Although it is a bit pricey for a simple alarm clock, I’ll admit I couldn’t find one that was this simple yet still cute and stylish anywhere else..plus I really support the mission of this company! I haven’t used the meditation timer yet but I love using the alarm clock. Its a nice sound and low volume is perfect to keep right next to your bed. It’s helped me stay off my phone for at least 30 minutes, sometimes longer in the mornings which I’ve never been able to do before. So glad I found this!
I love this alarm clock. Initially what drew me to the product was the meditation timer feature, and while I still plan to use it, I haven't had a moment to truly settle in with my routine. But, I *have* used the alarm clock feature religiously. For the first time since owning a smartphone, I can now say I'm phone free in the bedroom! I also tend to sleep in different rooms in the house, and I can easily bring the clock with me wherever I decide to rest my head on any given night while leaving my phone live in its charging drawer still. As well, the low volume setting and peaceful chime make me not hate mornings as much (which is HUGE for me - I'm a night owl, not an early bird). Thank you to L.R. & team!
Exactly What I Needed
I needed a timer to use in my bedroom to practice breathing morning and evening, and part of my practice was not using screens in my bedroom. All the timers I looked at were kitchen timers with extremely loud/startling beeps. This was well worth the price to get screens out of my room and not shock myself when my breathing sessions were over. It came with easy to figure out instructions and fits very nicely on my nightstand, not taking up too much room. Excellent design experience overall!
For my purposes - cutting the digital cord that was really killing my sleep quality and simultaneously building a daily yoga & meditation practice - this little device is working like a charm. The alarm emits a pretty bell chime, and a simple timer function keeps my postures and meditation on track. Like many people, I developed a habit of keeping my smartphone in the bedroom. I used it as an alarm clock, but I was helpless against its other insidious charms - constant work email reading, news scrolling and calendar managing turned me into a bleary-eyed mess who traded adequate sleep hours for...what? With this investment, I have been able to banish my phone to the kitchen while I sleep, dream and meditate and still make it on time to work, where I am sharper and more productive. Win, win, win. I also bought one for my mother, who like many in her generation is totally transfixed by her smartphone and suffers poor sleep quality as a result. Fingers crossed.
More peace in my life!!!!
I love this clock! Simple design, big results. We have two. One is in my son's room and one in mine. This little clock has made a big difference in my life. Since putting away the screens in my room I have read multiple books. I do not wake up and become immediately stressed out because I look at my calendar and start checking emails for work. Instead, I turn off the clock, turn on the light and read a book. My mornings are now peaceful and calm rather than harried and stressed. Don't believe me? Buy one and try it for yourself. You will see results immediately. I have not used the meditation timer, but I will soon! I also love the chime sound. Thank you!
