Designed to gently time your meditation, yoga or other mindfulness practice. A Tibetan bowl chime plays at the beginning of the duration you choose, a second bell at the half way point and three chimes at the end to indicate your session is over. These are perfect for those who are already comfortable with guided meditation and want to start to learn how to meditate on their own, or as a supplement to a guide.
Even if you never get to the point of being able to direct each session yourself, these are a great tool to have in your back pocket for when your mind starts to wander or you just need a gentle reminder to return to your breath. Many people use these in conjunction with guided practices while they are learning, then transition to using them on their own after they have developed a level of confidence in their ability to remain focused without the guidance of a voice.
Just 20 minutes of meditation a day can be enough to see changes in your brain and help you be more productive, creative and happy. No wonder so many successful people from billionaire Ray Dalio to Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey swear by daily meditation! These meditation timers make it easy to start a new habit of meditating every day. Plus, when the timer goes off you can celebrate completing your daily meditation and feel those little dopamine hits of accomplishment!
