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 feel confusing, possible trigger?

    I'm currently sat at my placement about to go off to a school to do some training about peer mentoring, and i'm just kinda sat here but not here? If that makes sense.
    I don't feel particularly upset or angry or anything like that, I just feel like I'm drowning in life and that any second I'll just collapse. As if there's always something at he back of my mind waiting. It's really hard to explain but I just feel kind of separate to everything and that if I hurt myself it won't really matter because its just psychical? I dunno, anyone any idea what I'm feeling?

    Hey Sammy,
    Hope you're feeling a bit better from this morning. We aren't experts here really but have you felt this way before? Do you know maybe what triggered these feelings? Young people do often experience feelings like this sometimes especially at school. Sometimes it can just get a little too much! Do you feel like you're maybe doing too much work and not raking time for yourself perhaps? Maybe taking a chilled day out to watch your fav movies or eat your favourite foods?
    Look forward to hearing from you,

      I'm at university so I have placement and uni work and social life to fit in. Can feel overwhelming sometimes.
      I feel like it quite a lot, nothing has to happen to make me feel like either. It's kind of like feeling nothing. So I dunno if been busy is what causes it as I've had it longer than I've been busy, it's more like emotional draining
      When I do have days off all I can be bothered doing is just laying in bed watching TV

        I understand completely how you feel with the university work. It can get quite hectic. Maybe you could do with some more social interaction if you're up for that? Go out with friends, and exercise is also often helpful if you can find time for it!
