Wellness Wednesday: Spiritual Health

Hello Everyone and Happy Wellness Wednesday to you all. As a Health Educator I often ask my client’s to rate the state of their spiritual health (on a scale of 1 to 10), and I almost always receive high number ratings. Now in the back of my mind I am always thinking, “Are they being completely honest with me?” I just feel like spiritual health is something we can always be working on. After all we are all just human.

According to research done in 2016 by gallup.com, 89% of Americans believe in God or a higher power. 89% is a pretty high number. With that said, how much time do you actually spend everyday working on your spiritual health? The need to believe in a higher power gives us a sense of belonging, and a heart of gratitude. The result is we become more positive human beings, and studies have shown the more  positive you are, the healthier life you will live.

Whether you go to church, read, pray, meditate, or praise out loud, working on your spiritual health is extremely important to your overall wellness. What do you need to work on in your spiritual life, and how would you rate your spiritual health?

Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
