Controlling your urge to pee is not a healthy habit, but sometimes we need to control it as you can't go at that particular time. Holding it for a few minutes can be made easier if you follow certain body hacks. Some of the common conditions where you might need to control the bladder-full sensation are:
  • You are out on a long drive and can't find a public toilet to get the relief.
  • You are in middle of a meeting and going out to answer the natural call might make a bad impression on others and your seniors might get upset due to it.
  • You are in middle of a class or training session and don't want to disturb anybody by going out. 
During such time these body hacks can definitely help you. Lets go to main points without wasting any more time.

You must have noticed that the urge to pee occur more often during winters. It is because our body don't sweat during those days. During summers sweating removes the water automatically so lesser water reaches our urinary bladder.

You can't wear warm clothes during summer, then what you should do to control the urge to urinate. Here are some easier tips:
  • Listen to music
  • Sing some song or just mutter
  • Solve some puzzle
  • Do some calculations
