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 change of mind. If I could vote, I'd vote labour. As much as I think we need a change of the system, I'm not sure the country is ready yet, but labour might get us there after a few terms.

      I presume you are under 18 then. That's a shame. When you do get the chance to vote, please do so. It may feel that none of the parties represent you, and that's true to a degree, but also entirely understandable - political parties want votes to get into power, so they are going to go after demographics that are most likely to vote, and at present that is the young. The more young people vote, the more they will have to listen to the young.

      Besides being on the electoral roll helps your credit rating.

            So, how many debates has the PM been a no-show to now then? Her excuse is that she says squabbling polticians will change nothing, but that's all politics ever was anyway. Pathetic.

                I have defected from the Liberal Democrats to Labour. I would not be too upset if Theresa May and her party won, it's just such a shame for the NHS etc. and cuts to welfare and I will be affected but she seems strong and I feel like she means business, unlike Jeremy Corbyn who is a little salty for me, if that makes sense as a leader? I have read the full document based on disabilities and as I am disabled the Labour party represent me the best - it's all about what you believe in and what affects you.

                  You shouldn't be proud of that - women died so that you could have the opportunity to vote. We have the chance to have our say on things that really affect us and our lives and you are not going to take it? Voting turnout for young people is really low - we could really make a difference if we all turned up and had our voice heard. It's not funny or a joke. This is our country.

                              Hey Shaunie,

                              Sorry to hear that you're in hospital - hope things aren't too bad?

                              Looks like you've got there already, but you can apply for an emergency proxy vote if you'd like someone else to vote for you
                              In case you need it, there's some info on how to do that here. Note that the person voting for you would need to get to the polling station before 5pm today

                              Good luck!
