Is your lifestyle as healthy as you think it is? Take the quiz to find out!

Do you live a healthy, balanced lifestyle, or is it possible that your lifestyle isn’t actually as healthy as you think it is?

I created this quiz because that’s an important question for us all to answer, no matter where you might be in your healthy living journey.

Whether you’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle for a while now and you feel like you at the “experienced” level, or whether you’re just getting started on your healthy living journey, this quiz is a fun way to help you to see where you are at right now as well as help you to think about where you would like to be in the future.

Read through the questions and answers below and choose which letter (A, B, C, or D) most closely describes you. I know it’s tempting to pick the answer that is the one that you think you should choose or that you wish were true of you, but as much as you can try to be honest with yourself about which one truly does describes you the most accurately.

If you answered mostly A’s…

You’re on the path toward living a healthier lifestyle, but you’re not as healthy as you’d like to be. Life keeps getting in the way, and it’s hard to find the time to be healthier. And, even if you had all the time in the world, trying to live a healthier lifestyle can be very overwhelming at times, and it’s hard to even know where to start. Every step in you’ve made in the right direction is still good progress, though, and small steps count, too! 

If you answered mostly B’s…

You’ve made several positive changes and you’ve made some good progress on your journey toward living a healthier lifestyle. You’re still not quite as far along on that journey as you’d like to be, though, and you know that you still have a little ways to go before your lifestyle is as healthy as you want it to be. The good news, though, is that you’ve already come so far from how your lifestyle used to be, and you’ve made a lot of steps in the right direction!

If you answered mostly C’s…

You’ve made a lot of positive changes and you’re well on your way toward living a healthier lifestyle! It’s possible, though, that some of the things you’re doing that you think are healthy, might not actually be as healthy as they seem. A big part of living a healthy lifestyle, is balance, and your healthy living habits might not be as balanced as they could be. The good new is, though, that you’ve already come so far on your healthy living journey, and all you need is a few tweaks to live a more balanced healthy lifestyle. 

If you answered mostly D’s…

You’ve made a lot of positive changes in your lifestyle, and you live a very healthy life! You know how to make good choices when it comes to your health, and you make your healthy lifestyle a priority. It’s important, though, to make sure that you continue to approach your healthy lifestyle in a balanced way, because even the healthiest people can easily let things get out of balance in their attempt to achieve a higher level of health. 

I’d love to help you to continue to strive for that balance because the healthy living journey is always easier when you have other people to encourage you along the way.
