Pop quizzes! What does your poop say about your health?
There are several reasons why you have trouble moving, including not drinking enough water, traveling, not being physically active, not managing your stress well, and again, not getting enough fiber.
In addition to increasing your fiber intake through diet and/or high-quality fiber supplements, make sure you’re properly hydrating and moving your body to promote regularity.* If you suspect external stressors are causing your bowel movements to be MIA, try practicing mindfulness (such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises).
