Background: In this paper, we investigate how dispositional attentional quality is present, and its correlation with measures of well-being, in university student’s naïve in meditation practice.
Methods: A total of 40 students (20 females) were asked to fill self-reported measures of stress, anxiety, affect, and dispositional mindfulness.
Results: Negative correlations between some mindfulness facets and perceived stress, anxiety, and negative affect were found. The Non-judgement facet moderated the relationship between Observe and state anxiety, in which mild and high non-judgement levels prevent their positive relationship.
Conclusion: Attentional quality in non-meditating university students seem to be important in regulating the ongoing experience of anxiety.
