Spirituality is an important aspect of living with cancer, including MDS. There is a growing body of evidence indicating that spiritual practices are associated with better health and wellbeing.
Spirituality is a broad concept that is defined in several diverse ways. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all.
Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue. Others may pray or find comfort in a personal relationship with God or a higher power. Still others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art or other aspects of their life or environment.
