This study aimed to (a) identify the differences in the preferred, practiced, and organized physical activity (PA) between high and low physically active Czech and Polish boys and girls and to (b) identify which types of PA are likely to be recommended by low active boys and girls. The research was carried out between 2010 and 2019 in the Czech Republic and Poland and included 6619 participants aged 15 to 19 years. The preferences and practices of the different types of PA and participation in organized PA were identified using a PA preference questionnaire and weekly PA was identified using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire-long form. Czech and Polish boys and girls who were low active preferred less physically demanding and more health-oriented PA compared with high active individuals. Power exercises and participation in organized PA are the most significant predictors of achieving at least 3 × 20 min of vigorous PA per week among low active individuals in both countries. Monitoring the trends in the preferred and practiced types of PA among boys and girls is crucial for the effective promotion of PA to low active boys and girls and positive changes in physical education and school health policy.

We aimed to analyze personality-related determinants of physical activity among Polish and Spanish physical education (PE) students. The study was conducted among 219 Polish and 280 Spanish PE students, using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) and the NEO-FFI Personality Inventory. Compared with Spanish PE students, their Polish counterparts are characterized by a higher level of extraversion and conscientiousness and a lower level of neuroticism. The level of total physical activity for all students was 8,697.21 METs, and this value was higher among Polish students. Among Polish and Spanish PE students, the level of total, vigorous, and moderate physical activity increased along with the increase in extraversion, while a decrease occurred along with the increase in neuroticism. The level of each domain of physical activity also increased in line with the intensification of student conscientiousness. In moderation analyses, it was shown that the home country of students may be considered a moderator of the relationship between conscientiousness and total exercise in such a way that the physical activity increased along with the increase in conscientiousness only among the Polish students. In addition, the country is a moderator of the correlation between moderate physical activity and neuroticism (p = 0.031), openness (p = 0.049), and conscientiousness (p = 0.019), with moderate activity only decreasing among Polish students and increasing along with the increase in openness and conscientiousness. Positive correlations among physical activity, extraversion, and conscientiousness, as well as negative ones with neuroticism, were demonstrated among Polish and Spanish students, and also the moderating impact of the country on the correlation between personality-related dimensions and physical activity.

Introduction: Adolescence is considered a fundamental time to promote change. During this time, young people consolidate their social and individual identity. By influencing positive changes, chronic diseases can be avoided, delayed or modified in the future. The use of valid and reliable questionnaires is an optimal resource for gathering information and thus useful for this study. Objectives: The objectives of the study were to: (1). identify the questionnaires that assess self-esteem/self-concept, self-perception, physical exercise and lifestyle of adolescents; (2). analyse the psychometric measures of the questionnaires used to assess the self-esteem/self-concept, self-perception, physical exercise and lifestyle of adolescents; and (3). determine which questionnaires are the most reliable and valid for assessing the self-esteem/self-concept, self-perception, physical exercise and lifestyle of adolescents. Method: A bibliographic search was carried out in the following databases: Virtual Health Library, Cochrane, Medline, Cuiden, Scielo, Dialnet, PubMed and Ministry of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare following the PICO method. The recommendations of the PRISMA statement were followed. Results: A total of 71 scientific articles were collected. Within the self-perception/self-concept questionnaires, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale stands out for being an optimal and widely used resource in adolescents. Regarding the questionnaires that evaluate self-perception, the General Health Questionnaire is the most used; it is used in numerous national health surveys in different countries. The Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents ranks first with respect to the rest of the tools. It is a widely used resource internationally and provides enough information on the physical activity carried out by the subject in a given week. Although there are several questionnaires that measure lifestyle, the Health Behavior in School-aged Children instrument was selected. This instrument is at the European level and involves the collaboration of 48 countries and allows us to compare the lifestyle habits of adolescents from different countries. Discussion: The questionnaire that stands out in the assessment of self-esteem/self-concept is the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. The General Health Questionnaire has been selected as the best tool for assessing self-perception. To measure physical exercise, the Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents is identified as the ideal instrument because it is widely used and can be completed quickly. Regarding lifestyle, the Health Behavior in School aged Children is shown to be an effective instrument in assessing lifestyle.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a new type of coronavirus that causes disorders of the respiratory system, acute pneumonia, and can lead to death. This community service is intended to provide understanding and knowledge about the prevention and transmission of COVID-19 to the wider community. This health education webinar community service activity is carried out online via Zoom. The material presented was about preventing and transmitting the virus during a pandemic according to the perception of COVID-19 survivors. Prior to the implementation of the educational webinar, participants were asked to register as well as fill out a questionnaire to measure the level of knowledge about preventing the transmission of COVID-19 (pre-test). Then at the end of the meeting, participants were asked to fill out the attendance list, and then fill out the questionnaire again (post-test). The results of the educational activity questionnaire showed that there was a good change in the level of knowledge between before and after being given educational materials with an average pre-test score of 63.84 and a post-test of 91.53 from 13 participants. So it can be concluded that this education can confirm audiovisually which can change the level of knowledge for the better.

