From Stores >> Products Attribute Section: Enable Used in Product Listing to Yes for both Short Description and Description Attribute.

For Short Decsription, in your theme Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list.phtml file. You will find the below line. Set it as Yes

$showDescription = false;

For Description, use the below code in your theme Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list.phtml

<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getDescription(), 'description'); ?>
