Ten Ways To Get Your Mojo Back

Mojo gone missing? Lost your va-va voom? I’m a naturally upbeat person but I get blindsided by an attack of the blahs every now and again and I know how hard it is to find the motivation to get back on track.

So here’s my go-to mojo lifting list.

Move!

Mojo is energy and sometimes energy gets stuck. Any kind of movement is good – even better if it’s outside and you can bank some vitamin D at the same time. Being in nature always lifts me and gets me out of my head into a better space.

Do Yoga

Obviously you’d expect me to say this but it’s true! Just get on your mat, you always feel better for a bit of yoga. Backbends are brilliant for lifting the energy and inversions are excellent for shifting perspective. Yoga Journal is a good online resource for quick and easy classes like this 30 minute standing and back bending sequence.

Just Dance

I love to dance and when my mojo is flatlining I completely forget about the uplifting power that a great dance track has. Make a playlist of your favourite get outta my way where’s the dance floor tracks and get your groove going! You can check out my Kitchen Disco playlist here. More »

Life is Short – Celebrate Now!

Happy endings are overrated…

I think that happy endings are overrated. What about the happy now? A couple of events late last year woke me up to the fact that the future isn’t guaranteed. Life is meant to be lived now, not in some faraway future.

So forget retiring and finally getting to enjoy your life. Forget winning the lottery. Forget about about how amazing life will be when you finally get that big promotion/bonus/set up your own business.

This is it. There is no past, no future. Only now. THIS moment is special. But for some reason we often wait for some special occasion or reason to celebrate….

The champagne story

When I was a teenager, my father was given a magnum of Perrier Jouet in a beautiful hand painted bottle. Never one for delayed gratification I wanted him to open it straightway but I was told we had to wait for a special occasion. More »

Why do yoga?

You’ll shine!

Yoga creates an amazing energy that gives you glowing skin, a positive presence, makes your confidence soar and is all round good for creating a kick ass life. You’ll strengthen and tone your muscles, balance your hormones and boost your immune system.

Unleash your inner super power

Ok so you won’t be able to leap tall buildings but you will get stronger and more flexible. Your posture will improve – you’ll walk taller and carry yourself differently. You’ll be more confident, less stressed.

Sleeeep tight!

Yoga is fantastic for tackling insomnia. One of the first benefits my students report is that they fall asleep more easily, sleep better and wake rested – ready to take on the new day.

It’s a natural high

Need a buzz without the caffeine? Do yoga regularly and notice the natural high and energy lift you create. More »
