Lost Your Mojo? 10 Ways to Get Your Groove Back

Remember how it felt on your best days when you were twenty-five?

The world was your oyster.

You were full of energy.

You didn’t have too many responsibilities.

You were probably turning a few heads and tripping the light fantastic.

Your mojo cup was full to the brim.

How’s that cup looking now?

Are you down to the dregs?

You don’t have to be old to feel the effects of mojo depletion.

I felt it for the first time at age 32 after the birth of my first child. I was overweight, tired, milky, and my bangs had been cut way too short.

I looked like a plump squirrel and felt that life as I had known it disappeared with my 21-inch waist. My mojo was no mo’.

The word “mojo” derives from an African language and relates to magic and spells to generate luck and power.

In today’s language, the word still refers to a  source of vigor, energy, sexual potency, and power.

If you are feeling depleted, overwhelmed, stressed-out, frumpy, tired, bored or lethargic, you may have lost your mojo.

13 Practical Steps To Sustained Inner Peace

Unflappable inner peace.

That is such a wonderfully descriptive phrase.

We have all known people who have found internal peace. They exude an inner calm even in the most trying circumstances.

They are fully present with everyone — gentle and accepting of themselves and others. They are slow to anger.

Even their faces look serene, open, and content. When the world is storming around them, they maintain equilibrium and calm with a strong center to support them.

However, most of us have lives so over-scheduled that we are always frantic and preoccupied. It’s hard to relax or fully enjoy life with all of the distractions and upsets.

So many of us exist in a cloud of internal and external chaos.

You probably know people who are prone to creating problems and crises. They even get off on the drama in a weird, unhealthy way. But inside they feel anxious, unsettled, and rarely content.

In a culture that venerates busyness and constant stimulation, you have to make peace a priority if you want to reap the benefits.
