How Spirituality Can Impact Your Daily Life

Achieving a higher quality of life can seem like a difficult feat, but it’s probably why you started at UMA in the first place. Having positive relationships, high self-esteem, and overall optimism are all things that can lead to a stronger sense of purpose and ultimately a better life.

Each of those aspects all have one thing in common — it starts with you. Spiritual wellness is an ability to find harmony between who you are, what you value, and what you want to accomplish.

The UMA Wellness Center wants to empower UMA students. Sometimes, that empowerment can come from within. This month, we’re going to focus on how incorporating spirituality in your life can have a positive impact.

What is spiritual wellness and what can it do?

Spiritual wellness can be a religious or non-religious endeavor. It promotes a practical, understanding and calm approach to school, work, and family needs. In other words, it gives you confidence in your instincts and provides the strength you need to move toward success.

An important step to building spiritual wellness, and purpose, is self-evaluation. What do you value? Education, family, community, health, financial stability? What/whom do you respect? Are you an honest and ethical person?

The Hypertension Institute advises that people with high spiritual well-being find greater meaning in life and feel connected to something larger than themselves.

You can grow your spiritual wellness and sense of purpose at any age. The following resources provide guidance on how to get started:
