Personal Health PassPosted by: | Posted on: March 6, 2009
Sophan, thanks for sharing so much about yourself and your health habits. Health is something that affects each and every one of us, but shapes our lives in different ways. This plan is designed to help you better understand your health. Your Lifestyle Score (94/100) is a summary of how well your health behaviors compare to national recommendations. The average score for all Succeed participants is 76.5. The Lifestyle Score includes behaviors like physical activity, diet, stress management, injury prevention, and more. These are the behaviors that are most likely to influence your risk of death and disease.
A score of 90-100 means you are doing well on your health behaviors. Keep up the good work! Review your guide and use it as a resource if you ever feel you need a boost in one or more areas.
80-89 = Doing well.
60-79 = Could use some improvements.
0-59 = A lot to work on. Start with top behaviors.
How do you feel? You feel that your health is much better than other 32-year-old men with high blood pressure and asthma. In addition, you described both your health and quality of life as very good. There is a direct link between the two. You’ve probably noticed the connection.
Let’s take a look at your health behaviors. For each behavior we determined how you match up to national recommendations. With the chart below, you have a snap shot of where you are doing well and where you may have room for improvement. (Behaviors that have lowered your score include nutrition.)

Are you ready to change? Using the information you provided to us, we have prioritized your behaviors so you’ll know where to focus your attention in order to have the best chance of making or maintaining lasting improvements. If you didn’t seem ready to change an area that needed work, it might not be a top priority. People vary in their readiness for change. The goal is to meet you wherever you are, providing you with individualized strategies to take greater control of your health. Below you’ll see your top behaviors.
