Everything changes during Ramadan; working hours, eating diets, our own habits and lifestyle. We have been seeing the same habits and mistakes over and over each Ramadan.
Here are 4 habits you need to stop doing during Ramadan:
Being Too Angry:
Fasting shouldn’t be an excuse for throwing a tantrum anywhere during the day. On the contrary, fasting is about controlling yourself, not letting your hunger and thirst take over your human morals. Threatening others that you will fast because of something you don’t please is getting childish. Fasting is controlling your hunger, thirst and attitude.
Eating too much:
Fasting is not easy, specially the last few hours before Iftar and you feel like you are about to die out of hunger. Extreme hunger can lead to eat way too much from Iftar to Sohour, not keeping in mind the health risks you put yourself through; never mind the fact that excessive eating goes against what the holy month is all about. Also, your body is not capable of saving up food or water for later, over eating and drinking won’t make it easier for you the next day.
Remember that you fast by your own choice; judging others because they don’t fast or they are from another religion who happen to eat or drink in the straight isn’t very mature. You fast for spiritual and religious reasons; shaming others isn’t spiritual nor religious.
Although we get less working hours during Ramadan, some people remain unproductive. Fasting was never an excuse to procrastinate during your day; being productive is actually a part of the ritual. Try to create a routine for yourself during the day to be as productive as you can; make time for work, prayers and TV shows.
Don’t use fasting as an excuse for anything negative; it is the holy month, so make the best of it.
We Tried Careem White Taxi And Here’s the Real Deal
Careem is a transportation company that has been operating for a couple of years in Egypt. Careem has succeeded to make our lives easier by saving us lots of hustle; but made us go crazy sometimes while dealing with captains. The application recently released the scooter feature which allows you to order a scooter instead of a car; and recently the creators behind the application has released a new feature which is a white taxi! You might wonder, but don’t we use Careem to escape from white taxis and tax drivers? well, the answer is yes.. but (you know there is always a but) the white taxi feature from Careem should be different, right?
We’ve tried the new feature ourselves and here is what we think
Unlike other taxis, the first thing I’ve noticed was the AC, it rarely happens around the capital to get into a cab and find the AC working, that was a huge plus. Taxi drivers now can use the GPS which means the driver doesn’t have to go around claiming or pretending that he got lost or doesn’t know the way. Another plus about the new white taxi feature is you don’t have to deal with taxi drivers rejections anymore!
What’s more, the taxi condition itself is actually pretty good, the only negative thing about the white taxi is that it isn’t always available or might take a long time till the driver arrives, but we bet this problem will be fixed pretty soon with more taxis joining.
Not to mention that the white taxi is cheaper than the usual Careem value car, which can save some money specially in long trips!
How to Experience the Best Ramdan
Ramadan is a chance for so many people to reorganize and rebuild their lives and relationships in so many aspects. And we have a whole list of ideas that will help you get the most out of Ramadan.
Here we go:
Create a To Do list:
You can find already designed to dos in stationery store, or you can spend sometime with yourself and design your own to do calendar. Write down the things that you would like to achieve and accomplish this Ramadan whether on the physical or emotional level; organize the dates and time for the activities you want to do from prayers to visiting family member and friends. Each one of us knows their routine and habits best, so try to create a to do list that is logical and you know it will work for you.
Stick to a diet:
Fasting for long hours can be very tempting to eat and drink whatever in front of you with no consideration to your health or body. If you don’t want to lose or gain weight during the holy month; at least do not neglect your health. Track your eating habits during the month and try to find a diet that works best for you and your health.
Whether you choose to exercise before or after Iftar, you have to make sure that your iftar and sohour include carbs so you would have the energy to work out. Not to mention that fasting doesn’t go against exercising.
Reconnect with family members:
Ramadan is a great chance to call the family members and friends you haven’t spoken to some time. We don’t need to tell you that meeting along with family is a part of Ramadan. Invite them over for Iftar or organize one somewhere in a Ramadan tent, and spend some quality time with them catching up.
Have an Iftar dish party:
Sharing food and gathering for Iftar can strengthen bonds between individuals. Set up an Iftar dish party with your friends, maybe do it in someone’s apartment or rooftop; you can also go further and coordinate an Iftar dish party with your work mates and maybe at your gym as well.
You can customize and add to this list as many activities as you can!
