      "text": “One interesting thing to try when you're meditating is to get curious about the experience of loneliness. What does it feel like in your body? What are the thoughts like? We're often quick to try to distract ourselves from the feeling by turning on the TV, looking at our phones, having a drink or a snack, etc. But see if you can pause once in a while and just ask, "what is loneliness like?""
