General instructions for first time Insight Timer app users
The Insight Timer phone app is an incredible FREE resource for meditation, but it can be overwhelming for first time users. I hope that this guide provides you with some guidance.
- Download the free Insight Timer app on your phone or tablet, then create an account.
- From the Home Screen, click the “Meditation” button (headphones image) on the bottom menu bar.
- Click the newly displayed “Meditation” button (hands in Anjali mudra/prayer), then click the type of meditation you’re interested in. Not sure? I recommend clicking ‘Stress” or “Mindfulness”.
- A list of guided meditations will be displayed for you to choose. However, I recommend first clicking the “Length” button on the top menu bar then clicking the “Sort” button on that same menu bar and click ”Highest Rated” to further narrow down your choices.
- Found a meditation that you really enjoy? Before exiting from the meditation, bookmark the meditation by clicking the bookmark icon at the top right of your screen. Then, when you’re ready to meditate again, click the bookmark tab on your home screen to access ALL of your bookmarked meditations. (If you forget to do this, you can access your "Activity" history from your "Profile" page.)
Personalize your app: From the Home Screen, click the “Profile” button on the bottom menu bar. Click the wheel in the top menu bar to access “My Setting’ and set your app up. Do you want a daily reminder? What opening screen would you like your app to open with?
- From the Home Screen, click the “Timer” button on the bottom menu bar.
- For “Duration”, set the amount of time that you want to meditate and select an ending bell. If you don’t want to set a limit, click “no limit” for the “Duration”.
- Click the 3 vertical dots at the bottom right of the screen and click “Save as a preset”.
