As the month of Ramadan unfolds, our colleagues around the world embark on a period of fasting, reflection, and spiritual growth. 

At AtkinsRéalis, we recognize the diverse backgrounds of our team members and the significance of Ramadan.

Today, we are sharing practical tips and tricks for staying motivated during Ramadan, fostering an inclusive environment where everyone can feel supported and energized.

Tips and tricks for staying motivated

  • Effective time management - efficiently manage your work hours to accommodate fasting schedules. Prioritize tasks and break them into manageable segments to stay productive throughout the day.
  • Staying hydrated & a balanced diet- opt for a balanced diet rich in proteins, complex carbohydrates, and hydration to sustain energy levels.
  • Mindful rest - ensure sufficient rest during non-working hours. Adequate sleep contributes to better focus and mental resilience during work hours.
  • Open communication - communicate openly with colleagues and supervisors about your needs during Ramadan. A supportive work environment involves mutual understanding.

Offering flexibility in scheduling meetings or providing quiet spaces for prayer can make a significant difference. 

Simple gestures, like showing empathy and avoiding scheduling work-related events during Iftar times, demonstrate inclusivity and respect for diverse cultural practices.
