The results show that before the experiment, the overall situation of college teachers’ occupational stress and chronic anxiety is at a high level, while after the experiment, the occupational stress and chronic anxiety of college teachers are significantly relieved. In terms of gender, male teachers have higher occupational stress and chronic anxiety than female teachers before the experiment, and both have a good alleviating effect after the experiment. In terms of length of teaching, teachers with teaching experience of 1–5 years before the experiment have the highest levels of occupational stress and chronic anxiety, followed by teachers with 6–10 years, and finally teachers with more than 10 years. After the experiment, the occupational stress and chronic anxiety of teachers in the three length of teaching groups are significantly reduced to the medium level. In terms of professional titles, the teachers with the titles of teaching assistant and lecturer before the experiment have higher occupational stress and chronic anxiety than those with the titles of associate professor and professor. After the experiment, both of them are significantly reduced to the medium level. Therefore, the impact of aerobic exercise alternate activities on college teachers has a positive improvement effect, which can effectively promote the mental health of college teachers and alleviate the negative situation at work.
