Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello Are Here to Keep You Calm, on Calm
Everyone’s favourite lockdown couple has teamed up with Calm, like many a pop star before them (Harry Styles).
And just like they did with their lockdown walks, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are taking their journey one step further — the celebrity ambassadors of the app are leading an entire series, entitled Breathe Into It.
The brand new series consists of 13 sessions from Cabello, and 11 from Mendes — several of which are available on the app right now, with more content expected next year.
For Calm, Mendes focuses on finding his own personal philosophy and learning how to overcome fear while Cabello centres her recordings on the uncertainty of life and the encouragement of self-positivity.
In a statement sent to Bustle UK, Mendes said, “Meditation has really changed my life and has made me both a better performer and has helped me immensely off the stage as well.”
As for what he wants to see others get out of it? His goal is for people to “embrace these tools” and “create their own mental wellness routines” while looking out for others.
Cabello has a similar experience with meditation, revealing how that practice, along with mindfulness, has helped her during challenging moments throughout her life. Her hope is that, by sharing her own journey, “We can continue to destigmatise conversations about mental health and asking for support.”
Mendes and Cabello are also looking out for others within this collaboration, as they’ll be granting free memberships for the app to youth activities and leaders involved in programmes of The Shawn Mendes Foundation.
It’s not the first time Mendes has paired with a fitness app, with the singer-songwriter contributing to Apple Fitness‘ ‘Time to Walk’, where he shared how a slower pace helped him both personally and creatively.
