Background & objectivesHealth promotion lifestyle includes actions and beliefs that persuade people to stay healthy and protect them against disease. This study was conducted to investigate some aspects of lifestyle of rural primary health-care workers (Behvarzes) in Khalkhal and Kosar counties.
MethodsIn this cross-sectional study, 120 Behvarzes were recruited in Khalkhal and Kosar counties. Data were gathered using a questionnaire consisting demographic information and walker Health Promotion Life Style (HPLP) Questionnaires. Statistical tests including the descriptive statistics, independent t-test, ANOVA and Welch's strong test followed by Tukey's post hoc test were performed using SPSS (v.20).
ResultsThe Mean age of participants were 40±4.6 years and the majority of them were female (66%). The overall score of HPLP was 2.3±0.62, and the highest and lowest scores were observed in “Spiritual Growth” and “Interpersonal Relations” dimensions, respectively. There was a significant statistical relationship between different dimensions of lifestyle and demographic variables including "physical activity" and age; "interpersonal support" and gender and marital status and "self-actualization" and gender and finally, overall score of lifestyle and work experience respectively.
ConclusionBased on the results of the present study, health promotion behaviors in Behvarzes (rural health care providers), were not favorable in comparison with similar studies.

In both sexes, the lowest score was seen in the "Interpersonal Relations" dimension.
