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."

    what does this mean when it's in a job description? iv googled it and still can't find anything :-/
    they are loaded with prejudices, not based upon anything in reality,but based on... if something is new, they reject it immediately because itís frightening to them. what they do instead is just stay with the familiar.

    I would say that it is a post which has a lot of responsibility within a company but not necessarily high up enough to be on the Senior Management Team
    DrPirate is technically my little brother apparently - even though hes like a bazillion foot taller than me (OK 6 inches)

      Substantive post/position generally means that it's your main role.

      For example, if you go on secondment (you do another job for a fixed amount of time), you could refer to the job you usually do as your substantive position. Or, it could be used referring to someone on maternity leave who comes back to take up their substantive post (eg the job they had before they went on maternity leave).

      It's difficult to know what it means in a job description without knowing the context, but if it's unclear why not contact the employer and asking them to explain what this means in terms of the role.

      "You can not become if you only said what you would have done." So Do-it.
