I am new and have read the booklet (watched the videos on how to meditate).
1. Should we set an alarm clock to our meditation session at home to 30 mins or an hour so that we know when to stop? if not, I may be thinking from time to time if it's time yet.
2. During our sitting meditation, do we say some words to ourselves in our head throughout the meditation: "rising, falling, rising, falling, etc." and when an emotion comes: "pain, pain, .... happy, happy..."? do we always say some words during the meditation to note what is going on in our body?
