Made to enhance your meditation and mindfulness practices, the Orijin Thinking Egg was designed as a way to combat anxiety, stress, and distraction in a highly attractive compact thinking stone shaped like an egg.

What’s the purpose of a thinking egg?
Think of a thinking egg as something to aid you, a reminder, in living a more simple life, and providing an easy, attractive, and beautiful way to do so. If you’re familiar with Buddhism and the practices of meditation and mindfulness, then you’ll be aware of how difficult it can be to stay grounded and truly live in the moment. The weight of the thinking egg, and its texture is a perfect way to focus and provides a meditative object for freeing the mind of thought and focusing more on what’s important to you.
design & materials
What I love about the thinking egg is the wide variety of materials it’s available in, all delicately chosen to reflect their various properties. Ranging from a metal egg (composed of copper and zinc, Brass), in a gold color, along with wood (Bamboo) and a range of stones (Tiger Eye, Lava, Jade, etc..) the Orijin thinking egg is expertly designed with materials for everyone’s specific preferences.
The thinking egg is a great compact size, easy to conceal, and has a good range of weight to them. The only issue I had was its shape. With being egg-shaped it can be a little uncomfortable and noticeable in a front or back pocket but this does depend on the type of pants you’re wearing (I wouldn’t recommend skinny jeans).
