Having a spiritual dimension to our lives can make us happier. It can potentially impact on our mental health. Having a spiritual dimension means finding a sense of inner peace. It is something everyone can experience. It helps us to find meaning and purpose in the things we value. It brings hope and healing in times of loss.
Spirituality is personal and individual. Try to discover what works best for you, such as creating a regular quiet time for personal prayer, reflection or meditation.
