SILVA, Karolaine Naiara de Oliveira; ROMANO, Amanda Rizzieri; SILVA, Maynara Priscila Pereira da  and  PEIXOTO, Evandro Morais. State Mindfulness Scale for Physical Activity: further validity evidence. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-18. ISSN 1982-1247.

The aim of this study was to estimate validity evidence based on the relation with external variables for the State Mindfulness Scale for Physical Activity. For this purpose, means comparison was performed between groups of sports and yoga practitioners, as well as association analysis between mindfulness and passion. The sample consisted of 85 people (29.16 ± 10.93), 58 were regular practitioners of different sports, and 27 were yoga practitioners. Student's t-tests indicated meaningful differences between the groups, with higher mindfulness levels for yoga practitioners. Pearson correlation indicated positive associations between mindfulness and harmonious passion and absence of association with obsessive passion, confirming the theoretical hypothesis of convergent and discriminant validity.
