Health care professionals were among those most severely impacted from COVID-19. The impacts were evident not only in their physical health but also their psychological one. Significant stresses and strains were reported. Studies were conducted to examine their psychological vulnerability. Limited were attempts to identify factors contributing to their eudaimonic well-being, which helps prevent their psychological distress and promote their happiness. With limited studies on this topic in Thailand, this research study was proposed to establish relationships that mindfulness, hope, and social connectedness had with eudaimonic well-being. Data were collected from 235 Thai health care professionals, aged 22-68 years (M = 38.12, SD = 10.74). Participants were mainly females (N = 196 or 83%). All voluntarily participated in this on-line study by responding to the measures of key study variables. Data obtained were analyzed using correlational analyses. Findings demonstrated that eudaimonic well-being was positively correlated with mindfulness (r = .62, p < .001), hope (r = .68, p < .001), and social connectedness (r = .40, p < .001). Multiple Regression Analysis was subsequently conducted, using an Enter method. The three variables studied signifiantly predicted eudaimonic well-being (F = 103.09, p < .001) and accounted for 75.70% of its variance (R² = .757, p < .001). Findings were discussed in terms of research and therapeutic implications in eudaimonic well-being enhancement. Authors:
