The Spiritual Corner stands for a place where peace can be found amid the chaos between diagnosis and wellness. Most people who are on the journey to wellness will experience the need for a spiritual connection. Our mental health can be affected when we feel disconnected from something greater than ourselves. The Spiritual Corner is a place in your home where you can quiet your mind and connect with an aspect of yourself that inspires you. This might be nature, art, meditation, or any other form of self-care. Your spiritual corner is not about religion and should not be used to judge others. Instead, it should be a safe space for you to go when you need to calm down or recharge. The Spiritual Corner can also have a physical manifestation if you have time and resources to build out a space that feels welcoming and comfortable. Having a spot in your home where you can go to relax and find peace is like having an inner sanctuary built around you.
