Emotional intelligence, mindfulness and subjective well- being: a mediational analysis
Research has indicated that elevated levels of mindfulness are often associated with positive effects on mental health, greater satisfaction in relationships including greater subjective well-being. The present investigation was undertaken to study the mediating role of emotional intelligence in the relationship between mindfulness and subjective well-being. A sample of 100 adolescents completed the short form of Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory, Assessing Emotions scale, also the Positive and Negative Affect scale and the Multidimensional Student’s Life Satisfaction scale as an index of subjective well-being. Path analysis was used in order to assess the mediating influence of emotional intelligence on mindfulness and subjective well-being. The results revealed that higher level of mindfulness was positively correlated with greater emotional intelligence, life satisfaction, positive affect and lower negative affect. Emotional Intelligence also mediated between mindfulness and two indicators of subjective well-being i.e. Positive and negative affect and Life satisfaction.
