The Comfort Sport - How to keep sadness at bay

11:34pm Wednesday 30th April 2014

Sadness. It’s one little word that we seem to use for everything. And so often it is overlooked as a petty emotion. We need to stop this because being sad means that something isn’t right. Sure, being sad because you didn’t get the new I-Phone is a different matter but the kind of sadness that we all have felt is not healthy. It comes about from a manner of different things and sometimes there is nothing we can do in the moment but try and live through it. So having experienced this myself I searched for something that was there for people with problems others might see as petty but really mean a lot to us in the moment.
