Be Present Tip:

Develop an attitude of gratitude. Take a moment today and notice all that you appreciate. Maybe even make a list of the things that you are grateful for. This task might shift your focus from what’s missing or wrong with life to what’s right. See if you can feel grateful for what you have and don’t have. Pause, breathe in and out, and actually focus on the feeling of gratitude. See if you can take that attitude of gratitude with you as you move through your day.

The basis of Spiritual Wellbeing is finding meaning and purpose to our life and our place in the greater universe. Referring to the purpose we discover for ourselves and the unique way that we have chosen to harmonize with the world around us can help us choose actions that are consistent with our personal beliefs and values. Reconciling our actions with our beliefs can be central to the development of spiritual wellbeing, among many other facets of our life.

Spiritual wellbeing can have a dramatic impact on various realms of wellbeing, particularly with respect to finding overall peace, harmony, and happiness with our life and surroundings. Becoming aware of how spirituality weaves into your life can be helpful in developing a integrated, holistic, and balanced self.
