Ramadan, aka the Real Hunger Games, has descended upon us and let me tell you — it gets pretty real.

With fasting from sunrise to sunset, I'm sure you can imagine that folks get tired, delusional, etc.

And honestly, you would be foolish to think otherwise.

And honestly, you would be foolish to think otherwise.

That's why, for this holy month, we've accumulated a list of things that can make your Ramadan easy peasy. Check it all out below!

1. Mason Jars for overnight oats!

So it's true that although suhoor is necessary, sometimes (very often) waking up that early can be painful. Idk about you, but all I want to do is literally roll out of bed, eat something, and go back to sleep. And what quick breakfast is better than overnight oats? Get some mason jars you can pack them in on Amazon for $8.58.

2. This T-Shirt to amp you up for waking up at the crack of dawn.

Because honestly, we might just need just a little extra boost to wake us up to eat breakfast at four o' clock in the morning. Pick it up on Amazon for $13.99.

3. A crock pot, because nobody wants to cook Iftar at the end of the day.

Let's be real, the last thing any of us wants to do when we're fasting is come home from work and make dinner. If I have it my way, I'm napping until it's Iftar time. If you don't want to have to worry about dinner, putting the crockpot on before you leave the house in the morning is always a good alternative to cooking at night. Get one on Amazon for $40.14.

4. Slow Cooker Liners, because nobody wants to clean that crock pot either.

Who wants to do dishes after Iftar? Let me tell you, not I. Pick up these slow cooker liners from Amazon for $8.34.

9. A sleep app to make sure you're well rested, because we both know your sleep schedule is about to be super messed up.

But no biggie. To keep track of your sleeping pattern download the Pillow app from the Apple Store for $4.99. It keeps track of your REM sleep, and also syncs with your Apple Watch.
