Gut Health: Building Daily Habits for a Happier Digestive System

Apr 9, 2024

Maintaining a healthy gut is crucial to our overall well-being. Our digestive system plays a significant role in various bodily functions, including nutrient absorption, immune system support, and mental health. To nurture our digestive system and promote optimal gut health, incorporating a few daily habits can make a significant difference. In this article, we will explore these habits that allow you to take care of your digestive system effectively.

1. Hydration: A Gut’s Best Friend

Water is the elixir of life, and this holds true for our gut health too. Staying well-hydrated is essential for proper digestion, as water helps break down food particles and aids in nutrient absorption. Aim to drink at least 2 liters of water daily to keep your digestive system functioning optimally.

2. Mindful Eating: Chew Your Way to Gut Health

Slowing down and chewing your food thoroughly aids in proper digestion. When we eat quickly, we are more likely to swallow air, leading to bloating and discomfort. Additionally, thoroughly chewing food helps break it down into smaller particles, making it easier for your stomach and intestines to process.

3. High-Fiber Diet: Feed Your Gut Flora

Fiber is like fuel for your gut bacteria, promoting a diverse and healthy gut microbiome. Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes ensures a steady intake of dietary fiber. This habit supports bowel regularity and can help prevent gastrointestinal issues like constipation and diarrhea.

4. Reduce Processed Foods: A Detriment to Gut Health

Excessive consumption of processed foods can negatively impact your gut. These products often contain high amounts of sugar, unhealthy fats, and preservatives that disrupt the balance of beneficial gut bacteria. Opt for whole, unprocessed foods to provide your gut with the essential nutrients it needs.

5. Probiotics: Nurturing Gut Health

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that support a healthy gut. Incorporate probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi into your diet. If necessary, consider supplementation to ensure an adequate intake of these beneficial microbes for a thriving gut.

6. Regular Exercise: Boost Your Digestion

Staying active has numerous benefits, including improved digestion. Exercise helps stimulate intestinal contractions, ensuring proper movement of food through the digestive tract. Engaging in moderate physical activities, such as walking or jogging, can significantly aid in maintaining a healthy digestive system.

7. Manage Stress: Keep Your Gut Calm

Stress has a direct impact on our gut health. Chronic stress can alter the balance of gut bacteria, leading to various digestive issues. Incorporate stress management techniques like meditation, deep breathing exercises, or yoga into your daily routine to promote a calm and healthy gut.


Taking care of your digestive system is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being. By adopting these daily habits, such as staying well-hydrated, mindful eating, following a high-fiber diet, reducing processed foods, incorporating probiotics, regular exercise, and managing stress, you can significantly improve your gut health. Remember, a healthy gut results in a happier you, so prioritize nurturing your digestive system for optimal health and vitality.

My husband suffers from severe leg cramps. And not restless leg syndrome. I stoped to talk to Nikki at HOPE LIVES! I was tell her about my husbands horrible leg cramps. She asked me if he would use PROPER CANNA NATURALS? The one Ms. Nikki... suggested was a cream the name is Rocky Mountain chill. It’s a muscle gel. I brought it home he looked at it two or three days tried it and almost instantly it took his cramps away. He spent two days with no leg cramps whatsoever using that cream. We ran out of the sample I have ordered the big bottle and I can’t wait for it to get here. It was hard to imagine that some thing all natural could do what it did for him and he feel better and get sleep. Not only him but me because he was not up and down all night . Thank you Nikki for the recommendation. It’s the best. I will be looking into their other products. Sincerely Mikieread more

I love my monthly subscription to Proper Canna Naturals! The soft gels are part of my daily routine and the Rocky Mountain Chill feels good on a sore back. All of their products are made with Organic Colorado hemp and lots of love 🥰

I recently switched from another big box brand of CBD oil to Proper Canna. Within a few weeks I knew I had made a really great decision. My back use to hurt every day of the week. I have about 1-2 days a month after heavy exercise now that I will... get moderate pain. The customer service is stellar and the product ships to your home very quickly. I love the packaging and supporting a small business, all while feeling better inside and out. I do have to rave about the Rocky Mountain Chill Gel. It can kick a headache is 10 minutes! My husband and I both absolutely love it. I would highly recommend Proper Canna to anyoneread more

As an avid proponent of grass roots businesses that do it right. Not only have I tried most of the products Proper Canna produces but I have incorporated most of their products into my lifestyle, permanently. The muscle gel has come through for... me when my body aches after an intense yoga session or a long bike ride and if I’m cramping. The tincture supports my overall well being and keeps me focused and on more

I use the cooling muscle gel and love it! As a triathlete there are days that every inch of my body aches and the cooling muscle gel helps tremendously with recovery. I’ve tried other products and this is by far the best!
