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.

Once you lose it, it is really hard to find the motivation to reclaim it. But you can't remain in that mojo-less place for too long, or your lost mojo might mushroom into an even worse state of mind.
