Abstrakt

Syftet med studien var att undersöka i vilken utsträckning mindfulness hos studenter predicerades av välmående (i form av livstillfredsställelse), kön, ålder och utbildning. Mindfulness är av intresse eftersom det är hjärtat i den buddistiska traditionen i form av mindfulness meditation och vägen mot upplysningen. Men det är också en inriktning inom psykologin där mindfulness betyder att närvara i stunden. Min hypotes är att mindfulness kan skapa utrymme att omvärdera den subjektiva värderingen av hur nöjd man är med sitt liv. 66 kvinnor och 47 män ingick i studien. Två mätinstrument i form av Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) och Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) sammanställdes till en enkät tillsammans med de andra variablerna. En multipel regressionsanalys visade att det gick att konstatera ett signifikant samband mellan mindfulness och livstillfredsställelse i samklang med tidigare forskning inom detta område. Det fanns inget signifikant samband mellan mindfulness och någon av de andra undersökta variablerna.

Abstract

The aim for this study was to explore to what extent mindfulness of students could be predicted by well-being (life satisfaction), gender, age and education. Mindfulness is interesting because it is the heart of the Buddhist tradition in the shape of mindful meditation and the way to enlightenment. But it is also an orientation in psychology where mindfulness can be defined as being conscious in the present moment. My hypothesis is that mindfulness can create ways to revaluate the subjective view of how satisfied people are with their lives. 66 woman and 47 men participated in this study. Two measuring instruments; Mindless Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) and Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) were compiled into one survey together with the other variables. A multiple regression analysis showed that there was a significant relationship between mindfulness and life satisfaction according to earlier research in this area. There was no significant relationship between mindfulness and any of the other investigated variables.
