Start slowly and increase your fiber intake gradually to help with constipation. Do not delay defecation, when the urge to defecate arises, so that the stool does not get harder.
In addition to consuming adequate fiber foods, to help smooth bowel movements, you are also advised to do light exercise regularly, such as walking, cycling, or swimming.Do this exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week.
