About the Close School's Mindfulness and Wellbeing Class

May 31, 2018

Mind·ful·ness (noun) - the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
Well-be·ing (noun) - the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy.

Mindfulness and wellbeing have transitioned from buzzwords to everyday considerations for students and professionals alike. As a student, you may not yet realize how essential these two words are to sustaining the entrepreneurial spirit. Maintaining a startup or developing new ideas in a business are not easy tasks, but as you know, the people around you are there to help. Taking the Close School’s Mindfulness and Wellbeing class (ENTP 225) is an excellent idea for students who are looking to achieve better awareness and satisfaction with the work they put forward.

About the Mindfulness and Wellbeing Class

This class offers students a chance to learn how to progress with their work in a constructive and healthy manner. Starting or managing a business can be stressful, so it is crucial that you become conscious of your outlook and how it is affecting your work.

Being mindful of your audience/customer base, costs and quality of work are all important to building a successful startup. Keeping up with the wellbeing of a business, as well as your own mental health, as you partake in this journey is of utmost importance. In this class, you will learn how these components will contribute to your success as a student and as an entrepreneur.

Why You Should Take the Class

Not only will you gain important professional advice, but you will learn more about yourself as a businessperson. This class provokes creativity, innovation and an overall awareness of your priorities. It may be a requirement for Close School students, but that’s no reason not to get excited about this class if you are not an entrepreneurship major! Focusing on mindfulness and wellbeing can be applied to all aspects of life and career. If you’re a Drexel student that has a major outside of the Close School, we still encourage you to take this course. This is a perfect class for those who are undecided, thinking about making the switch to the entrepreneurship and innovation major or are simply looking to become mindful in a professional setting.

We can’t wait to see you grow in this great class! Have further questions about the courses at Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship? Check out what else we have to offer: http://drexel.edu/close/academics/courses/
