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."

  • Announcing... a new type of GC!

    **This is a re-post - the original is missing**


    Hey everyone

    We've got some exciting news! You may remember that earlier this year, we asked you guys what you thought about GC and ways we could improve it. We've since been looking over all of your feedback and come up with an idea...

    We'll be launching a new type of General Chat on Tuesdays!

    How these chats will work is that each Tuesday, we'll open up part of the chat for one of you guys to host.

    You can host a section of the chat about anything you'd like, such as a themed chat, a game, watch along or quiz (any ideas you have are welcome too!). You can host for as long or as little as you like. So you could run 30 minutes or an hour in the middle of general chat (for example). It's completely up to you and what you feel comfortable with.

    For example, you might decide you want to run a music quiz for 30 minutes. We'll leave it up to you to write the quiz and decide how you want it to go, then the normal GC session will resume once it's over. You could also have a themed discussion (maybe about mental health, self-care, politics, bananas, the list goes on...) for as long as you'd like it to be, or maybe a different kind of game you'd like to play with the group.

    When will the chats run?
    These chats will run every Tuesday from 8-9.30pm, and the first chat will be running Tuesday 11th July!

    How do I take part?
    If you're interested in hosting a general chat, please complete the form here. Demand might be high, so please list a number of dates that you're available to host.

    If you have any questions at all, feel free to comment below or send us a PM.

    Hey guys!!

    Just to let you all know... that I will be the host of the first ever new Tuesday GCs!!!

    I had an idea to let you guys pitch, well, ideas, on what you wanted the chat to revolve around! Well, I'm not allowed to do that apparently

    But we have decided that Tuesdays chat wil be.... a quiz!!!

    If you guys have any questions, fire away! And
    * hopefully * me or one of the mix guys will get back to you with an answer!

    Thanks everyone!!! Stay awesome!

          Just bumping this - we're looking for a few more potential hosts to sign-up. We also have a space in tonight's session if anyone would like to do anything for it.

            I would live to... but I'm never free on a Tuesday these days.

            If I ever get a free Tuesday I will definitely sign up!

                  Would be great to have you hosting if/when you're free.

                    The queue for hosting is super light - do sign up if you're interested.

                      That's because it's a silly idea Mike.
