dc.description.abstractThis study examines the effect of regular physical activity in relieving stress and improving overall well-being in adults. The study employed a correlative, quantitative, cross-sectional design using within subjects. A questionnaire was administered in order to collect data in relation to participant's exercise regime, perceived stress, life satisfaction, happiness and general health. A total of 120 participants, who ranged in age and gender, took part in the study. The results of the research found that participants who reported taking part in regular physical activity displayed significantly lower levels of perceived stress and improved overall well-being than non-exercisers. The conclusion can also be drawn that social support, context control and general self-efficacy are important factors in the alleviation of perceived stress.
