"Thank you for knowing at, especially at this time of year, I NEEDED to pause. It has brought forth the moment to reflect, feel my blessings… and be thankful. Timely for sure."
"This is just a note to tell you that my pause bracelet has changed my life!! My husband left me, and I was looking for ways to heal, when I saw a small ad for your pause bracelet. I thought it was a great idea, and I knew that pausing periodically in my day might be a way to deal with my sadness and sense of loss. So……..I bought one. To my delight and surprise, it has been the perfect thing to help me move forward. Every day I change the mantra that I use when it gently pulses to remind me to pause. I have used several mantras: I forgive Tom, and I forgive myself; Live in the light; Joy abounds; Be happy; etc. It has helped me immeasurably, and I will continue to wear it as I move through the many changes that this separation is bringing to my world. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Oh, and bless you, too! Your little pulsing pauser could change the whole world if we all wore one, expressing gratitude for one small thing each time it reminded us to pause."
"I absolutely LOVE this product. I do a daily Course in Miracles lesson that has to be remembered and repeated throughout the day and I finally have a tool that I can use to remind me. It is changing my life!
….Everyone should have one of these. It can have a HUGE impact on your life! "
"Got a bracelet for my 11 year old daughter when I got my own. AMAZING to see how quickly kids "get it." When her reminder goes, she… closes her eyes and pauses what ever she is doing. AND get this: she's got the whole family to follow her lead!"
"I love my Meaning to pause bracelet!! My Mom and I live far apart, we both have one and have synchronized them together so that when mine reminds me to pause so does my Mom's. Each time it signals me i think of her. xoxox this is a great gift for anyone near or far!"
"I received my bracelet, not sure if it would really help, I put it on. It feels so comforting to wear it. This bracelet pauses me during my day and helps me to focus on all the blessing God has placed in my life, the wonderful people who have been so helpful, and all the things I have to be grateful for. I thank you for this inspiring and beautiful tool!!"
"My pause bracelet has helped me slow down, breathe and not worry about things that are not going to happen. My worries went down from a 10 to a 3 and my breathing tricks helped me feel good in everything."

"The pace of life seems to increase day by day, we have technology that has massively increased the pressures on us and the amount of information that is thrown at us on a daily basis. The pressure is so intense for many of us that we don’t have a few minutes to relax. So much so that every available minute needs to be utilized. A 100 meter sprinter cannot maintain his frantic pace indefinitely, if he attempted to he would eventually collapse. In the same way if we continue to drive ourselves harder and faster we will essentially suffer the consequences. We all ‘mean to pause’ and take a break and relax. This is why I was so excited by the Meaning to Pause bracelet - a simple, regular reminder to stop and have a break or even just to take a deep breath. We shouldn’t need reminding, as we shouldn’t need an alarm clock, however the way that many of us conduct our lives this is a very welcome and needed reminder. I am very grateful for the ‘Meaning to Pause’ bracelet to remind me to stop every 90 minutes!"
Neil Shah, Director, The Stress Management Society
“This is such a neat and productive idea. Time goes so fast and much of what I wanted to do is forgotten unless I do it immediately - which I can't always do. There is something about having this bracelet remind me so I stop what I am doing and do the important thing. I always make time to pray when I'm in bed but now I can do it every 90 min. all day. Wish I had thought of this idea. Hope your new year is especially blessed.”
“I received my bracelet and have been wearing it ever since! This is absolutely perfect for the “Timer Process” that I teach! The bracelet looks great and works perfect! When it goes off – I look around to find what I can appreciate at that very moment. I am loving the mini-appreciation breaks I am taking every 90 minutes! Thanks for a great product!”
“Thanks to my Pause bracelet...I am having one of the most STRESS-FREE holidays! It absolutely amazes me the times that it goes off as they are always when I need the reminder the most.”
"It is kicking up my “A Course in Miracles” practice to a much higher level. It's wonderful to truly remember my workbook lessons every hour."
“From the moment I activated the Pause, my awareness of the present moment and my breathing has been heightened. I am grateful to you both for thinking of a way to bring people back to the moment. I love my new bracelet, and will definitely be ordering more and recommending them to my friends and family. So, pause and take a bow, because I'm giving you a standing ovation! ”
“After wearing and using the bracelet now for almost 2 weeks, I can categorically state it is a big hit! I am so busy and I admit my prayer life has dwindled to a brief last minute exhaustion prayer at bed and a quick one at each meal followed by me playing catch up on “Sunday at church. Since wearing it, it has definitely forced me to “Pause” and take a moment to reflect on the many blessings God has bestowed on us as a family as well as my business. I have made it a habit of every time it vibrates, I state the: “Prayer of Jabez” It really does settle me down and reflect!! My wife and daughter love theirs also! Thanks again and may God Bless you mightily in this important endeavor!”
“Meaning to Pause is set to create a revolution in consciousness. I personally wear a Meaning to Pause bracelet, and I notice a huge difference in the quality of my life and my relationships. I highly recommend Meaning to Pause! The main purpose of my show is to help highlight and promote people who are doing work that has the potential to transform the world, and I think that what you are doing can absolutely be that transformative.”

