How spirituality promotes health and healing

When an accident causes you injury, your first concern is getting better. This involves medical treatment, medication, physical therapy and other tools to help you recover as quickly and completely as possible. One resource you may be underestimating, however, is spirituality. 

Whether or not you attend church, and no matter what religion you associate yourself with (if any), studies show that prioritizing spirituality has a positive impact on your health, shares the American Academy of Family Physicians. The body, mind and spirit are all connected, so it is no surprise that the health or harm of one area affects the others.

What is spirituality?

Spirituality is simply the term to describe how you find meaning in life and obtain comfort, hope and peace. This broad definition means that the way you go about pursuing these ideals is customizable. Common ways people practice spirituality include the following:

  • Attending church
  • Praying and/or meditating
  • Being physically active
  • Connecting with nature
  • Creating or partaking in music and art
  • Living according to personal values and principles
  • Volunteering in the community and serving others
  • Participating in meaningful rituals

No matter which ones you choose, the important thing is to do them to reap the benefits.

How does spirituality affect health?

Spirituality offers a way to handle stress and other life challenges, and it is a form of self-care. It fosters connection with others, providing a strong support system during health crises. These traits not only help you to heal faster from sickness and injury but also prevent poor health in general. You are less likely to develop medical conditions when you take care of yourself, find purpose in life and have strong relationships with others.

For example, Reader’s Digest reports that faith and heart health go hand in hand. Patients who had open-heart surgery and relied on religious beliefs had three times the survival rates of those who had no spiritual focus. When you are injured, now is the time to begin or intensify your spiritual practices to improve your chances of recovery.
