What it's all about: Expanding your sense of purpose and meaning in life

Some questions to ask yourself to gauge your Spiritual Wellbeing:

  • Do I engage in self-reflection?
  • Do I engage in spiritual practices?
  • Do my decisions reflect my personal values and belief systems?
  • Do I feel like I have a sense of purpose in my life?
  • Do I seek out meaning in my life?
  • Am I open to experiencing new things?
  • Do I have a good understanding of where I fit into the world?
  • Do I feel a connection to something larger than myself?

Want to increase your Spiritual Wellbeing?

Here are a few suggestions and resources:

  • Start every day remembering your “Why? – Why are you in school, pursuing your career path, on this earth?
  • Explore your inner self. Take time to think about who you are.
  • If you experience a life-changing event, take a few minutes to think about what series of events led to this.
  • Spend time meditating or practicing mindful relaxation.
  • Practice acceptance.
  • Be curious. If something happens that makes you even the slightest bit curious, take a moment to explore the experience a little deeper.
  • If you are religious, stay connected to your religious community or place of worship.
  • Talk to one of the SCC Counseling Faculty members if you want to further cultivate and develop your sense of purpose.
