Alicia’s talking all things “me time” — and giving us a loving push to make it happen for ourselves.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Let’s give ourselves the time for ourselves. Do you know what I’m saying?” — Alicia Keys
Just before filming our exclusive Keys Soulcare Lounge, Alicia served up this piece of knowledge. The message is simple: Making solo time a priority ultimately boils down to making it happen. And then doing that again. And again. And… you get the picture, right?
“I know it feels crazy sometimes to figure out a way to find time for yourself, but we have to do it,” she said. “We gotta do it. And not just like, ‘Oh, I did it three weeks ago — I did it.’ Like, consistently, you know?”
Still, making time for yourself is easier said than done. Even Alicia described the hesitation that almost kept her from asking her partner to jump in and parent so she could get some quality solo time.
“I felt good that I gave myself that space, and that [he] was able to come through,” she added. “I was just wanting to just remind us to give ourselves the space for ourselves.”
One of the coolest parts of giving ourselves time is the vibrational positivity it creates around us: From helping us be more present every moment thereafter to (if we’re lucky) giving others the chance to show up for us, too.
But it all starts with us. And that’s a real gift, don’t you agree?
