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."

    Not sure if this counts but mine would probably be what my coach tells me which is:

    Never let success get to your head. Never let failure get to your heart.
    Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

      Esme17 I love that!! It's great that your coach is telling you to never get discouraged, reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "failure is not falling down, failure is refusing to get back up"

        “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

          Jellyelephant that's amazing! That's so true, fear can stop us from doing amazing things! Actually your quote reminds me of the movie "We're the Millers," the dad in the movie tells the son to just count to three and then do what he normally would have been scared to do, and it actually works for him! Hahah you're quote really reminded me of that movie!!

            There is No elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. - this also is the same about life and recovery.

              I love Forest Gump!! So my film quote would be:
              "Life is like a box of chocolate"
              I never got what this actually meant, but I guess it makes sense.

                  Aidan wow! I've never thought about that quote that way! I love Forrest Gump too, I always thought "Life is like a box of chocolates" meant everybody's life is so different, you never know what life is going to throw at you next! But I love your interpretation more!! It's so true, if you take out all the things in your life that make you happy, it becomes empty. Thanks for sharing!!

                      Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure and loss only act as motivation.
