Abstract: Psychology is the science of activities of an individual in relation to his environment. Literally Psychology means knowledge of the soul. Psyche means “Solu”, logos means “Science”. The firm soul could not satisfactorily be explained. So Psychology is defined as the science of mind. Some Psychologists analysed the mind, and said that the mind could think, feel and act. These are the states of structures of mind. The most accepted definition is that, Psychology is the science of behaviour and experience. Behaviour induces all manifestation of life. As a pure science Psychology is concerned primarily with systematic study of behaviour and other verification through experimentation. Sports psychology is the study of how psychology influences sports, athletic performance, exercise, and physical activity. Some sports psychologists work with professional athletes and coaches to improve performance and increase motivation. Other professionals utilize exercise and sports to enhance people’s lives and well-being throughout the entire lifespan. To make a research paper interesting, it is necessary to have a good topic in hand. Since psychology offers a plethora of topics, students may have a difficult time in choosing one.
