      "text": "Insomnia affects lots of people and the challenge is to try not to get into a struggle with being awake when you’d rather be asleep, because the more you resist it, the more it will agitate your mind and make getting back to sleep even harder. Meditation can be helpful when you have insomnia because when you meditate, you're building a muscle that helps you redirect your mind. One thing you can do is practice meditation regularly, even for just a few minutes a day, not just when you're having trouble sleeping. And you can use it in sleepless moments too! Here are some ideas."
