Question asked: "Yesterday, about how long did you spend doing activities that needed moderate effort, making you somewhat short of breath? For example walking upstairs, going to the gym, jogging, energetic dancing, aerobics, most sports, using heavy power tools and other physically demanding DIY & gardening."
If the participant activated the Help feature they were shown the message:
Please guess how long you spent in total doing medium effort activities yesterday. How tired you feel from these types of activities will depend on your individual level of fitness (so a fitter person will not need to breathe as hard as a less fit person). At work: carrying moderately heavy objects, pushing a wheelchair, using heavy power tools, active farm work, taking care of farm animals, coal mining, teaching sports etc. Walking: very brisk walking or walking uphill, walking upstairs, backpacking, marching, power walking, using crutches etc. Jogging: this is defined as running at a gentle pace. Dancing: fast or energetic dancing (not slow ballroom dancing). Cycling: for travelling to work or leisure (not racing or uphill) cycling, also includes unicycling. Sports/exercise: push-ups, weight-lifting, working out in a gym, aerobics, team sports (not competitively played) such as football, golf, horse riding, tennis, track & field, gentle swimming, skiing, ice-skating etc. Gardening: includes energetic tasks such as digging, light to moderate shovelling, mowing the lawn, using heavy power tools, chopping wood etc. DIY/home improvement: includes such fairly demanding tasks such as building a fence, sawing hardwood, cleaning gutters, using heavy power tools, sanding floors etc.
