The overall living standards of human beings have improved greatly with the continuous economic and social development, but the new lifestyles have also resulted in reduced physical activity and increased psychological stress, especially among the adolescent. To improve the physical and mental health of students, it is particularly vital to strengthen physical education, emphasize mental health education and life education. Meaning in life is one of the important indicators predicting individual psychological health, and adolescence is an important stage in the exploration of students?meaning in life, so a probe into the relationship between active physical activity and meaning in life among the adolescent is of great significance for teaching practice. In this paper, we conducted a correlation analysis based on data from a questionnaire survey of 150 school students using the Physical Activity Rating Scale and the Meaning in life Questionnaire (MLQ). It’s revealed that there is a significant positive correlation between physical exercise and the Meaning in Life among school students and school students are more likely to discover and have meaning in life when their amount of exercise increases.
