Abstract
This study discusses the question of the impact of physical activity on stress and anxiety, in terms of which type of sport is performed. With the bases of previous research which states that social cohesion, mindfulness, and physical activity are important factors for reducing stress and anxiety, a hypothesis was invented, stating that different types of activities affect the individual’s well-being, in relation to the level of performed physical activity. The population of this study was not clinical, which was in line with the purpose of this study. The data was acquired through a survey conducted on social media, and was analyzed using multivariate analyzes of variance in SPSS. The results showed that no significant differences were... (More)

The results showed that no significant differences were found among the different types of activities performed. This was assumed to be partly due to vague effects of the independent variables, and partly to flaws in the conduct of this study. Further research would be necessary to fully exclude other unverified variables in this study, such as level of mindfulness and traits of character. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Den här uppsatsen syftar att behandla om effekten fysisk aktivitet har på stress och ångest påverkas av vilken typ av idrott som utförs. Med utgångspunkt i tidigare studier som konstaterat vikten av social samhörighet, mindfulness och träning för reducerad nivå av stress och ångest, hypotiseras här att typen av aktivitet spelar roll för hur pass bra individer mår i relation till grad av fysisk aktivitet som utförs. Deltagarna i studien var inte diagnostiserade med någon form av ångestproblematik, vilket inte heller var målet. Data samlades in med internetenkäter och analyserades i en MANOVA med hjälp av SPSS. Resultatet visade att ingen signifikant skillnad mellan de olika träningstyperna fanns. Detta antas bero dels på svaga effekter och... (More)

Resultatet visade att ingen signifikant skillnad mellan de olika träningstyperna fanns. Detta antas bero dels på svaga effekter och dels på brister i studien. Mer forskning hade varit optimalt för att kunna utesluta andra variabler som inte kontrollerades för i den här studien, som nivå av mindfulness och personlighetsdrag. (Less)
