Mental goal imagery training intervention as a health promotion initiative : Qualitative method with open letters (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Mental målbildsträning har genom tidigare forskning visat sig vara en effektiv metod för ökad prestation inom idrott. Samtidigt är mentala förmågor viktiga i hälsofrämjande arbete på individ, grupp och samhällsnivå. Studier inom ämnet visar bland annat på ökad grit och self-efficacy samt att upplevelser av mental träning har en koppling till hälsofrämjande mål hos allmänheten.Syfte: Syftet med studien var att utifrån ett hälsofrämjande perspektiv undersöka deltagarnas upplevelser av sju dagars målbildsträning.Metod: Interventionsstudien var av kvalitativ metod med öppna brev via online-formulär. 20 deltagare, män och kvinnor mellan 23-62 år lyssnade på vägledd målbildsträning sju minuter om dagen i sju dagar. Sammanställning av resultat gjordes i en latent analys.Resultat: Resultatet presenteras utifrån ett huvudtema “Målbildsträning har gett ett större fokus och känsla av drivkraft mot målbilden” samt tre underteman “Uppskattning och ett lugn”, “En vilja att fortsätta mot målet” och “Högre tro på egna förmågan”. Målbildsträning ökar den mentala inställningen att tro på den egna förmågan, uppnå en trygghet i sin drivkraft samt en avkopplande attityd till att vara i nuet för att få insikt i agerandet som krävs för att uppnå sin hälsofrämjande målbild.Slutsats: Interventionsmetoden visade sig upplevas som en ny och motiverande form av mental träning. Deltagarna beskriver en ihärdighet och kämparanda, en högre tro till sin egen förmåga samt en kontroll över sin hälsa. Detta visar att målbildsträning med fördel kan användas i hälsofrämjande arbete även efter bara en veckas träning.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Mental goal imagery training has through previous research proved to be an effective method for increased performance in sports. At the same time, mental abilities are important in health-promoting work at individual, group and community level. Studies in the subject show among other things increased grit and self-efficacy and that experiences of mental training are linked to public health goals that promote health.Purpose: The aim of the study was to, from a health promotive perspective, examine the participants experience of seven-day mental goal imagery training.Method: The intervention study was of a qualitative method with open letters through online forms. 20 participants, men and women aged 23-62 listened to guided mental goal imagery training seven minutes a day for seven days. Summary of results was done in a latent analysis.Result: The result is presented by a main theme "Mental goal imagery training has given a greater focus and sense of driving force towards the mental goal image" as well as three sub-themes "Estimation and a calm", "A will to pursue the goal" and "Higher belief in one's own ability". Mental goal imagery training increases the mental attitude of believing in its own ability, achieving a sense of safety in its will to achieve, and a relaxing attitude to being in the moment to gain insight into the action required to achieve its health promotion goal. Conclusion: The intervention was perceived as a method proved to be a new and motivating form of mental training. The participants describe a sustainability and driving force, a higher belief in their own ability and control over their health. This shows that mental goal imagery training can with advantage be used in the work of health promotion, even after only one week of training.
