Relationship between spirituality, anxiety, depression and stress
Spirituality is the quality of being concerned with the consciousness as opposed to physical materials. In this study the degree to which levels of spirituality can be related to the levels of anxiety, depression and stress among young adults were examined. Anxiety is a feeling of unease which is caused due to worry or fear; Depression is a common mental health problem that is induced due to feelings of low mood, and lastly, stress is the body’s reaction to changes that are there due to the physical environment. The aim of the study is to study the relationship between spirituality and anxiety, depression & stress among young adults. The researcher hypothesis is that there will be significant relationship between spirituality and anxiety, depression and stress among young female adults. Additionally, the hypotheses also state that there will be significant relationship between spirituality and anxiety, depression and stress among young male adults. The gathered samples from 60 participants (30 male and 30 female) were used to conduct the study. The participants were asked to fill the Spiritual Intelligence Scale and Anxiety, Depression and Stress Scale. After data collection for analysis of result, mean and correlation were used for the analysis of the data. It was found that spiritual young female adults were also found to have lower levels of anxiety, depression and stress. Meanwhile Spirituality levels didn’t impact the levels of anxiety, depression and stress of young male adults. This reasoning behind this could be the internalization of spirituality among the female participants in comparison of the male participants. Further study on this implication is required.
