From Languishing to Flourishing

was amazed at the serendipity when I opened the New York Times this morning and read Adam Grant’s article “There’s a Name for the Blah You’re Feeling: It’s Called Languishing.”

In it, he describes the feeling of languishing, something between not-quite hopeless depression, but far-from-thriving flourishing that he and millions of others have felt the past year during the pandemic. The reader comments to the article lit up with agreement and relief that readers weren’t alone in feeling joyless, listless, and aimless this past year.

In a word, millions of us are languishing.

The timing couldn’t have been better.

Watch as I talk with Lee about what an integral approach to flourishing looks like, and what we know about the science of getting out of languishing.
