Fasting during Ramadan can be difficult for many as it significantly alters our daily schedule. After all, we are creatures of habit. This is why we’re sharing tips to increase your productivity and alertness during the holy month!

1-     Plan It Out, Commit to It, and Keep Doing It!

Everyone struggles with the most work during the first week of Ramadan. Our bodies are still adjusting to fasting, shifting bedtimes, and working without food or snacks to energise and comfort us as we slave away. So, it might be a good idea to write down your daily schedule and include a reasonable timeline that can handle the changes that Ramadan brings.

Even the brief nap you require after getting home from your long workday should be scheduled in advance. But you should limit your naps to an hour and a half at most because, let’s face it, we don’t want to spend the entire day sleeping!

2-     Don’t Be Too Hard on Yourself

Although we should be more energetic in excitement for the celebratory month, in theory, low morale frequently accompanies us. But that’s because we are convinced that Ramadan means engaging in less work, relaxing, and being more spiritual throughout the holy month instead. And while we do wish that was possible, the work doesn’t stop!

But don’t stress or get overwhelmed by your setbacks or nearing deadlines. You can stop the pattern of procrastination by reciting your mantra to motivate yourself to get things done and make efficient use of your time. Then, give yourself some credit, and believe you can do it — even when Ramadan is over. You’ll be surprised by the remarkable results!

3-     Limit Your Intake of Sugary Foods

While sweets can put you in a good mood, they will make you less productive. We all know how lazy we can get after a sugar rush! But don’t panic; you can have a tiny dessert a few times a week rather than going without any sweets at all.

But save your sweet tooth for the weekend when you’re at home with your family binging the newest Ramadan shows. This way, controlling your cravings and urges to overeat won’t be as challenging, even after Ramadan.
