Purpose: According to the Omani Ministry of Health, more than half of Omani adults are obese. Obesity had caused psychological anguish and causes substantial repercussions on physical health in the educational context. Obesity impacts school students and teachers’ knowledge of health education. Teachers have a huge impact on how students develop their body image, attitudes, and behaviors, so ensuring they are competent is crucial. Yet, studies investigating teachers’ perception of body image were limited in previous research. Methodology: The current study intended to study the relationship between negative body image and life satisfaction. Participants were 407 female teachers from Oman with their age ranging from 20 to 50 years old. A Google forms survey was used to recruit participants. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS version 23 statistical tools. The result indicated that negative statistical correlation was found between negative body image and life satisfaction. Contributions: The study findings contribute to extending previous research on body image perception, especially in Arab nations. The findings of the study have implications for teacher mental health, especially the impact of negative body image on overall life satisfaction and mental health.
