Dedication to God or a "higher power" translated into less stress reactivity, greater feelings of well-being, and ultimately even a decreased fear of death.
The world is at the verge of reaching its highest potential in terms of development. The growth reached to its peak. The matters which were not even dreamt is now availed. Our strength lies within our mental innovation and emotional stability.
Since we are developing gradually the level of peace keep on diminishing. This significantly affects the human civilization resulting into havoc, pressure, tension and others. In such condition where growth and development is equally required along with the harmony, it becomes necessary to be focused in such activities which will not only rejuvenate oneself from the schedule but also it brings peace, mental focus and help oneself to control the senses, which is essentially required.
21st century is an era of Innovation and information, at the cost of human values we reached the pioneer. The research based on spirituality says that it help people to divert the mind and get focused on an energetic field which develops the AURA.
There are a number of different reasons why people may turn to spirituality, including but not limited to:
To find purpose and meaning: Exploring spirituality can help people find answers to questions they have about philosophical questions such as "what is the meaning of life?" and "what purpose does my life serve?"
To cope with feelings of stress, depression, and anxiety: Spiritual experiences can be helpful when coping with the stresses of life.
To restore hope and optimism: Spirituality can help people develop a more hopeful outlook on life.
To find a sense of community and support: Because spiritual traditions often involve organized religions or groups, becoming a part of such a group can serve as an important source of social support.
While specific spiritual views are a matter of faith, research has demonstrated some of the benefits of spirituality and spiritual activity. The results may surprise no one who has found comfort in their religious or spiritual views, but they are definitely noteworthy in that they demonstrate in a scientific way that these activities do have benefits for many people.
The following are a few more of the many positive findings related to spirituality and its influence on physical and mental health:
Research has shown that religion and spirituality can help people cope with the effects of everyday stress. One study found that everyday spiritual experiences helped older adults better cope with negative feelings and enhanced positive feelings.
Research shows that older women are more grateful to God than older men, and they receive greater stress-buffering health effects due to this gratitude.
According to research, those with an intrinsic religious orientation, regardless of gender, exhibited less physiological reactivity toward stress than those with an extrinsic religious orientation. Those who were intrinsically oriented dedicated their lives to God or a "higher power," while the extrinsically oriented ones used religion for external ends like making friends or increasing community social standing.
This, along with other research, demonstrates that there may be tangible and lasting benefits to maintaining involvement with a spiritual community. This involvement, along with the gratitude that can accompany spirituality, can be a buffer against stress and is linked to greater levels of physical health.
Thus, spirituality or spiritualism never be an option to get associated with a religious group but to get oneself out of the misery of material world, which gives strength, moral support and finding divinity in all aspects of the world.
