So…hows your “Personal Vitality” these days?

Leave a comment

This week I had to take my annual IBM health assessment to get a  rebate on my health insurance premiums.  I figured it was worth my time to save $150 bucks.  Usually, I breeze through these things because they seems like such a formality, but this time I was intrigued by the survey questions in my “Personal Vitality Assessment.”

I got to thinking…rather than always focusing on my fitness or nutrition, I should frequently take a step back and think about my overall vitality.  Personal vitality measures overall health in 4 key areas:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Purpose – INTERESTING!  (I very much believe that having a sense of individual life purpose is absolutely fundamental to personal happiness and contentment – read more)

Here’s a snap shot of (what I thought) were the most interesting parts of the Personal Vitality assessment.  As you can see, some of my responses are included.  I was going to hide them, but figured you guys would appreciate the honesty/transparency…

PART 1

 

PART 2

I think we could all benefit by asking ourselves these questions on a regular basis.    Doing so may help us understand the areas in our life and in our health habits that need more attention.

Give yourself a Personal Vitality assessment and let me know how it goes – don’t forget an action plan!
