Tawwakul is a response to hardship in one's life, and such hardship is usually faced through fasting, reflection, and prayer. Tawakkul is also considered a natural result of extreme zuhd

One day, the prophet Muḥammad ﷺ noticed a desert Arab leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the nomad, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The nomad said, “I put my trust in God.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel and put your trust in God.”

God knows what's good for us.
