What strategies do I use to maintain my health and well-being?


Assalam Alaikum, my dear readers! Shabana Mukhtar here, and today’s Daily Prompt got me reflecting on an important topic: strategies for maintaining health and well-being. But let me be honest with you – it’s not a topic I can boast about. You see, when it comes to taking care of myself, I often fall short.

The truth is, I hardly get enough sleep. And even if I manage to catch some shut-eye, it’s during abnormal hours compared to the regular working hours of the world. My body’s internal clock seems to have a mind of its own, and it’s not always in sync with the rest of the world.

To add to that, I’ve been dealing with various ailments lately, which has led me to rely on medication for the past few months. It’s been a challenging time, and I must admit that I haven’t been the best at prioritizing my health.

Now, you might be wondering if I have any strategies or routines in place to maintain my well-being. Well, truth be told, I don’t have any set plans or rituals that I follow diligently. But there is something that brings me solace amidst all the chaos – listening to the lectures of scholars.

The wisdom and knowledge shared by these scholars resonate with me on a spiritual level. Their words provide comfort and guidance, reminding me of the bigger picture and the importance of taking care of the soul as much as the body. Their lectures offer a source of inspiration, urging me to strive for self-improvement and spiritual growth.

While I may not have a strict health regimen, I find solace and healing in seeking knowledge and connecting with my faith. This, in itself, is a form of self-care for me. It helps me find inner peace and perspective, even when life’s challenges are overwhelming.

As I reflect on this prompt, I realize that taking care of ourselves goes beyond physical routines and strategies. It encompasses our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being as well. Finding solace in the teachings of scholars may not be a conventional health strategy, but it serves as a reminder that nourishing the soul is just as crucial as tending to the body.

In conclusion, I may not have a perfect health and well-being routine, but I find comfort in the wisdom of scholars and their lectures. As I continue on my journey of self-discovery and growth, I hope to develop healthier habits and prioritize my well-being more effectively.

Thank you for joining me on this reflection, my dear readers. Until next time, let’s all strive to find moments of solace and nourishment for our hearts, minds, and bodies. 

Assalam Alaikum and Allah Hafiz!
