Erdem Ayyildiz, Hamza Kaya Besler


Determining young athletes’ sleep quality and social media addiction is important for their performance. For this reason, our study aims to examine elite athletes’ sleep quality and social media addiction. There are three parts to the research. The first part consists of demographic information. In the second part, the social media addiction scale was used. This scale was developed by Firat and Barut (2018). In the third part, the athlete sleep behavior scale was used. The athlete sleep behavior scale was developed by Driller, Mah, and Halson (2018) and adapted into Turkish by Darendeli, Diker, and Cinar (2019). The research consists of 412 participants collected by convenience sampling method. In the study, MANOVA and correlation analysis were performed after Cronbach alpha, and Skewness-Kurtosis values were checked with the SPSS program. According to the results of the research, a negative relationship was found between habitual sleep quality and sleep disorder. This result shows that while increasing sleep disturbance decreases habitual sleep quality, decreasing sleep disturbance increases habitual sleep quality.
