Late 2015 I wrote a blog post on "Finding your Mojo". I wrote about some ideas that seemed to work for me back then, and help me spark more creativitiy. Since then I have come up with some other ideas that may help getting that creative spark going...
Cut back on TV A big one for me lately is the television I think. I must admit I have been watching a little Netflix, especially some of the series and binging on them tends to well.... take up a lot of time. I know itâ€™s difficult to do this but this is one of my main goals for next year.
Keep a journal. Write first thing in the morning or last thing at night. And please don't replace the writing for typing. There is something about writing that is therapeautic. And typing on a keypad sometimes doesn't tap into your real authentic sefl. When you do this be mindful of the actions, sounds and feelings that the writing evokes.
A little Dancing can do wonders
Play your favourite music and just dance the night away. if you don't want to be seen, make sure youâ€™re at home along. Dancing is great for the spirit and brings joy and happiness. It's also a good cardio workout.
Walk in the Rain
I must admit I'm not fond of rain, but a few weeks ago I was working from one building to the other at work and got caught in the rain. Instead of feeling frustrated, I rather enjoyed getting wet in the rain. It brought back memories of the rain smell, it cooled the air down and I noticed all the drops falling onto the ground. I guess it just awoke some awareness in me in relation to enjoying the simple things.
Create a Collage
Just grab some magazines and start cutting our phrases and images that resonate with you. Don't over think it - just cut and paste. In other words don't plan the placement and agonise of the layout.. Use some planner stickers with encouraging sayings like "Just Do It" "Today" Start Now" etc. Pin it up on a notice board or the fridge and it can be very inspirational.
Just spend some time with yourself in your own space, not interruptions, no noise just sit with yourself and shut your eyes and relax. You can burn candles or incense I often sit in my egg swing with candles on the table and just spend time with myself.
I hoped this has helped and given you some more tips to find that long lost mojo....
Til next time Julie
