Today – My Spiritual Needs

What are you planning to do today to take care of your spiritual needs?

We all should spend some time renewing ourselves in our spiritual dimension.  Now when I say spiritual, I don’t necessarily mean “religious,” although that is how some people choose to express their spiritual nature.  There are many factors that contribute to our spiritual selves which ultimately encompasses how we view the world, how we make sense of the world around us, or what guides us and gives meaning to our existence.  Your spiritual dimension is at the heart of your value system, your worldview, whatever it takes to uplift you and inspire you.  Whether that is listening to or playing music, reading classic literature, spending time in meditation or prayer, attending a gathering of likeminded people or studying quietly on your own – whatever does it for you, make sure you are replenishing yourself regularly in that area.

Do any of these suggestions make sense for you?  Are there other approaches you take to renewing your spiritual self that you’ve found helpful?  Either way, make sure you are staying disciplined to do something for yourself spiritually on a daily basis.

If you’d like to chat with one of our peer supporters who can help you with this and other stress management approaches, please send a message to m.me/callforbackup.org and we’d be happy to make that happen.
