Are you having a hard time describing how you’re feeling these days? Depressed is too strong a word, but unmotivated isn’t strong enough. That general blah feeling or phase has a name–languishing. And my friend and fellow mom of 5, Megan Hyatt Miller is here to tell us what we can do about it!
Languishing is like the neglected middle child of mental health, but a lot of people experience it. Especially now that we’re coming out of a pandemic and coping with stress in ways we’ve never had to before. That’s why I’m delighted Megan wanted to tackle this topic with me, which isn’t surprising because her work is all about helping us be our best selves.
Megan Hyatt Miller is the President and Chief Executive Officer at Michael Hyatt & Company and the co-host of the popular business podcast, Lead to Win. And she just co-authored Win at Work and Succeed at Life with her dad Michael Hyatt. This book is all about freeing yourself from the cult of overwork, so you can bet she shares some great advice and techniques about how to get back to ourselves.

If you’re coming out of 2020 like most people that I’ve talked to, with your tires on fire, you know you just sort of feel like we’re running on fumes and self care is all out of whack. Probably the place to start is not exercise and nutrition. As important as those things are and we talked about that some in the book, but the place to start really is with rest.
We’ve been going and going and going and using all of our reserves and just regular life has taken so much more energy that we are chronically exhausted and chronically depleted and we don’t even know it right now.
The temporary has a way of becoming permanent, and then it starts to take a toll on our health, our mental well being, you know, and health, and our most important relationships, and if we don’t catch it in time, then we end up in a situation where we have regret.
Work and life don’t actually have to be in opposition to each other, they actually can be mutually reinforcing and supportive of one another and there’s not magic to it, there is a process.
There isn’t enough time to do everything but there is enough time to do the most important things.
What does business coaching entail and how do I know if it’s right for me? (20:21)
