Eid Mubarak 🌹 I cant say I nailed Ramadan, observing a Holy month while not having been religious I found the spiritual side much more difficult than the physical element - the fasting (which I did manage). A lot was highlighted; the impurity of many thoughts, unhealthy connections, cravings (beyond food and drink), arguments... it’s incredibly difficult to maintain an absence of these things consistently and takes a huge amount of discipline and strength - I imagine it’s made harder by the modern world. Looking at things that are far too common a part of our lives that we carry on day to day being unaware of gives a whole new perspective. Respect and love to everyone celebrating. ❤️

He said: “It’s interesting. I haven’t felt the spiritual side of it, not being religious that’s been more difficult, but the fasting side I’ve done pretty well.”

Jacamo has committed to donating the profits from the sales of its own branded hoodies to Calm during the campaign, which will see an episode hosted each Friday on @JacamoUKInstagramTV, with all episodes going up on their YouTube channel shortly thereafter.
