Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. It is the time of purifying our soul, mind and body from impurities and to focus on the worship of our Lord.
Fasting during the month of Ramadan can be good for your health if it is done correctly. As the Ramadan fast lasts from dawn till dusk, the body's energy can be replaced in the pre-dawn and dusk meals. Treating the non-fasting hours of the day as the time to meet your body’s nutritional needs will help the fasting hours go more smoothly. ‘Overeating’ and having ‘feasts’ lead to decreased energy levels throughout the day. A little understanding and planning of what the body requires in terms of nutrition will help us carrying out our fasts in a better way. Here are some health tips, which if followed might help you boost your energy levels over the next few weeks.
