Fasting Is Not an Obstacle to Stay Productive!
The Holy Month of Ramadan is here!
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar in which Muslims fast from shortly before dawn until dusk. Sometimes we can feel weak and tired to the point of being unproductive. But we have a solution for you, boost your spirit and check out our tips.
1. Don’t miss sahur and eat enough
To ensure that you are energized throughout the day, you must eat, because sahur is your breakfast and lunch packed into one. You don't have to overeat. Instead, eat moderate portions of sahur because overeating will make you feel sleepy and unenergized.
2. Exercise, exercise and exercise
Exercising increases your metabolism and productivity by up to 50%, leaving you energized for the next day. Exercising in a fasted state can have a bigger impact on your body because it burns more fat.
3. Set a schedule and prioritize
Since your morning is the most energetic time of the day, try to schedule and prioritize work from most important to least important. This way, you can know which work to get done first, so you don't waste too much energy.
4. Get rid of distractions
Avoid talking about food, because concentrating on food will make you tired, and also avoid checking the time regularly in the office, because counting the hours and minutes left until iftar will be tiring and will make you feel hopeless. After all, it’s all about positive thinking!
5. Don't forget to take a break
Feeling sluggish and tired? Even when you're not fasting, it's natural to feel sleepy after long hours of work. Instead of forcing yourself, it's better to take a short break from work. That way, you will be more focused and eager to get back to work.
