Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effects of selective exercises on self-efficacy, happiness, and mindfulness. Method: The current research method was quasi-experimental along with pretest/posttest and control group.  From all the addicts in Yazd city, 50 addicts were randomly selected and divided into two 25-person groups (control group and experimental group). Self-Efficacy Questionnaire, Oxford Happiness Inventory, and Mindfulness Questionnaire were used for data collection. The experimental group received selective exercises for 6 weeks and the control group did not receive any training or intervention. Analysis of covariance test (ANCOVA) was used to examine the influence of the exercise. Results: The results showed that the above-mentioned selective exercises had a significant effect on the promotion of self-efficacy, happiness, and mindfulness in the experimental group (P<0.05). Conclusion: It can be concluded that aerobic exercises lead to the improvement of psychological functions in addicts. Hence the relevant institutions are recommended to include these exercises in their programs in order to improve mental functions in addicts.
