Hi everyone, This section of the forum is a little different to the others, as you may have noticed in looking around the threads. Elsewhere on the forums, we discuss some pretty heavy topics: mental health issues, thoughts of suicide, trauma, abuse, relationship breakdowns. Here is the place to come to get away from that and have a bit of fun. Distraction can be an important tool to draw on if you're finding yourself overwhelmed by distressing thoughts and feelings. As this is a section for respite from difficult topics, we will remove posts made in this section that attempt to discuss personal issues. Please use a support thread in the appropriate section for these discussions. Happy posting!

Hi everyone! Not sure if I'm in the right spot but thought I'd post in here just in case. So Christmas is coming up and I know how hard it can be for some people, those who are lonely or separated from their family this year. I wanted to send out Christmas cards to people to help brighten spirits and just give that little bit of kindness this year. I have seen in other countries services that have people sign up and send out Christmas cards to those on a list so you get their name etc and then send them out, but I can't seem to find anywhere in Australia that does this. Have you guys heard of any services like this in Aus, preferably QLD? Or know of another way I can send some out? Edit. I am also considering calling nursing homes to see if they have any residents who don't receive anything at Christmas time

Hi everyone, new to this forum. I used to use exercise as an outlet / way to stay in a good, positive place. Used to enjoy doing fun runs, normally 10km, with a couple of half marathons thrown in. Also started open water swimming. haven’t exercised for a while though. Need to get back in to it as I find it really does help me. what does everyone else do, exercise wise, to stay in a positive place?

What's the deal banana peel? There is a unique connection between what we eat and how we feel. This thread is all about sharing food ideas and recipes that are healthy or easy so we have time to look after our health while suffering from an illness or maybe just because you can. Whats up buttercup? A healthy body is a healthy mind and vice versa! This will be food for the soul! Here's an idea to get the ball rolling: I get a kaleslaw from coles pre-made, it has five super foods in it including seeds with a very healthy yoghurt dressing. This is great in wholemeal wraps with ham and cheese for lunch or as a salad with freshly grilled chicken for dinner with toasted wraps as a crunchy feel. It usually lasts 3 days and I only dress it when I eat it. Enjoy that one on me.
