The study results of self-regulation mechanisms of mental states and the development of regulatory abilities reveal stable regulatory functional complexes that perform a control function in ensuring the regulatory process in educational activities. The aim of the study is to reveal the effectiveness of mental states’ self-regulation methods of students with different levels of reflection. The study sample consists of 68 first-year students of the Institute of Psychology and Education of Kazan Federal University. The research was carried out in the context of a seminar and a lecture. Students with high efficiency of self-regulation during the educational activity mostly experience states of calmness, interest and concentration. Students with a high level of self-regulation and high reflexivity often resort to such methods of self-regulation as the actualization of positive memories; they use active and passive release and passive rest. Found that students with a high level of self-regulation and a low level of reflection are less inclined to analyze their own actions. As a way of self-regulation, they often use active relaxation and actualization of positive images and memories, while students with a low level of self-regulation use self-hypnosis. The described research results will find application in the learning process since the revealed typical methods and techniques of mental states self-regulation of students with different levels of reflexivity should be taken into account when selecting methods and technologies for organizing educational activities.
