Alicia Keys is a busy woman … but she always makes time for one thing.
"I have really gotten deep into meditation," the musician, mother, activist and star of "The Voice" said. "Some days I have 15 minutes, some days I have 40 minutes, some days I only have 5 minutes! But I have to take that time, because if I don't, I feel 'off.'"
Speaking in Brooklyn at Together Live, a storytelling gathering and performance tour featuring other prominent women writers and activists, Keys said that she tried meditation for years — on again, off again, getting distracted, falling asleep — before it recently became a daily habit for her.
