Introduction: Awareness of resilience and its relationship with a healthy lifestyle has a significant impact on improving working conditions, personal life, and psychological issues of people. The present study was conducted to investigate the status of resilience and health-promoting lifestyle, as well as the relationship between them, in the staff of Shahid Yahyanejad Hospital in Babol, northern Iran.
Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional study was performed during March-June 2021. Questionnaires related to resilience and health-promoting lifestyle were completed by individuals. The range of total resilience and health-promoting lifestyle scores were 0-100 and 52-208, respectively. Higher scores indicate better status of individuals. Data underwent the descriptive and Pearson correlation coefficient analyses.
Results: Finally, a total of 207 people were included in the study, of whom 104 (50.2%) were male and 103 (49.8%) were female. The mean scores of resilience and health-promoting lifestyle among the staff were 62.75 and 131.69, respectively. There was a significant direct correlation between resilience and health-promoting lifestyle (correlation coefficient = 0.555, p<0.001). There were also significant direct correlations between health-promoting lifestyle and different dimensions of resilience.
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, the total mean scores of resilience and lifestyle-promoting health were moderate. There was also a direct correlation between resilience and health-promoting lifestyle. It is suggested to teach the resilience skills to the staff and propel them to lifestyles and behaviors that improve their health and raise their tolerance threshold in facing the problems.
