Five Ways To Kick Travel Constipation
It’s no surprise that traveling can...ahem, back you up to say the least. It throws off your digestion, causes major bloat, & somehow prevents you from pooping for literally days. So rude! Don't let constipation ruin your jet-setting plans. Use these five travel hacks to ensure things are ~smooth sailing next time you hit the road.
1. Drink Water
Hydrate… like it’s your job. Traveling in general, especially on an airplane tends to easily cause dehydration so it’s important to be diligent about your water intake to keep things flowing through you.
2. Booze Responsibly
We're all for letting loose and drinking on vacay so we'll never tell ya to skip the booze. Since alcohol is another cause of dehydration, we always recommend matching each drink with a glass of water. Not only will this help prevent constipation but it will also keep you feeling as fresh as possible the morning after too.
3. Take YGG the Night Before
One way to ensure a morning movement? Our tried and true You Go Girl natural herbal blend! Intentional with each ingredient, this blend not only kicks constipation, but also eases the GI tract, flushes out toxins, and protects the colon from harmful bacteria that may pass through. Psssst our YGG mini travel pouch is the perfect way to bring your poop pills on-the-go ;)
4. Pack a Fiber-Rich Snack, or Two
Skip the airport greasy and unhealthy food. Pack yourself some high-fiber snacks to stay regulated and prepared for when travel hanger hits. My Girl favorites: raw assorted nuts, apples with almond butter packs, and healthy popcorn! What’s that saying an apple a day ensures a poop a day? — something like that.
5. Move Your Body
Traveling involves A LOT of sitting. It’s extra important to keep your body moving to help your digestive system keep moving simultaneously. Instead of sitting while you wait to board your flight, take a couple laps around the airport and when you arrive at your destination squeeze in some walks to explore the surroundings!
Don't let constipation put a damper on your vacation plans and prevent you from sipping a marg in a bikini. Add these five simple steps to your travel routine and feel the major difference.
