Indira (khan)*Some folks might be able to relate to the feeling of loneliness especially close to Valentine’s Day. Chaka Khan‘s daughter, Indira, released her new single, “Lonely.”

“I wanted to release “Lonely” for all those lonely hearts this year on Valentines Day. I’ve been there and I know what you’re going through,” she said.

She added, “if there’s one thing I know about, it’s break ups. I think listeners will be able to identify with the lyrics in this song and the emotion.”

And although some folks are lonely and won’t be celebrating Valentine’s Day in the tradition sense, they can spend the holiday working on ways to get over someone. Indira shared five tips to do this.

“1. Stay Busy! Down time is your enemy fill your spare time with things to better yourself helps with self esteem and mental health it’s a win win.

2. Throw away burn destroy all memories. Don’t torture yourself …. don’t do it!

3. Meet new people. Find a comfortable way to meet new interesting people and go for it. Remember: no pressure, just friends.

4. Travel! Break the monotony and plan a girls/guys trip, even if it’s just a few hours away, something within the budget but it’s always good for the heart to have fresh new experiences.

5. Last but not least, make family time! Here’s a perfect time to catch up on lost time with that favorite family member. Make dinner together, shop or watch movies; but most importantly take this time to reflect get to know you, your wants, goals, life dreams, smile take a deep breath and live because life is beautiful!”
