Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Depression är ett tillstånd som påverkar en persons tankar, känsloliv och den allmänna hälsan negativt. Forskning tyder på att hälsovinsterna av fysisk aktivitet är stora vid depression och depressiva symtom.

 

Syfte: Sammanställa aktuella forskningsresultat om personers upplevelser av fysisk aktivitet i samband med diagnostiserad depression eller depressiva symtom.

 

Metod: Litteraturöversikt av redan publicerade artiklar inom det aktuella området. Fjorton artiklar lästes noggrant varav tio stycken valdes ut till kvalitetsgranskning som sedan inkluderades. Av de tio artiklarna bedömdes det att sju stycken hade hög- och tre stycken medelhög kvalitet.

 

Resultat: Fysisk aktivitet upplevdes som positivt och att det kan vara en hjälp i att bearbeta och hantera depressionen och depressiva symtom. Humöret förbättrades av träningen, oro minskade och personerna kände sig mer stabila och harmoniska både i anknytning till träningen och generellt.

 

Slutsats:  Fysisk aktivitet har en positiv effekt på välbefinnande för personer med depression och depressiva symtom. Denna litteraturöversikts resultat kan bidra med förståelse för hur personer upplever fysisk aktivitet vid depression och depressiva symtom. Den kan också ge sjuksköterskan verktyg i att bättre kunna bemöta dessa personer och motivera ytterligare till fysisk aktivitet samt hjälpa till att överkomma hinder och barriärer emot fysisk aktivitet.
