Wellness Quiz
There are eight dimensions of Wellness. In order to achieve overall wellness one must be balanced in their attempts to achieve optimal wellness. An individual should participate in all eight areas to some degree. The listed activities are believed to be some of the most common among individuals 20-75 years of age. This “test” is only intended to provide insight into one’s strong and weak wellness areas. To complete the quiz, place an X (or the point value) in the appropriate box (daily, weekly, or monthly) for each activity. To score your quiz: give yourself 3 points for each activity marked as daily, 2 points for each marked weekly, and 1 point for each marked monthly. The total for each section should be written on the line following each category. For an overall score add up each section score and place on the line at the end of the quiz. If you never participate in a certain activity, leave that row blank. No points should be listed. After you have completed each wellness area add these scores together to get a grand total.
