• Considering the benefit of conducting meta-analysis by combining the results of multiple studies, it would be worthwhile to investigate the impact of leisure activities among different ethnic/cultural/gender groups to determine if the effect sizes are homogeneous.
• Additionally, the categorization or classification of preferred leisure activities can also be determined depending on different aspects of the group.
• Given our current study used depressive symptoms as a dependent variable, a future study may examine similar mental health outcomes including anxiety, distress, or sadness.
• The results of the present study may be applicable not only to older adults without disabilities but also to those who have specific disabilities (e.g., dementia, Alzheimer, or arthritis).
• A majority of older adults have limited access to leisure programs and are lacking social contacts outside their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • This study demonstrated the efficacy of implementing a psychological questionnaire aimed at determining the current and ongoing anxiety states, to predict plausible psycho-hormonal consequences on future sports performance. Measuring the innate anxiety states can provide valuable information on a player’s proneness for stress, not only at a psychological level but also as seen with cortisol surges, which can have detrimental performance effects.
  • A few limitations were however identified. Testing a larger population would prove valuable, not only for excluding outliers from slanting the statistics, but also to determine dissimilarities between starters, non-starters, positions, and duration of playtime and more profound correlations between variables. Furthermore, analyzing testosterone together with cortisol and the psychological questionnaires will provide valuable insights into the psycho-hormonal relationships that take place.
