The present paper aims to observe the mindfulness state of two generations, the older generation comprising a group aged between 50 to 60 years of age, at the final stage of work life or on the verge of retirement, and the younger group aged between 20 to 30 years of age, belonging to a category that have started their career or finishing their business education. Assuming that the economic and social change can influence the state of mindfulness, the Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) was used to determine the difference. Factor Analyses extracted three behavioral dimensions, mechanical, distracted, and inattentive. Further Discriminant analysis grouped the factors on the same dimension of unmindfulness. The result demonstrated that the older group was found to be highly mindful and the younger group was found to be moderately unmindful.
