The high school years, a time for sedentariness? : A quantitative study on youths sedentary behaviour (English)
Abstract [sv]

Under det senaste decenniet har media och forskare talat om att ett stillasittande beteende inte är bra för dig, och att du därför måste du träna regelbundet för att hålla upp en god hälsa. Nyligen publicerade rapporter visar nu att ett stillasittande beteende, definierat som muskulär inaktivitet ökar risken för de flesta av dagens folksjukdomar och förtida död. Dessa risker är oberoende av fysisk aktivitet mellan dina stillasittande perioder. Stillasittande tid bör betraktas som en separat hälsorisk och livsstilsvariabel.Vissa är mycket stillasittande på sin fritid och andra har ett mycket stillasittande jobb. Men det finns en grupp människor som inte kan påverka sin egen stillasittande tid under vardagar, nämligen barnen och ungdomarna i skolan. Denna undersökning riktar in sig på hur ungdomarnas dag i skolan kan se ut och se hur mycket tid de tillbringar stillasittande.Syftet med studien var att undersöka stillasittande beteende hos gymnasieungdomar på deras skoltid och på fritiden. Studien görs med en kvantitativ metod med enkäter som involverade 154 gymnasieelever. För att analysera data användes t-tester och Pearsons chi-square test.Resultatet visar att en genomsnittlig gymnasieelev tillbringar 58 % av sin vakna tid varje vecka stillasittande. De flesta av deras stillasittande timmar är under sina dagar i skolan och framför allt under sina lektioner.

Abstract [en]

During the past decade, the media and scholars told that sedentary behavior is not good for you, and you therefore need to exercise regularly to keep up a good health. Recent reports now show that a sedentary behavior, defined as muscular inactivity increases the risk of most of today's common diseases and premature death. These risks are independent of physical activity between your sedentary periods. Sedentary time should be considered a separate health and lifestyle variable.Some are very sedentary in their leisure time and have a very sedentary job. But there is a group of people who can not influence their own sedentary time during weekdays, the children and youth in school. This study focuses on how high school student’s day at school may appear and how much time they spend sedentary.The aim of the study was to examine sedentary behavior among high school students at their school and at their leisure time. The study is done by a quantitative method with surveys involving 154 high school students. To analyze the data t-tests and Pearson's chi-square test are used.The results show that an average high school student spends 58% of their waking hours every week sedentary. Most of their sedentary hours are during their days at school and especially during their lessons.
