Demirel, Havva
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n16 p9422-9425 2016
Multiple studies have now shown that people who maintain appropriate body fitness, using judicious regimens of exercise and weight control, have the additional benefit of prolonged life. In fact, sport or exercise may be also expected to be helpful for psychological health. In the present study, depression, anxiety and psychological stress points in athlete university students in comparison with non-athlete university students were investigated. In the present study, athlete university students had higher depression, anxiety and psychological stress points compared to non-athlete university students. The possible causes the higher depression, anxiety and psychological stress scores in Turkish athlete university students compare to non-athlete university students may be due to the factors such as (1) the fear of occupational forthcoming; (2) ambiguousness in occupational career; and (3) physical or somatic stress associated with training programs of vigorous exercise.
