The Unguided Timer in Ten Percent Happier on iPhone and iPad

Our popular Unguided Timer includes customizable time increments, unique bell sounds to start and end a meditation, optional interval bells and custom warm-up, and bonus time logging. To access these features, make sure your app is updated to version to 6.29.0 or higher.

  • Tap Singles in the menu at the bottom of the screen. 
  • Scroll down to the “Go Unguided” section.
  • If you're reading this on the same cellphone you use for the app, you can also open it directly by tapping this link.

To adjust the length of time (up to 90 minutes), swipe left and right along the vertical bars under the time setting.

You can also customize the following:

  • Start/End Bell - choose from a variety of available bell sounds. Scroll up and down on the pop-up menu for the options.
  • Interval Bell Timing - choose an optional interval for bell sounds throughout the meditation period.
  • Warm Up - choose an optional warm up period to give you additional time to get situated before your meditation begins.


If you keep meditating after your final bell rings, the timer will track Bonus Time until you tap Finish and Save. Once you tap Finish and Save, you have the option of choosing one of the following:

  • Add Bonus Time & Save - tap this to save your bonus time in addition to the time you originally set.
  • Finish & Save - tap this to save just the time you originally set on the timer.

To easily find the timer again, consider marking it as a favorite!
