Spiritual wellness refers to the capacity to seek meaning and purpose in life, and to strive for consistency between values and actions. A spiritually healthy person has a clear purpose in life and is able to reflect on the meaning of events. Additionally, he has clearly defined ideas of right and wrong, and is able to act accordingly.

It’s not difficult to invest in spiritual wellness if you make it a point to enjoy the little pleasures in life. Firstly, set aside some time for relaxation daily. For instance, take regular nature walks, sign up for yoga classes or simply find a quiet corner to meditate. Alternatively, visit a museum or treat yourself to a new play or musical.
