АНАЛИЗ ОТНОШЕНИЯ К ЗДОРОВОМУ ОБРАЗУ ЖИЗНИ, ФИЗИЧЕСКОЙ КУЛЬТУРЕ И СПОРТУ В СОВРЕМЕННОЙ РОССИИ
The article "Analysis of attitudes to a healthy lifestyle, physical culture and sports in modern Russia" is devoted to the study of changes in the attitude of Russian citizens to healthy lifestyle and mass sports. The study is based on statistical data for 2008-2013, including the results of sociological surveys conducted by the Yuri Levada Analytical Center, as well as monitoring indicators of the population's attitude to physical culture and sports in the territory of the Russian Federation for 2008-2012 and monitoring the effectiveness of the Executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation for 2011-2012. The relevance of this material is dictated by the fact that currently only a quarter of Russians systematically engage in physical culture and sports. The purpose of the article is to identify factors that contribute to the formation of healthy lifestyle, and to show the relationship and the need for targeted promotion of healthy lifestyle and physical culture to involve the General public in regular sports. The study shows a decrease in the proportion of young people among the number of people who pay serious attention to their physical fitness. At the same time, a link was found between a positive perception of life and regular sports. So, among those who perform physical exercises several times a week or daily, twice as many respondents call themselves happy as among Russians who rarely exercise. Thus, we see that there is an urgent need to increase measures to promote healthy lifestyle, mass sports and physical culture, first of all, as the main means of maintaining the health of the nation, preventing various diseases, fighting bad habits and creating a positive perception of reality by citizens of the country.
