The statistical population of this study included all the male elderly over-60 years old of Ardabil in 2016, which 110 persons of them were selected as the statistical sample using the convenience sampling. For data collection, the metacognitive belief scale (2004), cognitive avoidance scale (2008) and general health scale (1997) were used. Research data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression methods by employing SPSS Software, version 23.

Findings: The study results showed a significant relationship between metacognitive belief and cognitive avoidance with general health.
