Lost my mojo

I have completely lost my blogging mojo. No, I lie, I've also lost my housework mojo, actually I think I have actually lost my do-anything mojo.

This last week I have felt so flat. I think a combination of moving last weekend, being the week before 'that' time of the month and having a stuffy headcold is doing my energy in and throwing my emotions all out of whack. Absolutely drained is a pretty good term for how I'm feeling right now.

It also doesnt help that next month going to be ridiculously intense for me. I work for a festival and next month is THE festival, so this whole year we have been working towards the 3 weeks in September when we (somehow) pull it all together. So just thinking about that is not doing much to increase my energy levels at all.

Today my headcold kicked into overdrive and has knocked me out. I slept for 4 hours in the middle of the day today, now that is very unlike me.

So I have been upping the vitamins to try and kick whatever this rut is in the butt! I'm taking valerian to help me get a deeper sleep, a zinc, B6 and magneisum mix for the dreaded PMS, and LOTS of cups of tea and hot chocolate just because I'm in need of comforting. I am seeing a naturopath tomorrow to see what they suggest also.

What are your natural remedies that you swear by?


  1. Oh dear no motivation and a headcold not a good combination.

    Have you tried olive leaf extract? I've just started taking it again as a general tonic and to help ward off colds etc.

    Good luck with the naturopath and I hope you're feeling better soon :)

  2. Lemon and honey in boiling water - at night add a touch of brandy. Helps one sleep like a log!

    Your mojo is on a small sabbatical - I mean you've just moved to your new house (one of the recognised most stressful things in one's life), you have your festival ahead and you're not well. Go with the flow - do only what you feel like doing - your body is telling you to take things easy - follow your bodies requirements.

    Your mojo also needs a break now and then :-)

  3. Thanks for your comments ladies. I did have that thought on SUnday Dani, where I just thought "why not just give in a listen to my body", then slept for 4 hours, and now don't have any sign of the cold I had on the weekend. I am feeling a little better and more energised. After seeing the naturopath I am drinking dandelion root tea, changing some foods to better suit my blood type and taking and taking some mixes to get my digestion cleared out and back on track. I'm feeling much more positive and look forward to feeling less tired very soon!
    Thanks for your lovely words, they brought a little smile to my face, something that's been missing for a while :)
