  4. Walk Everywhere
      • Ever notice that you tend to cut down exercises in the holy month?
      • Replace all that with simple actions like walking to the mosque for tarawih or parking further away from your office.
      • Just with few minutes of brisk walking, you can improve blood circulation and make the heart stronger.

        • Don’t let the holy month deters you from exercising.
        • You CAN exercise during Ramadan.
        • Night should be reserved for all weight lifting exercise.
