Prioritizing Optimal Health & Well-being at McMaster

Spirituality and Health & Well-being

Spiritual health and well-being includes expanding our sense of purpose and meaning in life. It encourages spiritual reflection on values, identity, worldview, meaning-making, and personal development, and the effort to serve and live from these values on campus, within a diversity of cultures and faiths, and in society.

How is spirituality related to health?

Some research shows a connection between your beliefs and your sense of well being. Positive beliefs, comfort, and strength gained from religion, meditation, and prayer can contribute to well being. It may even promote healing. Improving your spiritual health may not cure an illness, but it may help you feel better.
