Happiness associates several areas, including affective well-being (feelings of joy and pleasure), as well as our sense of meaning and purpose in life, together with our own life satisfaction. Happiness is generally associated with better health. Physical activity is significantly related to life satisfaction and happiness in young, middle-aged, and older adults.
In adolescents, studies illustrate that even short-term, physical activity promotes happiness and vice versa; Showing that physical activity is not only important for the physical health of youth, but also plays an important role in their mental well-being.
In addition to the above, life satisfaction and happiness increased with increasing age. The results support the promotion of physical activity for all.
Best wishes, David
