Have you been 'languishing' lately?
Just before the first wave of the pandemic in 2020, I remember scurrying to stock up on books, art material, and board games and signing up to a couple of new online courses to avoid boredom and continue to be productive and keep myself entertained in small ways. And I was quite enthusiastic - trying out new recipes, doing miniature paintings, catching up on my reading, having online catch-up sessions with friends. But the new wave of pandemic has me zoned out completely. Like it's a huge effort to even get out of bed on some days. In fact, I had to take a whole week off a while back just because I couldn't focus at all. And I know I'm not alone - many of my friends and colleagues say they feel the same way and some of you guys too may be experiencing this. If it's some consolation - you're not alone! The whole world is apparently feeling pretty much the same way - and what's more, this state of mind has an official name now! Have you been 'languishing' lately? Type YES or NO in the comments below. And if you're up for it, we'd really like to know more about your version of 'languishing' and what you're doing to stay afloat?
