Laughing may be a part of one's socialization, so it should not be discouraged. In non-restricted clients, a fluid intake of at least 2 to 3 L/ day is encouraged; clients with stress incontinence may reduce their fluid intake to avoid incontinence at the risk of developing dehydration and urinary tract infections. Establishing a voiding schedule would be more effective in the prevention of stress incontinence rather than carrying incontinence pads. Dietary irritants and natural diuretics, such as caffeine and alcoholic beverages, may increase stress incontinence. Kegel exercises strengthen the sphincter and structural supports of the bladder.
