Focusing on the present moment rather than thinking about something in the past that has already happened or worrying about what's happening next or something in the future is one of the best ways to engage with spirituality. To boost your spirituality you need to be focused on the here and now.

2. Attempting to live simply

Another easy way to boost your spirituality is to try and live a simplistic life, to cut out a lot of the fuss of modern everyday life, and go back to basics. It's the best way to engage with our natural form, and our natural selves are the closest we can get to attaining our spirituality.

3. Letting your artistic flare flow

Our creativity and artistry are rarely allowed to come out in a free and unfiltered way. But this is a way to boost our spirituality as it is a chance to connect. Often our creativity and spirituality are linked within us. So honoring, rather than subduing our artistry is a great way to achieve this.

4. Think positively

Positive thoughts make our souls lighter and our spirituality stronger. Positivity is such a powerful force and it has the capacity to change not only our mind but also our body as well as boost our spirituality. Being positive and thinking positively sometimes takes conscious effort.

5. Study different spiritualities

Everybody's spirituality may be different. There is no right or wrong, it's all about finding what is right for you. But studying other spiritualities is a great way to boost your own as you learn more and more about different kinds, and allow you to engage with different methods of spirituality.

6. Learning about the power of crystals

Crystals and crystal healing may be another way to boost your spirituality as it works for many people. Try and tap into the power of crystals and learn more about what each crystal offers. These can be something you can easily incorporate into your life.

7. Limit your time with technology

Technology has its benefits, there's no denying it. But it does take us further away from our natural beings. And as we said before, spirituality is linked with being our most natural self. Cutting back and limiting your time with technology could really help to boost your spirituality.

8. Travelling to meaningful places
