Ramadan 2021: How to Increase Your Productivity 10x at Work?


Are you ready to work during Ramadan? Fasting from sunrise to sunset for 30 days makes it difficult sometimes to stay productive at Work, especially because almost all people change their lifestyle during Ramadan into something that has no result but feeling sleepy, tense, and stressed workday.

Yet, there're specific ways that you can follow to maintain a work-life balance and boost productivity during this holy month.

Here're 7 ways to help you increase your productivity x10 at Work during Ramadan:

Don't Ignore "Suhoor"

During the holy month of Ramadan, you'll eat two meals only, and Suhoor is the most important one of them as it set the tone for your entire day.  You mustn't overlook it. You'll find it challenging to manage your day while feeling hungry or thirsty. Try to eat useful things that take a longer time to digest and don't make you feel dehydrated.  Make an effort to get up before "Fajr" so that you can conduct your night prayers and have plenty of time for 'Suhoor.'

Eat Healthy Meals

After Iftar, choose healthier options to eat. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables will keep you hydrated during the day.
  • Avoid fried and salty food to feel less thirsty.
  • Eating meals high in carbohydrates, protein, and fiber will keep you energized during the day.
  • A well-balanced diet will help you boost your productivity and power all day long.

Plan Your Workday Ahead

During Ramadan, employees find it challenging to focus on their job because of being hungry and thirsty. That affects their concentration. To avoid this, plan your workday the night before to define when you should focus on high-priority tasks and when you can do small tasks. Maintaining work-life balance bears its fruits during Ramadan.

Plan Your Family Tasks

This tip is for working mothers who have to balance their Work and homes while fasting. Planning is always the best solution, whether at work or home. Set a schedule of your household chores and find ways to conduct them smarter, not harder. You can do this by asking someone to help, list daily, weekly, and monthly tasks, or preparing food before Ramadan so you could start cooking immediately, etc.

Seeking help from others around you will help you ensure that you have ample time to relax and plan for the next day of Work. It'll also help you spend more quality time with your children and husband.

Order Your Tasks to Your Power Levels

Make a to-do list and prioritize the most important ones and do them first. During the morning hours, the energy level is at its highest. So, prioritize and complete urgent tasks or tasks that need more power.

Make sure you get enough sleep by sleeping and waking up early. Your mornings would be more productive and efficient if you eat good and healthy meals.

Hold Meeting Virtually

Meetings are part and parcel of our daily workdays, and they consume our power and productivity while being on regular days; how would they be while being in Ramadan?

Try to utilize the video conferencing applications to hold as many meetings as possible. Set a meeting plan that will not negatively impact your entire workday. If you see that a morning meeting will consume your energy, delay it to the end of the day. If you see that a meeting is essential and needs high concentration, plan it as the morning's first task.

Recharge Your Power

After some hours, your productivity will be affected by being hungry and losing some power. After every hour, it is highly recommended that you take a short break. You can walk to the toilet and wash your face to feel refreshed and comfortable for some time.

Finally, while fasting during Ramadan 2021, be persistent in increasing your productivity during your workday. Follow the abovementioned tips to see the difference.
