Changes in Routine

Traveling often means changing your routine, including your sleeping  patterns, eating habits, and physical activity. This disruption of your  routine can lead to constipation, as your digestive system may not be  able to adapt quickly enough to the changes.



Traveling can also lead to dehydration,  as you may drink less water than you are used to, and the air  conditioning in airplanes, trains, and buses can also contribute to  dehydration. Dehydration can cause the stool to become complex and to  challenge to pass, leading to constipation.



Traveling can also be stressful, and stress can significantly impact  your digestive system. Stress can cause the muscles in your intestines  to contract, making it difficult to have a bowel movement.
