The physical and mental effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been examined by many researchers, but our study aims to evaluate in every aspect how university students who had to receive education with the distance education model due to the pandemic went through this process. Data regarding people's positive and negative habits from anthropometric characteristics and sleep quality, which is one of the sub-dimensions of healthy lifestyle behaviors, were evaluated, and the relationship between these parameters was examined in detail.
The goal of this clinicaltrial is to assess and compare isokinetic performance, surface electromyography, laboratory parameters, and cardiorespiratory function both before and after engaging in vigorous intermittent lifestyle physical activity(VILPA) within a healthy population. The main question it aims to answer is:  Does VILPA yield effective outcomes? Throughout the course of the trial, participants will engage in a simulated regimen of vigorous intermittent lifestyle physical activity for a duration of 8 weeks. The efficacy of the exercise protocol will be quantified and evaluated through the utilization of a wearable device.
Food literacy (FL) is the capability to make healthy food choices in different contexts, settings and situations. Although eating habits are shaped by different circumstances and skills, most nutrition programs focus on nutrition knowledge alone. Addressing factors such as competencies, self-efficacy and social norms enables sustainable positive change in nutrition behaviour. This study will assess a lay leader-led FL workshop to Arab and Jewish women from disadvantaged communities in the Jerusalem region, utilizing a train-the-trainer approach, and will compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a lay-led FL intervention to an expert-led intervention.
A nurse-led physical activity program including an individualized exercise program using wearable technology and health coaching based on Social Cognitive Theory will be implemented for women surviving cancer. The impact of the nurse-led physical activity program on physical activity level, health-related quality of life and cognitive factors (self regulation, outcome expectation, self efficacy, perceived social support, perceived environment) will be evaluated in the study.
The primary research objective is to examine how uncertainty towards a new medical treatment changes in patients when a partner (can be any close other, i.e. romantic partner, family member, or a close friend) supports the new treatment choice and is willing to be involved in the patient's treatment. I hypothesize that when the patients know that their partner supports uptake of the new medical treatment and will physically accompany them to the visit, patients will (1) experience lower levels of uncertainty and (2) report a higher likelihood of participating in a new treatment in the future, as compared to patients who face the decision about the new treatment alone.
In addition to being an easily accessible and ready-made food for babies in the first years of life, breast milk plays a major role in transmitting information about the time of day to newborn babies and therefore in the formation of the circadian rhythm, thanks to the hormones and various immune elements it contains.The main theme of mindfulness-based programs is mind and body meditation by focusing on the present moment, directing perception to inner experiences and observing these experiences.Regular practice of this type of meditation contributes greatly to increasing happiness and developing positive attitudes such as insight, compassion, awareness and stress management.Cortisol is the main stress hormone in the human body and is therefore a promising benchmark for investigating the effects of mindfulness programs. The purpose of mindfulness-based breastfeeding training to be given to mothers; It is to contribute to a healthy and safe postpartum period and breastfeeding experience for the mother and the newborn by minimizing the negative effects of the postpartum stress level in the mother and the cortisol hormone levels transferred from the mother's milk to the baby on the circadian rhythm.For this purpose, the sample size was planned to be a total of 54 people, 27 people per group, in the experimental design, with G power 3.1 analysis. The research will be conducted on healthy breastfeeding mothers who applied to Erzurum City Hospital and Kars Selim District State Hospital between 15.05.2023 and 15.06.2024.Subjects to be included in the study will be randomly selected among the pregnant women who applied to the clinic according to meeting the inclusion criteria. Breastfeeding: 'The Key to Sustainable Development'. For this reason, it is planned that the determination of the relationship between breast milk and circadian rhythm can be supported by cognitive methods, it will be important in terms of promoting breastfeeding and achieving development goals in a short time, and it is planned to contribute to the literature.
The goal of this randomized clinical trial aims to pilot test the effectiveness' of three health promotion interventions for the achievement of optimal functional health in women.. The study interventions include: a Cognitive Power Intervention; a Guided Imagery Intervention and a third intervention that combines the two interventions. The interventions are compared to each other and to a control group in women to improve functional health health status.
The primary objective of the proposed study is to complete a comprehensive needs assessment of the Louisiana National Guard (LANG) Youth Challenge Program (YCP) in the YCP leadership and junior cadet population related to nutrition, fitness, sleep, and mental health and resilience. Results of this needs assessment will further inform the development of the intervention skills training program. The secondary objective of this work is to provide a scalable, integrated physical and mental optimization training program that would be integrated into relevant systems and maintained over time as a core tool for young individuals readying themselves to join the Army. The program would include an environmental intervention approach as well as nutrition, physical activity, sleep, and stress reduction/positive coping guidance.
The overall objectives of this study are to better define the construct of psychological resilience in the military, to identify potential modifiable risk factors and trainable skills of psychological resilience in Soldiers, and provide a scalable, integrated physical and mental optimization training app to be integrated into relevant systems. The proposed work would be a first step in identifying predictive risk factors that can be modified to increase the future resilience of Soldiers. With this crucial information, the investigators aim to gather data that will inform the development of a resilience-focused intervention (e.g., a skills training program) and test the feasibility of that intervention.
The goal of this clinical trial is to test and compare the effects of a tailored algorithm recommendation of sport activities concreted in challenges to improve some critical performance dimensions. Q1: Improving participant performance is achieved by using personalized sports activity recommendation using an algorithm and tracking compliance using a decentralized application (dApp)? Q2: Are participants satisfied with the performance and simplicity of the dApp used? Participants will be asked to do specific activities recommended by the developed recommender system. The activities to be carried out will be conditioned by the profile obtained from each participant at the beginning of the intervention. They will consist of reinforcement activities for the dimensions with the lowest scores. Researchers will compare a experimental group and a control group to see if the dimensions assessed at the beginning of the intervention were improved.
