Spiritual Fitness

As we go on with our daily lives, some of us create routines to exercise our physical and mental muscles. But less often do we include exercises to maintain our spiritual wellness. "Spiritual wellness in this context means belonging to something at large which provides you with a sense of direction through values and principles that you can live by."

One common interpretation is that it is all about finding the purpose of one's life as Mark Twain famously said: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why."
