Honouring the spirit gives our lives a sense of meaning, purpose and depth. Honouring the spirit also means respecting the dignity of each person and being thankful for the blessings we have. This strategy also encourages us to make time for the things that we need, whether it is reflection, reverence, prayer, meditation or connecting with nature and beauty.

It also encourages us to participate in arts such as painting, dancing, singing and writing, etc. Honouring special events and sharing our stories helps us to connect with the meaning in our lives. We can also honour the spirit by being of service such as volunteering for a cause or helping someone in need. Reading or watching something meaningful can also help us find inspiration and honour our spirit.

What are some of the ways you and your family honour your spirit? Please explain in few sentences.
