Meditation Timers

April 2, 2008 · Print This Article

Using a meditation timer can come in real handy when you’re trying to meditate. Concentrating is hard enough without having to worry about how much time has passed while you were meditating. Especially because you’ll usually experience a little bit of time distortion while you meditate–10 minutes can feel like and hour and vice versa.

A meditation timer allows you to keep yourself focused on your meditation, and not on how much time is passed or whether or not you’re going to be late for work.

It features a countdown timer that’s great for meditation practice. The chime it makes is a lot less disturbing than say, an egg timer. The chime starts very softly and works its way up to a louder chime until you turn it off.

    Using the timers is ideal when you only have a half hour or ten minutes in your schedule. It would be an easy way to take a day time break. Although not having to worry about how much time would be preferred. For example at the end of the day while in bed meditating to prepare the body for sleep you wouldn't want to use a timer.
