Lifestyle & wellbeing to help with feeling bloated
Another plus for daily exercise, not only does it help deal with bloating it’s also great for weight management – and even a brisk 20-minute walk can make a difference. Cycling, jogging, swimming and team sports all make you sweat, releasing the salts that cause bloating from your body.
Stretches, twists and sit ups can help move trapped wind around your body. There’s even a ‘Wind Relief’ pose in Yoga. Or try a simple ‘Childs Pose’, or ‘Downward dog’ watch our YouTube vlog Yoga with Annie – Basic Stretching Exercises.
The best way to reduce painful wind or menopause bloating is to get rid of the gas from both ends. Lie down on your left side and massage your lower intestine, or on your back and rub your tummy. Lastly, try lying on your back and bringing your knees up to your chest.
