Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine the participation levels of individuals in physical activities and the effects of activities on quality of life, and to evaluate the role of physical activity on quality of life.The research is a quantitative study and is based on the descriptive survey model. The population of the study consisted of 562 adult volunteers, 254 males and 308 females. Personal data on gender, occupa-tional status, chronic disease, medication use, smoking, alcohol use, region of residence, and number of days of physical activity were collected from the individuals. In addition, the quality of life scale short form (WHOQOL-BREF) developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) was used in the study. While analyzing the data of the study, the t-test was used for pairwise comparisons, and the Anova Tukey test was used for multiple comparisons within groups. When the data obtained from the study were examined, it was found that men were better than women in the general health status sub-dimension, married individuals were better than singles in the psychological, social communication, and environment sub-dimensions, individuals who did not have chronic diseases, did not use medication, did not use alcohol, and did not smoke were found to have high scores in the sub-dimensions of the scale in their favor, and those with a high number of weekly physical activity days had higher quality of life scale scores than those with a low number of physical activity days. As a result, in this study, it was seen that many variables affect quality of life. In order to develop positive attitudes and behaviors according to these variables, it was concluded that it is very valuable to adopt awareness of a healthy long life in prosperity and peace and to convey the importance of maintaining a balanced quality of life in order to create a healthy society and a healthy future.
