ALAMO, Calif., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- New technology in the form of a functional bracelet (patent pending) prompts the wearer to pause several times during the day allowing the individual to give meaning to their thoughts and actions.

"I felt the need to create something that would give me a nudge throughout the day, because even with the best intentions I recognized the lack of meaning in my chaotic daily schedule," said Cindy Graham, meaning to pause® Founder.  

This charming yet simple bracelet provides a private, gentle vibration every 90 minutes, prompting the wearer to take some sort of action. The core function of the bracelet is to "pause" from whatever you are doing and reframe your thoughts. While there are endless ways to decide how someone will use their pauses throughout the day, the creators say their vision is to help people find meaningful reflection through awareness.

"When we are consumed in the busyness of our daily lives, we lose the opportunity to connect with what really matters in our lives," said Krizia Irish, meaning to pause® President.

The concept of a bracelet works. According to Wikipedia, over 70 million Lance Armstrong bracelets have been sold to date. People want to connect themselves to something important daily; they want to stay focused on the priorities in their lives and awakened to the present moment.

We know people will benefit from wearing this bracelet. Gandhi said it best, "Be the change that you want to see in the world." With a meaning to pause® bracelet, that change can start with every individual who commits to meaningful pauses in their day.

"Have YOU been meaning to pause?"

About meaning to pause®

meaning to pause® is privately owned by its inventors, Cindy Graham and Krizia Irish. The company helps people to create meaningful moments in their busy days by using a bracelet with private reminder technology (patent pending).  Graham and Irish became close friends while working together in sales for many years. After rushing through their highly chaotic days and many distractions, they agreed that something was needed in order to refocus on the priorities in their lives. After several failed attempts to create visual reminders to pause throughout the day, they recognized that they required gentle prompting to stop, pause and refocus. The meaning to pause® bracelet fills the requirement perfectly. Its gentle vibration is a private but deliberate reminder that helps wearers redirect their thoughts on what is important to them. Thoughtful and meaningful actions can be anything; prayer, meditation, mindfulness of the present, celebrating their purpose, being grateful or forgiving. At the end of the day, the wearer will have lived their best and most purposeful day by giving meaning to the pauses.
