  1. PBC = perceived behavioural control
  2. aReporting: median (range). All questionnaire items were completed on a scale ranging from 0.0–1.0 except sleep length, which was completed on a scale of 0.0–12.0 and had an interval of 0.5 units. A higher score indicated higher rating (e.g. better sleep quality, more hours of sleep) apart from PBC, where a higher score indicated higher perceived difficulty (i.e. less perceived behavioural control) to engage in PA
