Feeling Blah? You might just be “languishing”
August 6, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Adam Grant wrote an article in The New York Times titled There’s a Name for the Blah You’re Feeling: It’s Called Languishing. The concept of languishing is not a new one but it might be particularly relevant as we emerge from the pandemic. Languishing falls between depression and thriving. You don’t feel hopeless but you’re feeling stagnant, empty, joyless and directionless. In the early months of the pandemic your psyche was on high-alert but as this situation has dragged on you’ve felt more like you’re muddling through with your emotions dulled. So how do we pull out of this? “Flow” might provide one antidote. Flow is the experience of being so immersed in a meaningful activity that worries, time and self, melt away. New challenges, meaningful experiences and fully engaging activities are ways to create flow. Join us to explore way to enjoy flow and move from languishing to thriving.
