Do you ever find yourself feeling blah, distracted, lacking motivation, or stuck in a stagnated state? Have you noticed that instead of completing one task from start to finish, you find yourself mindlessly binge watching a TV series, while scrolling through social media, or frequently checking messages on your smart phone? If so, you could be feeling the setbacks of languishing.
Over the past year, the pandemic has caused many of us to experience languishing through increased feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Languishing can disrupt our focus and create a collective discomfort of grief. Languishing can have an even bigger impact on individuals who are already experiencing a chronic mental illness, like the clients we serve.
Perhaps it is time to redefine our routines, find new challenges, create enjoyable experiences and meaningful work. Give yourself uninterrupted time and set boundaries, and focus on small goals. In your search, don’t forgot to find your joy.
So how do we help prevent our clients from falling victim to the setbacks of languishing?
At Channel Marker, we are assisting our clients to cope with the effects of languishing by connecting them with resources and natural support systems. We promote activities that are beneficial to their mental health and overall well-being that include social activities, healthy nutrition and weight loss groups, self-care, and education on ways to bring balance to their lives. Participating in our mental health and wellness support services gives our clients a meaningful purpose and brings happiness and joy to their day-to-day lives.
Your financial support will enable us to continue to be a vital resource for our clients and help them to achieve momentous wins that empower them to thrive!
