What is the Online Meditation Timer?
The Online Meditation Timer is a free online tool to help you meditate. It is similar to an online alarm or timer, but the Online Meditation Timer features have been specially developed with meditation in mind. These include relaxing music and customizable sounds with a repeating interval option, the ability to set preparation time for your session, and a simple, easy-to-use interface. Forget fiddling with your phone timer. The Online Meditation Timer makes timing your meditation sessions a pleasure.
Why Should I Use the Online Meditation Timer?
If you've tried to use other alarms and timers during your meditation practice, either online, on your phone, or using other equipment, you'll be familiar with the frustration that each method can cause. With the Online Meditation Timer, you just set it and start meditating – no fuss, just a simple, versatile tool that will improve your meditation practice.
How Do I Use the Online Meditation Timer?
It's easy! Above the timer itself, you'll see four tabs: Preparation, Meditation, Interval, and Sound. First, in the "Meditation" tab, use the arrows above and below the timer to set your meditation session duration. To set the preparation time, switch to the "Preparation" tab and set the time using the arrows. If you would like a sound to repeat at intervals during your session, set this in the "Interval" tab. By default, the sound is a chiming bell – you can change this in the "Sound" tab. Now you're ready to go! Hit the "Start the Timer" button to begin your meditation session.
