Feeling connected to something bigger than ourselves, faith, and traditions can support your well-being.
Healthy spirituality gives a sense of peace, wholeness and balance among the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of our lives. Seeking a meaningful connection with something bigger than yourself can result in increased positive emotions. Transcendent moments are filled with peace, awe, and contentment.
Some benefits of spiritual wellness:
- Help reduce stress and depression.
- Reduce anxiety.
- Lower blood pressure (and therefore, risk of heart disease)
- Strengthen your immune system and lower blood sugar.
- Help sustain concentration, memory and cognition.
