INFLUENCE OF PHYSICAL EXERCISE ON PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH OF TEACHERS
The physical and mental health of teachers directly bears on the teaching effect. This paper aims to disclose how physical exercise affects the physical and mental health of teachers. A questionnaire survey was carried out on situations of teachers in a certain area. The physical and mental health, and job burnout of each subject were evaluated by the self-rated health assessment scale. The statistical analysis shows that male teachers have better mental health yet poorer physical health than female teachers, and both male and female teachers need to improve their physical health; the mental and physical health of teachers are affected in different degrees by the type of sports, the exercise frequency and the exercise duration; insufficient or excessive exercise is not conducive to physical and mental health. The research results highlight the importance of physical and mental health among teachers, and provide relevant improvement principles.
