WEB DESK: Ramadan is here and this month is regarded as the most prestigious month of all. It is also the time to bring change in our lives. Habits can be changed and adopted and by them we can bring positive change in surroundings. One can make difference to the society by changing their own self.
Here we have discuss five habits that can be adopted this Ramadan and that can be a good change to your life.
Learn to share
We always strive for more and more. There is nothing bad in it. But one should be thankful for the blessings he already have. This Ramadan, take a step back to appreciate everything you have and if you think you have the ability to share it with others, feel free to do so.
If you have a little extra of something and you share it with those who have none, you not only receive countless blessings, you feel a sense of peace that cannot come from doing anything else.
Gratitude and kindness, when expressed by the younger generation has a greater value in the eyes of God. This habit should be encouraged from a young age.
Reconnect with you loved ones
We are often so involved in our daily activities that we don’t get time to spend with our loved ones. Ramadan gives us a reason to be together. Twice a day for the entire month, the families sit for Suhoor and Iftaar and get a chance to reconnect, a habit we can continue doing even after Ramadan.
Give yourself a break
The fast-paced world has curbed our sense of patience. With everything happening so rapidly, we find ourselves always in a hurry to get things done. If something does not go our way, we become irritated and lash out. A habit to adopt this month is patience. Not only does Ramadan teaches us patience, it brings us peace as well. Once we relax and take things slowly, the end results will always come out better.
Forgive and Forget
Holding grudges and intolerance is now rampant in today’s society. This adds to stress levels making an individual extremely unhappy. Ramadan brings with it the lesson of kindness and forgiveness. If someone has hurt you, try to forgive and forget. Not only will this strengthen your ties, it will also make you happier and stress-free.
Learn to Enjoy Solitude
With things happening so fast now, no one gets time to just sit back and relax. Ramadan allows us to take a break from the hectic life and connect back with God. Spending time in solitude, prostrating before the Almighty brings a unique sense of peace to the soul.
