How To Have a Safe and Healthy Fasting During the Ramadhan Seasonerica
There are various fasting methods that we are familiar with and they are mostly health related.
Nevertheless, the fasting that is done during the Ramadhan season is an act of reinforcing gratitude and to strengthen faith. The fasting period starts from dawn and ends at sunset. Though this is the case, the days can be short or long depending where we are in the world.
One of the challenges that most face during the Ramadhan month is having low energy levels and fatigue while having to still carry out usual daily routines and responsibilities.
It is also during this time that many of us tend to neglect our health either by over-indulging or not getting the essential nourishment our body needs to stay energized.
Here are some useful ways to have a safe and healthy fasting during the Ramadhan month.
Keep Hydrated When You Can
Keep hydrated when you can and remember that drinking the essential amount of water can keep you energized, leave you in a better mood and helps to suppress hunger naturally.
This is because studies have found that being dehydrated can affect your mood and energy levels, as those who keep hydrated are generally calmer and happier.
Find it hard to stay hydrated during Ramadhan? Try keeping a bottle of drinking water close by when you are sleeping and take a drink when you can throughout the night.
You can also stock up on foods that are high in water content like strawberries, cucumber, watermelon, tomatoes and oranges to keep hydrated.
Don’t Ever Skip Suhoor
Skipping suhoor is equivalent to skipping breakfast and lunch altogether which can cause more harm to our health and trigger unwanted health complications like having gastric.
Having a meal during suhoor, which is the meal in the morning before the fasting begins for the day ahead, is essential in providing us with the energy to take on the day.
The key is also to eat the right meals that are nourishing for the body and mind. Besides simple carbs, also opt for foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, healthy fat and protein.
Watch What You Eat
Try not to go overboard with the food especially during breaking of fast.
It’s best to not over-indulged in oily and sugary foods and to remind ourselves that it’s all about moderation during the Ramadhan season.
Be a little more selective if possible and choose to eat foods that are nourishing and provides the essential nutrients your body needs to function at its best.
Also try to avoid foods that are rich in sodium as these foods are dehydrating and will leave you sluggish throughout the day.
Know Your Own Health
