4 Habits to quit this Ramadan
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.
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!
4 Thing We Are Guilty Of Doing in the Morning
Most of us with full time jobs neglect the necessity of a good morning routine. You can’t deny the fact that we usually wake up last minute, running around our rooms like maniacs and rush to work. We unapologetically commit so many mistakes each morning that is completely unhealthy to us.
Here are 4 things to avoid doing in the morning:
Hit the snooze button over and over:
We know too well the temptations of the snooze button, this invention tricked us into believing that 10 more minutes of sleep is such a good idea. However, snooze button might be doing you more harm than good. You might think that sleeping for extra minutes will make you wake up more refreshed, while reality is you trick your body into a new sleeping cycle that waking up from it after few minutes can make you feel groggy instead of refreshed.
Checking you phone:
We are all guilty of doing this. I don’t exactly know the reason behind this habit specially that probably the last thing we do before going to sleep is checking our phone and scroll through different social media platforms at least twice; so, I don’t get what you could possible miss during sleep. Checking your phone the first thing in the morning can cause stress and sets your day off to a negative start.
Coffee should not be the first thing that enters your body after waking up. What your body actually needs is water; after sleeping for 7 or 8 hours, your body becomes hydrated. Make sure to drink water that has the same temperature as your room; as drinking colder water first thing in the morning shock your system and prevent all the possible benefits.
Let’s just agree that having two cups of coffee in the morning is not considered breakfast. It is true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even if you are one of these of people who aren’t very hungry in the morning, make sure to grab a fruit, yogurt or some oatmeal. Some studies show that having breakfast can prevent diabetes, heart disease, and improve performance and memory.
