Siri Shortcuts for Lotus Bud Meditation Timer

You can now create shortcuts to run in the Shortcuts app on iOS 12.
I've made a couple to get you started.

Lotus Bud: Meditation START 🧘‍♀️

Lotus Bud: Meditation FINISH 🙏

The start shortcut makes sure volume is on (also check your mute switch), turns off internet (reduces distractions) and turns off Do Not Disturb (makes sure you get your notifications).

The finish shortcut resets your internet to make sure your Wifi and Cellular are turned back on. Don't forget to run this after you've completed your meditation.

You can also customize your won Shortcuts with Lotus Bud, for example you could start a relaxing music playlist when you start your meditation, if you're into that sort of thing.

More to come, and keep an eye out for shortcuts for Lotus Bud Mindfulness Bell too.

Lotus Bud Mindfulness Bell Completely Redesigned!

Propel your meditation practice from the cushion into the world.  Modeled after a practice in Buddhist monasteries, Mindfulness Bells are a powerful practice to remind you of your intention to be mindful. Activate the Mindfulness Bell and it sends you gentle reminders of your intention for your practice through the day.

Turn it on, then as you're going about your day, a bell and notification will remind you to be mindful of what you're doing at a random intervals between half an hour and an hour and a half. Great for reminding yourself of your mindfulness practice while at work, commuting, at school.

New in Lotus Bud Mindfulness Bell 2.0:

  • Completely rewritten and redesigned for iOS 7
  • Continuous Mindfulness Bell Scheduling
  • Quiet Times to silence the bell when appropriate as an in-app purchase

There's no need to re-open the app every day. Thanks to new features in iOS 7 we're able to schedule and keep on scheduling mindfulness bells without needing to re-open the app. Just launch once, turn the mindfulness bell on and you're good to go.

You want the Mindfulness Bell reminding you to be mindful, but not all times are the right time to do that. Now you can schedule Quiet Times when you need a the Mindfulness Bell to be silent. Schedules can be created for any day or days of the week and for any time with an in-app purchase.
