The online questionnaire technique was used to obtain the data via e-mail and smartphone. The study was conducted during the summer of 2017. The survey conducted to the same healthy volunteer group one weak before Ramadan (May 22-26) and at the end of Ramadan (June 21-25). SPSS 21.0 statistical package was used in the data analysis. The statistical analyses were considered significant if p<0.05.

Results: 73 healthy volunteer subjects with no known health problems and who were not in the risk groups in terms of mental and physical health were included in the statistical evaluation. According to the DASS score, when the pre-Ramadan scores of the samples were compared to the post-Ramadan scores; depression (p=0.001), anxiety (p=0.01) and stress (p =0.002) scores were found to be lower at the end of Ramadan. When compared to the pre-Ramadan scores of the samples and the post-Ramadan scores; anxiety (p< 0.05) prevalence was found to be lower at the end of Ramadan.
