The current study proposes a mindfulness model of trait resilience through the mediating roles of positive
affection and cognitive flexibility. The study’s participants comprised 204 adults (111 females, 93 males).
The Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (Brown & Ryan, 2003), Positive Affect sub-test of Positive and
Negative Affect Schedule (Watson, Clerk, & Tellegen, 1988), Cognitive Flexibility Scale (Martin & Rubin,
1995) and Brief Resilience Scale (Smith et al., 2008) were used as data collection instruments. The results
of the path analysis showed that mindfulness has significantly positive relationships with positive affection
and cognitive flexibility, while both positive affection and cognitive flexibility have significantly positive
relationships with resilience. The proposed model formed was found to account for 17% of the variance in
trait resilience scores of participants.
