Workshop on Expanding Your Comfort Zone

Posted on 2/20/2012 8:45:55 AM

Feeling too confined by your “comfort zone”? Wish you had the confidence to do more things, get more involved? Our comfort zones tend to both protect us and limit us, and finding ways to broaden the boundaries of our comfort zones can make our lives more fulfilling and satisfying. Find out how to create a healthier balance in your life with this workshop offered by the Counseling Center on Thursday, February 23, 2012, from 3:00–4:00 p.m. in Room G32, Suites on Maple East.

The Counseling Center at the Center for Health and Well-Being is offering a series of workshops to talk about issues that commonly affect college students.

The workshops will cover a variety of topics. You are not required to attend all of the workshops. Attendance vouchers will be provided.
