Although the specific content of spiritual beliefs varies, all cultures have a concept of an ultimate, transcendent, sacred force.

Exercises for Boosting Spirituality

Cultivate sacred moments in which you set aside time to "just be" with a special/sacred object or space/environment.

Build in spiritual tools as a regular practice (ex: prayer, meditation, exploring nature) or as a way of approaching life (ex: giving charity, showing compassion to less fortunate individuals).

When experiencing trauma or a difficult situation, look for the deeper meaning and purpose of the experience.
