A visual reminder to take a break during the day and carve out 15 minutes for what truly counts.

That isn’t very long, and that’s the point: it’s longer than we often give to so many of the things we ostensibly think of as so important – like properly listening to a partner, rationally analyzing our career ambitions, or playing in a concentrated way with a child.
This attractive glass timer is created by Polite for The School of Life, a London collective devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture.
