Do you wake up some mornings feeling flat and uninspired? Perhaps some days start feeling dull or monotonous. It’s okay. I’ve been there, too.

Let’s face it–it’s hard to give 100 percent all of the time. It’s downright impossible. Getting things done is hard when your mojo is missing. Right?!

But when you’re in “the zone,” lookout because it’s like a magical force is propelling your forward, so you reach new heights. I understand that, too.

We all experience days where our brains feel unplugged and our productivity is zero. Why? Because we’re human. And every human loses their energy and motivation at some point. 

(Clarification: If you identify as a superhuman, you’re good and don’t need to read any further. Carry on. There is nothing to see here.)

BUT…if you relate to lackluster days or running on empty, then stick with me to unpack three mojo restoration tips you’ll want to try.

Reconnect: From doing random acts of kindness to catching up with a colleague–you’ll find inspiration and encouragement when you take the focus off your situation. Spend time looking up, too. Share your heart with God and ask Him to give you motivation. (See Jer. 33:3, I Chron. 16:11)

Reboot: Take ten uninterrupted minutes to write out all the thoughts swimming in your head. Pause for a minute. Then start organizing and prioritizing. If you’ve been trying to do everything on your own strength, then you’ll want to invite God into partner with you. (See Psalm 25:4-5) Look for what might be missing. Once you understand what you need, determine your next steps.

Reflect: Past experiences and accomplishments possess hidden benefits. Recall previous successes and hurdles, so you’ll uncover ways to reach beyond your true potential. Reflect on the process you went through and the results you experienced on projects. Reliving your successes and failures will teach you the value of remaining persistent despite obstacles. (See James 1:2-4 & Gal. 6:9)

Remember, losing your mojo is only temporary. Take time to reconnect, reboot, and reflect. You’ll be there in no time.
