The survey was conducted in a bid to explore the positive meta-emotion, mindfulness and the positive influence of metacognition on well-being among emerging adults. Positive metacognitions and meta-emotions (PMCE) can be termed as having resilient and adaptive metacognitive principles concerning emotional and cognitive procedures when confronted with a puzzling condition. A questionnaire on Positive Metacognitions and Positive MetaEmotions Questionnaire (PMCEQ-18, Beer & Moneta 2010) was utilized for the current study. Mindfulness entails the awareness that involves consciously appearing for one's moment-to-moment knowledge and experience. Mindfulness scale developed by Singh, Junnarkar, and Kaur (2016) was used for the present study. Well-being refers to a state of optimal experience and functioning. Well-being scale developed by Singh, Junnarkar, and Kaur (2016) was used for the present study. The sample consisted of 202 female participants, sampling technique used was convenient and snowball sampling. Results indicated that both PMCE (p=.000) and mindfulness (p=.007) have significant influence on well-being. Further it was seen that PMCE and mindfulness do not have a significant interaction effect (p=0.899) on well-being. The findings have broad implications for designing intervention programs for teaching the meta-level cognitive skills like PMCE and mindfulness to the emerging adult population. Further, it builds in scope for future research for better understanding the constructs mindfulness and adaptive metacognitions and its relation theoretically.

Abstract


The survey was conducted in a bid to explore the positive meta-emotion, mindfulness and the positive influence of metacognition on well-being among emerging adults. Positive metacognitions and meta-emotions (PMCE) can be termed as having resilient and adaptive metacognitive principles concerning emotional and cognitive procedures when confronted with a puzzling condition. A questionnaire on Positive Metacognitions and Positive MetaEmotions Questionnaire (PMCEQ-18, Beer & Moneta 2010) was utilized for the current study. Mindfulness entails the awareness that involves consciously appearing for one's moment-to-moment knowledge and experience. Mindfulness scale developed by Singh, Junnarkar, and Kaur (2016) was used for the present study. Well-being refers to a state of optimal experience and functioning. Well-being scale developed by Singh, Junnarkar, and Kaur (2016) was used for the present study. The sample consisted of 202 female participants, sampling technique used was convenient and snowball sampling. Results indicated that both PMCE (p=.000) and mindfulness (p=.007) have significant influence on well-being. Further it was seen that PMCE and mindfulness do not have a significant interaction effect (p=0.899) on well-being. The findings have broad implications for designing intervention programs for teaching the meta-level cognitive skills like PMCE and mindfulness to the emerging adult population. Further, it builds in scope for future research for better understanding the constructs mindfulness and adaptive metacognitions and its relation theoretically.
