322: How to stop languishing and create more drive

We’re excited to dive into the topic of languishing. It was a topic inspired by one of our community members, Steph.

Stuff we talked about…

  • The difference between a flourishing mindset and a languishing mindset from a psychologist’s perspective. Listen to Episode 231: Create a flourishing mindset with psychologist Ellen Jackson
  • At the beginning of COVID lockdown when we were forced to slow down, it was kind of a good thing because we were given permission to do nothing and simply take a rest. Many of us got into this routine of inactivity and used the time to refill up our energy.
  • Overcoming the feeling of languishing involves refinding a purpose to remotivate yourself and then move forward. 
  • If you’re feeling stuck, take any step to get you out of the situation you’re in right now. 
  • Self-awareness is the key to quickly move out of your languishing feeling. If you can recognize this feeling, you have taken your first step.
  • Get the right kind of help and talk about your struggles with someone you can trust. Making a plan also helps to create motivation.
  • Get a coach or an accountability partner to help you get things done.
  • We talk about Kevin Basham and how he is helping us with an SEO project, we’ve interviewed him before on episode 317!
