Ramadan

, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other sensual pleasures during daylight hours. The fasting month is also about spiritual cleansing and introspection, a time to re-energize the God connection. And it's a reminder of the plight of the poor--which hopefully pushes Muslims to do more charitable work.



But fasting isn't exclusive to Muslims (or

Ramadan

, for that matter)

Most faiths prescribe some sort of fast.

And done the right way, fasting is a wonderful way for us to cleanse ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Are you interested embarking on a fast? Then check out these tips to guide you to a more healthful and spiritual fast.
