Abstract: This research explores the relationship between mindfulness and the well-being in adult individuals studying in management institutions of India in the COVID pandemic times. The responses were collected via online survey from adult postgraduate students (N = 481) from management institutions of India. Regression and a moderation analysis were used to explore the effect of trait mindfulness on well-being and the moderation effect of gender in the relationship. The study indicated favourable results suggesting that mindfulness leads to the increase in well-being of the adults. Also, the female adult postgraduates were found to be more mindful as compared the males. The limitations and implications of the study have also been discussed. This study adds to the theory of flourishing suggesting that mindful individuals would have better well-being.
