For many people, spiritual wellness includes religious participation and prayer, but it also encompasses all aspects of faith, values, beliefs, and morals, as well as activities like meditation, yoga, and affirmations. People with good spiritual wellness make time for relaxation, make value-guided decisions, and connect with a personal sense of purpose.
