Positive Effects of Physical Activity on Health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inledning

Hjärnan är det organ som påverkas mest av regelbunden träning. Genom att röra på sig ofta påverkar bland annat koncentrationen, minnet, sömnen och kreativiteten. Att ha en passiv livsstil ökar risken att utveckla många av våra vanliga folksjukdomar som fetma, diabetes, benskörhet och hjärt-och kärlsjukdomar.

Metod

Examensarbetet är baserat på en översiktlig litteraturstudie där tio vetenskapliga artiklar har lästs, granskats och analyserats. Resultatet är byggt på vetenskapliga artiklar som var peer-reviewed.

Resultat

Samtliga artiklar bekräftar hypotes om ett samband mellan fysisk aktivitet och positiva effekter. Ett stort antal artiklar vittnar även om ett behov av ytterligare forskning på ämnet för att i sinom tid kunna etablera fysisk aktivitet som skyddsfaktor och alternativ behandling av välfärdssjukdomars symtom. Även för fysiskt och psykiskt välmående med förbättrad inlärning i både skola och på fritid.

Diskussion

En genomgång av tio vetenskapliga artiklar påvisar ett starkt samband mellan fysisk aktivitet och positiva effekter. I ett längre perspektiv finns det potential för fysisk aktivitet att fungera som en erkänd behandlingsmetod för att lindra symtom som fetma, depression, psykisk ohälsa och nå ett bättre skolresultat. Nyckelord: cognitive ability, physical activity, exercise, learning, memory, accomplishment, creativity samt fysisk aktivitet, inlärning, minne, prestation, kreativitet och motion.

Abstract [en]

Introduction

The brain is what is most affected by regular exercise in the human body. Exercise often affects the concentration, memory, sleep, and creativity. Having a passive lifestyle increases the risk of developing many of our common diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular diseases.

Method

This thesis is based on an overview of literature, where ten scientific articles have been read, examined, and analysed. The result is based on scientific articles that were peer-reviewed.

Result

All articles confirm the hypothesis of a connection between physical activity and positive effects. A large number of articles also suggest to the need for further research on the subject in order to eventually establish physical activity as a protective factor and alternative treatment for welfare disease symptoms. Also for physical and mental well-being with improved learning abilities in both school and at leisure.

Discussion

A review of ten scientific articles shows a strong connection between physical activity and positive effects. In a longer perspective there is potential for physical activity to become a recognized treatment method to alleviate symptoms such as obesity, depression, mental health, and to achieve a better average result in school.
