dc.description.abstractThe aim of the study was to test the effects of mindfulness meditation on attentional abilities, perceived stress and emotional acceptance. A qualitative component post intervention was also included. Participants (n = 25) reported an increase in attentional abilities and perceived stress following a three week mindfulness program. Mixed results were observed for self-control and emotional acceptance, as with the mediation of executive control by emotional acceptance. Four major themes emerged from the qualitative data: increased self-regulation, individual variations, necessity of an open attitude, and practice. Results supported previous literature identifying mindfulness as an important factor positive well-being and complex cognition. Further implications are discussed in relation to theory and practice.
