          Abstract

          We explored the moderating and mediating roles of self-concept and selfcontrol on the relationship between trait mindfulness and cell phone addiction. A sample of 259 Chinese adolescents completed measures related to cell phone addiction, trait mindfulness, self-control, self-concept, and their background information. Results showed that (a) trait mindfulness is positively related to self-control and self-concept, while negatively related to cell phone addiction; (b) self-control plays a mediating role between trait mindfulness and cell phone addiction; (c) self-concept plays a moderating role on the mediation pathway of self-control on trait mindfulness and cell phone addiction. The results underscore the importance of identifying the mechanisms that moderate the mediated path between trait mindfulness and cell phone addiction. These findings point to the potential implications about how to reduce the overuse of cell phones among adolescents through improving their levels of trait mindfulness, self-control, and self-concept.
