WHY SPIRITUAL WELLNESS
What is spiritual wellness?
Spirituality and health are connected. Just as physical wellness describes health in the body, spiritual wellness describes health in the spirit. Spiritual wellness can relate to religious beliefs. Some people link their spiritual wellness to the natural world. Others define it by their relationships with others. Still, others may nurture spiritual wellness by living a fulfilling life according to their personal values. However spiritual wellness is defined, it involves a connection between people and something greater than themselves. This could be a higher power, a person’s own sense of meaning and purpose, or values or belief systems.
Emotional and mental health, physical health, and spiritual health are all part of total wellness. The mind and body are connected, so when wellness in one area is lacking, other areas of health might be affected.
For example, a person who develops a chronic health condition may not feel optimistic about their health improving. If they become unable to work, enjoy hobbies, or take care of activities of daily life on their own, they may struggle to find meaning in life. These feelings could contribute to depression or anxiety.
People in good spiritual health may:
Be hopeful and optimistic, even when things are difficult
Have defined values and live according to them
Have a strong sense of self-worth
Be more able to forgive others and themselves easily
Feel peaceful or in harmony with nature, life, and the world
Find solace in meditation or religious rituals like worship and prayer
People struggling with spiritual wellness might:
Feel empty or as if life lacks meaning
Often feel anxious or unsettled
Often feel as if they need to improve themselves
Feel unconcerned or uncaring about life
Judge themselves and others quickly and/or harshly
Find self-compassion and self-forgiveness difficult
Lack a sense of inner peace
Lack a sense of belonging
