Abstract

Objective The aim of this study is to compare and examine the biological rhythm and somatization levels of individuals who do and do not do sports, according to some variables. Methods The data used in this study were obtained by questionnaire. Personal Information Form, Biological Rhythm Interview of Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (BRIAN), and Somatization Scale were used as data collection tools in the study. Results As a result of the research, it was seen that there was a negative and significant relationship between Biological Rhythm Levels and Somatization Levels (r = -2.231, p < 0.01) of individuals who do and do not do sports. In addition, it was observed that Somatization and Biological Rhythm levels did not show a significant difference in gender variable dimension. There is no significant difference in the somatization dimension of the status of doing sports, there is a significant difference in the p < 0.05 level of doing sports in the Biological Rhythm dimension, there is no significant difference between the biological rhythm and somatization and the occupational status variable, and there is no significant difference between the age ranges and somatization. It was concluded that there was a significant difference at p < 0.05 level between Biological Rhythm and age ranges. Conclusions It has been stated that age-related changes are affected by biological (hormone level, body temperature, pulse, blood pressure, etc.) as well as environmental conditions.
