A sample of 561 male and female undergraduate students, aged 18-24, from private and public universities in the Philippines, completed measures of the variables. The study's research design is quantitative correlational and cross-sectional. Variables were measured using Cognitive and Affective Mindfulness Scale, Satisfaction with Life Scale, Scale of Positive and Negative Experiences, and Autonomy Need Satisfaction Subscale of Basic Psychological Needs Satisfaction Scale.

The results yielded in this study aimed to have theoretical, empirical, and practical contributions in the field of clinical psychology as a science and as a practice.
