Jada Pinkett Smith talks finding balance in relationships amid self-quarantine: ‘I need two hours, please’
As people quarantine across America in the battle against coronavirus, many are struggling with being surrounded by loved ones around the clock.
And Jada Pinkett Smith, 48, addressed how to find that balance on her Facebook series, Red Table Talk.
As seen in a teaser for her next episode, a fan asked via Twitter, ‘I love my wife, but I need some alone time during this quarantine. How can I tell her that?’

Motivational vlogger Jay Shetty stressed the importance of explaining why one needed space.
‘If you’re just seeking more space in your relationship I think one of the bigger mistakes we often make is that we express what we want but we don’t explain why we want it,’ he said.
Jada agreed, insisting sometimes asking for ‘space’ could be interpreted as a desire to separate.
‘I think that’s true because if you say to somebody, “I need space,” sometimes that’s a trigger for one step towards divorce. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that. It just means, “Hey I need two hours, please,”‘ she added.

Fans will be able to hear more tips from Jada on the next episode of Red Table Talk, set to air Wednesday on Facebook.
Jada discussed the coronavirus on the last episode of her talk show, where she was joined by her husband Will Smith.
The actor joked he felt ‘responsible for a lot of the misinformation’ surrounding the virus because of his zombie film, I Am Legend.
In the film, Will’s character seeks to reverse the effects of the virus by using his own immune blood.

During their Red Table Talk, Jada revealed she’s keen to develop her understanding of coronavirus.
The actress – who has been married to Will since 1997 – said: ‘Just like other families around the world, we are trying to navigate all the information out there about COVID-19.’
Jada also explained why her 21-year-old son Jaden was absent from the discussion.
She said: ‘You’ll notice Jaden is not joining us today because he’s being a responsible human and social distancing.
‘He’s been doing a lot of travelling and his main concern has been about Gammy [Adrienne], so he has decided to stay indoors and he’s actually following orders.’
