"It", I presume, is meditative practice. There are a few modern theories why it is that way. I wont bore you with them.
My wife often asks me not to help cleaning up around the house and the garage because, she says, that I get distracted to easily by picking up things that I haven't paid any attention to for who knows how long.
The same thing happens when you sit and have to clean up all the clutter in your head.
Ten or fifteen minutes can be a long time time when you spend it inside your own head.
