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!

    Hello, my name is Emma and I am new to the mix.

    I am currently going through a very tough breakup that happened almost 3 weeks ago. We were living together and were due to get married in 2 months time until he called it off as he was not ready to get married and does not know what he wants anymore. I am feeling extremely low, cant stop crying and feel very lost. I just want to meet new people and see if anyone is going through the same thing i am at the moment and see if we can support each other.

    Welcome, Emma! Sounds like things are pretty rough at the moment. Feel free to get stuck in and post your own threads in the support forums if you like. It's good to have you here.

      Hey Emma!
      Sorry to hear about how things are, that's awful
      Not sure if I've been on here long enough to be considered one of the regulars, but I'm on here pretty regularly anyway

            Hey Emma, welcome

            So sorry to read things are difficult rn
            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
