In brief: Avoid certain foods
There are certain foods that have a tendency to cause constipation.
Dairy products and cheeses to name a few. Increasing fluid in the diet, increasing the amounts of fresh fruits, vegetables, and roughage in the diet all help. It can be done without medications or laxatives.

In brief: Stool softeners
I usually recommend a high fiber diet such as prune juice and/or stool softeners such as colace twice daily and/or MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily work well.
