Establish a routine

Doing the same things every day can be helpful for establishing bowel regularity.

Practice daily stress management

Stress activates the sympathetic nervous system, which makes it very difficult to digest properly!

Drink enough water

Dehydration can cause a lot of constipation. If you're increasing fiber intake you definitely need to also increase hydration!

Increase fiber intake

Most don't get enough fiber. Aim for fiber at each meal, be that from vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds or grains!

Increase movement

Too much sitting can really bind things up. Aim to increase movement, even if just by walking!

Be wary of supplements

Certain supplements, like iron, can cause constipation. Be aware of which ones you're taking, as they could be contributing to infrequent bowel movements.

Add in probiotic rich foods

Things like yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut are excellent sources and can help get things moving! You may even consider adding in a probiotic supplement.
