Refers to the values and beliefs that give us a sense of purpose in life

Spiritual wellness refers to the core dimension of you, your innermost self, and includes recognizing our search for meaning and purpose of existence and developing an appreciation for life and the natural forces that exist in the universe.

It can be nurtured or cultivated through prayer, meditation, time in the natural world, deep listening and self reflection.
Questions to ask yourself:
  1. Am I taking the time to determine what values and beliefs are important to me? Have I considered talking to others about those values and beliefs?
  2. Do I make time for mindfulness, meditation or prayer?
  3. If I have experienced loss, how have I done so?
  4. If I belong to a religious community, how am I connected to this group?
  5. Do I show respect and consideration for the beliefs and traditions of others?
