The relationship between various leisure lifestyles (LLS) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) was analyzed. The 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36; Ware, Kosinski, & Keller, 1994) was completed by 622 residents of Taiwan. Factor analysis resulted in 6 dimensions of leisure
lifestyle: preferred travel, self-realization, morning action, exercise loving, homebody, and social support. The scores for self-realization were the highest and the scores for morning action the lowest. Cluster analysis was applied to categorize the respondents into 4 leisure lifestyle groups:
morning exercisers, traveling and social people, static recreation people, and active exercisers. In general, those groups of people for whom their LLS included more exercise had a better HRQoL.
