This study examined facets of mindfulness as mediating the associations between anxious and avoidant attachment with sleep disturbances. In addition, the study tested whether the indirect links between anxious and avoidant attachment and sleep disturbances was strongest through the mindfulness facet acting with awareness. A sample of college students (N = 535; Mage = 20.17) completed measures of anxious and avoidant attachment, facets of mindfulness, and sleep disturbances. The study hypotheses were examined using mediation analyses and pairwise contrasts tests using structural equation modeling procedures. Results revealed the mindfulness facets nonreactivity and nonjudging significantly mediated the link between anxious attachment and sleep disturbances. Results also revealed the indirect paths from anxious attachment to sleep disturbances through the nonjudging and nonreactivity facets to be greater in magnitude than its direct association. The implications of study findings are discussed in relation to research and clinical practice and in consideration of the study limitations.
