by Khowla Oun Now that Ramadan has come to an end, it’s time for us to become proactive on how we are going to maintain the ‘Ramadan lifestyle’. An unrealistic way of moving forward would be to tell yourself, “Okay, I’m going to try and keep up everything I did during Ramadan”, without actually setting any goals.
