The link between gratefulness and subjective well-being has been consistently supported theoreti-cally and empirically over the past two decades (Emmons & McCullough, 2003; Fredrickson, 2004; McCullough et al., 2004). More complex examinations of the underlying mechanisms be-tween gratefulness and subjective well-being have yet to be explored (Wood et al., 2010). The cur-rent study uses a path analysis to test the hypothesis that mindfulness mediates the relationship be-tween gratefulness and subjective well-being in a college-aged population. Findings support the role of mindfulness as a mediator between gratefulness and happiness, and positive affect. Implica-tions of the study may expand the understanding of the relation between constructs within positive psychology as well as inform the development of strength-based interventions for college-aged in-dividuals.
