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."

  • New Job- Feel they are taking advantage of me

    So as you may know I started my new job on the 13th of July in a nursery and ive started to feel that they are taking advantage of me considering I'm still on my trial, this is because they always make me do the cleaning and I don't have a choice and therefore I don't spend much time with the children which is what I had in my mind when I applied for the job. I understand cleaning needs to be done but I always feel its me that is doing it. it got to a stage when even though ive only just started I dotn want to go to work for the rest of this week as I need to speak to the manager who wont be back till next Tuesday. how can I stop myself feeling like this?

    Hey Laura

    Have you spoke to your manager yet?

    I think you if you feel like you're being taken advantage of it always good to read what your job description actually says for you to be doing And question it to them? and then if they keep telling you to do cleaning, maybe question if it is a job you want cause know how horrible it can feel to dread your week at work Hope it works out

    Take care
    I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future

      Hi Shaunie. I haven't spoken to a manager about this as since I wrote the post I have been given time with the children and they are sharing out the cleaning between the staff better so its much better at work right now. if things get back to how it was before then I will say something but things are okay right now.

        Hi Laura,

        ​That's great to hear about your work situation improving. I have been in your position previously and have felt similar feelings in regards to delegation of tasks. I have personally found having an open and honest line of communication with my manager meant that we could work together to improve the work environment so don't be afraid to speak up and let your manager know how you are feeling - and this applies to anything you may be unhappy with. Alternatively, you could always ask for support from other employees or suggest a 'cleaning rota' so that workload is fairly shared.
