Reclaim Your Peace of Mind with Mindful Nighttime Phone Use
A meditation timer and alarm clock that's not connected to the internet.
The Awake Mindfulness Clock
Nighttime & early morning smartphone use undermines everything good you cultivate with your meditation practice
Do you use a smartphone to facilitate meditation?
Do you use a smartphone in bed?
I used this popular app for years – until I couldn't stand being connected anymore
Why Establish Healthy Boundaries with Your Smartphone?
A few not-so-fun-phone facts:
If you're uncomfortable with your smartphone use, I want to help you.
My name is L.R. and my phone was overly-integrated into my life.
I finally figured out a way to help myself:
I stopped bringing my phone into my bedroom at night.
My problem showed up in two clear ways
1. My phone was my alarm clock so it was in my hand every morning when I woke up.
My thumb would almost automatically press a social media button. A half-hour or more might pass and I would still be lying there.
Eventually I would get up to meditate, but a minor feeling of guilt crept into my consciousness. That guilty feeling accumulated day after day after day, month after month.
My life was passing me by.
2. My meditation app became a social media app
One morning I opened my eyes after my 20 minute timer rang and found that my meditation app was trying to connect me with someone who had "finished meditating nearby."
A new feature.
As much as I like to connect with like-minded people, I'm not trying to do so the second I come out of meditation. Seeing email or text or other notifications isn't what I'm looking for either.
Also, sometimes my foot falls asleep while sitting crosslegged. While I wait out the pins and needles...
...I happen to have my phone in my hand, fresh from closing my timer. Hello (again) Instagram, goodbye ten minutes (or twenty, or thirty...).

I wasn't about to give up my phone: I appreciate and enjoy many of the functions it serves in my everyday life.
But when I started leaving it outside my bedroom every night, my life got much better.
"Why don't you just put your phone on airplane mode?"
I tried that and it didn't work for me. Using that tactic relied on willpower and the forces drawing me to my phone were deeper than that. It's closer to addiction than choice, and part of the definition of addiction is doing something even if you don't want to do it.
If my phone was within arm's reach, it would end up in my hand. And.....it's pretty easy to turn airplane mode off.
For me, the key was to get my phone out of my bedroom. To do that, I knew I needed a very simple tool: a meditation timer/alarm clock.
Only one existed! And it cost over $100.
I bit the bullet and bought it.
I started using it. Every night I charged my phone in another room.
It's difficult to overstate how much better my life got.
How taking a nightly break from my phone made my life better immediately and immeasurably
Empowered by the contentment that came from a new relationship with my phone, I created the tool I wanted that didn't exist
