The Relationship between Cyber Leisure Activity and Autonomic Function in High School Students



INFORMATION : page. 33~40 / 2012 Vol.14 No.1


빠르게 변화하는 현대사회에서 여가생활은 에너지를 재충전하고 자신을 되돌아보게 함으로써 개인의 삶의 질을 향상시켜 준다. 더욱이 신체적·정신적으로 큰 변화를 경험하는 청소년기의 건전한 여가 활용은 개인의 창조적 활동과 건강을 증진시키고 삶을 보람되게 함으로써 개인이 집단생활 속에서 상호 경쟁과 협력관계에 대한 올바른 이해와 태도를 길러주고 건전한 사회인으로 성장하는 데 기여한다(Huh, 2009). 그러나 실제 우리 청소년들은 입시위주의 주입식 및 지식편중의 교육으로 인하여 학교생활 이외의 다른 분야의 문화생활을 경험하지 못하며 이용할 수 있는 여가 공간 및 시설의 양적, 질적 미비로 인하여 바람직한 여가 경험을 할 수 있는 기회가 제한되어 있다(Ministry of Health and Welfare, 2009).

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between cyber leisure activity and autonomic function in high school students. Methods: The subjects of this study were 242 second graders at high school located in D city. The research design was descriptive correlation study. Data were collected from August 26 to September 17, 2010, using a cyber leisure questionnaire and heart rate variability (SA-6000, Medicore, Korea) for autonomic function. Results: Total time for the cyber leisure activity was 391.3± 262.0 (min/week). Time for internet usage and computer game was 234.5±140.1 (min/week) and 156.8±164.3 (min/week), respectively. There were significant positive correlation between total cyber leisure time and sympathetic activity (r=.247, p<.001). Conclusion: Excessive cyber leisure activity could increase sympathetic activities in high school students. Thus, nursing intervention to reduce the total cyber leisure time will be helpful to improve their neurophysiological status.
