COUTO, Diego Antônio Cândido et al. Insufficient level of physical activity is associated with reduced quality of life and night-time studying in Brazilian undergraduate students. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.3, pp.322-330.  Epub 16-Set-2019. ISSN 0101-3289.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rbce.2018.04.017.

Physical activity (PA) practice is an essential issue for health and quality of life (QOL).

Objective:

We analyzed the level of physical activity (LPA) and QOL in association with anthropometric and socioeconomics factors among undergraduate students from the Distrito Federal - Brazil.

Methods:

We randomly evaluated 392 volunteers (43.6% men). We employed the IPAQ + reported siting time (ST), and WHOQOL questionnaires. Logistic regression was used to evaluate LPA predictors. QOL was compared between sex, class period (day vs night), LPA and income.

Results:

Two hundred and one volunteers (51.4%) were insufficiently active (IA) and showed lower QOL than the active (AT) ones on physical (PHD) and psychological (PSD) domains (p< 0.05). Lower LPA was associated with greater ST and with the night shift study. We found a high proportion of IA students that was associated with lower QOL on PHD and PSD, higher ST and nightshift study.
