Lost your mojo?
It happens to the best of us but the first thing to do is not be so hard on yourself. It’s easy to say but sometimes a little bit of self love without it turning into a full on pity party, is good. Allow those meh emotions to come and then let them go. Nothing lasts forever, even this feeling, trust me.
I also think that wise words, and they are wise, such as, “If you don’t like it then change it,” aren’t particularly helpful because if you are like me when you are in a funk I immediately think, “Oh yeah I wish I had thought of that!” The point is, we know this but occasionally you just need a helping hand to get there.That mojo that I mentioned earlier, it’s what gives us confidence, which makes us smile, which makes us feel like we are making a difference. Therefore, it’s important to make sure we get this feeling back right?
5 TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR MOJO:
SPEND TIME WITH ONE OF THE MOST POSITIVE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE
Someone who makes you smile, who kinda makes everything better. I’ll tell you a secret, mine is my Nanna! Sometimes she is the best person to speak to as somehow nothing really matters, after a few words of wisdom and a hug only she can provide, all is right in the world again.
TAKE TIME TO BREATHE
I know, this comes up time and time again but taking some deep breaths helps you slow down. The moment you focus on your breathing for even just a few seconds, what you are worrying or thinking about is on hold. It’s kinda nice when that sick feeling goes away right?
REMEMBER TO HAVE FUN
It’s all too easy to slide in to that funk when you don’t want to move and you want to eat pizza all day. I get it, I’ve been there too. But try to remember that you can still have fun, do something which makes you feel good. Not what makes anyone else feel good. Meet some friends for lunch, go shopping, have a massage, anything which makes you feel nice.
GET SOME FRESH AIR
Go for a walk. Sometimes when you’re in that funk, do you really feel like exercising? I know I don’t! It’s probably the last thing I feel like doing so be gentle on yourself whilst you’re in this funk-out transition. A simple walk, getting some fresh air clearing those cobwebs and listening to chilled music can sometimes be just the trick.
REMEMBER, YOU ARE AWESOME!
Write down three things that you are proud of, things you have achieved. This is a simple exercise that provides immediate self-regard, happiness and dignity. Go on, try it!
