Summary of "Life satisfaction and its relationship with spiritual well-being and religious practice in Iranian adolescent girls."

Introduction During recent years, special attention has been given to spiritual well-being and religious practice in the field of health. This study aimed to determine the predictors of life satisfaction among adolescent girls in Tabriz, Iran, 2015. Materials and methods This cross-sectional study was conducted on 520 female students studying in high schools who were selected using the cluster sampling method. Data collection was carried out through the questionnaires of socio-demographic characteristics, spiritual well-being (SWBS), religious practice (Arcury and colleagues) and life satisfaction (SWLS). Multivariate linear regression model was used for data analysis. Results The mean score of life satisfaction was 22.0 (
SD:
6.0) from the attainable score of 5-35. The mean score (SD) of spiritual well-being was 90.2 (16.2), ranging from 20 to 120. The mean score of the religious practice was 32.1 (10.5) out of the achievable score range of 0-60. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that existential well-being and sufficiency of income for expenses were predictors of life satisfaction and they explained 41.8% of the variance in the life satisfaction score. Conclusion The findings of the present study confirm the importance of existential well-being and a modifiable variable (sufficiency of income) in the life satisfaction. Thus, it is necessary to provide strategies to promote spirituality and improve the income status for improving adolescents' life satisfaction.
