Formality is just, well, too formal for me. Meditation for one, does not need all the bells and whistles if you don’t mind the slightly incongruous phrase. Sitting quietly for a few minutes and gazing at the floor, or out the window, or at a favorite picture of object is enough to decompress and take a break from things. That’s one thing about humans, we always have to try to make something out to be more than it is or needs to be. Formality chases many people away from the things they need most.
