Abstract
Background: The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of daily mindfulness in parents with 3 to 5-year-old children on their stress and psychological well-being.
Methods: Based on the previous studies, this study established a research model in which parent’s mindfulness affects their psychological well-being by the mediation of stress, and verified the relationship between them using 283 parents data set.
Results: First, mindfulness and psychological well-being in the ages of 40s was significantly higher than the 20s∼30s. Second, parent’s mindfulness and psychological well-being showed high positive correlation, and stress showed high negative correlation with mindfulness and psychological well-being. Third, it was verified that mindfulness not only directly affects psychological well-being but also indirectly influences psychological well-being by reducing their stress.
Conclusions: This study suggests that daily mindfulness in parents with 3 to 5-year-old children is effective in managing their stress and improving their psychological well-Being.
