In brief: See below

1. Make sure to drink lots of water daily to ensure proper hydration in colon.
2. Exercise (not necessarily vigorously) daily to help with motion of colon. 3. May try magnesium citrate liquid, polyethylene glycol liquid (e.g. Miralax), and dulcolax suppository. 4. Reduce stress in life - it strongly affects GI system.
