Spirituality often enhances health—particularly mental health—regardless of a person’s faith, according to University of Missouri researchers.

“In many ways, the results of our study support the idea that spirituality functions as a personality trait,” said Dan Cohen, assistant teaching professor of religious studies at MU and one of the co-authors of the study. “With increased spirituality, people reduce their sense of self and feel a greater sense of oneness and connectedness with the rest of the universe.”
