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."

  • Time off work for interviews

    Does anyone know where the law stands on getting time off from your current job to go for interviews elsewhere? Is it a legal requirement or can they stop you from going if you're contracted to work then?

    I have an interview but it's 10am on a Tuesday. This is the set day for interviewing. My boss is a bitch and is curently making my working life hell 'cos she knows I want to leave.

    I am owed 8 hours pay for extra hours I've worked. Would it be worth asking to take some of that time back, therefore appearing to be wanting to reach a compromise?

    Ask if she would let you have a day off for an interview, but don't tell her when. If she says no appear to accept it. On the morning of the interview call in sick.

      Not that I'd recommend lying, but you might want to pretend you've got a dentists or hospital appointment, rather than saying you're looking for another job
      She sang for mercy, for the living and the dead alike, for Bran and Rickon and Robb, for her sister Arya and her bastard brother Jon Snow, away off on the Wall. She sang for her mother and her father, for her grandfather Lord Hoster and her uncle Edmure Tully, for her friend Jeyne Poole, for old drunken King Robert, for Septa Mordane and Ser Dontos and Jory Casseland Maester Luwin, for all the brave knights and soldiers who would die today, and for thechildren and the wives who would mourn them

        i agree.

        hospital appointments usually work well, cause you are allocated a spot, and not really able to change it. but with your profession, it's a dangerous game.

        dentist would work though.

          Wouldn't work, she'd ask to see the hospital letter (I work for the NHS) and I would be allowed paid leave for it.

          The other problem I've now got is that another member of staff is on holiday that day. I've arranged cover for myself but they're still really going to be a staff member short. Argh! I can't even begin to discuss it with my manager 'cos she's barely at work these days.
