Constipation Squatty Potty Anxiety Irregular Bowel Movements

Story Transcript

So one thing that changed my life a few years ago was discovering the Squatty Potty. And because I'm quite an anxious person, I've always had an irregular bowel situation now and again, and I like, knew what a Squatty Potty was, but I was visiting a friend who had one, and I was like, this is amazing. And what's funny is I'm a huge proponent of the Squatty Potty, but I actually don't have one of my own because in my bathroom, my toilet is so close to my shower that I can just kind of put my feet up on the shower and like, it creates the same like position and body dynamic that the Squatty Potty does.

And so I'm super cheap and I’m like, this is just as effective and I just use my shower to do that. And another thing that I found and used like when I’m at my parents’ house or something is just like their tiny little bathroom trash can. I'm like, okay, they don't have one, I’ll pull that up. It just like helps everything go smoothly.

And I think it's kind of fascinating, just in general, that for decades we probably thought we were living really luxuriously, having these like, porcelain seats to defecate on. And then were like, oh, we should really go back to a position that's much more natural. And I highly recommend them.