Introdução: O trabalho docente é imprescindível para sociedade, mas de alta exigência e baixa valorização o que pode interferir na saúde de docentes. Objetivo:  avaliar a influência do trabalho docente no estilo, qualidade de vida (QV), e nível de atividade física (AF) de professores. Métodos: Estudo transversal avaliou docentes do ensino fundamental de escolas públicas. Foram utilizados instrumentos autopreenchidos pelos participantes sobre o perfil profissional, massa corporal, estatura autorreferidos, e calculado o índice de massa corpórea (IMC), para o perfil do estilo de vida individual (PEVI) utilizou-se Pentáculo do Bem-estar, a QV foi avaliada pelo Questionário de Qualidade de Vida - SF-36, e o nível de AF pelo International Physical Activity Questionnaire – IPAQ. Resultados: Participaram 93 docentes do sexo feminino com idade média de (43,5 ±7,8) anos, IMC (26,9 ± 4,8), com carga horária semanal de (40,4 ± 13,4) horas e tempo de serviço de (16,5 ± 7,9) anos. Sobre PEVI, a nutrição (1,57 ± 0,8), AF (0,94 ± 0,9), e controle do estresse (1,68 ± 0,9. Em relação a QV estão próximas aos valores mínimos de referência. 73,2% das docentes foram classificadas pelo IPAQ como irregularmente ativas ou sedentárias. Não foram encontrados correlação entre as variáveis. Foi observado associação p(0,01) entre AF, tempo de docência e PEVI. Conclusão: Foi possível concluir que embora as professoras tenham sido consideradas com boa QV, a maioria foi classificada com sobrepeso, estilo de vida abaixo do nível saudável e insuficientemente ativas. Estratégias institucionais devem ser implantadas para prevenção do adoecimento docente.

There is a paucity of effective intervention tools for overweight/obese women to assess, guide and monitor their eating behavior. This study aimed to develop a lifestyle intervention tool, assess its acceptability and usefulness, and verify its construct validity in overweight/obese women. The 6P tool (Portion, Proportion, Pleasure, Phase, Physicality, Psychology) was developed and 15 women with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 25 kg/m2 were interviewed to assess its perceived acceptability and usefulness. Subsequently, the revised 6P tool was tested in 46 women with a BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2. The Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire (TFEQ), International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short (IPAQ), and weight were measured at baseline and one-month. Most participants were satisfied with the presentation of the 6P tool (86.8%), and agreed it was useful in guiding healthy eating (81.6%) and raising awareness of eating behavior (97.4%). There were significant improvements in cognitive restraint (p = 0.010) and disinhibition (p = 0.030) (TFEQ), portion size (P1), pleasure behaviors (P3), and total composite 6P score (p < 0.001). However, there was no significant reduction in weight or increase in physical activity. The 6P tool is acceptable and presents with good validity for assessing lifestyle behaviors.

Introdução: a verificação da limitação ao fluxo aéreo ocasionado pelo tabagismo, por meio do pico de fluxo expiratório, é uma medida viável para estudos populacionais que permite a sinalização precoce ou prevenção da instalação crônica da doença pulmonar obstrutiva crônica. Objetivo: avaliar o grau de limitação ao fluxo expiratório em tabagistas em diferentes níveis de atividade física. Metodologia: trata-se de um estudo transversal, onde foram selecionados 68 fumantes ativos por mais de um ano, acima de 18 anos, de ambos os sexos.  O pico de fluxo expiratório foi obtido por meio do medidor portátil do modelo Mini-WrightTM® e o nível de atividade física foi avaliado pelo International Physical Activity Questionnaire 8.0. As variáveis estudadas foram descritas pela amplitude de variação das médias, desvios padrão, máximo, mínimo e coeficiente de variação, sendo estabelecido o nível de significância de 5% através do teste Qui-quadrado. Resultados: o percentual de redução dos valores do pico de fluxo expiratório, previsto em relação ao obtido, chegou a uma redução média de 56,87% em maiores de 60 anos e 53,19% em tabagistas com um tempo de prática maior de 30 anos. Houve aumento considerável do percentual médio de redução do pico de fluxo expiratório nos grupos de tabagistas insuficientemente ativos e sedentários. Conclusão: os resultados sugerem que a limitação ao fluxo expiratório foi mais acentuada em tabagistas do sexo feminino, acima de 60 anos, com tempo superior a 30 anos de prática do tabagismo e com baixo nível de atividade física. Os tabagistas considerados muito ativos apresentaram menor nível de limitação ao fluxo expiratório.
