Spiritual wellness is having a set of guiding beliefs, principles, or values that give meaning and purpose to your life. Being a spiritually well person can bring a sense of clarity to the world around us and provide us the opportunity to grow healthy relationships with ourselves and others. By focusing on the positive aspects of life and finding spirituality to be an antidote for negative feelings such as cynicism, anger, and pessimism. 

Religions help many people develop spiritual health, but it is not the only source of spiritual wellness. A lot of people find meaning and purpose in their lives on their own through nature, art, meditation, or volunteering to name a few ideas.
