Spiritual Wellness

To enjoy spiritual wellness is to possess a set of guiding beliefs, principles, or values that give meaning and purpose to your life, especially in difficult times. The well person uses spirituality to focus on positive aspects of life and to fend off negative feelings such as cynicism, anger, and pessimism. Organized religions help many people develop spiritual health. Religion, however, is not the only source or form of spiritual wellness. Many people find meaning and purpose in their lives on their own—through nature, art, meditation, or good works—or with their loved ones.

Examples of Practicing Spiritual Wellness

  • Engage in spiritual practice(s) (i.e. journaling, daily prayer, devotions, meditation, silence etc.)
  • Join a Faith Development Organization or on-campus small group
  • Find a local church or faith community
  • Give and/or receive spiritual mentorship
  • Participate in a mission or service trip
