Take the example of a pro-athlete. When an athlete is continuously training on the edge of his ability, the body sees this as a constant state of stress. Not giving the body enough rest to recuperate will cause injuries. The body is designed in a way that it will always tell us what it wants or needs. It is essential to honor the sign. A simple thing as needing to pee is your body’s way of telling you that your bladder is full. If we don’t follow up on this sign, the body will feel constant tension in the bladder and will keep giving the signal that the urine needs to go out. If we continuously let our body in this state of stress in the long run, this can cause all kinds of problems in the bladder and urinary tract. So listening to what your body is telling you is key.
