Methods: The subjects of this study consisted of 117 high school girls on S girls' high school. The data was analyzed with the SPSS computer program that includes descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis. Results: The mean age of subjects was 18.0 years old. The mean score of resourcefulness was 114.2. The most frequently practiced resourcefulness item was "By changing my way of thinking, I am often able to change my feelings about almost anything". The next most frequently practiced resourcefulness item was "My self-esteem increases when I am able to overcome a bad habit". There was no difference in the degree of resourcefulness with respect to the general characteristics. The mean score of health promoting behavior was 115.2. The group whose concerns over health was shown high health promoting behavior. The health education class group was shown high health promoting behavior. There was statistically significant positive correlation between resourcefulness and health promoting behavior of high school girls.
