Musing from the owner of Grow and Make: Will Johnston
I’ve had a twice daily meditation practice for some time. I found that after using guided meditation apps, that I got to a point where I wanted to try not using a guided meditation, but instead practice mindfulness with a simple occasional reminder to return to the meditation. I found a great free app called Pocket Meditation Timer. It can be configured to set a mindfulness tone ever so often (I do every three minutes with a gong sound). It also has a beginning chime that I set for intention and a closing chime for the ending length of time (I do 30 minutes). I’ve found having this to be a great way to move from guided meditation to non-guided.
