"This week, I noticed how much I compare myself to others. I find this greatly contributes to feelings of loneliness. When I look at my alone time as a special time to do self-care or to explore something new, I find I don't feel alone at all. I feel invigorated."
~ Mia from Orlando, Florida
Even before the pandemic, loneliness was considered to be an epidemic. Loneliness doesn't necessarily have to do with other people. You can feel quite content by yourself but you may feel alone in a crowd. You may even feel lonely with loved ones around you. Loneliness is more about feeling connected with others, yourself, and the world. Explore ways to feel more connected with meditation techniques all week long.
You're invited to join our Combatting Loneliness Challenge. Begin a new journey by trying something new, or reaching out to someone who needs help.
This is day 7 of a 7-day meditation series, Loneliness Project, episodes 2439-2445.
