Physical activity and motivation : in studies and work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har undersökt fysisk aktivitet och sambandet med motivation enligt Self-determination Theory (SDT). Fysisk aktivitet baserades på Socialstyrelsen och Gymnastik & Idrottshögskolans frågor om träning, vardagsmotion och stillasittande. Self-determination Theory som först utvecklades av Ryan och Deci (1985), definieras med motivationstyperna yttre, introjektiv, identifierad, inre och existentialistisk motivation i studien.  I den första studien svarade deltagarna på frågor om sin fysiska aktivitet under en vecka. Därefter följde frågan ”Varför studerar du?” och påståenden utifrån SDT motivationstyper. Studie II har exakt samma konstruktion förutom att den andra frågan var ”Varför arbetar du?”. Existentialistisk motivation är nyutvecklad och erhöll empiriskt underlag för att vara berättigad som motivationstyp inom SDT. Både studie I och studie II gav ett signifikant negativt samband mellan rörelse och yttre motivation. Ingen av studierna gav samband mellan fysisk aktivitet och motivation i studier och arbete.

Abstract [en]

This study examined physical activity and the relationship with motivation according to self-determination theory (SDT). Physical activity was based on Socialstyrelsen and Gymnastik & Idrottshögskolans questions about exercise, both everyday and sedentary. SDT, first developed by Ryan och Deci (1985), is defined by various types of motivation.These are external, introjected, identified, intrinsic and existential motivation. In the first study, the participants answered questions about their physical activity during a week. This was followed by the question "Why are you studying?" and a number of statements based on SDT motivation types. The second study had exactly the same construction other than the second question which was "Why do you work?". Existential motivation is a newly developed concept and has received empirical evidence, justifying its inclusion as a type of motivation within SDT. Both the first and second study show a significant negative correlation between movement and external motivation. None of the studies show a correlation between physical activity and motivation in studies and work.
