Congratulations! You have struck the perfect balance in your life! Your social life is just where you need it to be, you are good to your body, and you're even great at finding ways to relax when it becomes necessary. Remember that your body and mind are connected, so make an effort to stay happy as well as healthy. Good job!
You're doing very well! 80% is still better than most of the people who will take this quiz. Even though there are some areas to work on, you are trying to make your strengths work for you as you attempt to get those weak areas under control. Enjoy the journey, and remember... you are worth the effort!
Your overall health isn't so bad. You do try to opt for healthier foods when you can, and you make a real effort to move and work your body. However, you may be neglecting the emotional and mental components of good health. The mind and body can affect each other, so be sure to work on your stress levels and be gentle on yourself when you need to do so.
Your health is about average, but it really does need a bit more extra effort. The good news is that you often practice healthy living without even realizing it -- choosing to nourish yourself with adequate food and rest. You only need a few minor changes to increase your health level. Don't be scared to make small changes that really count!
OK, so maybe this isn't the world's best score. But that's OK! We all need to start somewhere. From time to time, you really do practice a few important parts of good health. But, it will be much better if you consciously decided to eat well, get in some exercise, and maintain that body-mind connection that can help lead you to a better overall state. Good luck!
Do you really think that it's a good idea to eat bacon and syrupy pancakes for breakfast every day, and veg out on the couch half the time? We understand -- life is too short to avoid the good stuff entirely, but it may be time to make some changes. Take a good look at your routines, and try to figure out small changes that you're comfortable making. It can really help you make strides in your health!
