Relationship between healthy habits and academic performance in students of the Jaume I University

Author(s): Alberto GIMENO TENA, Aurora ESTEVE CLAVERO

Introduction: University students are a population group that can adopt bad habits of life. Studies suggest that there is a relationship between healthy lifestyle habits and good academic performance, so health education can improve these and, in turn, contribute to improving academic outcomes.

Objectives: Explore the relationship between living habits and academic performance in students of the Jaume I University.

Methodology: Cross-sectional descriptive study. Population sample of 114 students. Data collection through an ad hoc questionnaire, reviewed by a committee of experts. A preliminary descriptive analysis and a bivariate analysis are performed to determine if there is an association between variables.

Results: No student has a high adherence to the Mediterranean diet. 39.47% have low adherence. There is a relationship between gender and students’ academic performance. Statistical difference is observed between where students eat and where their food came from and their academic record. There is also a statistical difference between social variables and students’ academic performance, as well as with the degree of responsibility.

Conclusion: Factors that influence academic performance have been identified, which will allow health education interventions to be established by nurses in order to improve it.
