Q & A: What do you suggest for a timer?

So for a timer, I use the timer on the calm app and then set my “do not disturb” & airplane mode button so nothing will interrupt me but I TOTALLY understand if having the phone around is not ideal for you. I’d suggest in that case to set another timer in another room so it’s a distant sound going off. Once you start to get comfortable with meditating for a similar time every time you’ll know when 10 mins pass and start to come out of your meditation by habit. I know this has been the case for me when I was practicing for an hour a day (a few years back) and now I have this “inner” feeling when 10 mins has gone by because that is my routined time I practice. - Carolina
