·         Eat more fibre. If you have mild constipation, eating more fibre may help. High fibre foods help make your stool (poo) softer and easier to pass.

·         Slowly add fibre to your diet so that you do not get bloated and gassy. Try to eat meals and snacks around the same time every day. This can help make you go to the bathroom more regularly

·         Drink more liquids. Liquids add water to your stool (poo), making it softer and easier to pass. Have water, prune, apple or pear juice, fruit juices with pulp, hot drinks like herbal tea and broth, or small amounts of caffeinated coffee and tea.
