Physical activity in depression and depressive symptoms : Young and young adults experiences and attitudes (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Det sker en ständig ökning av depression, framförallt hos barn och unga vuxna. Tidigare forskning visar att regelbunden fysisk aktivitet har samma behandlande effekt som antidepressiva läkemedel. Depression innebär ett ökat lidande och kan leda till ett försämrat välbefinnande för den drabbade. Fysisk aktivitet kan förebygga, behandla och undvika fall av depression. Syfte: Unga och unga vuxnas upplevelser och attityder av fysisk aktivitet vid depression och depressionssymtom Metod: Studien är skriven som en allmän litteraturöversikt som har inkluderat både kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar mellan åren 2006–2021. Tio artiklar som studerat ungas (13–28 år) attityder och upplevelser av fysisk aktivitet vid depression har granskats. Resultat: Resultatet visade flertalet positiva upplevelser vid fysisk aktivitet, däribland en minskning av depressionssymtom, ökad motivation, förbättrad självkänsla samt självförmåga. Det framkom även upplevda hinder som skapade svårigheter till fysisk aktivitet. För att implementera fysisk aktivitet som en del i behandlingen är stöd från närstående och sjukvården avgörande. Ungas attityder påverkar acceptansen till fysisk aktivitet som en del i behandlingen. Konklusion: Att implementera fysisk aktivitet som en del i behandlingen upplevdes mestadels som positivt.

Abstract [en]

Background: There is a constant increase in depression cases, especially in children and young adults. Previous research shows that regular physical activity has the sametherapeutic effect as antidepressant drugs. Depression means increased suffering and can lead to a deterioration in the well-being of the sufferer. Research shows that physical activity can prevent, treat and avoid cases of depression Aim: Young and young adults' experiences and attitudes of physical activity in depression and depressive symptoms. Method: The study is written as a general literature review that contains both qualitative and quantitative articles between the years 2006-2021. The authors have reviewed ten articles that study young adults (13–28 years) attitudes and experiences of physical activity in depression. Findings: The results showed several positive experiences during physical activity, including a reduction in depressive symptoms, increased motivation, improved self-esteem and self-efficacy. There were also perceived obstacles that created difficulties in being physically active. In order to implement physical activity as part of the treatment, support from relatives and healthcare is crucial. Adolescents' attitudes affect the acceptance of physical activity as part of treatment. Conclusion: Implementing physical activity as part of the treatment was mostly perceived as positive.
