4. Wean Yourself Off Caffeine
Several days before your fast begins, you should start weaning yourself off caffeine.
Some people experience unbearable headaches 2 to 3 days after ceasing to drink caffeinated products.
During your fast you will already be acutely aware of your stomach.
There is no need to add a second discomfort if it can be avoided.
5. Avoid Media
Disconnecting from TV, radio, newspapers and the Internet can help you stay focused on your purpose for fasting.
You will be less tempted by the constant bombardment of advertising as you become physically and emotionally challenged.
Avoiding media will give you more time to focus on the Lord and His Word.
6. Disconnect From People
Fasting is not necessarily a vacation, though dedicating time off and away from people during your fast can help you get the most benefit out of this precious time.
Leave your email and cellphone behind.
If possible, find someone who can cover your responsibilities at work and ministry.
Many people fast and still carry on their normal daily activities. But if you can get away, it will give you more time in quietness and stillness with the lord.
