As of research, there are various concepts revolving around spirituality- research says all of them are appropriate and correct. The reason behind this is that what works for another person might not work for the other one. Spirituality basically depends on trust and beliefs. Spirituality is a desire to understand the purpose behind everything or maybe we can say steeped. Basically, knowing the reason behind everything can be defined as spirituality. Spirituality includes prayer, mindfulness, yoga, meditation, walking, and journaling. Finding peace and calmness in such things is to be spiritual.
