CEW+ Virtual Drop-In Study Day

April 21, 2021 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s the end of the semester and CEW+ is providing a virtual community space to help you finish the year off strong and to prepare to make the most of your study days. Take two hours out of your day to set yourself up for success, Wednesday, April 21, 10:00 am- 12:00 pm. CEW+ invites students to drop in and take advantage of our virtual study space and intentional activities designed to help you destress and focus. Feel free to join us for the whole event, or come and go as works best for you. Our study space provides an opportunity to study independently but not in isolation.

Join us to connect with other students, enhance academic planning skills, learn about the academic benefits of good nutrition, and practice mindfulness meditation. There will also be a social networking opportunity to meet other students virtually.

Feel free to drop in to take advantage of the goal-setting and planning session. CEW+ is here to support you! Encourage your friends to study together virtually, or just hang out and meet other students from different departments in a relaxing and welcoming space.

This program will be followed by the CEW+ Inspire Midweek Mindfulness Guided Sit from 12:15 – 12:45 pm –  we hope you will join if it interests you. Click here to RSVP separately for the Zoom link.

Kellie Carbone, MAHealth Educator, Eating Disorder Prevention and Body Image, Wolverine Wellness, University Health Service
Kellie’s interests include college student wellness, storytelling as a tool for personal transformation, improving body image, exercise resistance, mindful eating, and mindful movement, the impact of stigma and oppression on personal well-being, mindfulness, and resilience. She uses her intuition, creativity, insight, and humor to help people live authentically and fully. She believes that when we label a behavior as “bad”, “wrong” or “problematic,” it becomes impossible to cultivate any curiosity about what that behavior has to teach us and usually means we must endure problems for a longer period of time. Whether it seems clear to us in the moment, we are usually doing the best we can, and when we ask the right questions, the path to improved wellness is revealed. Kellie is a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in eating and body image issues.
