This is evidenced from the results of Basic Health Research in 2013 and 2018, namely an increase in the prevalence of mental emotional disorders in Indonesian population aged ≥ 15 years from 6 percent to 9.8 percent. Stress can have a negative impact on the human body both physically and psychologically. One of the effects of stress on the body is constipation.
