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."

  • Bosses don't mind staff leaving early?

    At a few places I've worked at, the boss would bite the head off anyone who arrived late, even if just by a couple of minutes. However, those same bosses wouldn't say anything to staff who left early, leaving work incomplete. What could be the reason for that? Why is arriving a couple of minutes late considered severe wrongdoing, but going home the best part of an hour early, without completing that day's work, is turned a blind eye to? If I were a manager, I'd have a much bigger problem with my staff doing the latter thing.

    I guess it kind depends on the workplace? But coming late to work sometimes means set up time that's missed and is key is not done - for ex one of my parnets works in a print shop and if she's late, key machines used for printing & sewing projects aren't ready to work by the time the shop opens, and since it all needs to be set up when shop opens her being late means someone else (who also has set up to do) has to set up instead..inevitably, lateness leads to people not getting serviced because some set up is missed somewhere. Applicable to..all shops, factories. Idk much about other work places, like office work though.

    Some people will be exempt from punishment for leaving early if sufficient reason is given (family emergency, arrangements due to external things like health issues, working parents needing to pick up kids) though I don't see any good workplace not punishing poeple who leave early who don't have any good reason to.
    Why didn't you just shout i'm lonely and i'm looking for a place to go ~ Where everything's an embrace and everybody wants to know

      I'm not talking about people who need to leave for an important reason - I'm talking about people going home early and leaving work incomplete because they're lazy and selfish. I don't understand why leaving the best part of an hour early, without a legitimate reason, leaving work incomplete, was turned a blind eye to. At the same time, arriving a couple of minutes late would be met with anger from the boss, who would threaten to sack the employee should (s)he arrive late again.
