Free Software & Website to Help You Remember to Breath, Stretch or Take a Quick Break

bell_hongKongA friend told me about this little mindfulness program and website that I have used for the last 5 hours and found very useful. Time to let you know about it.

You can set it to ring at any time interval, once an hour, every 15 minutes or even at random times. I was excited to hear about it since I spend a lot of time on my laptop (probably too much time), I’m sure you can tell.

Anyway, it is a beautiful sound and every time I hear it I stop my typing, and take a deep breath and try to continue to deep breath, then it rings again and to my surprise I find that I had stopped deep breathing, so I stop what I’m doing and take another deep breath. You can use it as a reminder to breath, stretch, blink, look outside the window, drink water, etc..

If you install the software you can replace the sound file with any sound you like. However, the supplied bell sound is very nice. This bell reminder can remind you, as many times as you need to be reminded, to bring yourself back to your true home.

PS. If for some reason the link is not working contact me, I downloaded and saved the software on my computer and can send it to you. I scanned the software with Norton it says it’s safe, so is the website (as of 4/25/2010).
