The Effects Of Ramadan On Education
It is that time of the year where Muslims are fasting and will not have food or drink for 18 hours at a time. This sacrifice definitely plays a part in one’s education which I will detail below.
The lack of liquid in the system decreases the cognitive ability and the performance of an individual. You are always told to have a big hearty breakfast before your exam but Muslims who are fasting will be unable to do so. They will have their food in the early hours of the morning which they will rely on to fuel them for their exams.
Going without food in the day will inevitably leave to hunger which will distract individuals from their revision and/or their exams. This can definitely have an impact on one’s grades and students should plan their meals so that the effect is minimal.
When you have a lunch break and everyone is stuffing their mouths with foods, use this time to be productive. Take this break to revise or practice questions. Ensure that the foods you eat will fuel you for the day and not have a detrimental effect for you in the long run.
Keep your sleeping pattern consistent and get used to your sleeping pattern. Your sleeping pattern is not likely to be ideal but if you can work around it and revise effectively, then you can definitely perform well in your exams.
Make sure you stay hydrated when you can eat and drink. Have plenty of water because you only have two times where you can eat. Make use of these times and plan ahead!
