Fasting in Ramadan for 30 days can become intense. So we rounded up some top tips to keep you healthy spiritually and physically during this blessed month. Ramadan is a time of worship, but we’ve got to also look after our health, here are some survival tips for fasting.
Top 5 Fasting Survival Tips:
1. Stay Hydrated
It’s important to keep your body hydrated, so instead of downing a can of fizzy at Iftar, down a glass of water.
2. Try not to overeat
As tempting as it may be to eat everything on the Iftar table, moderation is best, That will allow you to be able to pray comfortably and even exercise before or after iftar.
3. Keep yourself occupied
Try to occupy yourself with ibadah (worship), even if you are working as that’s also ibadah.
4. Sleep well
As much as night prayers are recommended, you still have a duty towards your body to sleep well, so try to plan short naps during the day.
5. Stay Motivated
Fasting as a community really helps motivation while we still may be in lockdown or isolation, it is important to remind yourself of the reasons you are fasting and keep yourself motivated for the whole month.
