Adjustment to chronic diseases is a fundamental strategy for patients' greater satisfaction with individual and social life, as well as to improve their level of performance and efficiency. In addition to causing biological disorders, these diseases cause problems and mental disorders for patients that reduce their resilience in life. Adaptation to chronic illness reduces abnormal psychological outcomes and increases their life satisfaction. Anxiety, stress and depression caused by chronic diseases in the context of the global corona outbreak, due to the frightening and mysterious nature of the virus, and its high mortality rate, have been added to the anxiety caused by chronic disease. Therefore, in order to adapt to chronic diseases in pandemic conditions, more efforts are needed and it is necessary to revise the traditional protocols and adapt them to the current conditions. Among the factors that are effective in reducing the psychological consequences of chronic diseases, spirituality plays an important role, which is described in this article.
