Aims: Heath promoting lifestyle can improve physical and psychological health in individuals and populations, especially veterans. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the relationship of core self-evaluations with a health-promoting lifestyle by mediating social intimacy and self-control in the veterans in the National Iranian South Oil Company. 
Instruments & Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was carried out on veterans with more than 25% disability, who worked in the National Iranian Oil Companies of Setad, Karoun, Maroun, Gachsaran, and Masjed Soleyman in Ahvaz, Aghajari, and Gachsaran cities in 2021-2022. Out of 382 people, 202 subjects were selected by the census. Data were collected through a core self-evaluation scale, health-promoting lifestyle questionnaires, social intimacy scale, and a self-control questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient, multivariate regression, and structural equation path analysis methods by SPSS 24 and AMOS 18 software.
Findings: The results showed a good fit for the causal model of the study, and in general, all path coefficients related to the proposed model were significant (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Social intimacy and self-control can play a mediating role in the relationship between core self-evaluations with health-promoting lifestyle.
