Maintain a Regular Bowel Regimen
Try using the toilet at the same time every day, especially after breakfast, since the colonic activity is at its highest at this time.
Avoid Sitting on the Toilet for Prolonged Periods
Place a footstool in front of the toilet to help elevate your thighs (this ensures that the pelvis adopts an optimum position for defecation).
Eat More Fruits
Pears, prunes, apples, and avocados contain the natural laxative sorbitol.
Consume a High Fibre Diet
Try to aim for a daily target of 25 – 28g.
Inactive lifestyles are usually associated with constipation.
Lose a Little Weight
Try to aim for a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18.5 – 24.9.
