7. PROPER EATING TIME:

Even though you are eating healthy, but if your timings are off-base, it won’t give you benefits anyways. Make a proper schedule for your meals. An important measure regarding eating schedule that you should always bear in mind is that, do not eat at least 2 hours before bedtime. Moreover, avoid the curse of “mid-night snacking” as much as possible. Once you feel you are done, stop eating. Forcing your stomach to stuff up extra food can cause heart burn. Keep fruits and healthy snacks for tea time or during hunger bangs instead of chips, carbonated water and junk food items.

8. EXERCISE:

In the pursuit of keeping up your colonic healthy, exercise forms a huge part of the equation. Exercise can increase blood circulation to the whole of your digestive system.

Yoga, stretch exercises, and cardio workout on a daily basis for 15-30 minutes a day is more than enough and sufficient to boost the health of your digestive system. Opt for stairs instead of an elevator, and perform a power walk during lunch and coffee break, since these measures also add much to the health of your bowel.

9. LEARN TO MANAGE STRESS:

Too much stress or anxiety can cause your digestive system to go into overdrive state. Stress has a direct effect on digestive health. Build time for relaxation into your daily routine.

Stress casts several negative impacts on the health of the digestive system. It disturbs the speed of food passage, which is exhibited by symptoms such as constipation and diarrhea. Nervousness leads to diarrhea. Stress can increase the acidity of the stomach and is one of the leading causes of peptic ulcer, as it stimulates overproduction of gastric acid, which can worsen the condition in those having a positive history of stomach ulcer.

Chronic cases of tension and mental stress either produce a reduced appetite (causing unnecessary weight loss and weakness) or over eating (causing weight gain and obesity).

UNDERSTAND THE NEED OF YOUR BODY:

Try to figure out the needs of your body. You should well determine your hunger times, and the kind of food your body is demanding at a particular moment. For example, after an exercise, your body goes into starvation, and that is the time you need to feed yourselves with carbs to overcome the calorie loss in a healthy manner.

Last but not the least, think about wellness, and not the disease.
