Spirituality Matters With Seniors

According to Psychology Today, adults who have a strong belief in a higher power or a sense that there is a higher being often live healthier lives.

Faith and spirituality are an important part of most people’s lives. Many feel a need to believe in something greater than ourselves. Whether it is religion-based spirituality, faith in nature, or a deep sense of philosophy, many are drawn towards spirituality. The benefits of a connection to spirit include: • living a happier, more fulfilled life • experiencing lower incidences of stress and depression • feeling more resilient and better able to cope with challenges • having stronger, more positive family relationships. Some researchers say these benefits can be linked to the sense of peace and purpose that comes from believing you are part of a greater plan. Seniors tend to focus more on their spirituality as they age. Growing older brings new challenges and experiences, for which science offers exploration and enlightenment, but not comfort. As seniors age, they tend to feel an increasing need to explore and search for answers to the big questions that take center stage, and they often develop their spirituality to proceed on this journey. If you are an older adult who is just beginning a spiritual journey, know that there is no one way to go about it. Many experts say the key is to follow the direction your spirit is encouraging you to take.
