Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between perception of emotional intelligence and beliefs in the extent to which exercising leads to mood-enhancement.
Methods: Volunteer participants (N= 315) completed a 33-item selfreport measure of trait emotional intelligence and an exercise-mood regulation scale.
Results: Emotional intelligence significantly correlated with beliefs that exercise could be used to regulate mood (r =0.45, P<0.01).
Conclusion: Findings demonstrate that using exercise to regulate mood relates significantly to emotional intelligence and suggest that individuals who use exercise to enhance mood report higher scores of emotional intelligence.
