Please consider using a Latency in the Notification Trigger settings. If a latency is set for a trigger, a notification will only be sent if the condition causing the notification still exists after the seconds specified.

For example, if you set the latency for a trigger to 60 seconds, the notification will only be sent if the failure situation remains active for 61 seconds. See manual section Notifications for more information.
