Mums' Revive Retreat

Do you keep telling yourself that one day you'll take a weekend off to do something for yourself?

But then you think to yourself, NO I can't because ...

I'd feel too guilty spending that much money on myself.

The house would fall apart if I was gone for a whole weekend.

Who'd look after the kids and run them around all weekend?

The very fact THAT your first thought was worrying about everyone else is exactly why you NEED to get away.

What about a Mums' Revive Retreat two whole nights without you having to plan a thing just relax, reconnect, learn and laugh so that you return home revived?

It's not your fault that you haven't been able to prioritise yourself. A mums entire way of being is focused on making sure everyone else is ok first.

But unless you start to prioritise yourself you will not be able to continue giving to those around you. As the saying goes 'you can't pour from an empty cup.'

Mums’ Revive Retreat is so much more than a girls weekend away. It’s a weekend without the stress of planning and organisation. It’s a weekend to relax, reconnect and return home revived.

You'll also return with some strategies to help you better cope when life feels overwhelming.

Here's what you'll get:

  • two amazing nights sleep in a bed all to yourself, no kids crawling in next to you.
  • plenty of free time for yourself to do whatever YOU like.
  • healthy cooked meals, snacks and drinks prepared for you, no need to lift a finger.
  • a variety of activities such as yoga and meditation with a surprise Saturday night activity that will have you laughing and feeling good about yourself (I promise no team building activities).
  • picturesque location in Anglesea only 300m from the beach to explore or just sit back and admire with a cuppa or glass of wine.
  • enjoy pampering with a massage or beauty treatment from the comfort of the house.
  • plenty of space with two living areas and two decks to help you relax and unwind.
  • four bathrooms that you can enjoy without kids in tow.
  • two 1 hour workshops delivered by a qualified wellness coach to help you prioritise your health and wellness.

I’ve created the Mums’ Revive Retreat to give you a space to allow you to recharge without the stress of planning and organisation so that you can completely relax and feel revived to return home simply happy.

When and where is it?

  • Anglesea, Victoria
  • Friday 26th July, Saturday 27th July & Sunday 28th July

The Mums’ Revive Retreat will allow you to completely relax, learn, laugh and connect with others so that you feel revived when you return home just like these other mums.

I know making this decision is going to bring up a lot worries for you. You're not alone so here are some of the most common ones.

How do I not feel selfish about doing something for myself?

  • It is only natural to feel this way because we are so use to always putting everyone else first.
  • By taking some time out you are also reconnecting with yourself so you can be the best possible mum you can be.
  • You will learn some strategies to help you cope better as a mum.
  • Remember a happier mum is more fun to be around.

Who'll look after the kids?

  • Give your partner the opportunity to spend quality time with his kids.
  • I am sure there will be lots of fun and spoiling over the weekend.
  • You might even be surprised how well your partner steps up to the job.
  • If all else fails I will send you a 'Dad Proof' checklist to help you feel at ease that everything that needs to be taken care of will be done.

How can we afford it?

  • We are quick to invest in our kids sporting opportunities even new shoes that they need but when it comes to our own needs we put them last. By prioritising yourself you are reinforcing to your kids how important you really are.
  • How long have you been running on empty? You can't afford to not take up this opportunity to recharge and revive yourself.
  • There is an initial deposit of $180.
  • If you put away a small amount each week you'll be able to pay the next instalments on the 15th of each month.
  • The balance can be paid over monthly payments after the deposit.

Who's organising the Mums' Revive Retreat?

Hi, I’m Narelle a teacher, wellness coach and busy mum to two children. My son was recently diagnosed as Autistic which means I need to be extremely patient and mindful of things that overload his senses. I’ve had to make sure my cup is full to be able to continue to give to him and the rest of my family. 

As a wellness coach, I help working mums who are always on the go but the constant juggle is taking a toll on their health. I help them to create space in their calendar to do the things they want to do. The Mums’ Revive Retreat is an opportunity to have some respite, time to relax and fill your cup. You’ll also return home with some strategies to help you better cope when life feels overwhelming. 

What is included?

Accommodation

Twin share accommodation with king single beds for 8 people. Why not come with a friend. There’s also the option of one single room with queen bed for an extra $80. The home is located in beautiful Anglesea, so ideal for exploring the beach and the bush. Huge living areas with open fire place, dining areas, two deck areas and four bathrooms.
