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."

  • Hello everyone!

    Hey! I`m Helena and I`m 28. I`m happy to be here and share my thoughts and experience with you. I currently work as a freelance writer. I love reading inspiring stories, but the most I like writing it. I`ve passed through a lot of difficulties to become who I`m now. I totally can share my experience on how to survive difficult times​. So if you have any questions you want to ask I`m here to answer it.

    Hey Helena - welcome to The Mix

    The Mix is a UK charity that provides support to young people under the age of 25 - some of the services we signpost young people to are UK based and only for poeple under 25s, so these might not always be relevant to you, but the boards are a great place to get advice and support others.

    Also - I just made a small edit to your post and removed the website link you put in - we have a few guidelines on the boards which don't permit links or ads.Hope that all makes sense

    Looking forward to seeing you around the boards

    - Aife
