Neeraj Malik and Dr. Gurmeet SinghAbstract:
Introduction: In this research, a very significant facet of everyday life-namely, leisure activities has been given attention in relation to BMI. The correlation between engaging in leisure activities and body mass index was investigated.
Method: For the purpose of this research, one hundred fifty students from a school based in Chandigarh, also known as the city beautiful, were chosen as subjects. Their height and weight were measured to determine their body mass index (BMI), and the Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire (1985) was used to collect data for leisure activity and to determine the level of physical activity done in leisure activity.
Results: The end result demonstrated a statistically significant link, with r being -0.286 and P being more than 0.05. The finding was statistically significant, although the association was less than expected given that the value was so low.
Conclusions: Finally, we may draw the conclusion that the value of one variable rises in tandem with an increase in the value of a second variable; hence, engaging in recreational activities is necessary to work toward the goal of improving one's health.
