Simple tools for mindfulness

• Mindfulness at the Sound of a Bell

A mindfulness bell is a simple yet powerful tool used to bring your attention back to the present moment. Traditionally, it emits a gentle sound at predetermined intervals to remind you to pause, breathe, and center yourself amidst daily activities. This ancient practice, now adapted for modern life, can serve multiple purposes, helping to reduce stress, enhance focus and strengthen attention.

• Navigating the Digital Age

In an era where apps and devices increasingly monopolize our attention, it’s easy for our time to be stolen by constant distractions. Mindful Mynah stands as a guardian of your time, helping you reclaim moments of peace and presence from the relentless pull of digital engagement.

• Strengthen Your Attention

Just as a muscle grows stronger with regular exercise, your ability to focus intensifies with practice. Mindful Mynah helps train your attention muscle by gently nudging you back to the now, helping you stay aware and focused throughout the day.

• Stay Present, Stay Mindful

Mindful Mynah transforms this age-old concept into a modern desktop companion. Set it once and let the serenity settle in — operating quietly from your menu bar, ensuring your flow isn’t disrupted. Use Mindful Mynah to remind yourself to take regular breaks or adjust your posture.


- Choose from a selection of reminder sounds — like a soft ping, a calming chime, or the resonant Tibetan singing bowl. Each sound is designed to gently nudge you back to the present moment.

- Flexible Timing: Set reminders to sound at regularly spaced intervals, or use fuzzy reminders to hear your chosen sound at unpredictable intervals.

- Discreet Interface: Mindful Mynah lives in your menu bar to help keep you on track without cluttering your workspace.

- Widgets: Add a visual reminder to your desktop with the Reminder Phrase widget, and start and stop reminders with a single click using the Interactive widget. The background color of each widget is customizable, to fit your workspace.

- Shortcuts: Mindful Mynah now includes a suite of Shortcuts to control and configure the app. Using the Shortcuts app, Mindful Mynah may be incorporated into your own custom workflows.

simple, clear, reliable

it does everything i want for chimes throughout the day; the reminder sound selection is good; i would give it a fifth star if it supported custom sounds

edit: can version 3 have the mute times back

Nice Sound Variety and Ability to Send Random Times

I like the selection of different types of sounds - longer and shorter tones for different instruments and various noises. The Do Not Disturb worked fine for me and I love the ability to set the reminder at X random times per hour rather than at specific fixed times.

What's not to love?

I love this simple and well-designed app. Does what it needs to with a little personality to boot. (Cute bird.)
