Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine how connection to nature and mindfulness independently and jointly relate to psychological well-being, specifically: (1) the mediating role of mindfulness on the association between connection to nature and psychological well-being; and (2) whether connection to nature and mindfulness moderate the association between perceived stress and psychological well-being. Participants (N = 360; 65.8% female) completed surveys assessing their connection to nature, mindfulness, and psychological well-being. Results revealed that mindfulness significantly mediated the association between connection to nature and psychological well-being. Mindfulness also significantly moderated the association between perceived stress and two indicators of psychological well-being. Limitations of the current study and future directions are discussed.
