How to Poop Like a Boss
No one wants to walk around with a bloated stomach especially in the summer. One of the best ways to avoid this issue is eating right, including sufficient fiber in your diet and proper elimination.
What is also extremely effective but often overlooked are posture changing devices .
These move your colon into the ideal position to go without straining.
While Americans and other Westerners have always sat on the toilet, people in Asia and Africa squat when they go. In these cultures, people consider squatting to poop.
The problem with sitting is that it keeps the kink in your lower bowel. That forces you to work harder to push out the poop. Squatting relaxes your puborectalis muscle more and straightens out your colon, giving the poop a straight route out. As a result, you can go more easily with less straining.
When it comes to emptying your bowels, there isn’t necessarily a single “best” position that applies to everyone. However, there are a few positions that may be more beneficial. Here are a few options you can try:
Squatting position: Squatting can help align your rectum and colon in a straighter line, allowing for easier elimination. You can achieve this position by using a squatting stool or placing your feet on a small footrest while sitting on the toilet.
Elevated seat position: Elevating the seat can help simulate a squatting position. You can use a specially designed raised toilet seat or add a stack of books or a step stool under your feet to raise your knees higher.
Leaning forward: Leaning forward while seated can help to increase the angle between your rectum and colon, facilitating easier bowel movements. You can lean forward by resting your forearms on your thighs or by using your hands to support yourself on the toilet seat.
Relaxation and breathing techniques: Sometimes, the key to emptying your bowels effectively lies in relaxation. Deep breathing exercises and taking your time can help relax the muscles involved in the process.
