Abstract

Background: Ensuring individuals’ health and well-being has always been important in all societies, and its promotion is considered one of the essential factors in the development of any country. Hence, this study examined the association between happiness and spiritual well-being (SWB) in students.

Methods: The present cross-sectional study was conducted on 376 students who were selected by stratified simple random sampling from Hamadan universities in Iran in June 2020. A three-part questionnaire, including a socio-demographic questionnaire, Oxford Happiness Inventory, and SWB questionnaires was used to collect the data. The SPSS software (version 23) was then employed to analyze the data, and the significance level was considered at P<0.001.

Results: Based on the results, the mean (±standard deviation) scores of happiness and SWB were 36.73±17.63 and 90.87±16.96, respectively. In addition, there was a significant correlation between SWB and the total and happiness dimensions (P<0.001). Furthermore, the simple linear regression analysis results revealed that the students’ SWB (β=0.203, P<0.001) is a predictor of happiness.

Conclusion: In general, students’ happiness and SWB were at a moderate level. Therefore, designing and implementing spirituality-based educational interventions to improve the students’ happiness could be helpful.
