The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation of Islamic lifestyle with spiritual and social health from the viewpoint of teachers and principals of Urmia.
Instruments and Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted in 2016 among 320 teachers and secondary school principals of Urmia, who were selected by stratified random sampling method. Data collection tools included Lifestyle questionnaire (LSQ), Keyes’s social health questionnaire, and Paloutzian and Ellison’s spiritual health questionnaire. The data were analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression test, using SPSS 19 software.
