DescriptionThis study is based on Crawford, Jackson, and Godbey's model of leisure constraints (1991), and examines the relationships between the influences of perceived constraints, frequency of participation, and health status in the context of leisure-time outdoor activities. The study was based on a sample of 234 Korean university students. This study provides further support for this model of leisure constraints: intrapersonal, interpersonal, and structural. The results indicated that the higher interpersonal constraints, the lower the frequency of activity participation. Moreover, the results demonstrated that highly interpersonally constrained participants tended to rate themselves lower with respect to mental heath. In addition, respondents who participated more frequently in these activities tended to give higher self-reports concerning their mental health.
