Is Spirituality Linked to Senior Health?

Can you live a fuller life by connecting with your spiritual self? Spirituality brings comfort and tranquility to many. Due to this, individuals that connect more with their spirituality or use it to help cope with challenges are more likely to live a healthier lifestyle.

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality is the belief in something beyond the self. For many, spirituality can be found in their religious traditions. Spirituality does not necessarily have to be found in religion, though. Spirituality focuses on the individual self and having a sense of peace or purpose. You can be spiritual and religious. Both components contribute to a healthy, happy life for older adults.

The Health Benefits of Spirituality

Connecting with your spirituality, whether through religion or other forms, can be beneficial to older adults in these ways:

  • Stronger relationships with family or yourself
  • Build strong communities
  • Ability to cope with stress
