I can do this all day y’all. Here’s what I want you to do. To have the best position to have you use the restroom.

Number one, keep your knees higher than your hips. In fact, it may be worthwhile to get a step, so a squatty potty to keep those knees higher above where it should be to allow gravity to occur. What happens when you do that is that there is an angle in your bottom where your rectum is at, that becomes more like a slide to allow things to pass through if you have your knees higher than your hips.

Number two, I want you to lean forward and put your elbows on your knees. Number three, I want you to bulge out your abdomen. And number four, I want you to straighten your spine. Now this may seem like a lot of work, but after time, this could be almost second nature. If you do this over time, this is the optimal way to have you have that epic dump.

Now I’m gonna give you some bonus tips on what I recommend and other things you can do to help make sure you have the best bowel movement ever. Number one, don’t resist the urge to go. If you feel the urge to poop, go, don’t wait, don’t delay. By delaying, you’re teaching your body, it’s okay to not have that bowel movement whenever you feel the urge to use the restroom.

Number two, don’t rush. It’s okay if you don’t use the restroom and you’re sitting there for a little bit. But number three, don’t sit there more than a minute or two. Don’t just sit there and wait, wait, wait. Your body is going to get used to that. It’s going to realize, all right, I can just chill and relax while this homeboy here just sitting on the pod doing nothing.

Number four, sit properly. Follow my instruction. Number five, sit your body in a rhythm. Your body thrives in the rhythm. Go to the bathroom every single day. At the same time, have this simulated rhythm where your body knows when it’s going to go. Add coffee or hot tea to your drinks. In the morning, you have what’s called the gastrocolic reflex.

This is the reflex that helps open up your bowels and wakes it up. So it’s something like eating. Drinking something like hot teas or a coffee will move things around to allow you to use the restroom easier and more frequently. Make sure you stay hydrated heavily. Two cups of water in the morning, one cup before each meal, and two cups before you go to bed.

Get moving. Exercise is fantastic for your gut and it’ll help out with constipation. And make sure you add more fiber. Have illium, add that to your food, add that to your drinks. Try something to get you more fiber to get you going and flowing. So here’s my call to action to you. If you’re having issues with constipation, assume the position and get ready to poo correctly.
