Spiritual Health: What Is It And How To Improve It

6. Learn to forgive and let go

We have all heard the old adage “to err is human, to forgive divine.” Making mistakes is basic human nature, but when it comes to forgiveness, most of us tend to struggle with it. Holding on to people or grudges can dampen our spiritual growth, lead to stress & anger and steal our peace of mind. However, when we practice forgiveness and learn to let go of anger, negative thoughts and emotions we liberate ourselves and invite inner peace back into our lives. Although it is easier said than done, letting go of things that don’t serve you or your goals can help you develop a positive attitude towards life. Forgiveness allows us to move forward, while anger keeps us trapped in a negative mental, emotional and spiritual place. Forgiveness is a crucial step for our spiritual health. It is more about you than about the one who wronged you.

7. Spend time in nature

We are designed to be in nature and not to sit in front of a screen all day. All humans share a special, innate bond with nature and all animals. We are part of a collective divine consciousness and every being is connected with the other, despite what we may believe otherwise. According to a recent 2021 study, connecting with animals can have a positive impact on our mental health and encourages humans to give back to nature and wildlife. The study adds “when people encounter and interact with animals in their natural environment, their mental health and wellbeing is enhanced; feelings of love, belonging, positive feelings, fulfillment and the gaining of perspective, are articulated.

So if you are feeling lost and wish to improve your spiritual health, go out for a walk in your local park, or go for a hike or camping or any activity that allows you to connect with nature and animals. You can travel to the mountains or the beach or simply sit under the cooling shade of a tree and listen to the leaves rustling in the wind. It will empower you to live in the moment and connect with Mother Earth. Studies show that spending time in nature is associated with a wide range of “human health benefits.”
