What are Mindfulness Bells?

Mindfulness bells are simply bells that ring at a regular interval (in this case every 20 minutes). The bells are there to remind you to be present in the moment and take a second to appreciate your life.

How to Use Mindfulness Bells

Every time you hear the bell, I encourage you to take a minute or so to be mindful of the present moment. Notice your environment. Is there a lot of sound? What is on the walls around you? What does it smell like?

Now, pay attention to your body. Are you stressed? Is there a certain part of your body that is carrying tension? How is your posture?

Is your mind overwhelmed? Are your thoughts racing? Do you need a break?

The goal is simply to take a moment to analyze what you are doing and how you are feeling in the present moment.

Once you’ve taken a moment of mindfulness, it’s always a good idea to take a deep breath into your stomach.

When to Listen to Mindfulness Bells?

All the time! You can play this video while you are at you computer working, cooking dinner, washing your car, etc. You can play from your computer, you phone, or even over your speakers- whatever is easiest for you!

The mindfulness bells are simply meant to remind you to take a break from whatever you are doing to take a deep breath and enjoy it! There is joy to be found in any task or any situation; it all depends on perspective :)

To listen for more than 2 hours, simply watch via the playlist (link below) and click “repeat playlist”
