Quality of Life includes all physical, psychological and social aspects of a person’s life
Health / Fitness — How is your daily living affected by medical problems, disease, disability, disorder, pain or discomfort? Do you exercise regularly? What other physical activities do you do regularly? Do you have healthy eating habits? How is your strength and vitality?
Intellectual — Are you able to keep up-to-date on current events, issues and ideas? Do you watch the news on TV, read books, magazines and newspapers, or use the Internet? Do you do crossword puzzles or other challenging games and activities?
Sense of Purpose / Your Role in Life — Do you feel like your life means something, that you have a sense of control of it, that you contribute in a meaningful way, and that you feel like you are participating in something larger than yourself?
Social — Do you take part in activities with other people? In person? Online? Has your social activity increased, decreased or stayed the same in recent years? Or, do you feel lonely much of the time? How often do friends and family visit you?
Emotional — Do you feel positive and enthusiastic about yourself and life? Do you look forward to getting up in the morning? Are you satisfied with your relationships with others?
Spiritual — The vast majority of humans need some meaning to our lives beyond acquiring, consuming and devouring. The search for meaning might be a belief in a benevolent, omniscient God, but spiritual states and beliefs exist for non-believers as well. That search for a sense of believing (along with being, belonging and benevolence) enables us to fulfill and evaluate our lives.
Spirituality gives us a very deep and intimate connection and harmony with life. The sense of community — connection and belonging to something bigger than ourselves, the sense of commitment, moral values and transcendence — are crucial for humans to develop, function, and flourish. This includes tolerance of values and beliefs of others and participating in activities that are consistent with personal values.
