Use a squatty potty

If you haven’t yet used a squatty potty, it’s time to try one. The way we sit on regular toilets pinches our intestines, making it harder for stool to pass through. A squatty potty elevates the legs, relieving that tension on the intestines and opening the pathways to an easy poop.

Stand/move while having breakfast

Sitting down in general pinches our intestines in a way that hinders bowel movements. If you do generally go in the morning, don’t sit down until you have. Move around your home (with a cup of that hot water with cayenne pepper) until you feel the need to go. Don’t immediately sit at a laptop, first thing.
