Three ways to get your mojo back

by | Mar 5, 2021 | Blog, Lifestyle, Wellbeing | 0 comments

Also known as a zest for life, oomph, soul, energy, drive? 

On the outside you have things sorted. 

To your friends and family, you have it all. 

And you do, and it’s great, you’re grateful, but there is something missing. 

You can’t put your finger on it. 

You just feel kinda low, unmotivated a bit blah and bit neh, a bit frumpy, a bit beige like you’ve lost your mojo, your oomph. 

Words with no real meaning but yet if you’ve been there, you know what I mean. 

I know, because I’ve been there. 

What needs to shift? 

1. Curse of complacency 

Thing is, it’s easy to get complacent, cosy in that comfort zone that no longer serves you. 

Imagine a long hike up a mountain, you get halfway, rest, but then it’s hard to get up and get going again, knowing you want to get to the peak, but it’s cosy at the pit stop. No more oomph left to get going again. 

You may be stuck in a job you don’t like, a relationship, a body you’ve neglected and don’t like but have also become quite used to it and the urge is not really there anymore to do anything about it. It’s become like a worn-out cosy cardigan, a friend, a companion, but still, you complain about it; every day and deep down you know it’s time to say adios old friend. 

Something needs to change, but there’s also a lot of fear attached to making that change. 

What if my partner doesn’t recognise me? 

Will I get another job? 

Will my friends think I’m vain when I look and feel great and never complain about my weight? 

Will I fail? 

It may be time to face that fear, notice it as a mental state and not a real threat, lose that crowd and start beating to your own drum. 

2. How badly do you want to change? 

We want so many things; more money, fitter bodies, healthier-looking skin, more time, more headspace. 

None of these things can be bought with one click. It takes time, effort, work and a real hunger for change. If not, you can forget it. 

So many women I have worked with wants instant results, getting on the scale every day, starving themselves for a week, going to the gym for 21 days straight, only to give up very soon after. 

The results are not coming quick enough, it’s easier to stick to the midnight feasting, Netflix bingeing and many many more excuses like they’ve lost their oomph! 

Real change, comes with real desire, kick-ass aligned action and being ready to live as that woman who has zest, spunk, oomph, drive and energy. 

Who would you be when not feeling bleh and neh and urgh?? 

What would you achieve? 

What would you do differently in your life? 

How much do you desire the change? 

3. Stop looking for answers from ‘others’ 

Yes to asking for help, a big fat NO to believing some guru or Instagram influencer has all the answers to your well-being questions. 

Do you trust your inner wisdom? 

Another diet, another pill, another piece of gym kit, another round of lipo, another pair of shoes? 

No one knows you better than you. 

Your moods, your body, your highs and lows. 

When we get stuck in our heads, constantly trying to figure things out, strategise our way out of a situation, mood or mode we tend to end up where we started, which in my case always ended up in buying more books, more courses, hiring more coaches and searching the internet for answers until I went doolally. (Because I never listened to them anyway, why, because I’m a free-spirited, wild-hearted woman who will always do what I want anyway.) 

Only when you make time to be still, to pause and ask yourself what you really want, how you want to show up and what it is that you need and trust your inner wisdom can the shift start happening. 

So as you can see, I’m not talking about adding vitamin D, A or B-vitamins (although those will help) but not if they’re used as a plaster for what’s going on in your inner world. Your inner world where the real shift needs to happen. 

Yes, when you feel better about yourself, you will start eating better, moving more, making more of an effort and who knows the excess weight you’ve been carrying may also miraculously melt away without restrictions or dieting but with an injection of life, love, energy and massive self-belief and trust. 

To step out of the funk that you’re in, you need a different approach, not some cookie-cutter 7 step process. 

Someone who will meet you where you’re at, with no agenda of their own, a guide, a teacher a coach. Someone who can help you see your blind spots and shine a massive spotlight on your amazing qualities that you may have become to not believe or trust anymore. 

If you’re ready to RISE, shake off the dust and make the best of this one wild and precious life then get in touch. 

I work with women who have lost their zest for life to feel happier, healthier and more confident than ever before. We don’t get a second chance, this is it. You can choose to stay in the comfort of the ‘yes it’s ok’ or you can choose to take action. 

It may seem scary and unknown, and that’s ok, normal in fact, yet you have a choice. Stay or rise? 

I offer three, six or nine-month programs to help you shift the funk and rise! I can help you manage stress better, eat better, stop overeating, mindless eating and start moving in a way that feels delicious. Become an intuitive eater, start trusting your inner wisdom, your guidance and knowing. 

This may be a time of change and uncertainty, you don’t have to go at it alone. 

This is deep transformational work, what you eat is a small part of the whole picture, but when neglected along with so many other things can have a tremendous effect on your wellbeing.

How much do you care about you to start giving a F*ck?
