After your morning "routine" take an immodium. That will calm you through the day, if you find things act up. Don't take it before, or you'll feel like to need to go and can't, and that's awful. But one should wear off by the next morning. Or try 1/2 a pill if it works too good.
Try to resist food and alcohol that might create a problem for you! whatever that might be.
