Do These 5 Things To Make Ramadan Easier For Your Body

Fasting is not for everybody but as a muslim, the month of Ramadam's fasting is a compulsory tradition. Ramadan is the time of the year when Muslims around the world fast from food and water from sunup until sundown. It's a pretty intense challenge of will and self-control.


Ramadan as one of the 5 pillars of Islam creates time of spiritual reflection, self-improvement, and heightened devotion and worship. The predawn meal called "Suhur" is eaten before the day breaks and the night meal that breaks the fasting is refered to as "Iftar".


In order to make the fasting easier and safe, do these 5 things;


1) Do not skip your Sahur

Sahur being the predawn meal should never be missed because you need food and energy to last you as long as possible before Iftar.


2) Avoid the sun

During fasting make sure you are in a cool and dry place in order to avoid dehydration and draining of energy.


3) Stay Hydrated

Try drinking fluid several times throughout the night especially water even if you aren't feeling too thirsty, this helps the body stay hydrated as long as possible.


4) Free your body

Definitely every body don't feel the same when it gets to fasting, If you're having trouble with fasting and it's really getting to you than you can handle, talk with a dietitian or other healthcare provider for help. But don't break your fasting. 


5) Reward and distract your body

 Use lots of distractions and reward yourself every time you're kind and patient with someone who clearly did not deserve it.


I hope these tips help my muslim brothers in the month of Ramadam.


Ramadam Kareem!
