To be honest I had no idea what 'losing your mojo' meant and I had to look it up but now that I know what it is, it sounds about right).
Since just after Christmas I have found everything to be a bit of a struggle and I have really lacked motivation. I have been cutting back on my teaching and coaching to allow me to get on with other projects but, despite having more time, I have struggled to do anything with it. I haven't done anything with my craft business since March, I'm almost at a standstill with my blogging and I feel all Twittered and Facebooked out. The other thing I have done less and less of is exercise and that's primarily what this post is about.
I used to be very active. I danced, ran, cycled, competed on my horses, took my dogs for long, long walks and went to the gym 5 times a week but gradually, really since moving to the North East of Scotland a few years ago, I have become less and less active to the point of doing virtually nothing and I'm sure this is what's causing my lack of motivation. As we all know - exercise releases endorphins (the body's 'feel good' chemicals) and also decreases stress hormones so , to me, it makes sense.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I got on my exercise bike yesterday and after 20 minutes of moderate effort I could hardly stand. That's when the fact that I had become incredibly unfit really hit me! I was shocked and I made up my mind to go on a fitness push there and then but, I did feel much better for having done some exercise, albeit a very small amount and so I have set up a new Facebook page all about getting fit and living a healthy lifestyle. You can also follow my blog on the same topics at Indigo Horizons although I am still setting the blog up.
So, if any of you would like to get fitter and/or healthier and would like some company along the way then please visit my Facebook page and join in the fun. It's always so much easier when you don't have to do it on your own.
See you there!!
