Our Story: A Journey towards Mindful Living
I am fortunate that I get to write software. It's what I've wanted to do since I was ten years old. Still, it can be very stressfull at times.
Well into my career I discovered mindfulness meditation and it changed my life. My practice became an invaluable tool to help me reduce the stress of my workday. However, while heads-down writing code throughout the day, I often found it difficult to remember to pause and return to the present moment.
In 2015, I built Mindfulness Bell Menu Bar for myself to help me to remember to pause and breathe. I wanted to create a simple app that sat in the background and acted as an unobtrusive reminder to take mindful pauses throughout the day. I made it available to the world through the Mac App Store out of a desire to help others benefite from the practice of mindfulness as I had.
Over the years, this simple, yet profound concept has resonated with thousands. Today, my app is more than just a tool—it's a global community united by the desire for mindful living. It's a daily companion that punctuates routines all around the world with moments of clarity and peacefulness.
As it continues to grow, I remain committed to a core purpose: to help people experience the profound benefits of mindfulness in an increasingly chaotic world. Through the serene sound of a bell, I hope to inspire a moment of pause, a breath of relief, and a step towards a more mindful existence.
