Self-Care Assessment Quiz

Self-Care Assessment

I’ve created this self-care assessment quiz to help you find which areas of your self-care routine needs attention first.

The 6 areas that are included in this self-care assessment are:

  • Physical Self-Care
  • Psychological Self-Care
  • Emotional Self-Care
  • Spiritual Self-Care
  • Relationship Self-Care
  • Workplace Self-Care

You will be asked to identify different self-care routines that you do well and which you don’t do at all or do infrequently.  The quiz will then total your scores in the different areas, so you will know exactly where you need to focus your time and energy.

Welcome to our Self-Care Assessment Quiz

The quiz has 60 questions, covering 6 different topics:

Mind - Relationships - Emotions - Body - Spirituality - Work

At the end of the quiz, you will be asked for your email address so we can send you your results.

You will also receive FREE access to our Self-Care Worksheet printable.

This printable will help you examine your current self-care routines and plan new ones.

Importance of Self-Care

I talk about self-care a lot on this site and there is a good reason for that! You can’t be a good parent, partner, employee, boss… well, ANYTHING, if you are burned out and running on fumes.

Looking after yourself is so important. It might feel selfish, but it’s really not. You MUST look after yourself first. It’s like when you are on an airplane and they do the safety briefing before the flight takes off. When they talk about the oxygen masks descending from the ceilings, they always say to fit your own mask first before helping someone else with theirs. Life is exactly the same! Make sure your oxygen supply is strong before helping others, otherwise it can literally kill you!

Self-Care Struggle

However, as modern humans, we are used to giving so much of ourselves to others that even if we want to put ourselves first, we often don’t even know where to start!

I’ve struggled with this same problem. You feel burned out and on the edge of a break-down, but you have no idea HOW to look after yourself!

In addition to this, we might be looking after ourselves very well in one area but completely ignoring other areas.

Balance is another common theme on this site, but that’s because having a balanced life is vital to having a successful and fulfilling life.

Self-Care Worksheet

Once you’ve finished the Self-Care Assessment Quiz and got your results you will want to start making changes to your routines.

You can go through each area of the Self-Care Assessment and examine your current practices and then plan what new practices and routines you want to establish.

Balanced Life

If you want more of an insight into your life and what areas are out of balance, why not check out my post about starting a Self Reflection Day.

I find it so helpful to take a day (or even a few hours) to myself to truly assess my life and goals. I use this time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. It’s one of my most important self-care routines!

I hope you gain a fresh perspective on your life from taking the self-care assessment. The results should really help you find where you need to improve your self-care routines. Please share in the comments below what you have discovered about yourself!
