It’s easy done. Losing track of time when you meditate is almost certainly part of the meditative experience. But there are times when you need to stop meditating and come back to the real world. Which is where meditation timers UK or otherwise come into their own.
Sure, you could set the countdown timer on your mobile phone. But the chances are that you’ve switched your phone to silent so that you’re not interrupted during your meditation, so there’s always the worry that the timer will merely flash rather than bleep and that you’ll be so deep in your meditation that you don’t notice it.
Which is where a dedicated meditation timer comes into its own.
You can set the duration of your meditation session and just begin to meditate, knowing that your faithful electronic meditation timer will do it’s job perfectly and alert you peacefully but insistently when it’s time to stop meditating and do whatever is due to happen next in your life.
Another option is to use a purpose made meditation MP3 track. This will help you to achieve a deep meditative state and, at the end of the track, you’ll be brought back to a state of alertness.
Which, as is often the case in these things, means it’s your choice. Order a meditation timer in the UK or wherever you are in the world or get hold of a guided meditation MP3 to control the amount of time you spend meditating.
