Tips for maintaining mental and emotional health throughout Ramadan

Fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, which is approaching, is associated with reducing stress, anxiety, and depression in general, especially in light of the fast-paced lifestyle we live today.
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor, founder and chief psychiatrist at Manasthali, shares effective tips to boost mental and emotional health throughout Ramadan:

1. Set clear intentions

Think about what you hope to achieve mentally and emotionally during Ramadan, including developing gratitude, patience, or feeling greater inner peace.


2. Pay attention to hydration during breakfast hours

Hydration options and nutritious foods should be prioritized during breakfast hours, as dehydration can affect mood and cognitive function, so make sure you drink enough water, with a balanced intake of fruits, vegetables, proteins and complex carbohydrates to maintain energy levels.

3. Sound sleep 

Maintain a consistent sleep schedule to support cognitive function and emotional resilience.

4. Engage with the community

Share your experiences, challenges, and successes with others, to provide emotional support and create an environment supportive of personal growth.

5. Gratitude

Consider keeping a gratitude journal to document moments of appreciation, for the purpose of promoting emotional and mental health.

6. Prayer and meditation

Set aside time each day for prayer, meditation, or quiet reflection, and engage in practices that help quiet the mind and focus your thoughts, whether it's deep breathing exercises, meditation, or mindfulness techniques. These practices can promote inner peace and emotional resilience.

7. Emotional awareness

Acknowledge and respect your feelings throughout the fasting period, as it is normal to experience fluctuations in mood and energy levels. Allow yourself to feel everything that happens without judgment, and explore healthy coping mechanisms to manage stress or emotional challenges.

8. Limit external stimuli

 Minimize exposure to external stimuli that may overwhelm your senses or disrupt your inner peace. Promote moments of stillness and solitude by disconnecting from digital devices, social media, or other distractions.

9. Listen to your body

Pay attention to your body's signals and respect its needs while fasting. If you're feeling tired or unwell, prioritize rest and self-care.
