One of Ramadan’s qualities is that it breaks the routine, which is something we should do from time to time. However, during the first days of the month we find some difficulty in maintaining our energy and productivity levels. We feel the Ramadan days are too short and lack productivity when in fact, the opposite is true.
Here are some of the things that can limit our productivity during Ramadan and how to avoid them:
1. Staying Up Late
Ramadan’s temporary life style can negatively affect your productivity during the day. So, try to get at least 4 hours of night sleep. A good tip is to get some sleep at night, wake up for Suhoor and then continue your sleep again.
2. Caffeine and Energy Drinks
In order for the previous tip to work, you need to avoid drinking coffee at night. If you are a coffee addict, you can have one cup of coffee right after breaking your fast. We know it is hard to resist Arabic coffee after Taraweeh prayer with family and friends, but if your productivity is struggling, you need to avoid coffee during late night hours.
Thirst during Ramadan days is one of the most common things that can negatively affect our productivity. Therefore, you need to make sure you are getting enough water during the night. Eating fruits and vegetables can help in hydrating our bodies.
It is evident that working out boosts our energy. It increases our energy and therefore, increases our productivity. However, make sure that your diet is balanced and sufficient to avoid muscle loss.
Enjoy your Ramadan at its best with serviis.
