Introduction
In light of available knowledge about health determinants, it is known that a person’s lifestyle associated with health significantly affects their condition and thus is the main determinant of human health that can be actively controlled. Health self-assessment and quality of life are closely linked with lifestyle.

Aim of the study
The aim of the study was to assess health-related lifestyle behaviours and their influence on health self-assessment among women over 45 years old living in Krakow.

Material and methods
The study was based on the diagnostic survey method with the Healthy Lifestyle Scale made by Corbin et al. as a research tool. To investigate participants’ health self-assessment the Polish adaptation of the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) made by Hunt, McEwan, and McKenna was used.

Results
Healthy lifestyle was associated with higher energy level in comparison to lifestyle classified as unhealthy (p = 0.0095), better pain control (p = 0.0220), better control of emotional reactions (p = 0.0011), and less social isolation (p = 0.0298).
