Health Quotient – Evaluating Your HQ

Health Quotient (HQ)

A Simple Health Evaluation Tool

Instructions for using the Health Quotient (HQ)

For each item indicate how often you do each item. If never or rarely (1 to 3 times a month), enter a zero; if sometimes (1 to 2 days a week), enter a 3; if most of the time (4 or more times a week), enter a 6; if daily (6 or 7 days a week), then enter a 10.  Total both scores and subtract the Factors Minimizing Health from the Factors Maximizing Health. The result is your HQ.

It is possible to get a negative score (factors minimizing health outweigh the factors maximizing health).  A maximum HQ of 150 would indicate superior health.  A score of 100 to 125 should be a good intermediary goal for most of us.  A score of 60 to 100 represents sub-optimal health even though there may be no current symptoms. A score of less than 60 will be problematic for most people and requires improvement. By looking at both the positive and negative elements relating to health, you can make some practical adjustments to meet your personal health objectives.
