Founded in July, 2008 Meaning to Pause® is owned by its creators, Krizia Irish and Cindy Graham. The company helps people to reframe their thoughts throughout the day using a charming bracelet with private reminder technology (Patent #: U.S. D627,675 - issued November 2010).
Irish and Graham became close friends while working together in business sales for 15+ years. After rushing through their highly chaotic days and many distractions, the two 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.
