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."

  • Chats tonight (Tuesday 01/08/2017)

    Hey all (how is it August already?!)

    Tonight's chats are:

    Women &amp; Men-only Chats: Places to talk about anything on your mind in a safe, supportive environment with people of a similar gender identity. Anyone is welcome to attend the room they identify with most at the time. For any of you non-binary folks out there, you're welcome in whichever space you're most comfortable.

    Alice and Amy will be modding Women-only, and I'll be modding Men-only.

    General Chat: A place for more light-hearted chat about pretty much anything be it TV, music, the weather, that hilarious video you saw on YouTube etc. James will be modding and as of right now, we don't have a host so it may end up being a regular GC.

    We've been having a few issues with chat recently, so there will be a password for all chat rooms tonight. The password will be PolyjuicePotion (Support Circle will have a separate one).

    You can find the 'join' links on this page from 8pm.

    Have a good one!

              Thanks for the feedback guys.

              We're still in a sort of 'trial period' for the new GC at the moment so nothing is set in stone and there might be some changes to the way they work. Soon, we'll be looking at how they've been going and thinking about what we might be able to improve.

              For now, though, we'll stick to having these new hosted sessions once a week.

                I've never been to one of the hosted chats for more than a few minutes but I think they're a nice idea

                  I don't really enjoyed the new GC chats. GC is fine as it is
