Background: The increase in psychological problems during COVID-19 is the most important factor for unbalanced mental health. Thus, the fate of psychological problems such as anger, depression, fatigue, and tension make physical educators exhausted.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with five hundred and eighty physical educators. A semi-structured online questionnaire has been developed with Google Forms. It consists of socio-demographic information and The Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS). BRUMS has six subdomains, each containing four mood descriptors. We chose four subdomains for this study, namely anger, depression, fatigue, and stress. Participants had to submit their responses on a five-point Likert scale. Descriptive analyses and analysis of variance test were used to find the differences between the different categories of psychological parameters.

Results: The results showed that females were more likely than males to experience anger, depression, and fatigue. Married physical educators were more likely for anger and tension. Physical educators belong to urban areas were more prone to anger, depression, fatigue, and tension. A significant difference was found for the designation level, while insignificant differences were found between all categories by educational level and living style.

Conclusion: Our finding highlights the comparison of psychological factors amongst physical educators based on their socio-demographic characteristics during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Factors should be taken into consideration to protect the mental health of physical educators and society.
