Mindful Mynah - The tiny mindfulness bell

       Mac OS

• The tiny mindfulness bell for your Mac

"Perfect." - Leo Babauta, zenhabits.net


• Mindful Mynah plays a sound of your choosing, repeatedly, at an interval of your choosing.

That's all!

What you use the reminder for is up to you.

Some people get distracted easily, and want to be reminded to stay on task.

For others, distraction is not the problem. They want to be reminded to take regular breaks.

Some people just want a reminder to bring them back to the present moment:

"What are you doing right now? Is it still what you intended to be doing?"


• Simple, minimal interface

Select a sound, set the reminder interval, go. Mindful Mynah stays out of your way. On the Mac, the app lives in your menu bar. On iOS, the app can run in the background as you go about your day.

Mindful Mynah comes with a selection of reminder sounds, all kinds: sharp, soft, dry, resonant.

Some prefer a metallic sound that hangs in the air and creates a sense of stillness, like the church bell or Tibetan singing bowl.

Others like a drier, more organic sounding reminder, like handclap or knock.

Try them all out and see which ones work best for you, or select Random Sound for a surprise each time.


• Remind Me

You can set the reminder interval from one minute to two hours.

If you are using Mindful Mynah to remind yourself to take regular breaks, you might only want to hear a reminder once or twice every hour.

If your goal is to stay mindful of the present moment, or to stay on task, reminders once every few minutes might be needed, at least to begin with, or on days when you find it especially difficult to focus.

You may find that you need less frequent reminders as your mindfulness improves!


• Happy Customers
