EVERYDAY H.E.R.O. ASSESSMENTRyan J. Hulbert, Ph.D.
There is a hero in each of us. Heroes are everyday people who consistently do simple, little healthy behaviors. As result, when placed in a very challenging situation, their everyday habits cause them to act in heroic ways. Even though such people may never be placed in a "high profile" situation, there is nothing more heroic than faithfully doing simple healthy things over a lifetime.
In this assessment, such simple healthy habits are categorized into 4 areas:
Resistant to Substance Abuse
The healthy habits in each category are self-explanatory, except for in the category of Enlivened Psychologically, which requires some training.
