3 Natural Ways to Ease Constipation and Bloating

Constipation is one of the most common digestive issues which has a huge effect on your overall health, happiness, mood and energy (usually making you irritable, angry, uptight and frustrated or trying to hide).

These are my top tips for supporting healthy digestion:
1- PRIORITIZE your digestion**** prioritize your digestion in your daily routine and life whether you are traveling or not! from the moment I wake up my routine is created to help promote healthy digestion because I know this makes or breaks my day. I start with movement, water, greens and make sure to give myself the proper time I need to ensure effectiveness. A lot of people need to be in certain environments and situations to feel relaxed and comfortable to have a healthy bowel movement, so learn about your body and what environment is best for you... do you prefer to be at home? In a private bathroom? Are you fine in public bathrooms? Do you usually go in the Morning? Afternoon or Night? Start to learn your patterns and make sure to honor what your body needs and prioritize it! If you have to be alone at your house and usually go in the morning then make sure you give yourself enough time in the morning before you commit to anything else for this. This is SO important.
2- Hydration💦 this means not only drinking plenty of water throughout the day but getting enough healthy lubricating fats and oils in your diet such as olive oil, avocado, coconut oil, organic butter to hydrate your stomach lining and help aid in digestion, so start adding 1-2 tbsp in your daily meals. Also, If you are not great at drinking water then track it by carrying a large 16 or 32oz portable glass or stainless steal water bottle and finishing 2-4 bottles full. track this until it becomes habit. Hydration is the key to constipation and people easily forget about the importance of this because it’s too simple. Lastly, incorporate hydrating greens in every meal to boost fiber and health, avocado, spinach or green powder in the AM and greens with lunch and dinner.
3- Daily Movement 🚶‍♀️5/10 mins of body rolls, twists, squats, jumping jacks, Qi gong, 🏃‍♀️,🧘‍to boost it!
