There Is a Word For This
Languishing feels as if you’re muddling through, looking at life through a foggy windshield,
AND you are not alone!
Many are struggling with the emotional long-haul of the pandemic. The uncertainty, along with the collective experience of intense fear and grief. Psychologist Adam Grant identifies this as the mainly misunderstood, 'middle child' of mental health.
Even as fear and grief begin to fade into resignation, we're left feeling stagnate and empty - devoid of interest - disconnected - lonely, isolated, listless. Even when there's plenty to do. Even when we're with the ones we love.
The issue with languishing is that a day turns into a week, weeks turn into months, months turn into years. Longitudinal research shows, if nothing is done to address the feelings, languishing is an excellent predictor of serious problems like physical illness, depression or anxiety.
Clearly, languishing is dangerous.
What is most alarming is the declining state of our Mental Fitness and Well-Being.
