5 Reasons Why You Can’t Poop

Published

on

While the majority of us have no trouble openly talking with our friends, family members and coworkers about health issues concerning our cholesterol, heart issues, or other sensitive things. But one topic that is usually off limits is talking about poop. Yes, it’s probably not something you want to bring up at the dinner table, but something like constipation is an essential issue that concerns our health.

Constipation happens to all of us at some point, and it’s a shame that most people fail to open up and discuss about it when it is happening to them. The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons did a research study and found out that 80% of Americans have had trouble pooping at some point or another. If you’ve ever experienced this for yourself and wanted to understand why it happened, fear not, as we’ve compiled a list for you providing you with 5 reasons why you can’t poop:

1. You Don’t Consuming Enough Fiber

A report from the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons showed that from the 80% of Americans who suffer from constipation, a third of them have constipation caused by low fiber. Nutritionists’ advice that you consume fruits at least one fruit every day. They also recommend that you include vegetables in every meal you have. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber which reduces constipation hence; you will not have any more pooping problems.

2. You May Be Suffering From Dehydration

Dehydration is another reason why you might be having pooping problems. When you are dehydrated, you don’t have enough quantity of water in your body. Water is necessary for pooping since it helps the stool to move easily via the colon. Doctors and nutritionists gave their recommendation in a new blogpost that you take at least 8 glasses of water every day. Therefore, if you are having a pooping problem, try and increase the amount of water intake and you should hopefully see some changes.

3. You’re Not Moving Around Enough

If you do not engage your body in activities often, you are likely to experience some pooping problems. When your body is active and in motion, the colon also moves. When the colon moves, it becomes easy to move the stool too. Therefore, it is recommended that you become active, preferably working out regularly. If you are having poop problems, start working out and see if this helps unbind you.

4. You Are Using Narcotics

There are medicines that lead to constipation. Narcotics are one of those medicines. Narcotics are mostly pain relievers. They include codeine, Morphine, Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol amongst others. In case your doctor has prescribed any of the narcotics and you notice that you are having problems when pooping, you need to inform them so that they can advise on what you are supposed to do, to solve the problem. If you are using narcotic drugs illegally, you should stop with immediate effect since it could not only lead to pooping problems, but it could be dangerous for your health and your well being.

5. You May Have A Health Condition

One of the reasons why you could be experiencing pooping problems is that there is a possibility you have a health condition such as thyroid disorder or even diabetes. These are some of the conditions that can lead to transit constipation, which involves your colon moving more slowly than it should be. Therefore, if you have tried all the tips above and they have not worked for you, you need to seek medical attention. Get tested for these conditions as early as you can for early treatment.

At the end of the day, pooping is a part of the biological process that happens in a human body. Therefore, if you do not poop, you are interfering with your body’s system. There are even people who hold it in especially when they are at the wrong places and time. This could lead to muscle confusions and constipation in return.

So make sure you do the right things to make sure your body is functioning as it should be, and pooping is one of them!

6 Essential Life Skills For The Man Who Wants To Be In The Know

Published

on

In order to stand out among a sea of average men, you need to bring your skills up. You’ll need to work hard to become a more well-rounded human being, knowing not just things to impress the women in your life, but skills that are practical and allow you to be more prepared in any situation or even help you further your career.

Below, we’ve highlighted six essential life skills that every man needs to know in order to step their game up, helping you get a bit closer to becoming “perfect”.

How To Tie A Bowtie

Your casual daily attire may see you rocking the grunge look complete with ripped jeans and a pair of converse. Or you may keep it sporty and wear the jersey of your favorite NBA team. But when you need to make your mark in a formal occasion, it’s time to bring out the big guns and rock a suit. Combine it with a pair of sharp shoes, a chunky watch and a dapper waistcoat with a bowtie instead of a standard tie and turn it into a tuxedo. Not only is it useful for wearing a formal do, but you could also mix it up in the workplace. As The Black Tux’s guide to tieing a bowtie notes, you’ll also be ready to wear one on your wedding day.

How To Play Card Games

It’s not just what you are wearing that makes you sophisticated, it is also about what you know and how you are able to entertain. A common pastime of mature, distinguished men? Playing cards. This is thanks to the core principles of these card games, as Betway Casino’s explainer of blackjack rules suggests. For starters, you have to know when to take risks and when to play it safe, knowing when to fold or even to split. It also helps you to improve your confidence, as you’re able to double down when you’re feeling good about your current hand. Try learning blackjack, poker and baccarat in order to be able to impress.

