- Eat a healthy diet that is high in fiber. Fiber helps to keep stool soft and easy to pass. Aim to eat at least 25-35 grams of fiber per day.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Water and other fluids help to keep stool from becoming hard and dry. Aim to drink eight glasses of water per day.
- Get regular exercise. Exercise helps to stimulate the bowels and can help to prevent constipation. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
- Don’t ignore the urge to go to the bathroom. When you feel the urge to go, go immediately. Holding it in can make constipation worse.
- Use the toilet regularly, even if you don’t feel the urge to go. This can help to train your bowels to have regular bowel movements.
If you are concerned about constipation, please talk to your doctor. They can help you determine the underlying cause of your constipation and recommend the best treatment options for you.
