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."

  • Staff being lazy on Fridays

    At a few places I've worked at, most of the staff would put a lot less effort and concentration into their work on Fridays (particularly during afternoons) than they did on other days - and that would be tolerated by the boss. I put the same amount of effort in regardless of which day of the week it was. When I'd ask colleagues something about a particular case or needed their assistance with something, they'd reply by saying things like: "I couldn't give a shit - in a couple of hours time I'll be in the pub getting pissed!" or "Ask me some other time - not on a Friday afternoon, for fuck's sake!". On some of those occasions, I'd have a client on the phone who needed an answer then and there - but couldn't get it because most of my colleagues were mentally elsewhere and thinking only about how drunk they were going to get that night.

    Is there a way I can effectively tackle that? At each workplace I tried telling the manager of this problem, but all of them were lazy on Fridays as well and therefore sided with my be-lazy-on-Fridays colleagues.
