Top 4 Benefits Of Daily Spiritual Practice

Find time for spirituality. Find time for yourself.

You may be a devout follower of institutionalised religion, or of more ‘alternative’ methods. Whatever your preference, a daily spiritual practice, in any form, instils a general sense of balance, tranquility, and organisation.

What are spiritual practices?


There are textbook methods, in their multiple variations:
  1. Yoga
  2. Meditation/Devotional singing
  3. Counselling/Mentorship under seasoned spiritual mentors
  4. Energy cleansing/Chakra healing/Tarot/Astrology etc.
Then, there are therapeutic recreational activities, so called because they’re enjoyable. These include anything from gardening and driving, cooking and sports. What’s so spiritual about them, you might wonder. Well, have you given thought to why they’re so enjoyable? They make you feel like you’re in a natural sanctuary. That’s just another way of saying your Soul is doing what makes It happy, what keeps It in Its element.

What’s ‘spirit’-uality, if not reconnecting with the forgotten/repressed, and the ‘true’ purpose of the Soul?


Why a daily spiritual practice is important:


  1. It’s a daily stress-management technique – Your life is so fast paced, and the onslaught of new information so incessant, you don’t realise how it takes a toll on you; until it reaches worrisome levels. Begin taking 15-30 minutes out of your day for spiritual practice, and you’ll find yourself looking forward to it. This is because you get a chance to shut everything out, and break down whatever’s stressing you, into manageable quantities.
  2. You begin to let go of your attitude complex – One of the early benefits of a regular spiritual practice is a tempering of overcharged emotions. When you begin to understand how/why you’re giving something more importance than it deserves, your attitude changes automatically. You begin to speak/act only as much as required, and you keep repeating such measured reactions, because they make you feel less drained.
  3. Sensitivity and compassion make you more hopeful – You don’t realise what it really means to be empathetic, until you subject yourself to the mandatory self-introspection exercises that spiritual practices expect. When you do, you’re able to see what’s restricting, or ugly, about yourself; and you understand the depths of your emotional cravings. As you visualise what it would do to your Soul to not have these catered to, you begin to treat people/situations/tasks with renewed respect, sincerity, and effort. You begin to feel you’re doing your bit to make a difference, and you are; and this accentuates your optimism and positive outlook towards life.
  4. You grasp the true essence of humility and gratitude – A spiritual practice teaches you mindfulness, or the art of accepting everything as it is, in the moment. From your functioning physical senses and limbs, to your lifestyle and its many offerings, when you observe everything for what it is, you ‘zoom’ into the unique gifts of each. You realise you have more than you believed you did, and maybe more than you deserve – either because of someone else’s efforts, or sheer luck.


With spiritual practices, keep the focus on quality and intention. Be honest about why you’ve driven yourself towards such a practice, and set intentions related to your reasons. Don’t treat your spiritual journey as a means of escapism; this entirely defeats the purpose of self-awareness and realisation!
