Those who practice mindfulness know the mental and physical advantages it can present daily. However, it can be easy to forget to practice mindfulness if you have a busy home life or an overwhelming job.
For those struggling to make time for mindfulness, we can provide a simple solution; mindfulness jewelry. But what exactly is mindfulness jewelry, and how does it work? Here at MIMOSA Handcrafted, we’re answering those questions and providing some recommendations for mindfulness jewelry if you need a helpful and beautiful reminder throughout your day.
What are Mindfulness and Mindfulness Jewelry?
Mindfulness is a mental state of being conscious or aware of the present moment and recognizing and accepting one’s emotions, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Those who practice mindfulness have been able to reduce stress, become more focused, and better handle stressful or challenging situations in their life.
Some people may forget or are too busy to practice mindfulness. The purpose of mindfulness jewelry is to remind wearers to take a moment to focus their attention on mindfulness and practice it throughout their day.
The Benefits of Mindfulness Jewelry
There are a couple of benefits to wearing mindfulness jewelry. The first is the constant reminder to practice mindfulness. Having a necklace, bracelet, or earrings on your person at all times will remind you to take some time out of your day to center yourself and yield those positive outcomes from being in the moment.
Some people experience direct advantages when wearing mindfulness jewelry, including stress and anxiety reduction and increased awareness and gratitude for the people they interact with and their environment. Less stress and heightened awareness can help you be more productive at work, build better relationships with colleagues and loved ones, and overcome difficult challenges at home or work.
Different Types of Mindfulness Jewelry
Now that you know what mindfulness jewelry does and its benefits, it is time to look at the different types of mindfulness jewelry. You can wear bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings to help center yourself and give you that daily reminder to practice mindfulness.

Bracelets are one the best pieces of mindfulness jewelry because a simple touch on your wrist can be the only reminder you need to practice mindfulness. Try wearing a bracelet with an encouraging or inspiring quote or phrase to help you be in the moment and acknowledge your feelings and thoughts.
Rings make great mindfulness jewelry for the same reason bracelets do: easy visibility and the power of touching them as a reminder to practice. You’ll want to get a ring that best reminds you to practice mindfulness and connects you to your mind and body.
Although you cannot easily see a necklace like a ring or a cuff, necklaces still make an excellent piece of mindfulness jewelry. They can still be touched like a ring or a cuff to help center yourself, and necklaces are the only piece of mindfulness jewelry that will be close to your heart.
Much like necklaces, you won’t be able to see your earrings unless you stand in front of a mirror. But if you tend to play with your ears when you are nervous or start fidgeting, you’ll get a pleasant surprise and reminder when you touch your piece of mindfulness jewelry.

Choosing the Right Mindfulness Jewelry for You
When selecting a piece of mindfulness jewelry, you must consider personal preference and purpose. What is the intention of your mindfulness jewelry? Are you trying to reduce stress or gain increased awareness? What piece will help you best achieve that?
When it comes to personal preference, ask yourself what fits you best and how will it help you practice mindfulness better? Do you need more of that visual reminder, or do you prefer touching your mindfulness jewelry to ground you and give you that encouragement to practice? Whatever mindfulness jewelry you pick out must go hand in hand with your intention and personality.
