You need to find time to engange in your practice when you can focus and find calmness. WIthout that, things will seem off, agitated and disjointed.
“Concentration is a cornerstone of mindfulness practice. Your mindfulness will only be as robust as the capacity of your mind to be calm and stable. Without calmness, the mirror of mindfulness will have an agitated and choppy surface and will not be able to reflect things with any accuracy.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
