5 Easy Ways to Nourish Spiritual Wellness

Want to accomplish spiritual wellness in life? Everyone’s path is unique.

The idea of “wellness” may evoke thoughts of yoga retreats, green smoothies and journaling activities. However, wellness comes in many forms. Wellness is about thriving in life rather than just surviving. That means that wellness isn’t just physical; it encompasses all aspects of what it means to be human, including our spiritual lives.

What is spiritual wellness?

You may think spiritual wellness must involve religion, but that’s not the case. Spiritual wellness is about finding a sense of purpose and meaning in life, which includes one’s morals and ethics. But spiritual wellness is different for everyone. Some people use religion to guide them in their spiritual wellness, and some do not. No matter your path in life, spiritual wellness is for everyone.

5 Ways to Nourish Spiritual Wellness

Reaching outside ourselves and feeling a sense of connection with the world is an essential part of spiritual wellness. How can you achieve this feeling? Here are five ways to nourish your sense of spiritual wellness:

  • Meditation – Meditation can take many forms, including sitting quietly, reciting a mantra to yourself, or even taking a long walk. Meditation is a simple way to reduce stress and give yourself space to explore your inner world.
  • Volunteering – Service to others is one easy way to nourish your spirit. Volunteering can help you feel more socially connected, reinforcing how much we matter and that we’re not alone in the world. It can give you a sense of purpose and gratitude.
  • Doing what you love – What are some of your favorite hobbies? Making time to do the things you love nourishes your spirit. It’s a straightforward way that we can refill our cups and feel refreshed and ready to give back to others.
  • Spending time in nature – Spending time in nature can give us a sensation of awe – the feeling we get in the presence of something vast or something that challenges our idea of the world. This is a reminder that we’re part of something bigger and that there is more to the world.
  • Connecting with your faith community – If you’re part of a faith community, connecting with them (hopefully in person!) is a great way to reinforce your feeling of spiritual wellness. Find a way to get involved that makes you feel good.
