Description

The purpose of this study was to investigate associations between factors of physical activity and satisfaction with life in a sample of college students. Two hundred and twenty-five male and female college students completed a 10-question survey on a voluntary basis. Questions touched on the frequency and type of exercise, satisfaction with life, mood, and other related factors. Most participants (p=85) rated themselves satisfied or very satisfied with life (n=192). 81% of the participants who exercised 5 or more times a week and 87% of those who reported having exercised in the past week reported that they were satisfied or very satisfied with life. 88% of participants reported having exercised in the past week, so satisfaction rates should be studied in more diverse groups to better determine associations.
