There's nothing worse than finishing a delicious meal only to cap it off with a stomachache. We've previously identified some of the inconspicuous foods that make you feel bloated and uncomfortable, but there are other ways to relieve indigestion without changing your diet. Case in point: these stretches from The Little Things, which were designed to relieve stomach pain and digestive issues after a filling meal. Grab your yoga mat; you can banish belly bloat in just 20 minutes with the following three stretches:

1. Lying Down Knee Twist

Lie flat on your back and bend your knees 90 degrees. Spread your arms flat, twist your hips to one side, face your head the other direction and hold for 30 seconds. Rotate to the other side and hold for 30 more seconds.

2. Lying Down Knee Rock

Lie flat on your back. Hold your knees against your chest and gently rock side to side. Rotate in a circle for 30 seconds in each direction.

3. Seated Knee Twist

Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you. Bend you left knee and cross your right elbow over. Hold this position for 30 seconds, then reverse.
