Drink lots of water
Water plays a key role in our digestion. It helps break down the food in our stomach, aids in dissolving nutrients, and prevents constipation. Furthermore, it helps keeps the digestive system and colon clean and healthy. So you're not only quenching your thirst when you drink water, but you're also doing your body a huge favor.

lining of your stomach and cause symptoms of heartburn. If you can stay off it altogether, like myself, then that's one more favor you're doing
Drink less alcohol
