In the morning after taking bath, offer prayers to Lord Ganesha. Ligh a "Deepak" (earthen lamp) and do any prayer or Aarti of Ganesh ji.

Ideally, remain on water throughout the day, and chant the name of Ganesha with full devotion if you want to keep a complete Sankashti Fast. However, those people observing partial fast can eat Sabudana Khichadi or fruits, nuts or curd rice. Salt must be avoided.
