Is it burnout? Exhaustion? Disengagement? It’s a feeling people can’t quite put their finger on or understand exactly why. Lately, it seems difficult to feel motivated or joyful. If you’ve recognized similar feelings in yourself, you’re not alone. Organizational Psychologist, WorkLife podcast host, and NYT author, Adam Grant recently published an article that describes the unsettled, aimless, empty feeling many people are experiencing. Using this article, our host, Dr. Janet Pilcher, helps us name this blah feeling and provides tips to help individuals go from languishing to potentially flourishing.

- What is one way this blah feeling has brought people closer together?
