Many of us are feeling anxious and depleted. Anxious about our country struggling with crazy politics, a divided country, the war in Ukraine, covid still effecting us, economic crisis, violence, social and racial injustices, and more. It is a lot to deal with. But one thing is certain: We have to learn to live together in love, peace and harmony.
And by feeling anxious, we often don’t feel like ourselves. Many of us feel like we’ve lost something. And some call this “Losing your mojo.”
What is mojo? It’s a word that is derived from African languages and relates to magic and spells to generate luck and power. Today, the word mojo still refers to a source of vigor, energy, sexual potency and power.
Have you ever lost your mojo? If you are feeling depleted, overwhelmed, overworked, stressed-out, tired, bored or lethargic,
You can begin to feel more energy and enthusiasm about yourself and all the world has to offer just by making some small life changes that will release the magic of your mojo.
I know what it’s like to lose mojo, but I’ve been able to reclaim it again and again: Living in a failed marriage, during a separation, as a single mom, financial crisis, being “laid off” from a job I needed but detested, losing my parents, recovering from a serious injury, surgeries. The list goes on and on, but the good news is that I’ve always been able to reclaim my mojo. And so can you!
Here are five action steps to help you reclaim your mojo when you feel that it’s lost:
- Address your stress and get unstuck. If you feel overwhelmed or just stuck, you can lighten your load and be aware of what is causing you stress. Journaling is a great way to address the source of your stress. Write at least a paragraph on how you’d like your life to change, and believe it – and your mojo will show up.
- Stay away from negativity. If you are serious about getting back on track you have to stay away from negativity. This includes toxic and negative people and negative talk. Keeping a gratitude journal will do wonders for your attitude.
- Have fun. Recall the things you did when you were younger that gave you joy. Grab a pen and paper and write down the fun things you did and circle the things that you’d like to do again. And start doing them!
- Start with baby steps. It’s easy to be overwhelmed. But one small step can help restore your confidence. With one step at a time you can conquer the unconquerable.
- Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to ask for help. Sometimes the simple act of asking for help from a friend, coach or counselor can be the boost you need for getting your mojo back. Speaking to someone can help you remember that everyone needs help from time to time and that no one can do it alone.
