HOW TO PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN YOU’VE LOST YOUR MOJO

We all have those days, weeks, sometimes months where we lose motivation, inspiration and everything else in between. Im currently having a tough two weeks and desperately trying to turn things around..

Im struggling to do the basic tasks that my job role requires. Everything feels like a chore and if I’m honest, I simply don’t want to do them. It may be because I’m really busy with other avenues, it may be because its suddenly getting colder and the afternoons are darker, but whatever it is, its pissing me off.

I can’t put my finger on what I’m feeling entirely. I guess its a mixture of things. I feel inadequate, lethargic, insecure and overwhelmed, but to put it frankly, I’ve lost my mojo! & I want it back. Im usually on top of everything, I’m sleeping enough, eating good, flat is clean, emails are replied to, posts and videos are scheduled & my to do list is decreasing every day. However, the last few weeks I’ve felt like I’m sinking and I can’t manage anything in my life. I mope around feeling slightly lost & anxious. Im even going through a stage where I’m questioning if I’m good enough & I’m doing that dreadful thing where I compare myself to others (we all know its a downward spiral from here).

Its Thursday morning & I’ve cancelled todays social plans because I just can’t cope with them. I need to sort myself out and pull myself together so I’ve decided thats what I’m going to do today. No more laying in bed crying, no more looking at other peoples blogs and deciding mine is shit, no more picking myself apart because I don’t feel good enough. 

Here are ways to pick yourself up when you’ve lost your mojo.

Give yourself a talking to

Stand infront of your mirror, look yourself dead in the eyes and say ‘PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER. YOU ARE A STRONG INDEPENDENT WOMAN WHO DOES NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS BULLSHIT’. Lol, try it. It really does work. Mainly because you cant quite believe how ridiculous you sound so you end up laughing.

Make a healthy, yummy breakfast

I know when you’re feeling down your first thought is to ransack your kitchen and eat chocolate for breakfast but sometimes, doing that can make us feel worse. Make a delicious breakfast instead. I go for scrambled eggs on toast with vine tomatoes and some orange juice. Start the day as you mean to go and all that.


Get off social media

Social media is usually great but for days like this, its time for a digital detox. Stop scrolling through your feeds and start scrolling through your mind. Jot down ideas for work, write down how you feel. Watch your favourite movie. If you have to turn your phone off, then do it. We are a technology obsessed world and sometimes we need a break from that side of our life. Not everything on the internet is real so get off it and find what is.


Pick up a good book

This is probably one of my favourite things to do when I need to find myself again. I immerse myself into a book – usually an inspirational story or a self help one. With a face mask on I’m going to plonk myself on my sofa, with a fluffy blanket and read The Twentysomething Guide To Getting It Together: A Step By Step Plan For Surviving Your Quarter Life Crisis. Seems fairly appropriate doesn’t it lol? I’ve also linked below other books that tickle my fancy.

Go for a walk to just breathe

Im not going to preach to you to exercise because when you’re feeling like a lazy sad slob thats the last thing on your mind but what I am saying is, get out and just breathe. Put on your comfiest trackies and your coolest trainers & walk. Stick your headphones in, put Spotify on and take big deep breaths. Its gonna be okay ♥


Look back at your achievements

Take some time to pat yourself on the back and big yourself up. You’ve done some amazing things this year and thats all because you believed in yourself. Just because you’re feeling lost right now, doesn’t mean that you can’t be found. Look at what you can do when you put your mind to something? You’ve got this.

Tell yourself its okay to feel this way

As humans we often strive for perfection. We want to be the best and constantly on our A-Game but thats the problem, as humans, technically thats not how we are supposed to operate. Just chill for a moment and understand the real reasons you are feeling like this & tell yourself that its okay. We can’t be happy as larry all the time can we? Don’t be too hard on yourself, you’re doing better than you think.


