But you feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start...
Being a mum is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world.
But let’s be honest: it’s incredibly hard work.
It’s tiring and it’s stressful.
Your brain is overloaded trying to keep track of what's happening on what days and who needs to be where.
Then there's the extra load associated with caring for children with additional needs.
You Desperately want to reduce the overwhelm from clutter so that you don't feel like you're drowning.
You dream of ...
Never missing appointments or events like school dress up days.
Eating more nutritious meals and saving money on groceries.
Getting a good nights sleep in an organised and free of clutter bedroom.
Being able to find things easily so you're not wasting money replacing items.
Having an area for toys that's easy to maintain.
And that’s where I come in…
Hi, I’m Narelle, a Wellness & Organisation Coach and Yin & Nidra Yoga instructor. I help individuals and families with additional needs or organisational challenges to implement simple organisational strategies so that they can create a clutter-free, safe and functional home.
How do I know?
As a mum and supporting families and children on the autism spectrum like my own I know first-hand the challenges of carrying the extra load associated with caring for children with additional needs. The extra mental load can start to take a toll on your confidence, self-esteem and health.
I now understand the importance of rest and making sure my cup is full to be able to continue to hold space for my family.
But it wasn’t always this way…
I was addicted to busyness and the adrenaline from ticking off my to-do list.
Maybe you can relate??
I validated my worthiness from how busy I was.
I still get stuck in busyness at times but it’s usually, to move through emotions like sadness or anger faster.
Being a wellness & organisational coach, Yin & Nidra instructor with a Physical Education teacher background of over twenty years I know the importance of staying healthy both mentally and physically. But I still need to remind myself daily of how being BUSY impacts my health.
So, how can I help...
We all have those quirky little things about us that makes our friends either think we’re totally weird or makes them say “OMG I DO THAT TOO”. So I thought I’d share a few of mine:
I love pineapple or anything that sounds like a tropical holiday.
I hate seagulls and kids that chew chewy and really strong perfumes (hmm no wonder my children also struggles with sensory processing issues).
I love nothing more than a good book, camping with friends, hiking huge mountains and hot days.
I hate putting cutlery away.
I love listening to podcasts.
I like to savour moments in time from photos.
I am terrible at leaving the house on time, I am always trying to do one more thing before I leave.
I love to make lists and lists and more lists…can you tell?? (because it’s a list)
I won’t leave home without my pillow, a book, lavender and my apple headphones.
I hate coffee but love white tea with half a sugar, from a teapot, in a warm cup.
I love having a good laugh and an organised home (not surprising the work I do).
Do you have any weird quirks? Do you share any of mine?
I’d love to hear from you come and join the conversation on my social media pages.
