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."

  • RANT (I dont expect replies)!

    So today I found out I got a D (49%) in my first maths assessment in exam year. You might think "wow, shes bothered about her first assessment", but I'm actually embrrassed to write that shockingly low number😂

    But what I don't get about schools is why on earth they give you a huge row for getting a bad mark... like, why not just help me to improve😂 and now my tracking is going to go down😂😭

    and if I'm getting D's in my assessments now, and mocks are in January, I probably won't be much better by then. Thing is they've set my target grades really high, so of course I'm under pressure!!

    Sorry, rant over.

    Sorry you feel so upset from this grade. I get what you mean about the teachers not being supportive. Have you went and spoke to one of your teachers about it and asked what you can do to improve?

    Just because you got a D now, it doesn’t mean you will get the same in your mocks you have a few months still to work on what your struggling with and get support and hopefully when it gets to your mocks you will feel ready for it.

    Also, as someone who had already been through gcse’s. Don’t worry about your grades too much. I panicked soo much during my exams and now I realise that I shouldn’t have got so worked up about them.

    You can only do your best!

      Thank you so much Esme. I spoke to my maths teacher yesterday and she as helpful, but it's the support woman (who I have previous and ongoing problems with) who was the main problem! But that's a whole other rant!

      Again thank you do much!

        No worries. It’s good that your maths teacher was helpful!

        I hope everything goes well with your other exams
