TV viewing time and our well being

Mr Paddy Dempsey from Baker IDI has written an article about television viewing time with adults' well-being and vitality. According to the study, television viewing, a common leisure-time sedentary behaviour, is associated adversely with cardio-metabolic health, fatigue, depression and mental health.

However, associations of TV viewing time with health-related quality of life attributes are less well understood. The study examined associations of TV viewing time with physical well-being, mental well-being and vitality in a large population-based sample of Australian adults

It found that TV viewing time is associated adversely with physical well-being, mental well-being and vitality. Further studies are required to better understand potential causal relationships and variations by gender and leisure-time physical activity.
