What You’ll Learn
- Defining Spirituality
- The Effect of Spirituality on Health
- How Meaning Keeps Us Young
Like it or not, humans are wired to seek spirituality. However you define it; belief in a higher power, connection with others, or oneness with the entire universe, spirituality is in simple terms, a way to access the metaphysical parts of ourselves.
What do humans gain from spirituality? For many, spirituality is a means of finding meaning and purpose, coping with negative emotions such as stress and anxiety, and building community.
Research has shown that spiritual traditions like religion are powerful tools in helping people handle difficult situations such as the loss of a loved one or receiving a devastating diagnosis. But the benefits go beyond just feel-good emotions.
Multiples studies have reported consistent links between spiritual practices and better health such as reducing the recovery time from acute and chronic diseases, alleviating mental illness, and even improving outcomes of substance abuse.
“I don’t think that we can really separate body, mind, spirit, and energy… if you’re wavering physically, really just work on the mental, spiritual, and energetic aspects of yourself.”
In their conversation on the Rachel Varga Podcast, Rachel and Caspar look into the role of spirituality in aging and conclude that, much like degenerative diseases, aging is accelerated when we lack a sense of meaning and purpose.
By cultivating a spiritual practice that caters to the spirit, mind, and body, we can offset aging and restore our health down to a cellular level.
