This study was accomplished in a sample of 300 individuals from the whole population of homemaker women in Isfahan, with the aim of examining the relationship between Islamic life style and three other variables: 1) levels of depression, 2) life satisfaction, and 3) happiness. For gathering data, four instruments were used: 1) Kaviani Islamic Life Style Questionnaire, 2) Beck Depression Inventory, 3) Diener's Life Satisfaction Scale, and 4) Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. The findings of the study indicate significant relations: the Islamic life style is negatively related to the levels of depression (r = -.43), and positively related to life satisfaction (r = .26) and happiness (r = .43). These relations are significant with an alpha level of .01. Interestingly, the life style's relations to both depression and happiness are equal, but in opposite directions.
So, our findings support our hypothesis that "commitment to the Islamic life style decreases the levels of depression and increases both happiness and life satisfaction." The findings of this study are in line with, and support the idea of psychologists and behavioral scientists that hold that people's life style influences their physical and psychological health and that the more committed to their religious teachings, the more calm and satisfaction people experience.
Based on the findings of this study, can be said that people who adopt an Islamic life style, suffer less depressive symptoms and feel more happiness and higher levels of life satisfaction.
Keywords: Keyword: Islamic life style, depression, satisfaction, happiness.
