It is my humble opinion that sad songs make the world go round. There is nothing like blasting your ear drums to the song that touches your inner soul - we all have one. You know, the song you played over and over again when you broke up with your first love, or the song that speaks directly to you at your saddest. There is nothing like that feeling of being completely seen by someone else's words, when you're at your most vulnerable or low.

I have been practising yoga for at least 5 years now, mostly on my rest days in the week. It’s a way of keeping my body active, whilst stretching out the muscles from the intense work outs.
