7 Healthy Ways to Wake Up Less Bloated

After a year like these past ones, we all deserve a little indulgence. But now is also the perfect time to examine your goals and prioritize self-care.

Taking charge of your daily rituals is inspiring and empowering! These seven simple lifestyle changes for a flatter stomach will help you wake up feeling lighter, brighter and rejuvenated.

1. Move up your dinnertime

If you are feeling a little heavy or bloated, it’s important to give your body time to rest, digest, and heal. I love to do this through a little fast, which isn’t as scary as it sounds—just make sure to have dinner no later than 7pm to give your body a 14-hour window before you consume more food. When I give my body time to fully process my food and allow my system time to rest, I wake up with a flatter stomach and all-around lighter feeling.

2. Roll it out

Throw a few twisting and deep inverted moves into your evening rolling, stretch or yoga sesh and you’ll wake up feeling flatter and more toned. Twisting, folding moves on the roller can work wonders for constipation, bloating, gas, and bowel efficiency. You can also give yourself a relieving intestinal massage by deep breathing and applying gentle pressure to the tummy.

3. Spice up Your tea

If you are feeling bloated and want to wake up with a flatter stomach, add some ginger to your nighttime tea! Ginger is not only delicious, but it can relax the stomach, calm digestive spasms, and banish your bloating, nausea, gas, and indigestion. I just chop and peel a few slices of fresh ginger, then simmer them in boiling water to make a delicious, soothing cup before bed.

If you are feeling bloated, constipated, or gassy, fennel is fabulous for relaxing the colon, releasing excess water weight, and stimulating the secretion of digestive enzymes that healthily lower our appetite. Try snacking on fennel seeds or adding a few seeds to your tea before bed; It will taste like a soothing, nighttime licorice treat.

4. Hop on the Rebounder

A good bounce session on the rebounder it’s a great way to get the heart pumping, break a sweat, and bounce the toxins right out of the body. Rebounding isn’t just cardio, though, it actually enhances your digestion and elimination. So, if you’re feeling bloated or heavy, try a little evening bounce on your rebounder, skip some rope or dance it out to your favorite music!

5. Sip broth for dinner

If I am trying to reset my body after a weekend of splurges, I love to have a cup of hot vegan broth for dinner. Especially during the cold months, it warms you up, soothes your stomach, and really helps in the fatter tummy department.

6. Take probiotics (or have yogurt for lunch)

It’s so important to make sure you get your “good” gut bacteria because it can actually alleviate digestive problems and even boost your immunity. Sometimes digestive issue can cause the worst bloat, and make us feel heavier than we actually are. My favorite way to get probiotics is through vegan kefir/yogurt, or cultured foods, incorporate them into your daily diet as they provide a delicious dose of good bacteria! Alternatively, you can take probiotics through supplements. I like to take mine in the morning with lemon water.

7. Hydrate

Lemon juice doesn’t just spice up your water, it actually works wonders for your digestion. Lemon water alkalizes the body, which flushes out toxins, cleanses your liver, improves your digestion, and boosts your immune system, thanks to the vitamin C. Enjoy a warm cup of lemon water before bed, and wake up feeling healthier and lighter than ever.

You know the motto: More Action, Less Blablablabla.
