Aims The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between exercise and mental health and provide insights and problem-solving plans regarding this relationship. Instruments & Methods This research used a combination of experimental, correlational, and qualitative approaches by measuring the level of physical activity and mental health in the studied population and assessing the relationship between these two variables through correlational studies. The used tools were the Sports and Physical Activity Questionnaire Mental Health Questionnaire, Sports Assessment Scale, and physiological tests. Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficient, regression analysis, and t-test using SPSS 21 software. Findings There was a strong positive relationship between the level of physical activity and mental health evidenced by the Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.893 and the linear regression equation value of 0.749. T-test values obtained from the two groups with different levels of physical activity were statistically significant (p=0.05). Conclusion Exercise has a positive impact on mental health and can help reduce the risk of mental disorders. Regular exercise can improve psychological well-being and reduce stress. Exercise is also associated with improved physical fitness and better sports achievements. Further studies are needed to identify the types and intensities of the most effective exercise in improving mental and physical health.
