It’s known as [classical conditioning](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_conditioning)

The general idea is that you pee in a bathroom, and (I’d assume) mostly in bathrooms. Over years and years, your body associates “bathroom” with “feeling the need to pee.” This is why you urgently need to pee more when you get into a bathroom.

The concept is the same with your home. You pee at home, so getting close to home makes you need to pee more.
