Week 4: Explore Your Spirituality
Your spiritual journey is such a personal one. Whether or not you believe in a higher power, having the ability to connect with something (or someone) other than yourself can be important. This article breaks down the essentials of spirituality and is a great guide to understanding what the purpose of spirituality is and how it can manifest itself in our lives. Some reasons why we turn to spirituality can include wanting to find a sense of optimism and hope, and also find a community of people who share the same beliefs as you. If you’re feeling lost, trying to capture some form of connection and find the spiritual side of yourself can be a beneficial tool to understanding your mind and how you want to exist in the world. In this experience, there is no right or wrong decision—rather, what makes you feel whole and fulfilled.

Ideally, doing your own research and learning will guide you in the best direction to start your spiritual journey. But hopefully, these resources and thoughts will get you thinking about how you want to make connections with yourself, others or the world.
