Spiritualism differs for everyone, but allows one to search the meaning and purpose in human existence. Also opens the door for personal growth in defining personal values and ethics.

Participating in spiritual activities can help in maintaining or improving the physical and physiological wellness. The path to spiritual wellness entails meditation; prayer, affirmations, yoga or any specific practice that allows in developing a connection with higher power or belief system.

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, founding Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.)

When we focus our minds on the present moment, we are aware of our thoughts, feelings and actions, without attaching judgment to them.  It can help us to embrace reality and the present moment, instead of jumping to the past or to the future.
