Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka sambanden mellan koncentration, sömn, stress och kost och samtidigt undersöka vilka av variablerna som har mest samband med koncentration. Undersökningen fokuserade även på skillnaderna mellan könen. I studien användes en kvantitativ metod, med hjälp av enkäter som delades ut till ungdomar som gick tredje året på Naturvetenskapliga programmet i Västra Götaland. Urvalet var 65 elever, varav 32 flickor och 27 pojkar. Eleverna var mellan18 och 19 år gamla. Resultaten visade att det finns ett mycket starkt positivt samband mellan koncentration och stress samt mellan koncentration och sömn. Sambanden mellan koncentration och kost, stress och sömn, stress och kost, sömn och kost var positivt starkt. Resultaten visade också att flickorna upplever mer stress, sömnsvårigheter, mindre intag av kost och sämre koncentrationsförmåga än pojkarna. Stress, sömn och kost förklarar en stor del av variansen i pojkars och flickors förmåga att koncentrera sig vilket är mycket viktigt, inte minst när de skall prestera i skolan
