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."

                    Here at TheSite Towers we take your confidentiality really seriously. In an era of endless social networks and ways in which to communicate with each other we want to make sure that TheSite remains a safe haven for everyone here. A place to come to escape all of that.

                    In order for everyone to feel safe and to keep your anonymity intact we're asking every single member to sign up to our new confidentiality pledge which will soon become part of our forum rules.

                    By signing the confidentiality pledge you're agreeing to help keep TheSite a safe and anonymous space for everyone, including you!

                    The pledge

                    What is said on TheSite is not repeated/posted elsewhere on the web

                    If you share something on the boards or in chat we want you to feel confident that this won't appear on any other network. By signing the pledge you agree not to talk to others about what someone has said on TheSite over on other sites such as Mindful or Childline or through social networks like whatsapp, twitter and facebook.

                    This also works the other way around. Don't bring something someone shares elsewhere into discussion on TheSite without their permission.

                    Quote from our registration rules:

                    Your anonymity is your responsibility

                    We understand that many members connect away from Think carefully about when you decide to give out your personal information and who you give it to. If you stick around you'll make friends here over time but there is no rush to connect away from TheSite. If you keep your communication within the boards, chat and PMs then we can keep you safe.

                    Once you connect outside then your anonymity is your responsibility. Don't forget to block unwanted connections and check your privacy settings on other networks.

                    Chat specific pledge: Keep private conversations out of chat

                    When you mention in chat that you are also talking to someone on Whatsapp, facebook, skype, text etc. this can make other members feel unsafe. It can cause them to worry that what they share might go outside of the room. It also opens you up to temptation to talk about what's happening in chat away from the chat room.

                    Keep all other conversations separate and don't mention them in chat
                    . If you want to talk to someone away from chat then do so but there's no need to mention it in chat.

                    By replying to this thread with a thumbs up you are agreeing to use TheSite in the spirit of this pledge

                    If you'd like to send us any thoughts/feedback on the pledge then you can PM myself, Helen or James.
                    I like all the info
                    Don't let the bad thoughts get u down smile and walk away

                      "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
                      "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
                      "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
                      "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
