What Is Spiritual Wellness and What Spiritual Wellness is Not?
When we are well, we feel healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. We also feel a social connection to our community and the world around us; aware of how we contribute to and affect others and the environment. Today we’re going to take a look at spiritual wellness as a piece of the puzzle for a healthy and happy human experience.
What is spiritual wellness?
Spiritual wellness comes about from the work that is put into expanding our sense of purpose and meaning in life. A person who has reached a place of spiritual wellness is at peace and leads a meaningful life. They are happy to make sacrifices for the greater good while acting with morals and ethics in mind.
For some, spirituality involves religious practice or family traditions but there are many other ways to achieve spiritual health and wellness.
Some examples of spiritual wellness include:
· Feeling a strong sense of connection with the people and animals around you
· Feeling a connection to your community and the world at large
· Being aware of and caring about how your actions impact your community and the environment
· Having a strong understanding of who you are and your life’s purpose
· Having a spiritual outlet – a relationship with The Divine, the universe, etc.
· The ability to accept “what is” and live in the present moment
· Living life according to a strong set of moral values

Like anything else in life, we have to make a daily commitment to concrete actions to reach our goals. Some examples of how to achieve spiritual wellness include:
· Set aside time each day to pray, read, be in nature, or meditate
· Practice mindfulness – spend 10 minutes focusing completely on the present moment
· Forgive yourself – showing empathy for yourself is just as important as showing it for others
