Digestion problems are very common to people throughout the world. Here are some tips to help you improve your digestion:
Maintain the order of digestibility when eating: Always start your meals with the foods that are the easiest to digest and move slowly towards the more complex ones.
Maintain what and how much you eat: Indigestion can occur for over consumption. Our brain conveys the signal of fullness about 10 minutes after we are actually full. Therefore, stop eating before you feel full and you will feel really full after ten minutes.
Chew your food fully: Avoid talking while eating since it will lead you to incomplete chewing and premature swallowing. When we put oversized pieces of food into our stomachs, it can cause digestive discomfort.
Stay relaxed while eating: Eating in a rush will increase stress; as a result, the digestive process will slow down. Eat in a pleasant and calm atmosphere and make certain that you can devote time to eating.
Practise good eating posture: A bad sitting position will put extra pressure on your digestive organs inside the abdomen which may lead to poor digestion.
Avoid eating late at night: The digestive system slows down and gets ready to relax and rejuvenate in the evening hours. If you put food into the stomach during these late hours, it can’t be properly digested due to a lack of digestive enzymes. This undigested food will remain in your stomach for longer periods of time and may disturb your sleep.
