Description

'With his pioneering research, Corey Keyes put languishing on the map. In this powerful book, he brings it to life. Rethink your understanding of mental health, update your views on happiness and come closer to realizing your potential.'
Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential



Do you feel demotivated and aimless?
Are you running on empty?

Millions of us are struggling with this emotional state of weariness, and until now, we've lacked the vocabulary to understand it. But Dr Corey Keyes has identified this feeling as languishing, and here he draws on the latest research and real-life case studies to trace its spread to a level of global epidemic, asking the fundamental question of how we find lasting wellbeing.

Breaking down the science of emotional exhaustion, Keyes shows that our very obsession with happiness complicates the process of finding it. Only by shifting our focus from feeling good to functioning well can we unlock the key to flourishing. He reveals the choices and mental habits that inadvertently worsen the problem, and shares simple but powerful steps anyone can take to restore meaning, joy, and calm to their lives.
