Today we look at spiritual health or wellness and the affect living with purpose has on it. Makes no difference which spirituality or religion you follow.
We live in a very diverse society and as a result, some folks will have different beliefs than others. Even within faiths, there are vast differences in beliefs.
In the end, living with purpose and intention has shown to be beneficial, no matter what your belief.
Having a purpose is a primal human need. We want to feel needed and we need to know that we’re making a difference.
This leaves us feeling fulfilled, happy, and complete. That’s why living with purpose is so important and why it is good for your spiritual health.
The Need To Be Needed
We enjoy it when others need us. We’re prone to sadness and loneliness when we can’t help those around us and make a difference in their lives.
Having a purpose and living with purpose allows us to do that on a regular basis. It fulfills the need to be needed.
The Need To Find Meaning In Life
Another common human desire or need is to find meaning in life. We don’t like to feel like we’re wasting our time here.
Living with purpose gives meaning to each day. That, in turn, makes us feel happier and more fulfilled.
The Need To Have Hope
At the end of the day, even when things seem bad, we need to have hope. Having a purpose means we have a plan and we have something to strive towards.
That’s hope in action.
It is hope that we’ll make a difference. It’s hope that things we’ll make our situation better. And it is hope that we can get ourselves out of the hole we may find ourselves in.
The Need For Values
We also need sound values to live a happy and fulfilled life. Our values are like a compass that guides us along the way.
If you’re a parent, you know how important it is to impart strong values on your children. Without them, they feel lost and insecure.
That can add a lot of stress and unhappiness.
We’re no different as adults. Living our life with purpose by default provides us with a strong set of values to live by.
Living with purpose is good for the mind and spirit. It allows you to live a more fulfilling and happier life and make a difference in the world.
