Wellbeing assessment

Wellbeing self-assessment

Wellbeing self-assessment tools can be a helpful way for us to check if we are effectively managing our own physical and mental health and get advice on how we could choose to make improvements.

Below are links to three self-assessment tools that will enable you to learn more about your health and your resilience. Each tool will provide you with tailored feedback along with guidance and recommendations.

  • How Are You? The quiz asks questions about your health behaviours (e.g. physical activity, diet, smoking) to let you know how you are going. It takes about 5-10 minutes to complete and provides links to useful resources, such as apps and web resources.
  • How Resilient Are You? This quiz helps you to assess how resilient you are and provides advice and guidance to become more resilient. It takes 5-10 minutes to complete.
  • i-resilience This can be used alongside the How Resilient Are You? if you would like to get a deeper understanding of your resilience and how you might respond to workplace pressures based on your resilience profile. It takes around 10-15 minutes to complete.

Taking steps to look after your wellbeing can help you deal with pressure, and reduce the impact that stress has on your life. This is sometimes called developing emotional resilience. Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, but also your capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing. Resilience isn't a personality trait – it's something that we can all take steps to achieve (Mind.org.uk).

All of these tools are external and publically available with their own privacy policies. The University of Exeter does not have access to any information that you enter into these tools.
