It happens to all of us – you’re in a funk, you’re unsure where to go next, and you feel that you’re missing the zest you usually have for life. Missing your Mojo. Maybe you’re in between commitments or you’re just having trouble staying motivated. Whether it’s in reference to work, relationships, or personal well-being, Chicago Life Coach Diane Overgard has a few ideas to help you refresh your outlook and propel you forward.
1- Get comfy. Put on your favorite soft sweatshirt or comfortable jeans. Pay attention to how your mood shifts. Changing something tangible – like your clothes – can be the first step in changing your mood. I put on my soft slippers and instantly feel less weight on my shoulders.
2 – Get out of your head and into your body. Move! Particularly outdoors. Go for a walk after it rains or jog around the neighborhood while the sun is setting and enjoy the fresh air. So many of my Life Coaching clients say, “I think too much.” Thinking is important, but sometimes movement is needed to boost us out of a rut to see life from a more positive perspective.
3 – Claim a life experience. Do something that matters to you or to someone else. Learn something. Care for something – or someone. Spend an hour at the humane society, or just visit the puppies at a pet store. Volunteer. Enroll in a yoga class or an art class and try something entirely new. Treat yourself to a simple picnic at a forest preserve. Watch a documentary about an issue that intrigues you. Get passionate about your life experiences.
Get comfy, get out of your head, get involved and get your Mojo back! Do you want more insights about getting to a better place in your own life? Contact Life Coach Diane Overgard or browse the 45 Degrees Coaching website at www.45degrees.org.
