Healty People 2010...conceptualised physical activity in CHURCHES!

Reference: Anderson, E.S., et al. (2006). Social-cognitive determinants of physical activity: the influence of social support, self-efficacy, outcome expectations, and self-regulation among participants in a church-based health promotion study. Health Psychology, 24(4): 510-20.

Reading this article...leads me thinking of our Thai people being socialised in temples...bringing physical well-being in a spritual location would be a better alternative promotion in our health system...what do you think krab?

This article used a structural equation analysis of data from 999 Americans who were participating in 14 churches. The researchers created a model including age, race, social support, self-efficacy, and self-regulation that contributed to the prediction of the levels of physical activity.

In a simple explaination - physical activity interventions should focus on increasing self-regulation, such as scheduling physical activity into the daily routine in churches.

This research highlights a combination of psychosocial and physical aspects in getting individuals to believe and creat any appropriate religious activity in related to health promotions.

Thank you krab Ajarn Khajit,

Glad to hear that you like it!

I'd like to translate it in Thai, but there is no Thai keyboard here. I also read something else apart from writing up my thesis, and hope to highlight only useful articles to all friendly readers---like you krab....
