As the pace of life accelerates, people's diets become more refined and activities are decreasing, many people are troubled by constipation. Constipation refers to a disease in which the constipation is blocked, the bowel movement time is prolonged, or the bowel movement is not smooth. Constipation can cause premature aging, malnutrition, obesity, bowel cancer and certain mental disorders. In order to avoid the pain caused by constipation, it is very important to do a good job of prevention.
To develop a good habit of regular bowel movements: develop the habit of regular bowel movements every day. Going to the toilet every day can form a conditioned reflex. It is best to defecate every morning or after a meal. If you have a bowel movement, you should go to the toilet. If you have to bear the inconvenience, it will affect the formation of defecation reflex for a long time and cause habitual constipation. Do not read books or newspapers during defecation, otherwise it will take too long to defecate and cause hemorrhoids.
Pay attention to dietary conditioning: Arrange the diet structure reasonably, eat more foods rich in dietary fiber, and eat more fruits and vegetables. Drink enough water to get enough water in the intestine to facilitate the passage of intestinal contents. After getting up every day, take warm boiled water orally to moisturize and stimulate intestinal motility and cause bowel movements. Drinking a moderate amount of honey water every morning can stimulate bowel movements. In addition, the daily diet should be sufficient to stimulate bowel movements.
Proper exercise: exercise can increase the tension of the abdominal muscles and enhance the peristalsis of the gastrointestinal tract, and improve the lack of defecation motivation. Patients who are unable to move for a long time should also sit appropriately to increase gastrointestinal peristalsis.
Rub the abdomen frequently: use your palm to press the navel or the four fingers on the navel, and massage the abdomen in a clockwise direction with proper pressure. It can make the abdominal blood unobstructed, increase the activity of abdominal muscles and intestinal smooth muscle, increase gastrointestinal motility, thereby enhancing the digestion and absorption of food and the excretion of feces. Perseverance can prevent constipation.
To maintain a good attitude: intense work and study as well as greater pressure in life are related to the occurrence of constipation, so it is very important to maintain a good attitude. Appropriately decompress yourself. Relaxation will benefit your physical and mental health.

Trying to exercise appropriately can also help promote gastrointestinal motility. Pay attention to health care during pregnancy and go to the hospital for regular checkups.
