Physical activity, self-esteem and self-control in patients diagnosed with depression (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Depression är en allvarlig sjukdom och en ledande orsak till funktionsnedsättning världen över. Det finns forskning som visar på positiva effekter av fysisk aktivitet vid depression. FaR “fysisk aktivitet på recept” innebär en skriftlig ordination på fysisk aktivitet som används inom vården vid bland annat depression. Självkänsla är en positiv eller negativ hållning en individ har gentemot sig själv och som påverkas vid depression. Depression kan också påverka egenkontrollen hos individer. Det saknas kunskaper om vilka faktorer som påverkar den fysiska aktivitetsnivån hos personer med depression. Självkänsla och egenkontroll skulle kunna vara betydelsefulla aspekter i detta sammanhang. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka uppfattad fysisk aktivitetsnivå, självkänsla och egenkontroll hos patienter med diagnosen depression. Metod: 27 patienter deltog i denna kvantitativa tvärsnittsstudie i form av en enkätundersökning. Data analyserades med deskriptiv- och icke-parametrisk statistik. Resultat: Deltagarna hade i genomsnitt en fysisk aktivitetsnivå på 205 aktivitetsminuter per vecka. Det fanns ingen signifikant skillnad i aktivitetsnivå hos de som erhållit FaR gentemot de som ej erhållit FaR. Det fanns ej heller någon signifikant skillnad i fysisk aktivitetsnivå mellan de som erhållit information om fysisk aktivitet jämfört med de som ej erhållit information. Det fanns ett svagt icke-signifikant positivt samband mellan uppfattad fysisk aktivitetsnivå och självkänsla (r= .04, p= .85), och ett svagt icke-signifikant positivt samband mellan uppfattad fysisk aktivitetsnivå och egenkontroll (r= .08, p= .70). Konklusion: Studiens resultat visade övergripande att majoriteten av patienternas aktivitetsnivå uppnådde rekommenderade nivåer. Både uppfattad självkänsla och egenkontroll resulterade i att vara något lägre än rekommenderat.

Abstract [en]

Background: Depression is a serious illness and a leading cause of disability globally. Research shows positive effects of physical activity in relation to depression. FaR"physical activity on prescription" is a written prescription for physical activity and is an action that the health care system can use for patients suffering from depression. Self-esteem is the feeling an individual has about his/her own worth and abilities, it can be either positive or negative, and is affected when suffering from depression. Depression can also affect a person’s self-control. There is a lack of knowledge regarding what factors that may influence physical activity in person with depression. Self-esteem and self-control could be important aspects in this. Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate perceptions of physical activity, self-esteem and self-control in individuals suffering from depression. Method: 27 patients participated in this quantitative cross-sectional study composed of self-rated questionnaires. Descriptive and non-parametric statics were used to analayze data. Results: The average levels of physical activity were 205 minutes of activity per week. There was no significant differences in physical activity in participants who had been prescribed FaR compared to those who had not been prescribed FaR. There was no significant differences in physical activity between those who had received information regarding physical activity and those who had not. There was a weak non-significant positive correlation between self-rated physical activity and self-esteem (r = .04, p = .85), and a weak nonsignificant positive correlation between self-rated physical activity and self-control (r =.08, p = .70). Conclusion: The results show that the majority of the patients physical activity reached recommended levels. The participants had, in average, low values of self-rated self-esteem and self-control.
