Abstract

"Mindfulness has become a popular tool for athletes, but the knowledge about the
exact associations between trait mindfulness and key performance variables are lacking. This
is especially problematic for athletes competing at a higher level where minor costs of a trait or
an intervention could easily outweigh the benefits. In this study we investigated the association
between self-reported level of mindfulness and performance on two PC based tests of inhibitory
control on forty-two professional soccer players. The results showed that the observation
facet of mindfulness was associated with better performance on one of the tests, while the
non-judgement facet was associated with lower performance on both tests due to more impulsive
responding. These findings suggest that trait mindfulness and inhibitory control is related,
but that the relationship may not only be beneficial."
