Squat rather than sit on the toilet. This is the natural position for humans. Piles, haemorrhoids, varicose veins, distended colon.

Squatting definitely helps relieve the pressure on fissures or haemorrhoids, and the tendency to keep breaking them open every time you have the tiniest bit of constipation. Also, whilst squatting is not exactly exercise, I find when I squat every day, it tends to stretch my calf muscles, and some of the muscles around my pelvis that don't get stretched when I am sitting all day. It feels good.
