Are you ready for Ramadan this year? But if you’re new, Ramadan is the time where healthy muslims from all around the world abstain themselves from drinking and eating for an extended period of time. The fast usually ranges from 8 – 18 hours for over 29 to 30 days.
While these fasts are religiously and spiritually motivated, they do have a great impact on the overall health of a person’s body and mental well-being.
Therefore, it is important for those who will be fasting this year, to equip yourselves with healthy tips that will help you endure the fast with such ease.
Fuel Up During Sahur
Before you begin your fast, it is encouraged for you to Sahur or in other words eat an early breakfast. This step in fasting helps to curb one’s hunger throughout the day.
However, breakfast should be loaded with healthy nutrients and macros that can keep you fuller for longer, such as sandwiches, protein shakes, dates or even rice.
Whatever you choose, make sure the food contains high amounts of fiber, carbs and protein to keep you fueled and moving for the day.
You should drink plenty of water during Sahur as well as Iftar. The water will help rehydrate your body after a long day of not drinking enough water.
Keep in mind to avoid sugary drinks while taking the first sip; this might lead to dehydration. But feel free to drink whatever you want afterwards.
Fasting can be tiring especially with the humid weather in Singapore, thus it is crucial for you to keep your body well hydrated.
Get Enough Sleep
You will be waking up an hour early during Ramadan. So, sleeping early the night before can help you feel well rested and not restless.
Having a good night’s sleep is key to feeling energized for your day’s fast. Therefore, we would recommend setting an alarm to make sure you sleep on time and wake up early for your Sahur.
In the end, you should do what’s best for you and your body! We wish you a blessed and Happy Ramadan!
