Abstract [en]

This chapter comprises a review of physical activity and sedentary time among persons with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and/or obesity. Different correlates of these behaviors are described and a discussion is offered regarding behavior change techniques for enhanced physical activity. Through increased energy expenditure, physical activity has a vital role in weight reduction. Additionally, regardless of weight change, physical activity reduces the risk of life-threatening diseases and there are promising results pointing to positive effects of physical activity on OSAS severity. Thus, physical activity and sedentary time are highly relevant to be addressed in the treatment of OSAS and obesity. Attending to an individual's prerequisites and strengthening self-efficacy, self-management, and self-regulation might encourage a behavior change in physical activity and sedentary time.
