The Pennsylvania Conference for Women
The Conference
in Your Inbox
Any day is a good day to think about mindset and whether we are positioning ourselves for well-being and success. 
But with back-to-school season soon (already?!) approaching, perhaps there is no better time than now to take a fresh look at some of the things that affect our mindset.
That’s why we have focused this month’s edition of The Conference in Your Inbox on all the good things you can do for yourself: to manage burnout, seize the upside of anxiety, and get clear on the habits that lead to happiness. 
With thanks to our Conference speakers who shared their insights and inspiration, happy reading!

Wendy SuzukiHow to Harness the Benefits of “Good Anxiety”

“The great benefit of healthy levels of anxiety is that it serves as a warning signal. It is there to say, ‘Hey, this is a challenging thing, pay attention,’ And if you respond to these warning signs appropriately, they can lead you to anxiety’s three superpowers.”

Wendy Suzuki, neuroscientist, and author of Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion

Dr. Jacinta JiménezDon’t Get Burned Out on Burnout! 

“We need to think about how to sustain success in the new world of work. We have to think of it as a marathon. It’s about staying in the stretch zone and not going into the stress zone. It’s also about recognizing when you go into the stress zone and, if it gets high, countering that with rest and recovery.”

Jacinta M. Jiménez, psychologist and author of The Burnout Fix

Arthur C. BrooksPractice These 7 Habits & You’ll Increase Your Odds of Long-term Happiness

“When work is over-emphasized in your life, the thing to do about that is not just work less. You have to add something instead. And that’s always relationships: friendship, marriage, kids.”

Arthur Brooks, Harvard University professor and author of #1 New York Times best-seller From Strength to Strength
