Background Anxiety sensitivity is the fear of anxiety and anxiety-related symptoms that may not only affect lifestyle but also result in physical and psychological damages.
Objective The present study aimed to predict anxiety sensitivity based on the components of lifestyle in the students of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences.
Methods This study used a descriptive correlational design. The study population consisted of all students (2260 numbers) of undergraduate, postgraduate, and medical students of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences in the second half of the academic year 2016-2017. According to the Morgan Table, 350 samples were selected by simple random sampling method. The study data were collected by questionnaires of anxiety sensitivity and lifestyle and were analyzed by the Pearson coefficient and multiple regression. 
Findings In this study, 233 students were female, and 117 were male. Based on the results, there was a significant relationship between the components of lifestyle (belonging-social interest, coping, responsibility, need to approval, cautiousness, supportive) and anxiety sensitivity (P<0.01). Also, lifestyle predicts anxiety sensitivity. The results of multiple regression showed that lifestyle and its components (belonging-social interest, coping, responsibility, need for confirmation, cautiousness, and supportive) positively predict anxiety sensitivity.
Conclusion According to the study results, the anxiety sensitivity is partially predictable based on the components of lifestyle. Therefore, to prevent and decrease the level of anxiety sensitivity in students, we suggested to promote and optimize the components of their lifestyle.
