What is Spiritual Health

Spiritual health refers to a person’s sense of purpose, meaning, and inner peace. It encompasses beliefs, values, ethics, and community. A person with good spiritual health has self-awareness, empathy, and hope. They also can manage stress, grief, and life events positively. Spiritual health can be nourished through meditation, prayer, mindfulness, or connecting with nature.


In a study of over 1,000 people, those who reported high levels of spiritual well-being had a 39% lower risk of death over a 5-year period. (Psychiatry Research, 2009).
