This study investigated the health-life-style (eating habits, exercise and leisure, alcohol-tobacco behavior, and stress management) of junior high school students for one school at Taichung county. The relations between health-life-style and social-demographic variables were also examined for the reference of designing teaching plan and improving students’ health. Questionnaires were distributed to the students of Feng Tung Junior High School in the second semester of the academic year in 2007. After random sampling, there were 501 effective questionnaires out of 546 questionnaires. In the scales of eating habit, students performed better in daily food and root-tuber crops, high-protein diet, and daily breakfast. What needs to be improved was drinking beverage containing sugar. As for the exercise and leisure aspect, they performed better in exercise safety, and undesirably in the need of relaxing exercise after severe workout and the cultivation of regular habit for exercising. The participants’ major leisure activities were mainly “leisure enjoyment” including watching movies, TV, listening to music, and using computer… Following the “leisure enjoyment” was “exercise-fitness”. Of the students’ leisure activities, the ratios of “observational activity” and “static recreation activity” were higher than previous studies. But the ratio was lower for “exercise-fitness”. Comparing to other studies, the ratio of alcohol-tobacco behavior had decreased. However, the time of their first contact of alcohol-tobacco for the students became earlier. The main sources were primarily from family and friends. The main reason for using Tobacco mostly was out of curiosity. In the stress management aspect, the ratio was under 10% for using drugs or alcohol to relief oneself and self-mutilation to release one’s emotion. Of the participants, 23% had the thought of committing suicide in the past year. And, 4.4% of them had actually committed suicide. 47.7% of them would seek for help when encounter emotional disturbance. The priority for seeking help was mainly schoolmates and then friends. They seldom ask for the assistance of experts or counselors. The relation between health-life-style social-demographic variables indicated the parenting style is more democratic, the family atmosphere is better, and relationship of mother and father is better as the grade of the students gets lower. Academic performance and health-life-style are higher when social-economic status gets higher. That is to say the realization of health education is beneficial in establishing a healthy life style of the students. Finally, It was also indicated that statistically “grade”, “family atmosphere”, “academic performance”, and the “status of health education” can effectively predict the health-life-style of the participants.
