I’m a meditation geek and whenever I can find a new app or tool to include in my practice, I like to try it out. The Zen Alarm Clock by Now & Zen is my newest mediation tool and so far I’m loving it. You can use it as an alarm clock, interval timer, countdown timer, and a meditation timer. I’m currently using it mostly as an alarm clock.
I’ve tried various alarms in the past to help wake me up more naturally. The app/device was either to loud or to obnoxious to keep me using it for more than one or two nights. The nice thing about this alarm is the chime that it gives off when it’s time to wake up. It gradually wakes you up with a metal chime and it gets louder every ten minutes until you are fully awake and ready to start your day in a more natural manner.
The first time I used it as an alarm clock, I thought the low setting was too low and jumped straight into the higher volume tone. Big mistake. It woke me up alright, but it certainly wasn’t gradual. It read the instruction manual on how to adjust the chime and the volume, and the next morning, I woke up in a much better mood.
The digital zen alarm clock is also the perfect chime for anyone that likes to take their meditation routine on the road with them. I like it because it doesn’t require any cables to power up (batteries not included), and it’s small enough to fit in my backpack for when I feel like taking my meditation to a new spot.
The Zen Alarm Clock comes in ten different styles (including two different sizes) and is the perfect gift for the meditating geek in your family.
