Abstract

School settings had been full of stressors that negatively influence students’ mental health and academic performance. For solving students’ academic performance issues, mindfulness mediation had been used to improve their academic outcomes. This study had applied the information process theory to demonstrate the internal mechanism between mindfulness mediation and academic performance in three pathways with three major sections: cognitive process (students’ academic performance could be enhanced by improving attention on learning), information storage (by improving their working memory through mindfulness meditation), and executive cognition (by improving students’ overall executive function). This study had benefited from the summary of the mechanism of mindfulness meditation and academic performance, promoting the development of mindfulness meditation-related activities and applications, and improving students’ participation in mindfulness meditation interventions, thereby improving their academic performance.
