2. Take your Time Eating
Chances are that, when you were a kid, your mom or dad insisted that you eat slowly and properly chew your food before swallowing. That’s important because it can help you avoid choking, but it’s also a good tip for people dealing with irritable bowel syndrome.
You see, taking your time to eat allows your body to better manage digestion. Shoveling food in your mouth is the equivalent of a stampede of kids rushing into school in the morning. Your body, and the teachers, can better manage the situation if everyone moves slowly and methodically.
