Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

    I've had a spam email. Normally i have email notifications on for PM. A few weeks ago i had a spam email. No idea what this means but when i first saw it i had already seen the message. Has anyone else had this before?

    Thanks for flagging this with us Abi. What did the spam email say, exactly? Could you copy it into this thread or into a PM for us?

          Cheers Abi - I've just seen the PM. It looks like this might be a from back when we tested Discord. Seems genuine.

          Because of the link we sent out, your email inbox might have marked it as spam when it wasn't. They do that sometimes to protect against harmful links. Sometimes things that aren't spam get caught up in the filter.

                    Sooo... this was actually us testing a new version of the boards. We had no idea you guys would get notifications for our test posts! We'll put an announcement up about this soon, but the boards URL will be changing. More on that to come, but in the meantime you can ignore any notifications for threads that start with the URL 'themix.org.uk/communities/forum'.

                            Hey Abi,

                            Just an update here - we've looked into this but we're not sure what's caused it. Apologies that we don't have a better answer! If it happens again though, do let us know.
