Brief Summary:
Physical activity is closely associated with well-being condition and health development. The sleep quality and fatigue levels of individuals are also important components of health. Within the scope of our study, it is aimed to investigate the physical activity levels, sleep quality and fatigue levels of the academicians, who are generally working on a desk and we think that they live a sedentary life. Within the scope of this study, academicians were asked to respond to , International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form (IPAQ-Short Form), general evaluation form, Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) .

Detailed Description:

The aim of this study is to investigate that the effect of physical activity level on sleep quality and fatigue in academicians.

First of all, a form including the purpose of the study, demographic information, daily working hours and assignment durations, was arranged; then obtaining general information about academicians who participated in the study and the physical activity levels of the individuals with International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form (IPAQ-Short Form); sleep quality with the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI); fatigue levels with Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) were planned to be measured. On-line communication was preferred as a data collection tool for all these assessments. In order to prevent bias in the results of the study, it was planned to transmit the questionnaire on-line to the academicians working in any program of any higher education institution. In this way, the voluntary involvement of the participant or any other threat to abuse was prevented. In other words, it was planned to ensure that individuals answer or don't respond the form on a purely voluntary basis.

Other: International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form
IPAQ has been developed to obtain valid and comparable information about the level of physical activity based on individual reports on daily physical activity in the international arena. This form consists of 7 questions; provides information about time spent in walking, moderate and violent activities, and time spent sitting. The calculation of the total score of the short form includes total of duration and frequency whom walking, moderate activity and severe activity. The energy required for the activities is calculated by the MET-minute score.Standard MET values for these activities has been established. These; Walking = 3.3 MET;Moderate Severe Physical Activity = 4.0 MET;Severe Physical Activity = 8.0 MET;Seating = 1.5 MET.Classification is based on the numerical data obtained.Accordingly,there are 3 activity levels: Inactive,minimal active and very active.
Other Name: IPAQ-SF

Other: The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index
It is a scale that provides information about the sleep quality of the individuals and the type and severity of the sleep disorder in the last month. It consists of 24 questions, 19 of which are evaluated. The PSQI consists of 1 total score and 7 sub-dimensions (subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration, usual sleep efficiency, sleep disturbance, sleep medication use, daytime dysfunction). Each item in the scale has a value between 0 (no distress) and 3 (serious distress). The sum of the scores related to the seven sub-dimensions gives the total PSQI score. The score of each sub-dimension ranges from 0 to 3. The total PSQI score ranged from 0 to 21. While the sleep quality of the patients with a total score of 5 and below is considered as 'good'; >5 refers to poor sleep quality.
Other Name: PSQI

Other: The Fatigue Severity Scale
Each question on this scale, which is composed of Likert type questions: 1.I strongly disagree 2.I do not agree 3.No tend to disagree 4. Indefinitely. The score of the scale, which consists of 9 questions, varies between 9-63. People are asked to mark the appropriate options for each question taking into account their status in the last 1 month period.
Other Name: FSS

Other: General Information Form
A form, which is prepared by us, including the purpose of the study, demographic information, daily working hours and assignment durations.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The level of physical activity [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form (IPAQ-SF) consists of 7 questions;provides information about the level of physical activity in the last 7days.The calculation of the total score of the form includes total of duration and frequency whom walking,moderate activity and severe activity.The MET-minute scores;Walking 3.3MET,Moderate Severe Physical Activity 4MET,Severe Physical Activity 8MET,Seating 1.5MET.Classification is based on the numerical data obtained.Accordingly,there are 3 activity levels: Inactive,minimal active and very active.The lowest level of physical activity is inactive and the highest level of physical activity is very active.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sleep Quality [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) is a scale that provides information about the sleep quality of the individuals and the type and severity of the sleep disorder in the last month. It consists of 24 questions, 19 of which are evaluated. The PSQI consists of 1 total score and 7 sub-dimensions (subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration, usual sleep efficiency, sleep disturbance, sleep medication use, daytime dysfunction). Each item in the scale has a value between 0 (no distress) and 3 (serious distress). The sum of the scores related to the seven sub-dimensions gives the total PSQI score. The score of each subdimension ranges from 0 to 3. The total PSQI score ranged from 0 to 21. While the sleep quality of the patients with a total score of 5 and below is considered as 'good'; >5 refers to poor sleep quality.

  2. Fatigue Level [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) is one of the most commonly used self-report questionnaires to measure fatigue. Each question on this scale, which is composed of Likert type questions: 1.I strongly disagree 2.I do not agree 3.No tend to disagree 4. Indefinitely. The total score of the scale, which consists of 9 questions, varies between 9-63. People are asked to mark the appropriate options for each question taking into account their status in the last 1 month period. A total of 36 points and above indicate fatigue.
