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."

  • About this forum (Health & Wellbeing)


    This is the user guide to Health & Wellbeing
    but you should also remember the
    registration rules you agreed to
    when joining these boards.




    Welcome to Health & Wellbeing

    This is a safe space is to talk about anything related to mental or physical health as well as general wellbeing. There are a few things to bear in mind:

    1. You are free to talk about anything related to your mental or physical health. But it's important to remember that what you say will have an effect on other people. For this reason, please leave out anything too descriptive (such as weight measurements) or graphic (such as self-harm methods). We have separate guidelines for talking about self-harm, which are worth a read too.

    2. If you have a question you can also try doing a search first by using the white search bar in the top right hand corner of the page, or by looking at The Mix's own Mental Health info or Your Body section.

    3. You CAN NEVER be given an accurate diagnosis over the internet. You need to be examined by a qualified medical professional, and may also need clinical tests. Please take any advice you are given on public message boards with a pinch of salt - do not trust it until you have confirmed it with your nurse or doctor.

    4. Book an appointment with your GP or Ring up NHS 111 if there's anything you're really worried about.

    5. We promote healthy eating at The Mix, but not obsessive dieting (especially 'miracle', fad or crash diets). Many of our members suffer from eating disorders, so no diet stuff please. Competitive content, detailed accounts of exercise or content that can be considered pro-eating disordered will also be removed. We promote healthy eating here but not obsessive dieting. Please avoid sharing details about your specific weight, calorie counts or any behaviours (such as what or how much you've been eating or drinking). Instead we encourage you to focus on your feelings.

    6. Finally, the group environment is not a safe place to talk about suicidal feelings as it can be very distressing for others and we are not set up to offer support in a crisis. The moderator will suggest that you use more appropriate services such as Samaritans or Papyrus.


    If you are new to The Mix boards
    Head to our Start Here section where you'll find a load of useful info on what this place is about and how to get started.
