Languishing…maybe one of the most relatable moods of this last year?

“The absence of wellbeing..languishing is the vast, meh-coloured desert between flourishing and depression, a general condition of non-thriving”

You know you are languishing if you experience burnout, you feel numb, it’s hard to focus and your mojo has disappeared. And most important, it is a rational reaction to a very irrational year.

What to do about it? Small, but achievable challenges to relight your fire (according to the article).

Guardian article links to a NYT article hidden behind a paywall (if, like me, you’ve already used all your free views) which links to Corey Keyes original 2002 article on languishing “The Mental Health Continuum; From Languishing to Flourishing in Life”.
