Abstract Introduction: Increasing of sedentary behavior in daily life among adolescents become a crucial problem in Thailand. These situation can lead to a negative effect on health and affects development of adolescents. Method: This study aims to understand the effects of an “Active Living Skills” model for reducing sedentary behavior and promoting active lifestyle among adolescents in school based on the theories of behavior modification. This study is a quasi-experimental research with case-controlled study design. The experimental group was implemented “Active Living Skills” activities while the control was not. A probability sample of 387 students were conducted quantitative surveys for 3 rounds: pre, post, and follow-up phrases. Results:<\b>
Independent sample t-test indicated that sedentary behavior of the experiment group is significantly decreased (t = -3.48***). The physical activity level of the experiment group was also significantly higher compared to control group (t = 4.26***). Paired t-test also confirmed that “Active Living Skills” yield positive results in reducing sedentary behavior (t = -8.21***) and in increasing physical activity (t = 2.97***). Multiple linear regression analysis also verified that “Active Living Skills” significantly reduce sedentary behavior and promote physical activity among adolescents. Conclusion:<\b>
The findings from this study suggested that “Active Living Skills” effectively reduce sedentary behaviors and increase physical activities among the adolescents as well as eliminating the equipment and budget inequality affecting the students’ behavior.
