Shawn Mendes’ confinement time with Camila Cabello was “special”.
The 23-year-old singer dated Camila, 24, for two years before recently announcing their split – but Shawn enjoyed spending time locked up alongside the brunette beauty.
Speaking to Rollacoaster Magazine – in an interview to be conducted prior to their separation – Shawn explained, “I spent most of the pandemic in Miami with Camila and her family, it was beautiful, really so special. I often come back to look at photos and the simplicity of the time, we were lucky, it was fun to ride a bike.
“I hadn’t happily rode my bike in a neighborhood since I was 12 years old before that. We were cooking dinner, just doing normal things. Latin culture is also so beautiful, so being able to immerse myself in that culture. is still really healing. “
Shawn also discussed his mental health, revealing that he uses a breathing technique to help relieve his anxiety.
He said, “Usually when I’m feeling anxious I like to step back and breathe a little bit. There’s a ton of different breathing work you can do…
“One that really helps me is the four, seven, eight breath. Another method that I practice is the Wim Hof method. I find it really resets my system. So these are usually my two methods that I use when I’m feeling upset, anxious, or nervous. “
Meanwhile, Shawn opened up about his long-term career ambitions, explaining that he wanted to make a “positive contribution.”
He shared, “Musically and personally, I just want to keep making music that I’m proud of and making music that people connect with…
“If I can just keep doing shows and hopefully inspire people by being a positive contribution, then I’ll be really happy.”
