Sitting time, physical activity and sleep related to work type and pattern.


There is evidence that time adults spend sitting, being physically active and sleeping are associated with several health outcomes including type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk. As work takes up a considerable proportion of the working adult’s life, it is likely to influence how adults spend their time in sleep, sedentary and active pursuits. This study will describe time spent sedentary, physically active and sleeping in young and mid aged women by work duration, type (white/blue collar) and patterns (shift work, work from home etc.). Findings will inform workplace interventions targeting health behaviours.