How To Speak In Public

Speaking of confidence, being comfortable speaking in public is a very useful skill to have. You need to be able to speak with confidence and knowledge – to really know what you are talking about. Crucial to being a good public speaker, says The Art of Charm, is to eliminate any filler words such as “umm” and “ahh” and to relax your body, releasing the tension in your muscles as these can affect your tone of voice. The ability to speak authoritatively and with confidence not only helps you in the workplace and getting your ideas across, but it helps you to make a strong impression with, for example, your partner’s parents.

How To Poach Eggs

Eggs are great. Not only are they an egg-cellent source of protein, but they make for a healthy breakfast that’s a little bit fancier than just pouring yourself a bowl of cereal, so they’re a good way to impressing your friends or date. Poached eggs are also the core part of many upmarket dishes, including Eggs Benedict, vegetable fritters, or Turkish eggs. Making a poached egg is not even that difficult. According to BBC Good Food’s poached egg recipe, it’s only five steps. What’s more, they only take a few minutes to make. It might be a little tricky at first, but once you’re there, you’ll be a master of one of the most highly sought after culinary skills.

How To Build A Campfire

If you didn’t take part in Boy Scouts when you were a kid, chances are, you’ve probably never learned how to build a campfire. But knowing how to build a campfire is an invaluable tool in case you break down in the middle of nowhere and find yourself stranded, or for a romantic camping trip. According to The Art of Manliness, the key steps to building a campfire are to collect several different types of wood and stack them correctly. Simple to learn, but difficult to master – you’ll want to practice this beforehand rather than relying on your theoretical knowledge when you’re in need.

How To Sew A Button

We’ve given you some suit-wearing tips in this post, and in the past we’ve shown you how to select a high-quality shirt, but what happens if that shirt gets a snag? What happens if you put on a few extra pounds and you end up popping a button? Learning how to sew a button will let you fix that shirt in a pinch and it could save you money on taking that shirt to a tailor. Watch the video above for a step-by-step.

Becoming a distinguished and sophisticated man is an ongoing process. You’ll need to not just take on these skills but practice and work hard on them too. Once you’ve mastered them, it’s off to the next challenge!

SpaceX Is Sending A Japanese Billionaire On A Trip Around The Moon

Published

BFR Stage Separation

A few days back, SpaceX tweeted that they had signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard their BFR launch vehicle, with a cryptic Japanese flag emoji providing the only clue as to who the passenger might be.

Today, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk took to the stage at a press event at SpaceX’s headquarters and announced that Japanese fashion magnate Yusaku Maezawa would be the first person to make the journey around the moon. The BFR Lunar Mission will last an estimated four to five days and will take place as early as 2023.

Maezawa is the 42-year-old Japanese billionaire founder of the custom clothing online retailer ZOZO, with a reported net worth of $3.6 billion. Needless to say, he’s got the wherewithal to afford such an extravagant expenditure.

BFR Passing The Moon

“Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the moon,” Maezawa said during the press conference. “Just staring at the moon fueled my imagination; it’s always there and has continued to inspire humanity. That is why I do not pass up this opportunity to see the moon up close.”

But that’s not all. Maezawa is inviting six to eight artists from around the world to join him on this mission to the Moon. The billionaire said he will invited painters, sculptors, musicians, and architects from around the world. Upon their return all he requests is that they create a work of art using their stellar trek as inspiration.

“These artists will be asked to create something when they return to Earth,” said Maezawa. “These masterpieces will inspire the dreamer inside all of us. Needless to say, we’ve always been inspired by the Moon. Take for example, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and The Beatles’ Mr. Moonlight.”

BFR In Flight

If successful, Maezawa and the people who join him will be the first humans to travel to the Moon since the final Apollo mission in 1972. But before history is made, the BFR needs to be constructed, and they’ve got five years to do so. An ambitious time table, but Musk and team believe they can do it.

The BFR Lunar Mission is the first step in Elon Musk’s master plan, as he wants humanity “to become a multi-planet civilization as soon as possible” and that he hopes to “make people excited about the future.”

Mission accomplished Elon, 2023 can’t get here soon enough!
