Breathing & Relaxation Workshop
Led by social worker, Denise Dicupe, this workshop will introduce you to deep breathing and breathing awareness, progressive muscle relaxation, mindfulness, and guided imagery.
These techniques are tools to help; decrease anxiety, stabilize your mood, cope with stress more effectively, make you aware of any tension in areas of your body where you are carrying stress, to be in the present and resist the urge to think about the past or worry about the future while focusing on remaining calm and focused, boost energy and mood, and combining all of your senses (visual, taste, touch, smell, and sound) to focus on a safe and restful place.
Date: Monday, November 19
Time: Common Hour AND 3:15-4:15pm
Location: Counseling Office, Lorenzo Hall 3rd floor
If you are unable to attend either of those time, please contact Denise at 718-940-5734 to schedule a time to meet with her.
