The purpose of this study was to test a 12-week exercise intervention and its effects on sleep and fatigue in older community-dwelling women. Sleep disruption is estimated to affect more than 20% of all Americans adults (Morin & Espie, 2003). Exercise as an intervention to reduce sleep disruption has been studied with mixed results (Bunnell et al., 1983; Ohayon, 2004; Youngstedt et al., 1997). Although women have been studied in fewer intervention sleep studies, women report poorer sleep and more fatigue than men (Singh et al., 1997; Ceolim & Menna-Barreto, 2000; Li et al., 2004). The Theory of Planned Behavior Beliefs (Conn, Tripp-Reimer, & Maas, 2003) guided this study. After IRB approval, 15 women over 50 years of age participated in this study. The participants began an exercise routine of their choice that was a minimum of 30 minutes in total time for at least 3 days each week. Demographic information was collected. Exercise was self-recorded in a daily diary. Sleep was measured by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)(Buysee et al.,1989) and actigraphy (Ambulatory Monitoring Inc., Ardsley, NY). Fatigue was recorded using the Visual Analog Scale for Fatigue (Lee et al., 1990). Sleep and fatigue were measured at baseline and at 4-week intervals. Actigraphs were worn for 48 continuous hours at each interval. Data was entered into the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, version 11.0. Data analysis tests will include: descriptive statistics, Repeated Measures Analysis of Variance, and Pearson's Correlation Coefficient. Actigraphy data will be analyzed using Action4 software (Ambulatory Monitoring Inc., Ardsley, NY). Cronbach's alpha will be performed on PSQI and actigraphy data to determine the reliability between PSQI and actigraphy measurements. Exercise, which is less expensive and is safer, may be a better option than taking sleep medication for women with sleep disruption.
