SPIRITUAL HEALTH

One of the more personal aspects of overall health and wellbeing, spiritual health is not one to be overlooked. Emily Smith, in her article “Spiritual Wellness: What is Your Meaning and Purpose?” says, “Spiritual wellness is being connected to something greater than yourself and having a set of values, principles, morals and beliefs that provide a sense of purpose and meaning to life, then using those principles to guide your actions.” 

As the levels of your spiritual health rise and fall over time, you will naturally experience many emotions along the way. Some will be negative; others, positive. Both are equally important for a well-rounded life experience, though it’s often difficult to appreciate the harder times. Being in good spiritual health means having a sense of purpose, which can make it a little easier to weather the storms that life undoubtedly brings. 

One such storm hit us all with the Coronavirus pandemic. Many people began questioning their lives, their existence, and their purpose. Some were able to discover new and better significance in their lives. A holistic view of health asserts that good spiritual health can help us cope with stressful situations, maintain healthy relationships, and develop higher thinking. 

So, how do you improve your spiritual health? By practicing yoga or meditation, spending time in prayer or reflection, journaling, volunteering, creating art, communing with nature, and in so many other ways, we can connect with our inner selves and our higher power. 

Here in our Resource Directory, you’ll find articles, podcasts, videos, courses, and more to help you learn how to do those things and many more. Knowing that spiritual health is a vitally important part of our overall wellness is half the battle. To win the war, incorporate some form of spiritual practice into your daily routine – learn how here!
