Abstract

The goal of this study was to examine if sleep (i.e., sleep hygiene and sleep quality) and intuitive eating (e.g., eating when hungry and not eating when not hungry) mediate the links between mindful awareness and self-compassion. We had 189 students report on a survey about sleep hygiene, intuitive eating, mindfulness practice mindful awareness, and self-compassion. Our original hypothesis was not supported. However, posthoc analysis showed support for an alternative model with intuitive eating and mindful awareness as mediators of sleep patterns and self-compassion. However, further research is needed to better understand how much are people in general practicing mindfulness and engaging in intuitive eating.
