COVID-19 Effects: Emotions and dealing with them

Updated: Sep 20, 2021

We recently ran a session with a Psychology teacher's perspective of her experiences. Lia Ray spoke about acknowledged global issues in mental health during the pandemic. Whilst stating that she wasn't a trained psychiatrist, Lia gave us language to use in identifying and indeed acknowledging mental issues. And, the fact that it was okay to feel the way we are but understand that as teachers and individuals we are doing the best we can and that aren't alone in our feelings.


We just came across this article " The dominant emotion of 2021": 6 signs you're 'languishing', and what to do about it" . The label that caught our eye was the phrase of 'languishing' .


" Languishing is a sort of ‘no-man's-land’ where a person feels as if their life is at a standstill. Or it’s very similar to feeling stuck in a rut or a limbo phase of life, where it feels as though nothing is moving forward," . "Languishing is a sort of ‘no-man's-land’ where a person feels as if their life is at a standstill. Or it’s very similar to feeling stuck in a rut or a limbo phase of life, where it feels as though nothing is moving forward," as the article quotes a psychologist Nancy Sokarno.


It is the buzzword for right now. We feel it and of course our students and their parents do too. As Lia in her session said we need to acknowledge our feelings but also realise that things are out of our control but stay connected. Anyway, we highly recommend you read the article and perhaps even listen to the session that Lia ran for us.


Stay well.
