Its been awhile since I have posted a blog because I have been super busy with school. I only have a few minutes so this is going to be short and to the point. Spiritual wellness is not a new concept at all, but it is a very misunderstood concept. When most people hear spiritual wellness they automatically think of some kind of religion...well that's not what this is about. Spiritual wellness is quite simply the alignment of your inner most core beliefs with you outward actions. It is keeping your own personal "spirit" well. I don't care who you are you know what right and wrong is to you, and if you don't align your actions with that belief you are slowly killing your own spirit. In order for your spirit to flourish it needs to be nurtured not smothered. Now I am not saying that you can't use religion and that it has nothing to do with spiritual wellness, because for some they are very intertwined. Some people find that their core beliefs align with a certaing religon...thats fine, thats what works for that person. Some people meditate or do yoga and some people such as myself just need to get into nature to be able to hear themselves every now and then. Spiritual wellness is a very personal experience and most people have vary different core beliefs, that doesn't make one right and one wrong. We are all individuals and should remember that when it comes to wellness, especially spiritual wellness. So whatever your personal beliefs are, make sure that you are living your life aligned with them, and do yourself a favor, don't allow yourself to act against them. This is the basis for spiritual wellness. Feel free to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out my IDEA profile at http://www.ideafit.com/profile/shawn-fears.
