What is Spiritual Wellness?
Spiritual wellness is the meaningful and deep connections between you and the world around you. That includes connections with people, nature, the universe, and anything you come across in life. Spiritual wellness is to find the meaning and purpose for your life. Why are you here? What are you meant to accomplish on your short time on Earth? What are you living for?
It can be a bummer to not understand what you are doing here. At the same time, there is not real or correct answer to the big question, "what is my life's purpose". I think that is for you to decide. Only the individual themselves can determine their purpose.
Spiritual wellness is having your own belief system and values. Your beliefs can be religiously driven or not. As long as you believe in something. That's all that matters and you can make it your own unique beliefs. Whenever religion and beliefs come up in conversations I always make the joke "I made up my own religion". That's actually true about me. I really made up my own religion that only I believe, and it gives me comfort, happiness, and purpose. It checks all the boxes of spiritual wellness, and it's all made up in my head.
It is so important that everyone has their unique beliefs, values, and life purpose to live for. Spiritual wellness can be anything you want it to be. Spiritual wellness is to be free of tension, anxiety, and fear. It can be anything that makes you comfortable, kind, happy, connected, and purposeful.
How Do You Achieve Spiritual Wellness?
Well now that you know you can believe whatever you want, you can figure out how to get there however you want. Everyone has their own journey to spiritual wellness. Sometimes it’s a great loss or a great gain that makes us start thinking, "is there something bigger than me out there?" I do not necessarily think you should wait for that loss or gain, so I thought I would give you some tips to get you thinking about how to begin your spiritual wellness journey.
1. Find Meaning
List out everything that is meaningful to you. It can be family, friends, pets, camping, etc. Whatever means the most to you.
2. Find Value
List out your personal values. Examples of some personal values are trust, kindness, honesty, etc.
3. Create Beliefs
Using your meaning and value list think about your beliefs. Think about your overall purpose and why you are here. List out your beliefs, so you can reflect on them later.
4. Revisit Meaning, Values, and Beliefs
Review your meaning, value, and belief list on a frequent basis. It can be any frequency you want whether it be yearly, monthly, weekly, or daily. The choice is yours. Revisit your lists whenever you feel angry, sad, frustrated, or overall negative to get realigned. Finally, make choices that align to what you find meaningful, valuable, and to your beliefs.
5. Practice Mindfulness
Work on being in the now. There is no better time than the present.
11. Be Open To Learn
Be open to learning about what other people find meaningful, valuable, and their overall beliefs. Understanding other peoples perspectives will improve your connection with them.
12. Limit Social Media Usage
Social media can be poisonous. It gives us a false sense of what life should be. It facilitates a toxic behavior of comparing ourselves to others. Limit your screen time and you will notice significant improvements to your emotional and spiritual wellness.
13. Create a Spirituality Vision Board
Sometimes things come to us easier if we can see it. Create a vision board of everything you believe it. It can be anything you want. You can add horoscopes, crystals, icons, colors, etc.
14. Be Kind
BE A GOOD PERSON. Be a good person and good things will come to you. Be nice and treat people better than how you want to be treated. Kindness goes a really long way in life.
15. Express Your Feelings
Do not bottle up your emotions or anything for that matter. Bottling things up leads to an explosion later. Find a safe form of release whether it be journaling or talking to a trustworthy friend. It is important to always be open and honest with yourself and others.
