New scientific article about movement guidelines and stress

Dr Nejc Šarabon, Kaja Kastelic and Dean Lipovac, InnoRenew CoE researchers, together with colleagues Željko Pedišić and Si-Tong Chen from Victoria University, Australia, and Nika Kastelic from the Health Centre Murska Sobota, Slovenia, published an article, “Associations of meeting 24-h movement guidelines with stress and self-rated health among adults: Is meeting more guidelines associated with greater benefits?”, in BMC Public Health.

“Several countries have recently issued 24-h movement guidelines that include quantitative recommendations for moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep,” the authors stated in the article’s abstract.

The article concludes that adults should be encouraged to meet as many movement behaviour guidelines as possible in order to reduce stress levels and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
