The aim of this study was to identify the components of a healthy lifestyle with emphasis on adolescence.

Materials and Methods: This research was conducted with a qualitative approach and content analysis method. The study population consisted of valid scientific documents related to healthy lifestyle that 47 articles (35 Persian articles and 12 Latin articles) related to the year 2000 were selected as the sample using purposive sampling method. To conduct research through the study of scientific articles related to healthy lifestyle, first the basic concepts were extracted and assigned to subcategories and subcategories to the main categories. The research tool included note-taking slips. Data analysis method was performed based on contractual (inductive) qualitative content analysis and in three stages, basic concepts, subcategories and main categories were extracted manually.

 Results: The results showed that healthy lifestyle categories include four main categories and 12 sub-categories including physical health (mobility, nutrition, proper sleep pattern, reduction of high-risk behaviors, health responsibility, accident prevention and Self-care). Mental health (stress management, self-fulfillment, positive thinking and mindfulness), social health (interpersonal relationships) and spiritual health (spiritual growth). The number of initial concepts was 62.
