Apple Music has a ton of customized content for its listeners in For You, but its Favorites, New Music, and Chill mixes are the keystone of the service's personalization. The mixes are updated weekly, based entirely on your tastes and listening habits.
Because these are updated frequently, you may find yourself loving a mix, but losing it when the next week's refresh comes around — and unfortunately, there's currently no way to go back and view past mixes. That said, if you like a mix, you can save it as a playlist to your library while it's active; that way, when the mix changes on Apple Music, you'll still have the prior week's mix saved as a playlist for future listening. Here's how to save your Favorites, New Music, and Chill mixes on your iPhone and your Mac.

Not sure this will work long term though, in my experience if you just add an Apple Music playlist to your library, it will keep updating itself. If you really want to freeze your Favourite Mix indefinitely, you have to choose Add to Playlist (existing or a new one).
