Beschreibung:

Many religious and spiritual beliefs promote wellness through their practices or stated objectives-for example, focusing on simple living, having compassion for others, vegetarianism, or meditation and mindfulness. This refreshing work provides a review of the world's spiritual perspectives and traditions, and explores how their guiding principles encourage healthy lifestyle choices. An examination of religious and nonreligious perspectives from around the world-from atheism, Confucianism, and Christianity to Islam, Judaism, Shamanism, and Zoroastrianism-reveals how faith beliefs and values influence behavior and inspire healthy living.With contributions from leading international scholars, the chapters include a discussion of Eastern and Western world religions and their practices-such as fasting or the avoidance of alcohol and tobacco-and how they may foster healthfulness. A contemporary analysis of current research findings suggests possible interventions that individuals and health providers may utilize to enhance healthfulness. A final chapter explores the connection between health, illness, and religious and nonreligious perspectives.
