Is it necessary to add meditation as a important part of our daily routine?
Thank you for your question.
It’s not necessary to add meditation to your daily routine. However, it is a popular tool to slow your mind down and practice not thinking. It can be used with journaling to help you see what’s going on in your brain, or some people like to listen to a guided meditation on youtube. It is highly recommended that you practice some type of groundwork exercise (slowing down your thinking to become present to your surroundings) especially during times of high stress or anxiety. If you find that meditation is difficult to exercise you can try mindfulness or breathwork. Mindfulness is bringing yourself into a state of awareness of what is happening in the present moment.
Many people choose tools such as colouring books, cooking or running in a park without music. You can find more about mindfulness here. You can find various Mindfulness exercises through this link. On the other hand if you find yourself having difficulty breathing or being overwhelmed about a situation, you can always try a quick breathing exercise.
