BRINGING MINDFUL MOMENTS TO BUSY LIVES
The Moment Pebble enables you to take 30 second micro moments of mindfulness – any time, anywhere. With a gentle light that beats from within, it guides you through short breathing exercises that help you de-stress and re-energise before you continue with your day.
WHY IT WORKS
Unchecked, stress can build up during your day. But if you take moments to interrupt the “autopilot” state of your mind, you give yourself an opportunity to ‘reset’ and remove a large amount of stress from your day.
HOW TO USE THE PEBBLE:
JUST A MOMENT...
The benefits of mindfulness are well documented – but finding time in your busy day to practice mindfulness is challenging for most. We aim to change this with the Moment Pebble.
Alex experienced first hand the cost of not taking a moment for himself. He went to great lengths to understand the psychology behind it and prevent others suffering the same experience. With the Moment Pebble we hope to ensure other people don’t get to the point he got to.
We’re on a mission to make mindfulness quick, easy and accessible for everyone – from complete mindfulness newbies, to experienced meditators.
Please join the Moment Movement by showing your support and help us prove that it's OK, in fact it's beneficial, to take frequent mind breaks.

"..such a simplistic & powerful idea." - Paul & Deb, UK Health Radio
Unlike most other modern mindfulness aids, the Moment Pebble doesn't rely on an app. It's not connected to your phone, meaning you can stay in the moment – undisturbed by calls and messages.
- A physical dedicated reminder to give your mind valuable breaks
- An external focus point to get you out of your busy mind
- Its 30 second light sequence guides you through a short calming breathing exercise
- Un-synced to your phone allowing you to stay focused and in the moment
- Fits in your palm and is completely wireless so you can always carry it with you
- Simple tactile controls (Up = on, down = off)
When you buy the Moment Pebble you also receive:
- The Moment Pebble (of course!)
- The wireless charging stone
- A Moment Book (30 curated moment scripts)
- You also gain access to the Moment Community, a curated group containing the Moment Pebble team, our Doctors and an increasing network of wellness experts, as well as all other Moment Pebble owners. The intention for the community is to provide a place where people can share their experiences as well as find support. Within the community you will have access to exclusive content, events, and expert feedback on any questions you may have.
- And finally, you will also have access to specifically designed 'Getting to know your Pebble' support materials. This is to help to get you into the groove of taking short mindful moments throughout your day.

OUR STORY & THE MOMENT MOVEMENT:
Alex and Charlie explain their motivations behind creating the Moment Pebble.
We (Alex and Charlie) met working at a fast paced digital agency in the early 2010’s. Discovering a shared appreciation of mindfulness, we recognised how giving our busy brains a mindful break created space for innovation and motivation. But despite all our best intentions, both of us would continually fall out of our mindfulness practice. Which led us to an idea...
What if we had a gentle prompt? Something physical that reminded us to take a break? A little nudge to take a moment for ourselves?
And so the Moment Pebble was born.
Our passion is developing products that help bring mindful moments to busy lives – making them accessible to everyone, everywhere. The Moment Pebble is the first step.

Risks and challenges
We have kept the form and function as simple as possible and have worked with experienced product designers at Central Research Laboratory, supported by EU and Brunel University to ensure supply chain and design processes are streamlined.
We have already signed agreements with key suppliers and manufacturers, and our prototype has been finalised. We have the required expertise when it comes to medical and psychological advice with two doctors (a psychologist and consultant physician who has vast experience working with patents using Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programmes) on our advisory board. We are working closely with them throughout the development of the Moment Pebble.
All of this, along with our partnerships with experienced crowdfunding and fulfilment experts, leaves little room for error and ensures a reliable next 'production for manufacture' phase, to get Moment Pebbles into the hands of people who need them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
