health. For example, the habit of peeing “just in case” before you leave your house can actually have negative consequences.

We are always amazed at how the simplest habits can turn into something way more complex. So here’s what you need to know about your toilet routine!

1. You pee “just in case.”

Before leaving home, you might think it’s a good idea to go to the bathroom, even though you might not really need to. It’s fine if you’re going out for a long time and it might be difficult to find a restroom. It also makes sense if you’re going out for a long run.

2. You push to pee.

Sometimes when you want to pee more quickly or to fully empty your bladder you might strain. However, that’s not a healthy thing to do, because, over time, it’ll make your pelvic floor muscles weaker. This can make it difficult to hold in pee or poop and to support your organs.

3. You sit on the toilet incorrectly
