Spirituality is an intrinsic part of human life, woven into the fabric of various cultures and personal practices around the world. This article delves into the concept of spiritual wellness, exploring its significance, its impact on our overall well-being, and the unique perspective offered by Skylight on fostering this essential aspect of life.

What is Spiritual Wellness?

Spirituality is a very real part of peoples lives. A large part of this worlds population believes in something spiritual. Whether they have some sort of spiritual component that they engage in, a practice they do, or its part of their culture. It is very integral to our lives and has impact into our daily functions both external and internal.

For some, spiritual wellness is everything! It’s not only about having a connection to something greater than yourself, but it impacts your physical, mental, and emotional wellness! When all those things are grounded it gives you a sense of purpose, and something to hold onto.

We use the term spiritual wellness just like we use the term mental wellness or physical wellness. If you think about it like mental health, physical health is easy to see, but mental health is not, same with spiritual wellness. It doesn’t mean its not real, doesn’t have an impact, and you don’t have to address it.

Why is Spiritual Wellness Important?

Spiritual wellness can help you see that there is more than the day to day life. It helps you look outward and upward, toward the universe and a higher power. Spiritual wellness increases your selflessness. It helps you see that your actions have a greater impact in the long term. An impact that is beyond what you know and what you can see.

How are Mental Wellness and Spiritual Wellness Connected?

As mentioned above, spiritual wellness is very similar to mental wellness. For people who are highly spiritual, they see this specific connection between mental and spiritual health as inseparable. They think, “If I am mentally well I can be spiritually well” and vice versa.  

What makes Skylight spiritual in nature?

We have a focus on a Higher Being. Whether that is God, the Universe, Higher Power, the Divine, Skylight does not define it for you. But we do invite you to connect with this higher being and invite them to bring peace and calm into your life.

We have cultivated exercises that encourage that connection to a higher power! Whether it’s a prayer, meditation, or even affirmations; we do not say what you have to believe in, we just invite your to connect!

When talking to some users, we asked what they use to refer tot this Higher Being. Some use God, others use love! They believe that love is the Higher Being that connects us all and gives us purpose. Both uses can engage in practices in the app!


Spiritual wellness transcends the tangible, offering a pathway to greater self-awareness, purpose, and connection with the universe. It intertwines with mental and emotional well-being, reinforcing the idea that a balanced spirit can lead to a more fulfilling life. By embracing practices that promote spiritual wellness, such as prayer, meditation, or affirmations, individuals can invite peace and clarity into their lives. Skylight provides a platform for this connection, allowing users to explore their spirituality in a way that resonates with them personally. Embracing spiritual wellness can lead to profound personal growth and a deeper understanding of one's place in the world.
