Abstract:The research on self-regulation has widely proven strong positive correlations between self-regulation and well-being. Mindfulness has also proven beneficial for well-being by reducing suffering. This study investigates the relationship between self-regulation and well-being in students to further validate existing findings. Following, it was investigated whether levels of mindfulness function as a partial mediator in this relationship to further explain the underlying mechanisms of why self-regulation predicts well-being. Therefore, a sample of 102 university students filled in self-report questionnaires about self-regulation, well-being, and mindfulness, so intercorrelations between these three domains could be assessed. The analysis showed a significant positive influence of self-regulation on well-being (p < .01). A mediating role of mindfulness in this relationship was not found in this sample. Nevertheless, self-regulation was found to also predict levels of mindfulness. It is suggested to further investigate the exact interplay between these three variables. Keywords: mindfulness, self-regulation, well-being, students, mediation
