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 like giving up

    i am so physically and mentally drained.. its exhausting and i'm struggling so much with everything. still waiting for the mental health team at uni to contact me and i don't know how much longer i can hold on for.
    i can't focus on anything that i need to do, my thoughts are going a million miles an hour and i have this desperate urge to harm myself all day..
    i just want my ground to swallow me up so i no longer exist.

    I know the way you're feeling is horrible right now, whilst you're waiting for the uni mental health team to contact you, why don't you try the 1 2 1 chats on here?

          I'm not to good with support but could start of by telling us more so i can listen at least☺
          And probably heard it all before, but trying to distract yourself to keep safe.
          I always feels like this and is horrible. So you're not alone in feeling like that.
          Do you have support from friends and family?
          The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you are not going to stay where you are
