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."

  • Show me your tattoos

    So 1) Im looking for some inspiration as I want to get another tattoo. So please feel free to show me what you have and also I thought I would like to pay tributes to Amy Bleuel by showing our semicolans (if you have one, I'de like to see them) who died by successful suicide at age 31. To show "my story isnt over" from a reader "a pause between two main clauses. Surviving and impending suicide".

    I'll start this is my semicolan. I have 4 other tattoos aswell.

    My tattoo is a moon, it is to remind me of my late nana who would often say to me "I love you to the moon and back". I'd love to in the future, get her's and my grandad's writing on me somewhere.

        Hey Lostsense.

        I dont have any tattoos, but I love how meaningful tattoos can be, especially something like the semicolon which can be so small and simple but mean so much. Wish i could contribute to the pictures in this thread, but since I can't, i really enjoy learning the stories behind other people's tattoos. Thanks for starting this thread
