Objective: Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes severe side effects in patients. According to the previous studies, the incidence of depression and anxiety is higher among patients with diabetes type 2. The present study was conducted with the aim of examining the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction program and conscious yoga on depression, anxiety and stress in patients with diabetes type 2. Materials and Methods: The study was quasi-experimental with pre-test, post-test, control group and a 2-month follow-up. 24 patients among patients with diabetes who referred to Imam Hossein hospital were selected in an available way and were randomly assigned into experimental (n1=12) and control groups (n2=12). The level of quality of life was measured using Quality of Life Questionnaire (SF-36) in pre-test. Then, participants of the experimental group received group mindfulness-based stress reduction program and conscious yoga for 8 sessions. After completing the interventions, patients' quality of life level was measured again and data were analyzed using multivariate repeated measurement model. Results: Findings showed there is a significant difference between experimental and control groups in terms of the quality of life level and mindfulness-based stress reduction program significantly increases the quality of life in the participants of the experimental group. Conclusion: The result of this study suggests that mindfulness-based stress reduction program can be an appropriate therapeutic method for improving quality of life in patients with diabetes type 2.
