For decades physicians have been encouraging people to engage in physical exercise. Previous researches have shown that regularly exercising has an instant impact on one's body be it physical or psychological. The present study aimed to examine the relationship of exercise with happiness and self esteem. A cross-sectional comparative study was conducted to understand the impact of exercise on self esteem and happiness levels of the 60 participants (30 exercises and 30 non-exercisers) using the Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale and Oxford Happiness Questionnaire. Convenience and purposive sampling was used and the age of the sample selected varied from 18-30 years. The findings of the present study show that there does not exist a significant difference between the levels of self esteem and happiness among those who exercise regularly and those who do not. Overall, this research suggests people tend to indulge in many activities other than exercising, that boost their self esteem and make them happy.
