How to Calculate Your Quality of Life

Want to know a quick and easy way to calculate your quality of life?

Here's how.

1. List the following seven aspects of life and give each one a number out of ten for the quality of that area of life for you.


Don't overthink this. Let the answer fall out.

2. Now, add up the numbers for each area of life. For example, if you gave yourself 1 out of 10 for your spiritual area of life, and 7 out of 10 fo rthe mental area of life, then add 1 plus 7 plus the other numbers you gave.

3. You will now have a number somewhere between zero and seventy that describes the sum of your quality of life. Now we're going to average it so we have a really simply picture of your exact quality of life.

The average (arithmetic mean) is the sum of the values divided by the number of values. So the sum of your seven areas of life, divided by seven, is the number you are after.

4. Round the number up to the nearest digit and you now have your overall quality of life, on a scale out of ten! Well done.
