10 Questions to Determine Your Quality of Life



The fact is, we could all take better care of ourselves – physically and emotionally. For some of us, that may mean getting more exercise, losing weight, or eating a healthier diet. For others, it may mean learning how to make time for the people we care about or learning how to manage stress so we have the energy to meet the challenges that come our way each day. Here are 10 questions to ask yourself to gauge which areas might need some tweaking.

  1. Do you have regular checkups?

  2. Do you exercise for at least 30 minutes 4 or more days a week?

  3. Do you eat balanced meals?

  4. Do you get close to 8 hours of sleep most nights?

  5. Do you follow your doctor’s advice to quit smoking, lose weight, or limit your consumption of alcohol?

  6. Are you often irritable or short-tempered with people you care about?

  7. Do you have frequent headaches or stomachaches?

  8. Do you feel sad or very often cry for no reason?

  9. Do you often feel too busy and “stressed”?

  10. Do you have social, medical, or financial worries caused by drugs, alcohol, gambling, or shopping?

If you answered “No” to any of the first five questions, these are the areas to work on with your physical health.

If you answered “Yes” to any of the last five questions, these are the areas to pay attention to with your emotional health.
