just started doing timed zazen meditations to strengthen my stamina for unfocused focus. its always been hard for me to stay in an out-of-body thought function, keeping my mind distant from my physical self for extended amounts of time. setting an alarm for any amount of time in the future is good in that respect as it trains the mind to stop worrying about how long ive been sitting for so it may relax and absorb, as the alarm will come when it needs to.
hoping to build up to somewhere near an hour of straight meditation by the end of the summer.