Cry it out

Sometimes a big fat cry is all we need. I often hold in my emotions because I’m too busy to face them or I don’t want to ruin my makeup (I’m serious) and then it all gets too much and I have a complete meltdown, and usually after a meltdown I feel fine. A cry is a release so don’t be ashamed to let those tears flow. Invite your bestie round, make a giant mug of hot chocolate and cry your feelings out together.

Light your favourite candles & stick on your favourite playlist

Ain’t nothing like chilling with some soulful sounds and the subtle whiff of a Jo Malone candle is there? Sometimes we just need a little background noise & some dim lighting to help relax our minds. Do it just before bed tonight and you’ll sleep easier – I promise.


Talk to someone

Remember the days we used to get out and interact with people. A loved one, a friend, maybe even the local shop owner? GO AND TALK TO SOMEONE. You don’t need to talk to Facebook or Twitter all the time, you need to talk to real people. Get in your car, or jump on the tube and visit someone. Take over a tin of biscuits and have a gossip like all of us love to do. Tell them how you feel and listen to how they feel. Laugh, cry and remember life is too short not to smile.


I hope this post has helped some of you who are feeling the same way as me..

Shop inspirational/self help books, comfy trainers & candles.

    Nothing beats hopping into your pjs, lighting your favourite candle (mine is currently a gingerbread scented one) and just unwinding for the evening. Quite possibly my favourite thing to do ever 🙂 X

    Yes, yes, yes. Everything about this post makes my heart sing. I've been losing motivation and feeling stuck or not enjoying things I usually enjoy, and it's the worst feeling! I've done some of the things you've recommended here in the past, but I'm definitely going to try everything else you've listed. This is really helpful, especially because I've just moved out on my own. I'm just really glad I've come across your blog, and I'll be reading it for the rest of my Sunday!

    I lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage . We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him . He is living away near his work and her and refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I didn't as its eating me away and I m starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Frank Ojo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. tow days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Frank Ojo . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com , Web site: http://lovespell2.yolasite.com . Mobile number +2348072370762. Thank you all for reading.

    Me and my ex-husband at all times have always tried to stay friendly over again after our divorce which occurred in early Jaunary this year. So i met with this spell caster called Dr aluda on the internet after a long search. And he told me everything that i needed to do, and he also assured me that he is going to reunite us in just 48 hours later after his spell casting. So he started his work on Monday 27th January . You are not going to believe this. He is back!!! Yes, he really came back in 48 hours just as you guaranteed Sir. Now I'm fully persuaded that you are a legit and authentic spell caster and your website is the best i have ever come across. This is so mind-boggling for me. Anthony is back!!! I haven't by any means experienced something like this before. Thank you so much Dr aluda. I never expected such a result. Dream come true. Wow! You were so kind with me. “And may your kindness float back to you like ripples that float back to sea shore”. Thank you Sir for your precious help. I have never been so happy in my life like the way i am today. You are a genuine spirit.You and your work will never be forgotten for making me a fulfilled woman and reuniting me and my ex husband once again.. You are my hero..

    there is this great spell caster in the states i just met through a friends description, and he have just helped me to get back my husband who left me for 2 years, I am so glad that i met with this spell caster, he is just in the US to help people and i am among those he have helped and i am telling you to also go and get hold of your own solution as he shall soon be living the the States, he said he was in the STATES to help his client. So i met with him and told him about how my husband left me.
    I visited his email address, after a friend talked about how she got help from him. After contacting him, then I found out he is currently in the US.
    It is even because his spell is so strong that is why someone invited him over, And through this medium he has brought home my husband with this spell powers. I contacted him, not up to 2 days, he told me that after 24 hours my husband would return back to me, and that day I was at work when my husband (Collins Mark toddle) called and said he is in the house,and i was so surprise when i really saw him and he just ask me to forgive him so that was how Dr aluda helped me to get my husband back to me so his email address is aludaspelltemple@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348063930531 if you still want him to help you solve your problems for you

    I’m having a hard time eating and anxiety. I’m usually the positive one in a crowd. But, I know when situations get to me, it affects my behaviors and tendencies. Introspection, identifying and “knowing yourself” have helped me come a long way. But, I still get downs every now and then.
