Asheville Campus Entertainment and the Academic Success Center presents …

Adulting 101: A Workshop Series

What they didn’t teach in high school…. but should have!


All events are 7-9 pm in HIG 228/229


Self-Care or Self-Sabotage? How to Tell the Difference. 

*November 8th*

Presenter: Julie Townley and Laura Carper

HIG 228/229

7 to 9 pm

Snacks and tools provided

Daily, we are inundated with messages about “self-care” and what we should be doing to care for ourselves. Self-care is not one size fits all and it’s sometimes harder to distinguish between what’s actually good for us and what just feels good in the moment. Join as we take a deeper look into self-care, self-soothing, and self sabotage.

In this workshop, we will learn several exercises to ground ourselves, regulate our nervous system, and check in with what is working and not working for us.  There will also be goodie bags, giveaways, and a raffle!
