Stay Active. Do not stay indoors for long periods of time. Go out of your houses everyday even if it is for a short five-minute walk near your home. This is better than just staring at the four walls in your room.
Going out will lift up your mood and you can make friends with the people in your neighbourhood.

Good sleep is very important as it will help you to function at the optimal level. It will help you to be mindful of the things around you. Sleep is part and parcel of being human so it is important to have quality sleep which is not disrupted by nightmares or with issues that you are preoccupied with during the day.
You must understand your own sleep pattern which varies with different people. It is the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w to sleep after Ishak prayers, or now in the fasting month, after Terawih prayers.
You may wish to pray the optional night prayers – the Tahajud but make sure it is not at the expense of your compulsory dawn or Subuh prayer.
