Does the word “languishing” resonate with you? Adam Grant, Wharton Professor, describes languishing as a state of being where one is not quite depressed, yet also not moving into an area of flourishing. When languishing, we lack coping mechanisms, feel overwhelmed, and struggle with burnout. Negative emotions abound, and life is not lived in “full color,” but more in a “grey scale” fashion. We run out of energy, motivation, and the resources to help ourselves. When asked how we are doing, we may describe ourselves as feeling merely “meh.” All of us possess the potential to languish as we find ourselves in challenging situations, such as we have during this historic pandemic. Fortunately, research teaches us that resilience is less about the actual difficult circumstances in which we find ourselves, and more about how we choose to respond to these challenges.
Join Sandy Campbell as we review how we may have fallen into a languishing state individually and collectively over the past two years. We will then work to move from languishing to flourishing as we uncover our unique strengths and values. Relying on these discoveries, we will learn how to add more flow, meaning, and happiness into our lives. By setting a clear plan to move forward with true purpose and self care as a priority, we will learn how to strengthen our ability to not only bounce back, but thrive in 2022.
