Do You Have a Wellness Lifestyle?

Take the Quiz

Place a checkmark in the column that best describes your most common behavior.  As you read each item, pay attention to your inner voice. Is it saying, “Yeah right, no way can I do that”? Or is it saying, “YES! I do that” or “I’d like to be doing that.” Be gentle, be open, and be honest.

This quiz will give you a better understanding of what a wellness lifestyle consists of.



Not true

Wellness Lifestyle Behavior

1. I regularly practice stress management techniques such as meditation/prayer, positive self-talk, mindfulness, or deep breathing so I feel pretty calm and contented throughout the day.

2. My personal relationships are positive and supportive. I limit time spent with people who are unsupportive, stress carriers, or who bring me down.

3. I regularly move my body so that it stays fit, strong and energetic.

4. I manage my finances well (e.g., pay bills on time, save, invest, do not over-spend).

5. I have a supportive network of health care professionals and/or a community of health information and support (e.g., dentist, physician, alternative health practitioners, eye doctor, chiropractor, massage therapist, and/or co-workers/friends/family members) whom I trust and rely on to help me stay optimally healthy.

6. I practice good self-care habits (e.g., I usually get the right amount of sleep for my body and wake up feeling well-rested; I drink at least 8 cups of water a day; I take time for rest and rejuvenation; I practice daily health habits).

7. My diet is rich in whole foods that are simply prepared. I rarely eat processed, convenience foods, pre-packaged or fast food.

8. I am a positive role model of health and well-being for my family/kids, friends, and colleagues.

9. I am immune to the persuasive efforts of the mass media to encourage negative health habits like over-spending, eating junk food, drinking soda, watching too much TV, or being overwhelmed and stressed.

10. I do not rush through life. I pay attention to the sights, smells, sounds, textures, and other sensual cues around me. Through my senses, I experience pleasurable moments throughout the day.

11. I spend time in nature every day. I am rejuvenated and inspired by the seasons and appreciate the weather – whatever it is.

12. During the day, I take time to live mindfully. I chew my food slowly and pleasurably, I breathe deeply, and I listen carefully when others are speaking to me. I make space in life to tune in. I rarely multi-task.

13. I have a positive attitude about life. I see the “up” side of life and feel very connected to the Universe.

14. I manage my life well. I stay on top of things and take care of situations before they become problems. I’m proactive and prepared for emergencies so things don’t usually surprise me and get out of hand. My life feels in balance.

15. I live in a nurturing home environment. My home is my sanctuary. It is uncluttered, organized, and very pleasing to me.

This quiz isn’t meant to make you feel bad or to judge your lifestyle. Rather, the purpose is to enhance your awareness of how your lifestyle compares to a wellness lifestyle. It’s a gauge. The quiz also gives you an opportunity to envision yourself benefiting from a wellness lifestyle.
