However, we face difficulties maintaining our usual routine when fasting. A person’s ability to stay active depends largely on their physical condition. Nowadays we need to multitask, we need to juggle our family life, work life, and our personal life. Today we cover just this; tips on how to stay active in Ramadan. You can apply these tips anywhere, be it in the office or at home.
Create a List of Everyday Chores
Appropriate planning is needed to complete any work properly. So, create a list of all the things you need to do in a day the night before. Thanks to the list, you’ll have a better idea of what tasks need tending to as well as allocate proper time for each job. You’ll also be more prepared to decide which undertakings need to be prioritized. This will help you finish up all your tasks in a timely manner without any hassle. You won’t feel Ramadan’s pressure and will probably even complete everything before time. With this tip on how to stay active in Ramadan, you’ll be able to find the perfect balance between your religious responsibilities and everyday responsibilities.
Set Segmented Goals
A great idea for completing all your daily chores and responsibilities in time is to assign a time of day for each of them so that you can take your time to finish them one by one. That way, you can complete anything you might’ve missed when you have free time. One of the benefits of breaking up big tasks into smaller ones is that you won’t feel the work pressure, but you’ll find everything finished in time.
Create a Task Routine for Yourself
We tend to be more active during seheri in Ramadan than at other times. That’s probably because we have a full meal at this time. Since we stay most active in the morning, anything we do during that time tends to be finished rather quickly, from writing an official email to doing chores around the home or reading the Quran or working on a personal project. Maybe that is why many prefer to take rest after seheri and feel more comfortable working from iftar to seheri. The body feels more energized after we eat. It is important to stay active during this time in the month of Ramadan. Which is why you need a proper routine to finish your tasks properly.
Save Some Personal Time
It is normal to get tired when you work all day while fasting and keeping in tune with the ticking of the clock. Whether you are in the office or at home, take a little break from work for a small nap. It will help you re-energize for the rest of the day. If there’s no scope for a nap then spend the time your own way. Watch your favorite show on TV or communicate with your friends via video or SMS. The main thing is to give yourself some time, no matter how.
Healthy Seheri and a Light Iftar
Even with our mind and stomach wanting the same thing, we can’t always eat whatever we want, especially during the month of Ramadan. If we want to stay healthy, we need to consider what will happen once the food is consumed even before we begin eating. Every type of food has a direct effect on our body’s condition. Eating too much and eating friend & oily foods make us feel lazy and tired. That is why it is very important to have a balanced diet for seheri and iftar. Carbohydrate and protein-filled foods, fruits, and vegetables should be present in a balanced diet. Eating this type of food during seheri and iftar will help you stay active during Ramadan easily.
A healthy eating habit plays a big role in helping you maintain your everyday life schedule during Ramadan when our responsibilities increase quite a bit. Even though office time is reduced, the workload stays the same. The same goes for our home; the work feels like it doubles. That is why staying active is so important.
