Here we are in the holy month of Ramadan. For you Teatoxers who celebrate it, Ramadan is not just a yearly routine, but also a chance to cleanse your body and soul, and prepare yourselves for Eid.
Fasting for a month long might be a challenge for some of us, but did you know it has a lot of benefits for you, both physically and mentally? Check out these beneficial facts about fasting to keep you positive throughout this month!
Re-Tune Your Digestive System
When we fast, we put a pause on our usual eating habits, and give our digestive system a chance to re-tune and clean itself. Without the heavy workload of digesting food like it usually does, your body can focus more on breaking down toxins and transporting them to organs that excrete them out of the body. It’s a great way of getting rid of unwanted waste in your body for a whole month long!
Re-Adjust Your Focus
For most of us living an urban, fast-paced lifestyle, our daily schedule is busier than ever. We get caught up in a hectic life, and have very little time for pausing and self-reflection. When we fast, we take away one of the essential parts of our everyday life: eating, drinking, and even other bad habits such as complaining or being lazy. This gives us more time to focus on other, more important things, such as taking care of yourself, setting new goals, or even learning new things.

Re-Discover Your Gratitude
Last but not least, fasting reminds us to be grateful for the simplest things in life. It might not cross our mind to be grateful for drinking water or eating a simple meal when we are not fasting, but when we have been hungry and thirsty all day long, even the smallest amount of water and rice can be a celebration of gratitude! And the good news is, gratitude is healthy for you too! It keeps you energized and look at things from a brand new perspective.
