PIECE OF PEACE: TIME ALONE
Being alone is the key to your greatness.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Today’s Ritual: Time alone
Time for yourself
To hear your thoughts
To do something you’ve never done before ( For me it was this Aerial yoga)
With nobody but you
A little #Mondaymotivation To tune into you.” — Alicia Keys
Solitude often gets a bad rap. The implication that being alone means you’re lonely makes us overlook the benefits of seclusion. But Alicia’s post reminds you to romanticize your life with a solo ritual.
Set the intention to play, rest, create, reflect to recharge, or ignite a new passion — just for you. (Yes, this means no social media, texting, e-mails, or taking phone calls.) This disconnection is a reconnection to who you truly are and nixes the urge to perform for others.
Being fully present for yourself can clarify what you need with less judgment and influence from the outside world. You can unlock your deepest desires or simply feel relaxed enough to experience who you are outside of your roles.
Prioritize your solo time by saying “no,” blocking off calendar dates, or starting your day with a five-minute meditation. Whatever you choose, remember: Soulcare isn’t selfish because your ability to love others comes from the overflow of love you give to yourself.
