1. Know your Ramadan nighttime priorities and DON’T become nocturnal:
2. Keep a missed sleep diary in Ramadan:
- Use to fill in your sleep debt.
- Aim to go to sleep 15 minutes earlier by taking steps to get home faster after Taraweh.
- For women, catch up on your sleep by 1-2 hours during your week of menstruation when you do not have to wake up for fajr.
- Add 1-2 extra hours of sleep on the weekend when you don’t have work.
3. Clean up your “sleep hygiene” to improve your sleep quality in Ramadan:
- Social interactions
- Eating/Drinking patterns
