Stress can be felt in different parts of the body. When stress affects our spirits, it causes a lack of joy and peace within us. Whether we believe in God or not, it doesn’t hurt to give your spiritual health a boost. It’s no surprise that most of us put so much emphasis on our physical health. It make sense because we can actually see ourselves getting stronger or fitter. Our spiritual health on the other hand is buried deep within our hearts and souls which makes it harder to recognize it as improving or degrading.
Moreover, we are on a journey towards finding the best possible version of ourselves and it’s important to include spiritual health.
Here are the ways to strengthen your spiritual health:
Meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels, low blood pressure and improve overall wellbeing. Studies show that meditation helps people cope with stress better by reducing their emotional reactivity while increasing compassion towards others.
Take time to reflect
This could mean taking time out each day to pray or meditate, or simply taking time out each day to be still. Think about how important this time is for you, it can really help keep you grounded and focused on what matters most in life.
Volunteer your time
Volunteering doesn’t just benefit those around us, it also helps us feel better about ourselves too. Volunteering gives us an opportunity to give back to our communities, which makes us feel good about what we do with our lives.
Worship is one of the most powerful ways to connect with God because it allows us to give him our whole hearts and minds. When we worship, we acknowledge his greatness in all things, including his creation and his word.
Give thanks for what you have been given
With everything we have going on in life, it’s easy to focus on what we don’t have instead of what we do have (e.g., family, friends, health). It’s important to remember those things that make us happy and grateful each day so that we can enjoy them even more.
