Abstract

The purpose of this study is to study the relationship between physical activity and mental health and to explore the basis of strengthening physical activity and mental health. Based on the conclusions of this study, the following suggestions are made: To consider that most respondents are male, it is recommended to add physical activities wherein females will be attracted to participate so as to enhance their physical as well as mental health like aerobics dancing, yoga, and cheerleading dance. A physically active lifestyle due to the individual sports activity to accomplish, which was closely followed by identifying physical activities like running, jumping, or breathing that provide opportunities for health enhancement and enjoyment must be maintained or regularly done. The component of mental and physical health promotion should always be monitored by data evaluation like before and after evaluation forms to be filled up by the coach/teacher. The lowest mean score was evident by feeling anxious and experiencing shortness of breath. It is recommended to check the vitals of every stu-dent who engages in PE since cardiovascular and other common health problems encountered by young people should be addressed and treated before they become fatal.
