Bienestar Plenitud is a critical part of mental wellness and often the basis for treatment at drug rehab centers, eating disorder residential programs, and trauma recovery facilities. While it is a broad topic, it generally refers to one’s ability to feel and express normal human emotions like happiness, sadness and anger; to love and be loved; and to have a sense of self-worth, self-acceptance and optimism.
A person can practice spiritual wellness in many ways, including prayer, meditation, spending time outdoors or with nature and deep listening to others. It can also be about finding meaning in life through a belief system or personal values and ethics.
The Art of Self-Care: Prioritizing Your Emotional and Spiritual Health
Practicing spiritual wellness can help people become empowered by detaching from their circumstances and observing them with clarity and integrity. They may learn to view problems as challenges that can be overcome with faith and perseverance. In addition, they can gain a stronger sense of control over their emotional and mental health by understanding that they are not defined by their struggles or setbacks.
Research has shown that spiritual wellness is a predictor of psychological well-being. This is a direct effect and may also be through the indirect relationship of health-related behaviors and spirituality (Alwin and Hauser, 1975). The FACIT 12 manual scoring guide was used with some items reverse scored, acknowledging that not everyone has a religious faith. The outcome variable was measured using the global psychological well-being scale, and resiliency and meaning were entered as additional predictors into a stepwise linear multiple regression model.
