Spiritual Wellness Inventory Checklist

There is nothing new in the idea that health involves our spirit and mind as well as our body, although different traditions and religions emphasize this in different ways.  Spiritual wellness enhances the connection between your mind, body and spirit.

 

Spiritual wellness includes:

  • a sense of purpose and meaning for life
  • learning how to experience love, joy and fulfillment
  • personal ethics, values and code of living

 

Assessing your Spiritual Wellness

This is the Spiritual Wellness Inventory Checklist from the Government of British Columbia's Spiritual Wellness Website.

Scoring your Spiritual Wellness Inventory

To find your score, give yourself one point for every "yes". 

9 or more = excellent, your habits are enhancing your health

6-8 = average, you are obviously trying but there is room for improvement

5 or fewer = below average, there is room for improvement in your daily habits

 

How do you feel about your spiritual health?  Spiritual health, like physical health, requires exercise and a good diet.  At CNC Interfaith Chaplaincy, we are happy to talk with you about steps you can take to improve your satisfaction and spiritual health.
