Mindfulness Intervention: Mindfulness-Based College
Target Health Outcomes: Health behaviors, mental health, and performance in emerging adults aged 18-24 years.
Summary: This study is evaluating the effects of a mindfulness-based intervention customized to direct participants attention and self-awareness to their relationship with determinants of well-being and performance in emerging adulthood, including diet, physical activity, alcohol and drug use, sleep, stress reactivity and social relationships. Funded in part by the Office of the Provost and an administrative supplement by the National Institutes of Health Common Fund Science of Behavior Change Initiative, and the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, there is a major emphasis on evaluating plausible self-regulation mechanisms, including attention control, self-awareness and emotion regulation.
