Soulcare is universal, but how we do it is oh-so personal.
– KEYS SOULCARE
Much like our bodies, schedules, joys, and challenges, our soulcare paths are super personal. Finding what works for us is all about understanding what it means to be in practice, observance, and appreciation of ourselves as individuals first. From there, it’s up to you to let your personal glow shine bright. We recently asked some of our community about what soulcare means to them. Read on to inspire and affirm your rituals, wherever and however you find them.
“Soulcare is a celebration of what it means to be a woman in today’s society. It taps into the rich universe that women inhabit by nature. We are the soul of the world. Women pass the torch of soulcare from one generation to the next so that humanity burns bright for everyone. Soulcare means to have hope in ourselves and in others because [as Aristotle said] ‘those who have hope have nothing to fear.” — Danusia Garrison, writer
“I love that term, soulcare. To me, it means returning to spiritual health, and that’s what I’ve always been interested in. Not only a very strong mind-body connection, but also exploring the emotional body. You can do all the things, (the green juice, the workout, the face cream…) and check things off the list, but if you’re not managing and interacting with your emotional wellbeing, that stuff’s not going to shine through.’” — Sara Auster, sound therapist, meditation teacher, and author
“[Soulcare] means to be bold and accept yourself for [who] you are in the skin you’re blessed in, showing the world there’s nothing you’re afraid of or trying to hide. Soulcare means to shine in your own beauty freely ❤” —Aaron Turner, model and actor
“Soulcare is allowing the integration of spirit, mind, and body to be without hindrance. So, if I want to be in a conversation and I want to bring my spiritual sense into the conversation — whether it’s professional work, wellness, or health — I’m free to do that. And I don’t feel any type of way about that connection.” — Lalah Delia, spiritual writer and wellness educator
“Soulcare means just that: taking care of your soul. All the good things that make you, you. The things that make you feel good and smile.” — Yamell Rodriguez, model
“It’s a way to meet myself at the start and end of the day, and give myself back love and nourishment. We move through the world so quickly with social media and productivity-[obsessed] hustle culture. It’s nice to remember that you are really a living thing that needs to be taken care of, and that your body, mind, and soul are all interconnected.” — Ivan Lam, beauty influencer
“Soulcare applies to my life, specifically, in doing little things that spark joy for me. It’s not really related to things like makeup. It’s as simple as making a hot cup of tea. I love tea for just winding down and being able to sit with myself in that moment. I practice that almost every day.” — Aysha Sow, digital creator, model, and style blogger
“Soulcare means giving yourself some love by taking care of your body and mind; they work in conjunction to be your sacred space.” — Janeal Suquilanda, full-time student
