Paint & Sip: A Friendship Workshop for those with Anxiety

Thursday, January 14 @9pm (EST)

Coach Danielle will share 5 hacks for making friends during the pandemic, and while you learn, you'll paint your nails. Why? The repetitive motions of painting your nails is proven to help with anxiety, and since the idea of making friends makes some women anxious, you'll calm yourself with a therapeutic mani while learning how to form new connections. Bring your favorite bottle of polish and something to sip. [NOTE: This workshop does not take the place of counsel from a trusted healthcare professional.]
