OVERALL WELLBEING

Spiritual wellness is an important part of overall well-being and research says that involvement in spiritual or religious pursuits is associated with fewer strokes, lower rates of hypertension, and less reported pain from illness.
Here are just a few ways spirituality is connected to your overall well-being:

  • Involvement in spiritual or religious pursuits is associated with fewer strokes, lower rates of hypertension, and less reported pain from illness.
  • Spiritual people are more likely to participate in regular community service, which can protect against stress.
  • Spiritual people report being happier and being more satisfied with family life.
  • They also tend to be more resilient and have a lower risk of depression and suicide.
  • Spirituality often brings a built-in community, which impacts health, happiness and longevity.
  • Religion and spirituality for the elderly with dementia appear to slow cognitive decline, help them use better-coping strategies, and have a better quality of life.
  • Spirituality also helps people find purpose and reduce anxiety and depressive symptoms.
