Aurelie L Feeling pretty healthy! And improving over the years as well.
This short form (36 questions) is a typical general health survey used in health research: http://www.rand.org/health/surveys_tools/mos/mos_core_36item_survey.html By answering each question honestly, you'll have a good idea of how healthy you are right now (no answers or interpretations of your scores are provided). Your responses to the first 2 questions are an excellent guide used worldwide by healthcare providers and public health researchers to rate your health!
Rate Your General Health Challenge rules
- Complete the 11 sections of this Short Form (36 items) General Health Status Questionnaire as honestly as you can--your first response is usually the most accurate so don't agonize over each item.
- Use your responses as a general guideline to assess your own general health status right now. What do you think you need to do to improve your health?
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“What a POINTLESS exercise that was! The challenge is to 'rate' your general health so what is the point of a health survey or assessment that fails to do this? There isn't even a simple tally system (tally your scores and if you fall within range x you are y), so save yourselves the bother folks.”

Enya R I guess I'm pretty healthy then :) amazingly... Considering my internal health issues don't totally match the outside look hahaha :) but since I've been on here, last week from Monday to Sunday, I worked out 11.5hrs
Kirsten M Ok so did the survey and apart from trying to work less physically outside which is impossible as a farmers wife I'm absolutely tickety boo! Yahoo!
Casey K I can always focus on my diet a bit more to truly be healthy. Its easy to indulge. Keeping a wide variety is key!
Jain W Ok so that was a painless challenge!! Quite interesting -I wasn't expecting to be able to rate myself so highly - I'm healthier than I gave myself credit for!!
Rick P encouraged this.
The link you posted under the instructions is hard to know where to go from there. So I found this link under how to that you posted: http://www.rand.org/health/surveys_tools/mos/mos_core_36item_terms.html

Dwight W Here's what I was able to pull, hope it helps those having trouble. Just not sure if this is going to work.

Kirstin M responded to the guide Measuring Healthy Days is a More Accurate Estimation of Health
This seems to be a great way to judge how you are doing, simple but very effective, as with all surveys, you must answer honestly. Although how silly if you tried to fake this, you are playing with your health and ultimately your life
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
