Abstract: Straipsnyje analizuojamos dvasingumo ir sveikatai palankios gyvensenos sąsajos suaugusiojo amžiuje. Tyrime da-lyvavo 400 lietuvių (168 (42 proc.) vyrai ir 232 (58 proc.) moterys) nuo 18 iki 89 metų amžiaus (amžiaus vidurkis – 40,6±17,9). Vertinant sveikatai palankią gyvenseną taikytas 5 faktorių sveikatingumo klausimynas (5F-WEL). Dvasingumas vertintas kasdienės dvasinės patirties skale (DSES). Rezultatai parodė, kad amžius ir lytis buvo reikš-mingai susiję su dvasingumu – vyresnio amžiaus ir moteriškosios lyties tiriamieji nurodė patiriantys daugiau įvai-rių dvasingumo apraiškų kasdieniame gyvenime nei jaunesnio amžiaus ir vyriškosios lyties asmenys. Įvertinus dvasingumo ir sveikatai palankios gyvensenos sąsają nustatyta, jog dvasingumas buvo reikšmingai susijęs su svei-katai palankia gyvensena atsižvelgiant į lyties, amžiaus ir išsilavinimo veiksnius
Despite spectacular advances in technology and science, 90% of the world’s population is in-volved in some form of religious or spiritual practice. Strong evidence exists, that spirituality as a part of life is universal. Spirituality, health and healing are deeply rooted and closely bound in traditions of many cultures. However health and spirituality research for many years was not a case for the health sciences. There is substantial literature that relates spirituality to a better mental and physical health. Scientific evidence suggests that religion is a powerful coping behavior; religious beliefs provide a sense of meaning, po-sitive world view and psychological integration. Religion provides group connectedness, social resources and mental attitude, which promotes healthy behavior. However, the nature of this relationship is not clear enough. Some evidence suggests that not all religious activities are really beneficial. Better health is positively linked with religion that is internalized, intrinsically motivated, and based on secure relationship with God. Lithu-ania is post soviet country, where several generations grew up in context of suppressed religiousness. Some scientists indicate that there is a gap between declared religious identity and deep religious experience in Li-thuania. So the questions arise: How important is daily spiritual experience in Lithuanian adult sample? What are age and gender trends? Is the spirituality-health (wellness) relationship valid in Lithuanian context? Methods. This study examines the relationship between spirituality and wellness in adulthood. 400 Li-thuanian adults, 168 (42%) males and 232 (58%) females, mean age 40.6 (SD17.9), ranging from 18 to 89, par-ticipated in the study. For assessment of wellness Five Factor Wellness Inventory (5F-WEL, Myers, Sweeney, 2005) was used. [...]
