To treat occasional constipation, stay hydrated, which helps soften stool, making it pass through your system more easily. Be sure to also include high-fiber foods in your diet like oats, brown rice, apples, apricots, berries and kale. Exercise is helpful because it increases your heart rate, causing intestinal muscles to contract, moving stools through faster- and stress relief is an added bonus.
If these lifestyle changes don’t help, you can try an over-the-counter laxative.
