A gift with a much needed message

I received this product from Michael Obrien for review.  With the way the world is right now, everyone is really busy and stressed out.  So Michael created the Pause, Breathe, Reflect t-shirt.  You can purchase one for yourself for $27.

This t-shirt serves as a much needed gentle reminder to all who see it with its simple message:  Pause, Breathe, Reflect.  This reminds you to be thoughtful and calm as you go about your day.  If you do this when things get tough, it will help you to see the strength and resilience that you have inside of you.  It's washed for every day softness and will quickly become one of your favorite shirts!  This super soft shirt is made with polyester recycled from plastic bottles (it uses an average of 6 bottles per shirt), TENCEL Modal made from renewable beech trees and organic cotton, all sourced from the U.S.  Compared to the average t-shirt, this one helps you to reduce your carbon footprint by saving water (saves an average of 145 gallons of water) and reducing waste.

But the message on the front of the shirt is not the only message.  "Who's in your peloton?" is printed on the back (a peloton is a group of cyclists in a ride or race).  This is a reminder that we can't do things on our own.  And there's a third message printed on the inside of the shirt.  It's a message of resilience, reminding us that even when we get knocked down, we still have the strength to get back up.  These are all messages that we all need to hear.

As a successful sales professional and marketing director, Michael often felt burdened by the same stress that we all feel every day.  While out training on his bike one day, he was struck head on by an SUV and nearly killed.  It was his recovery from this near death experience that was the catalyst to change his perspective, mindset and actions.  It put him on the path to create better tomorrows in both work and life, and helped him find his happiness and passion.
