Many things influence life satisfaction and make people worry. Religiosity is a way for people to improve satisfaction and reduce worries. In the current study the relationship between religiosity, life satisfaction and everyday worries is assessed. Spirituality is included as well, as for many people spiritual experiences are important, but they do not belong to a specific denomination. A religiosity and aspects of religion and spirituality measure, as well as a life satisfaction and worry questionnaire was used, with a convenience sample and 111 participants filled out the questionnaires. No relationships were found between any of the variables, which can be explained by the sample and, that no other variables, which affect life satisfaction and worries, were controlled for.
