As we continue to navigate the global pandemic, many have become numb or indifferent to the challenges we face and manage on a daily basis. For many, we’ve entered a state of rinse and repeat with a lack of simple motivation or enthusiasm. This state of stagnation with feelings of emptiness is known as languishing.
In support of our customers and your employees across the country, on Tuesday, June 15th and Thursday, June 17th, Homewood Health will be hosting a webinar focused on languishing and its association with poor mental health:
COVID-19: What is Languishing and Why is it Important? Hosted by Sandra Primiano
In this session, Homewood Health will discuss the impact languishing has on our mental health, while providing tools and tips to manage our current experience with the COVID-19 pandemic.
