The habits or lifestyles of individuals are generally considered as conditioning elements for their well-being and, thus, for their life quality. A number of essays indicate that sedentary lifestyles, so common in modern society, can be detrimental to health both, pysichally and psychlogically, in contrast with those lifestyles of people physically active. The aim of this work was to study the existing relationship between people who swim (physical activity of aerobic nature) regularly and a series of psychological variables linked to Psychological Well-being, in a sample of 60 women aged over 55. Among the results stand out the significant relationship between the practice of some sport and each of the features associated with Wellbeing: Global Physical Self-efficacy, Perceived Self-Presentation, Perceived Physical Ability, Global Self-esteem and Satisfaction with Life.
