– KEYS SOULCARE
We’re getting curious with creative director, visual artist, and SoCurious founder Justin Shiels, and learning more about how he sees beauty, stays inspired, winds down each day, and more. Check out his must-haves, below:
1. Your favorite daily ritual that’s just for you?
I start every day with iced coffee and free-writing. My journaling practice is the key to processing my emotions and setting goals.
2. My dream for the future is …
To live in a world where everyone is free; a world where we honor and notice our differences, but that doesn’t stop us from living full and meaningful lives.
3. Your favorite part about yourself?
Growing up, I always hated the gaps in my teeth. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to love my crooked smile.
4. How do you take a moment for yourself?
Everyday, I try to take an afternoon walk. It’s a simple way to connect with nature and reconnect with myself and my needs.
5. Your personal mantra of the moment?
Just keep going… even [when] you’re afraid.
6. What music, book, and/or podcast are you vibing to?
Spirits Podcast explores myths, legends, and folklore. It puts me to sleep most nights.
7. Who and what inspires you?
I’m most inspired by the courageous people [who] aren’t afraid to live their lives out loud. People [who] love and laugh and spread joy in this world. People [who] create. People [who] aren’t afraid to be human.
