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 got the Samsung Galaxy S6 which is Android but getting the S7 soon.

    I perfer androids rather than Iphones.

    140 is a low budget you'de have to look in shops like CEX.

      Two that spring to mind are the Huawei P8 Lite and Ulefone Be Touch 2. The Huawei one came strongly recommended to me by a colleague and you should be able to find one (maybe refurbished) in your price range. I've had the Ulefone Be Touch for a few years now and it was only 150ish when I bought it, lasted very well and performed decently considering how cheap it was. Should be able to find one of those for under 140 if you have a bit of a dig around.

      I agree with Lostsense though, 140 is a pretty low budget so you might have to look into pre-owned or refurb stuff unless you're okay with something basic.

            Mike it's actually funny you recommend to Jess the Huawei p8 as I've been at my mums today and my mums ex "boyfriend" now kind of "friend" has just bought a package on contract the Huawei but I think his is p9 and a tablet within the package and I think he said it's 40 a month I think
