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."

  • Sorry

    My brain is like a battlefield against myself and I can't take much more.
    I feel like I'm constantly attempting to be happy and it's a attempt I no longer can make. I wish I stopped existing. I wish I wasn't alive anymore..

        Glad to hear that you're feeling a bit better Evie

        Emotions don't always make sense and sometimes there's just too much going on to even know where to start. Take advantage of the good days, that's what I say and if you're not feeling up to doing anything big then a walk or just watching your fav you tubers in comfy clothes should do just as good.

        I sometimes find that once I'm able to identify what the emotion is I can then proceed to problem solve (DBT term lol)
