Spirituality impacts all aspects of wellness. Consider these in your life:
Awe and wonder. Pause on occasion to be purposefully aware of what is Holy and Wonderful around you.
Hope. When faced with a challenge, trust that it's possible for your challenge to end well. Believe that God is "on your side."
Gratitude. Be kind and generous, both in giving and receiving.
Repentance and Forgiveness. Believe it is possible to make and receive amends when you have hurt another person.
Flexibility. Be open to what life brings. Trust in a "greater good"
Community. Share your gifts and talents to enrich another's life.
Vocation. Your work and presence makes a difference in the world.
Spiritual or religious?
Spirituality asks the "Why?" questions about life's meaning and purpose. Religious practice helps many people answer those questions. You may choose to be spiritual, religious, or both.
Many people find their spiritual lives are enriched when they join with others in religious worship and community. Your chaplains are additional resources, can offer support and advice, and can refer you to local churches or houses of worship.
