Spirituality involves finding meaning and purpose in life, connecting to a greater power, and feeling supported by spirit. It’s a path to becoming more authentic and fulfilling your true life’s purpose. You can find your spirituality through activities like listening to inspirational talks, reading spiritual texts, meditation, prayer, stepping into others’ shoes, volunteering, and being more compassionate and forgiving. It can also be found by connecting with nature, attending religious services, or practicing yoga.
It’s important to remember that your spirituality is unique to you. When you’re a spiritual person, your mind, body, and soul are aligned to bring you the most peace. You can experience this through a higher sense of purpose, improved relationships with those around you, more meaningful work, and increased wellbeing.

And most importantly, you don’t need to buy into a definition of spirituality that doesn’t resonate on a core level with you.
