Background & objectives: The quality of sleep and life are variables that have a very important role in organizing the social, physical and psychological aspects of human. This study aimed to compare the quality of life and sleep of active and passive soldiers.
Methods: Among 400 soldiers of shahid Abbas Doran Air Force base in Shiraz, 200 soldiers were selected by available sampling method and participated in this descriptive study. They were divided into two groups of active and inactive based on the amount of their physical activity per week and completed the Pittsburgh sleep quality and quality of life (SF-36) questionnaires. For data analysis, Mann-Whitney test was used in SPSS-16 software.
Results: The results showed that there was no difference between passive and active soldiers in the scale of the delay in falling asleep (p=0.41) and use of sleep medications (p=0.13), While there was a significant difference in overall score and other sleep quality variables (p<0.05). It was also found that there were significant differences in the quality of life variables between active and inactive soldiers (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Since active soldiers have better sleep quality and quality of life than passive soldiers, it can be concluded that the physical activity and exercise can have a positive impact on the quality of sleep and life of soldiers.
