The HPLP II tool consists of 52 health-promoting behavior items that are categorized into six subscales: health responsibility (nine items), spiritual growth (nine items), physical activity (eight items), interpersonal relationships (nine items), nutrition (nine items), and stress management (eight items). A Likert-type scale was used to measure each behavior, with ranges of never (1), sometimes (2), frequently (3), and regularly (4). The total score of the HPLP II ranges from 52 to 208 and is measured by the mean score of the responses to all 52 HPLP items. The total HPLP II score is further classified into four levels: poor for the range 52–90, moderate for the range 91–129, good for the range 130–168, and excellent for the range 169–208. High scores in every subscale mean more frequent health-promoting behaviors.
