If You Were Mindful For A Moment, You Would Never Buy This

I don’t know if these Moment Pebble people have created the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever seen, because I’ve been around a long time and have seen my share of things both stupid and otherwise and it’s hard to rank them all at this point. But what I do know is that they’ve absolutely given it one hell of a go.

As reported mental health issues are on the rise, the benefits of mindfulness are well documented – but finding time in your busy day to practice mindfulness is challenging for most. The solution? The Moment Pebble.

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 a short breathing exercise that helps you de-stress and re-energise before you continue with your day.

Listen. I don’t want to judge people or anything here, but if you’ve got 70 bucks to toss out on a tiny, rechargeable rock that needs a separately rechargeable base, what could you possibly have to be stressed about in this life? Aside from others finding out how dopey and easily swindled you are, of course. That’s just a given. One that could probably go a long way toward being alleviated by you not buying a $70 rechargeable glowing rock.

Somehow this thing has absolutely obliterated its funding goal, which makes my soul hurt. It hurts so much, in fact, that I think I may need to go take a quick walk and reset. Walks, by the way, are free. I know you know that, but apparently 1,129 people and counting need reminding.

  1. So when I was reading about this I kept seeing the price listed as either $70 or £60, but it didn’t dawn on me to do the Canadian conversion until now. And jesus, now it’s even worse. £60 = $102 Canadian. For a rock.
