In this lively 30 minute podcast from the Centre for Public Christianity, the presenters discuss with psychologist Dr Valerie Ling ways in which we can look after ourselves and others, when feeling jaded and low in spirit.

"Feeling a bit blah mid-way through 2022… still? 

In 2021, organisational psychologist Adam Grant named that pandemic feeling. He called it “languishing” and described it as “the absence of well-being”. 

“You’re not functioning at full capacity. Languishing dulls your motivation, disrupts your ability to focus, and triples the odds that you’ll cut back on work,” he wrote in the New York Times. 

In this episode of Life & Faith, we call it something else: pandemic fatigue. Or just “not coping”. "
