Author(s):

Abstract:

This study investigates differences in health consciousness between sportsmen and non-sportsmen. Using a sample of 100 male students from SB School in Changanacherry, Kottayam, Kerala, divided equally between sportsmen with at least district-level sports participation and non-sportsmen, we applied the Health Consciousness Scale by N.V.V.S. Narayana. Our findings, derived from t-tests performed using the Mega State software, indicate significant differences in self-practice, nutrition and satisfaction, energy, and cautiousness factors of health consciousness, with sportsmen showing greater awareness and practices in these areas than non-sportsmen. However, no significant differences were noted in monitoring factors between the two groups. These results suggest that engagement in sports may enhance certain aspects of health consciousness.
