In India, the month-long fasting period officially begins today as Ramadan gets underway. While most Muslims begin fasting on the first day, some may be unprepared and intend to begin fasting tomorrow or as shortly as possible. If you are one among them, this post is for you. So don’t close this browser tab just yet; keep reading. Because we’ll look at some quick things you can do today to ensure you can start your fast tomorrow. Here are some quick steps you can take right now to get ready for Ramadan 2023.
How to quickly prepare for Ramadan? Tips for busy people:
Take your breakfast earlier than usual
For Suhoor, the meal is eaten before dawn when the fast starts, and we get up early throughout Ramadan. This should not be overlooked. So, if you’re looking for the first and most important step in getting ready for Ramadan, this is it. Start eating breakfast early from now on to help your body adjust to the earlier hours. This is essential if you don’t typically eat breakfast. You can eat whatever you normally eat during Suhoor to avoid feeling strange, uncomfortable, or nauseous by eating so early in your fast.

Complete all your prayers
We all have days when we aren’t very good at praying and don’t finish many of them. Some of us pray twice and call it a day. And others pray four times but are unable to complete all five. Everything happens. The most important aspect of preparing for Ramadan is ensuring that you can complete all of your prayers on time. Even when fasting, if you do not pray, the fast is said to be ineffective. So, today, make sure you finish all of your prayers in preparation for your first fast of Ramadan.
Make a list of your monthly objectives
Everyone who observes Ramadan has a different ambition. Regardless of what they are, make a list of all of your goals. This is to make sure that as the month progresses, you stay on track with your objectives. You should also set a reminder to review these goals every week to see whether you’re making progress. A month can fly by more quickly than you might imagine, so don’t put off all of your Ramadan plans. Remember that you only get one chance per year. So if you miss it now, you’ll have to wait an entire year for another.
Cut back on the caffeine
It’s difficult to avoid caffeine when you work in a corporate environment. Or if you have to stay awake for extended periods of time. However, keep in mind that you will already be getting less sleep than usual during Ramadan. You’ll have a jam-packed schedule, but you’ll have to handle it all without caffeine for the entire day. And if you plan on drinking coffee after breaking your fast, you will most likely not get enough sleep for the next fast. So, rather than ruining your Ramadan schedule by consuming too much caffeine, avoid it. If you can’t do it all in one day, spread it out over the month.
Create a meal plan
This is for all busy moms and anyone else who has a hectic schedule. If you are unable to cook every day during Ramadan, plan all of your meals ahead of time. And then begin preparing for them today. Make a list of the dishes you can prepare for the coming week as your first task today. Then go grocery shopping and prepare all of the ingredients for those meals. Then, during Suhoor and Iftaar, all you have to do is combine the batches you’ve made to have a hot and nutritious meal. It may appear impossible at first, but once you try it, you’ll realise how simple it is.
Make a plan for your exercise routine
Because of fasting, many people associate Ramadan with weight loss. However, the truth is that you gain weight during Ramadan. Sure, we can try to eat healthily. But after not eating for an entire day, we’ll cave and eat oily and sugary foods. You can reduce your intake as much as possible. However, you must also be physically active if you do not want to gain an unhealthy amount of weight. So, sit down today and plan out your exercise routine for the month. After Iftaar, you can engage in all of the sweat-inducing activities. And, to keep yourself active, stick to low-impact activities like walking during the day.
