Often times we are so busy trying to keep up with our day-to-day tasks that we forget to step back and take a look at the big picture. Do you ever take the time to think about your overall quality of life? In other words, how satisfied are you with your life?
Taking the time to reflect on your quality of life is especially important if you have been diagnosed with Heart Failure because it will ensure that you are making yourself a priority. Reflecting on your quality of life will help you to identify what is going well versus what is not. Once you identify any areas of concern, you can work on them with your loved ones and/or your health care team using the Circle of Support.
To make it easy for you, we created a new tool called 'Rate my Health' which contains a few multiple choice questions to help you reflect upon various aspects of your well-being including physical, social, and emotional health. Your responses are automatically stored for you so that you can track your progress over time.
