3 Tips to Stay Healthy After Ramadan

For the over 2 billion Muslims all over the world, Ramadan represents a time of fasting, community and spiritual fervency. Now that Ramadan is over, here are three tips you may want to explore to ensure you stay healthy as you transition back to your normal routine.

Make conscious efforts to eat well

Your appetite may have significantly reduced during Ramadan, as a result of the everyday fasting. Now is the time to pay close attention to your body’s feeding needs and eat well. Ensure your diet is balanced, containing sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables. Avoid overeating or undereating, as both can badly affect your health.

Sleep well

During Ramadan, your sleep pattern may have been altered, due to late night prayers and early morning sahurs. Although, your sleep pattern should naturally regularise after a while. Here are things you can do to re-establish a regular sleep pattern as soon as possible:

  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time of the day
  • Avoid consuming caffeine or any other stimulant before bedtime
  • Keep your bedroom quiet, well organized, and dim to create a comfortable sleeping environment
  • Try taking a warm bath to calm your body before going to bed
