Sri Anand. Excellent suggestion. Thanks.

Like Sri Mani, my fingers hurt as well, setting up an alarm would help.

I have a question pertaining to what Sri Mani said: 
I used to face the Sun (With eyes closed) during the Japam, but ,it started
effecting my clarity of vision for upto 2 hours after
avani avittam prayers.

So, my question is: Is it ok to be facing the Sun (in the mornings)
 (Especially if its for an hour or so.)
