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."

  • Self Care

    hey guys,
    my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

    Hey Meggles, this thread is a great idea, thanks so much for making it. Self-care and taking some time to look after yourself is really important so here's a few more ideas:

    - Make some popcorn and watch a funny film like Bridesmaids
    - Make a playlist full of up-beat motivational songs
    - Have a pyjama day and watch Netflix all day!
    - Also have to agree with you Meggles with the bathbombs!

      I agree (Rare I know),
      ​My self-care is a bit different and harder but this is my list
      ~Reading
      ~walking
      ~Listen and play music
      ​~Play with a pet

      Speak soon

        Hmmmm, not sure of the difference between self care and indulgence 😂😂

        Either way, they're both important 👌
        So, I guess these are a few of my ideas...

        1) Playing with pets! (Was gonna just put dogs, but even a budgie would do, but good luck walking a budgie) Fun, and gets you outside
        2) Or, stay inside and binge on netflix
        3) Deciding enough is enough, and napping through the madness

        And, for when I can remember where I've accidentally hidden my kindle, nothing beats a good book! (Except a good film adaptation of a book, because I'm lazy)
