During Ramadan, the thing that people mostly complain about is fatigue. Everyone is always tired, which basically puts them in a bad mood. But here’s a few proven ways to stay fresh during this holy month.
1. Water, water water
I know, this one is a bit cliché. But our bodies are made up of more than 50% water, and during fast we tend to get a little dehydrated. The best way to make sure you get the right amount of water is to drink two glasses every 3 hours after you break your fast. Trust me, your body will thank you.
2. Watch what you eat!
We all know that food = calories and calories = energy. But there are bad sources of energy as well as good, and knowing where to get the right kind of energy is important. For example, one fried ground beef sambusa has about 100 calories while a bowl of vegetable soup has about 50.
Although the soup has less calories, it’ll give you a better boost than the sambusa!
3. Take-up some yoga
Yoga is an exercise you can do any time of the day. During Ramadan, we tend to get a little too lazy, and by taking-up yoga you’ll maintain your energy levels and clear your mind. This is an awesome way of spending some spare time before maghreb.
4. Try to limit your caffeine intake
Although coffee is a must during Ramadan, it has some negative effects on your body. It may give you a spike of energy, but mostly it just dehydrates you some more and will eventually make you more tired.
5. Get enough sleep
This is a really important thing to do. Although staying up late and watching Kuwaiti shows is tradition, doing it on the expense of your sleep is just not worth it. Getting a good night’s sleep will make sure you wake up feeling refreshed and energized!
