Health promotion and health-promoting activities have become an important area for nursing considerations, especially in populations of different cultural backgrounds. The purpose of this descriptive correlation study was to identify health-promoting lifestyle behaviors and their relationship to the variables of age, gender, marital status, and education. The Health Promotion Model provided a framework to explain why individuals participate in health activities. The sample of 65 Amish men and women completed a demographic questionnaire and the 48-item Health Promoting Lifestyle Profile (HPLP). The four most frequent health-promoting behaviors were nutrition, interpersonal support, self-actualization, and stress management. This Amish sample was health conscious with a mean total HPLP score at the 75th percentile. Significant positive relationships were found between gender and age, and one or more of the six HPLP subscales. The variable education was not significantly related to any HPLP subscale.