“I use my meaning to pause bracelet daily. . .which is a good thing, since I don't have an easy time practicing what I preach.”
Terry Hershey - Author of "The Power of Pause Becoming More by Doing Less"
"For anyone else who's not tried the meaning to pause bracelets yet, they are beautiful and they work!"
Suzie Price of "Priceless Professional Development"
“I got the Meaning to Pause bracelet in December as a Christmas present to myself and it has changed my life in dramatic ways - I use it to remember my daily spiritual lesson in the Course in Miracles and am now slowly becoming a more centered joyful and loving person. This bracelet reminds me to think good productive thoughts every 90 minutes and to dream my dreams and what a difference it makes to get out of your normal thought patterns and reach for the sky!”
“I have one also...and I love it...it really has allowed to stop and take time for myself...and I love what I learned about it tonight on my radio show...how they can be globally synced or used as a group...or prayer groups...I think I am going to get one for my Best Friend for her birthday...we don't get to see each other much anymore due to the busyness of out lives...this may be a way that we will know that we are still praying for one another.”

"I got a message through LinkedIn about the Meaning To Pause Bracelet and had to check it out. I have been looking for years for a way to remind myself to stop during the day to reflect and be present. This bracelet seemed like the answer. I immediately ordered one and it got here very quickly. From the moment I opened the package it was obvious that this bracelet was made with love. The first couple of days I wore it I realized how asleep I am most of the time as I was woken up from my stupor by this gentle vibration. The bracelet is also beautiful – awareness, beauty and love – what else can you ask for?"
“I’m a true believer already, and wanted you to know how impressed I am. This is one of the best tools for coming to presence that I know of. Thank you so much for inventing it!”
Sarah Susanka - Author of "The Not So Big Life"
“I think what meaning to pause has created is an opportunity to reconnect with yourself by taking a moment to pause. I think we lose that. We are always wishing away our time thinking about the next day, upcoming vacation, birthday, etc., that we aren’t enjoying the present moment. It helps to connect us to the HERE and NOW…I love my bracelet. I use it to pray for our troops and their families. I cannot imagine being so far away from home and family. I pray that they can come home safely and soon.”
“This personal reminder has been so helpful. It’s a great feeling! It is a rest I use to center myself in the moment…..to live in the now and trust in the future. I ask myself if I could be doing more. It is great to take mini pauses to allow me to adjust my attitude and match my actions to my purpose.”
“From the moment I put the Pause bracelet on I felt a difference. Every day we go about our tasks, at work and home, always in a hurry, many times on a deadline or within a time frame. Our mind is always focused on tasks. But the Pause changed my outlook. When the alert goes off I have a personal choice. Whether it is a personal goal such as prayer or meditation or special person or just to PAUSE, to put my thoughts in check and get on the path that is really important to me. When I take the Pause off, I feel something is missing.”
“My pauses yesterday were very meaningful and insightful. It is serving as a meaningful tool in my days. Even if I really don't know what to do with my pause, I take 10 deep breaths. I am finding it to be very cleansing when my mind gets filled with clutter that normally creates anxiety for me. The pause acts as a buffer in between all the noise in my day. I am enjoying my pauses so much and I am thankful that I have this in my life now.”
“I really love the bracelet. I feel empowered to be a good person. It’s a subtle reminder to be in a good mood, to be nice to people, to say thanks for all that I have and to enjoy being alive. I really like the change in mindset it provides me. Wearing the bracelet helps me to choose to be happy, thankful, aware, kind, positive and hopeful! I feel a sense of relief when my pauses go off. This is truly groundbreaking!”
“Pause is something that goes beyond logic and is an experience for a way of life opposed to just a product. Almost instantly upon using Pause, I found myself taking a lot more time throughout the day to enjoy the moment and appreciate those people and environment that I was in. By having a simple reminder to take step back and realize you are living in the moment, you can’t help but smile and appreciate how grateful and fortunate we really are to have the resources and freedom available to us and that our actions can influence others. This positive appreciation is easily passed to those around you creating an even greater environment.”
“It is a great experience to wear my pause bracelet. At first, I had to force myself to stop and pause, but I learned that I am capable to slow down, breath, think and pray in the middle of my day, while driving, cooking, running around…just when you think there's just no time to do any of that. I realized this is something we all MUST do, and wearing the pause bracelet will remind everyone of the important things in life. Sadly, pausing is not something we remember to do often enough. The bracelet solves the problem! I end every day knowing that I use my pauses well…I feel very fulfilled.”
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.- Charles Kingsley
