This assessment is designed as an awareness tool to guide your healing journey – and you can use it as a starting assessment as well as for noting progress on your healing journey.

This assessment is just for you – for your own evaluation of your healing progress.

A – Rarely or not at all
B – Sometimes
C – Regularly
D – Frequently

In the past month…

  1. I feel lonely – and alone.

  2. I am worried and anxious.

  3. I don’t get much exercise.

  4. I eat poorly (processed, junk, and sugary items).

  6. I am mostly sedentary.

  7. I struggle with regular, good sleep.

  8. I beat myself up over some decisions/actions.

Scoring: There is no scale for judging your results; the key here is awareness. If you have many more C and D choices marked off, then it’s clear you have had some struggles, but it should also help bring some insights into your healing journey.
