In today's fast-paced world, where the quest for personal fulfillment and understanding often takes a backseat to more immediate concerns, spirituality emerges as a beacon of introspection and peace. But what exactly is spirituality, and how does it integrate into our modern lives? This FAQ aims to delve into the essence of spirituality, exploring its role in personal development, its intersection with research and data, and its significance in overall wellness. We will also discuss how spirituality resonates with young people and examine how digital platforms like Skylight can nurture this spiritual journey, helping individuals cultivate a richer, more grounded life.

What is spirituality?

The definition and interpretation of spirituality are extremely personal. The term "spirituality" refers to a broad range of ideas, customs, and experiences that have to do with the soul or spirit of a person and their relationship to something bigger than themselves. It transcends religious practices and can be viewed as a common, but unique, human experience.

Spirituality also isn’t this mystical, intangible thing. Spirituality is something that can be measured in some ways or even in relation to something. For example, with the data we’ve collected here at Skylight, when we’ve looked at people who use prayer or meditation we’ve found these people may feel more grounded and calm, and feel some kind of positive effect to their day-to-day lives. There are real life applications to spirituality and the affects it can have on an individual.

What does spirituality have to do with research and data?

There is a world where both of these things merge and there is a place for it. We believe Skylight is that place.

We look at real-life data from our app and ask how our are users using the app, where do they spend the most time, why are these users using the app? We want to know if the app works, and if it’s actually helping you on your spiritual journey!

What part does spiritual wellness play in a person's overall wellness?

Spiritual wellness is integral to not only a person's physical, emotional and social wellness - but we think it’s all inter-related. When you’re struggling in one area, you begin to struggle in all areas of your well-being. Strengthening your spiritual wellness deepens your relationship with a higher power, but also helps your mental health, overall happiness, and emotional well-being.

How do young people identify spiritually?

Spirituality is a complicated topic among young people. When you’re a young adult, you spend so much of your time exploring who you are and who you want to become. Part of that is exploring spirituality and your relationship with God.


Through this exploration of spirituality, it becomes clear that this aspect of human experience plays a crucial role in shaping a holistic sense of self.
