Add more moments of pausing, deep breathing, soft thinking, slow living and intentional rest into your day. Be your own medicine. Nourish yourself one gentle breath and one replenishing ritual at a time” Carole Fogarty

For years now I’ve crafted daily prompts right here at Rejuvenation Lounge.  Bite size reminders of divine rejuvenating rituals.

Simple, I can do that kinda rituals.  Easy practices that over time – when strung together – day after day – can and will make a huge difference to your health, sanity and life.

Half the time I’m sure I’ve written them  for myself.

In fact I know I have!

This post is purely a reminder to old friends (of Rejuvenation Lounge) and an introduction to new ones (hello!) to drop by often and check out  the daily prompts page.

Zip over whenever you’re feeling challenged, exhausted or simply need a few moments of “you” time.

You can click here and check out the past 2 weeks rejuvenating rituals.  I’ve kept them up on-line for you.

You might also like to download Rejuvenation Lounge’s relaxation manifesto.  It’s free.

Which ritual tingles in your tummy?

Notice which ritual grabs you by the shoulders and shakes you. Stops you mid sentence and leaves a tingly feeling in your tummy. You need that ritual.  That ritual is your medicine. Whether its just for today or the rest of the week, month or year.

If you happen to be curious, my new personal rejuvenating ritual – is knitting.  Yep, knitting!

When I’m in need of a pause, I walk away from the screens and grab my needles and knit.  As I settle into the rhythm of moss stitch (knitting another cowl scarf) everything gradually becomes a little calmer on the inside.  I’m back. In my body. Reconnected.

You can check out my latest slow knitting adventures on instagram.

I so love the idea of Slow Clothing.  Gosh, I’ve even dreamed of doing a Slow Yoga and Knitting Retreat. Just waiting to manifest a passionate knitter. Perhaps its you!

Here’s my recent daily prompt on knitting:

Knitting is the new black!  A soothing pause.  A dash of slow – stitched into a busy day.

Knitting infuses your spirit with a healthy dose of slow living, patience, calmer thinking and delicious creativity.

Knit your way to relaxation – one therapeutic stitch at a time.  xx Carole

Pause.  Relax your breath.

Inhale some dazzling yellow deep into your cells.

See, sense or feel the yellow soaking effortlessly through your skin and into the length of your spine.

Yellow is incredibly rejuvenating for your nervous system (aka exhaustion) and strengthens the integrity of your core. xx Carole

Powerful Way To Protect Yourself:

March 18, 2014

If you’ve been run down (aka over doing it), low in energy (weak defences)  or constantly in challenging environments (vulnerable), you can unknowingly absorb lower vibrations of energy.  It happens. We get a little wobbly.  Thrown off centre.  Lose connection to our normally safe protected self. Sometimes –  unintentionally taking on  the fear, worry and/or confusion […]

Make A New Moon Wish:

February 28, 2014

Sprinkling our life with “ritual” brings a sense of “sacred” and being connected to something greater than ourselves.  I happen to believe  ”sacred” infuses a meaningful depth into our life. So without rambling on too much, I thought I’d share an exquisitely simple new moon ritual that I posted yesterday over on facebook. It’s a […]

The Medicine Of Five Slow Minutes:

February 12, 2014

“Small acts of slowness are medicine for a depleted body and exhausted mind” Do slow for five minutes. It’s medicine. Breathe slowly. Think slowly. Move slowly. Speak slowly. Listen slowly. Eat deliciously slowly. Look at your surrounds slowly. Really look at your surrounds with gentle slowness and expanded awareness. Pick anything you like and simply […]

Please Relax Your Face:

February 5, 2014

“Relax your face and the rest of your body will follow”   Many of us live excessively from our heads. We hold onto stuff. And it shows. Our face tells a story. We sometimes (often) carelessly age ourselves. Distort our appearance. Worry, anxiety, confusion, emotional hurt, feeling overwhelmed, panic, rushing, lack of sleep, resisting what is, […]
