With the vacation season upon us, many of us start planning vacations and road trips to visit family and friends.
What a joy it is to finally check into your hotel room, have leisurely conversations over dinner or go sight-seeing with loved ones! Yet, let’s be honest, not everything that comes with your vacation includes sandals, sandy beaches or sunshine.
During the course of a trip, sometimes we have to deal with a change in time zones, new and different foods or not drinking enough fluids. For some folks, this can occasionally lead to constipation. Best-selling author and international travel expert Joel Widzer, Psy.D, agrees, adding, “Even once travelers arrive safely at their destination, they often don’t anticipate the possible effects of different cuisines and local foods. I always suggest they bring along a laxative to be on the safe side.”
Important tips to keep in mind that can help avoid becoming constipated are to stay hydrated, eat well-balanced meals and not ignore the urge to have a bowel movement. These are not only a good recommendations while traveling, but also good practices to follow at home. However, if you still happen to experience constipation, try Senokot tablets.
