Ramadan preparations include preparations on various levels, including physical preparation. Physical preparations may include the following steps:
- The first thing which gets disturbed during Ramadan is our sleeping pattern. Normally we sleep after the Isha prayer or up to 9 or 10 PM and get up after Fajar Prayer. But in Ramadan Kareem, we have to get up late at night for Taraweeh and have to get up even an hour or two before the Fajar prayer. This disturbs the entire sleeping pattern. To get prepared for Ramadan, we have to practice adjusting our sleep patterns.
- The second thing which is affected during Ramadan is our eating pattern. So we have to maintain a healthy diet even before Ramadan so that we can meet our fasting routines in Ramadan.
- Staying active and fit is a thing that is a basic human need. Everyone has to stay active and fit for routine matters and this is thing that can be proved very helpful during Ramadan.
