Abstract:Introduction. Emotion regulation seems to be the connection between the physiological concept of heart rate variability (HRV) and the psychological concepts resilience and mindfulness. It is shown that there is a strong correlation between emotion regulation and the two psychological factors mindfulness and resilience. The role of HRV regarding mindfulness, emotion regulation and resilience is not clearly investigated. HRV, mindfulness and resilience reflects to some extent self regulatory processes. Therefore the purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between HRV, mindfulness and resilience. Method. The data from this study were already collected by the Saxion University, School of Health in Enschede, Netherlands. 106 students participated in this study. It is a cross-sectional correlational design. To investigate the relationship between the variables multiple Pearson’s r correlation analyzes were applied. Results. The formulated hypotheses could not be confirmed. There are no significant correlations between HRV and mindfulness as well as between HRV and resilience. Discussion. This study has indicated that there is no support for the formulated hypotheses. This may be reasoned by some weaknesses of this study.
