Between family, school, and work, you might find it hard to stay productive while fasting. We’ve compiled a few of our favorite tips on how to stay productive at home this Ramadan. 

5 ways to boost your productivity this Ramadan

1. Get important tasks done after suhoor

Try to tackle the most important stuff early in the day like writing emails and finishing assignments. If you can’t stay awake after suhoor, get the most important tasks done when you have the most energy, like before noon.

2. Make goals for the month

Whether you want to learn about Islamic history or memorize a new Surah, try giving yourself bite-sized goals that can be tracked throughout the month. Write them down and check in on them often – you can even use apps like Tally to keep you on track.

3. Recharge with a midday nap 

The days are still long so it’ll help to take a power nap before iftar. This way you recharge as you head into the home stretch of the day. The extra nap will also help if you choose to visit the masjid for prayers at night.

4. Eat good food at suhoor

Food is fuel. Make sure you plan ahead for simpler Ramadan meals and pick healthy foods that keep you going throughout the day. Oily and fried foods may be delicious, but they can do a number on your energy levels. Pick oatmeal over sugary cereal and fruits over sugary fruit snacks. 

5. Don’t overwork yourself

It isn’t easy to operate at the same levels during Ramadan like you do during the rest of the year. Simplify your routine and focus on the priorities. It’s okay to feel tired and to not get the same amount of work done. Set reasonable expectations for yourself, and make sure you don’t burn yourself out.

We hope these tips help make this Ramadan the most productive one yet. Since 2002 Guidance Residential has helped over 28,000 families celebrate Ramadan in their new homes. We are so thankful to be part of their celebrations.
