Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study was to get an increased understanding of health education students general perception and their own experience of long-term sedentary behavior. 

 

Issues: How do health education students think of long-term sedentary behavior in everyday life? Do they think about taking short breaks during long lasting sedentary sessions? For how long do the students estimate they are sedentary?

 

Method

By a qualitative method, six interviews were conducted with students at the health education program at the Swedish school of sport and health sciences, in Stockholm. The interviews were semi-structured, and the interviews were recorded and transcribed. Based on a phenomenological approach, the data was analyzed. 

 

Results

The students’ experience that sedentary behavior occurs in a large extent, people generally sit too much. The students believe that they themselves sit less than the average population. It also emerged that the students had become more aware of their own sedentary behavior, and therefore thinking about breaking their own sedentary behavior. Finally they estimated that they spend 6,5 hours a day sedentary. 

 

Conclusions

The education and knowledge acquired by the students influence their behavior. Increased knowledge can thus be assumed to influence behavior, even though the students in this study did not verbally expresse this. Further research is necessary to determine whether knowledge is sufficient to influence behavior, or if there other methods better suited. 

 

Furthermore the students’ knowledge has generated a picture of sedentary behavior as a problem in the society. They feel that sedentary behavior occurs in a large extent and it needs to be reduced.

Sammanfattning

Syfte och frågeställningar

Syftet med denna studie var att få en ökad förståelse kring hälsopedagogstudenters allmäna uppfattning och egna upplevelse kring långvarigt stillasittande. 

 

Frågeställningar: Hur tänker hälsopedagogstudenterna kring långvarigt stillasittande i vardagen? Tänker de på att bryta sitt egna långvariga stillasittande? Hur mycket sitter de själva? 

 

Metod

Genom kvalitativ utgångspunkt utfördes sex intervjuer med studenter på hälsopedagogprogrammet på Gymnastik- och Idrottshögskolan, i Stockholm. Intervjuguiden var semi-strukturerad, och intervjuerna spelades in samt transkriberades. Med en utgångspunkt ur fenomenografisk ansats analyserades datan. 

 

Resultat

Studenterna upplever att stillasittande sker i hög utsträckning, att människor i allmänhet sitter mycket. Studenterna tror sig själva sitta mindre än genomsnittet. Det framkom även att studenterna blivit mer medvetna om sitt eget stillasittande, och tänkte därmed på att bryta sitt eget stillasittande. Slutligen uppskattades att de spenderar 6,5 timmar per dag stillasittande. 

 

Slutsats

Utbildningen och den kunskap studenterna införskaffat påverkar deras beteende. Ökad kunskap kan därmed antas påverka beteendet, även fast studenterna i denna studie inte ordagrant konstaterat detta. Vidare forskning är nödvändigt för att konstatera om kunskap är tillräckligt för att påverka beteenden, eller om det finns bättre lämpade metoder. 

 

Vidare har studenternas kunskap genererat en bild av stillasittande som ett problem i samhället. De upplever att det sker i stor utsträckning och att detta behöver minska.
