Spirituality, like food, comes in all forms. Maybe your idea of spirituality is finding solace on a long walk where you feel connected to nature, or perhaps you connect to your local yoga community for a spiritual outlet. There are countless ways to develop your personal faith, and it’s important to remember that we are all connected in the matrix of life.
Consider the last time you sprang for sugar – what was the reason? Often we eat not because of hunger or stress, but due to pure boredom or restlessness. If these emotions resonate with you, perhaps you are unfulfilled due to a lack of spirituality in your life.

Sometimes we simply need a reminder to make our spirituality a priority. Allow yourself a few moments and begin by asking yourself these questions:
- Who am I?
- What do I want?
- What contribution do I want to make to the world?
- What is my story?
If you feel these questions are broad, you’re right! The intention is to internally expand on your answers during meditation or a quiet time in your day. Each time you ask yourself one of these questions, pay attention to how you feel and see if you can find deeper meaning in your answers.
If you enjoy meditating, be sure to schedule times for regular reflection in your planner. Even deep breathing is a great tool – I tell my clients it can apply to almost any scenario. Simply close your eyes, breathing slowly and deeply until you feel calm and in control. You’ll be amazed at how effective it can be!
