1. Make sure to consume adequate amounts of fiber.
Doctors from the University of California San Francisco recommend 25-30g of fiber per day, so make sure to eat your veggies!
2. Poop in a squatting position.
Believe it or not, pooping in the proper position makes a huge difference. One easy way to put yourself into a squat-like position is to slide a stool beneath your feet while you’re taking care of business on the throne.
3. Make sure to drink enough water.
Believe it or not, chronic constipation can be due to a lack of fluid consumption. Drink more water, and liquids in general, to resolve that problem.
4. Drink a nice warm cup of coffee
Provided that you’re maintaining proper levels of hydration (that’s where #3 comes in), consuming caffeine can actually help ease bowel movements.
