Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Spotify Playlists!

    Hey there

    We've just updated this thread so that we can use it as a place to add more playlists

    1.Feeling Gloomy?
    First off, we were inspired by the mental health charity Sane who have been running a campaign in partnership with Spotify - it's all about how music can lift your mood

    Sometimes sad songs with lyrics we can relate to, or that reflect our mood can cheer us up - just as much as the upbeat and uplifting ones can. It's about what works for you.

    Have a listen and feel free to add your own!

    Feeling Gloomy - The Mix playlist

    We're Aife, Mike and Emma: the staff team here at The Mix.
    While we can't offer support via this account, if you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.

      Ha! This just reminded me of the chill out playlists I was working on, to share, a couple years ago. Never finished them.

        Just wondering, how do you cut the songs down (like was done on the above playlist?) - been looking for apps to do it as I'd really like to do my own ???

          I'll make one and share it if you make one
          Haha! I actually (still ) haven't finished them, but this may motivate me to do so...

          If you do end up making one, though, I'd love to have a listen!
