Tips to help prevent constipation

A number of lifestyle changes can be made to help prevent constipation:

  • Eat a well-balanced diet high in fibre, including fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole-grain bread and cereals
  • Drink plenty of water – for adults, aim to drink at least 2L of fluids a day
  • Try to stay active – regular exercise may help relieve symptoms of constipation
  • Practice good toilet habits – maintaining a regular toilet time, for example, by going in the morning or soon after a meal when the bowel is most active can help you stay regular and never ignore the urge to use the toilet
