I'd like to say a big HELLO to everyone following me here and introduce myself to all the new faces 🙋🏻♀️ But first of all, THANK YOU for being here! 🤗
🤱 I'm a life coach for overwhelmed and exhausted new mums, who constantly doubt themselves and their abilities as a parent. I help them to take better care of themselves and listen to their intuition, so that they can embrace motherhood feeling content and confident 💜
Fun fact about me: Despite being a German currently living in Germany, I feel homesick at the moment!
Homesick for Australia 🇦🇺
My husband is Australian and I lived there for 5+ years before our daughter was born. All the summer photos of my Aussie friends and family make me want to jump on a plane right away ✈☀️🏖
Your turn! Tell me a fun fact about yourself. I'd love to get to know you better 💜
Stop comparing yourself to others. You are a unique wonderful person!!!
Often, I feel like I should be something different, doing things another way, being whatever the world around me thinks I should be.
I get anxious. I feel nauseous. The world isn’t clear in those moments.
What it feels like to be unaligned (for me):
Going through the motions.
Here’s what I know: I have to continue choosing the way that feels right to me. I have to keep myself grounded, alert and listening to the lessons surrounding me. I have to allow myself space, dispel the excuses, buckle down and realign. I have a few ‘emergency’ tricks up my sleeve, cultivated over the years, but this one is my go-to. ~ing writing (@gabbybernstein
Last night, I sat on the floor of my bedroom, cleared my thoughts, took a breath, and let pen flow to paper until I was out of room. When I returned to consciousness, I saw the words, a narrative, a reminder to ‘BE’. You soul knows what’s up, always.
How do you connect with the inner you (comment below)?
Are you happy about your body❓
Im a big believer that happiness comes from within. 🙂
Happiness is achieved when there is an absence of desire. When you lack desire, you are content with what you have right now and where you are going, and thus you are happy. 💡
We always want the next best thing. I'm ripped but now I want to be bigger! I can bench 2 plates but now I want 3! I just lost 5kg now I want to lose 10! Desire makes us unhappy yet we continue to chase things for happiness when it isn’t really a destination, but a journey. 🏃♀️
What makes you happy❓
just like the moon,
your greatest magic will come out in times of darkness
when you have no choice but to trust your own power. 🦋🌙 When times get tough babe, remember you are made of the same light as the stars. x x x .

Based on the modality that I work with, relationship challenges, stress, anxiety, learning and behavioural challenges can be related to many areas from thought patterns, emotional patterns and the physical body, where stored emotions can be triggered into activity again. This can be due to a number of things such as a traumatic event, stress, non action, action, or other factors.⠀
Between my studies, research and experience with my own clients and students, it has become even more clear how the body is part of the mind. There really is no way to separate the two. ⠀
Once we pay attention to what our bodies know, we have a much better chance of becoming whole again.⠀
I work in conjunction with you to implement the actions that will move you from where you are currently to where you would most like to be in relation to your current disharmony.⠀

✨Where are you allowing others to dictate how you feel about yourself? #letsgetreal
In business starting out as a solopreneur it can be easy to fall into feelings of rejection and not feeling good enough. You’re putting you and your dreams out there into the big wide world 🌎and that can be tough work. ⠀
Maybe you didn’t meet a client’s standards, or maybe you aren’t getting enough social media engagement like others, and you think fuck why is this happening to me? Maybe you’re putting your heart and soul out there and not receiving the response you expected. 💔⠀
This can trigger feelings of rejection and thoughts like “how come I’m not as successful as others”, “why don’t others like what I do”, “I’m just not good enough”. “I’m not worthy of success”. ⠀
This inner judge 🙈 can be enough to make you throw in the towel and give up on your daydreams because somewhere along the way you allowed others actions, comments, or external circumstances to dictate how you feel about yourself ✖️⠀
When this happens 👉⠀
✨ understand that no one can make you feel bad about yourself except for you (hello negative thoughts).⠀
✨ you are in control of how you feel about yourself and what you make these experiences mean.⠀
✨ ask yourself - what else could I make this mean instead (that’s positive and supportive to my growth?).⠀
✨label and be with your emotions that are triggered and feel them, don’t block or suppress them.⠀
✨practice self-love and self-compassion and keep showing up for you and your dreams for the right reasons (because you are connected to a deeper mission, not because you need acceptance and validation from others)⠀
Lady tell me what do you do when you get triggered into feelings of rejection? Let’s help eachother out in this crazy adventure called business and life 😜✨❤️⠀
10 Tips to Digital Wellbeing and Mindfully Disconnecting just went up on the blog. It feels so good to bring my little space on the web back with a new feel and expanded view that fully embodies who Chanelle is. I'm still learning who I am and what I stand for, but through sharing what makes my life feel unique and vibrant to me and seeing how that then inspires and impacts others is an amazing reward. Visit the link in my bio if you're interested ✨
This is a great mindset❤️. Don’t let anyone get to you... just move on‼️. Make sure you tag someone who needs to see this today🌟
I LOVE FEELING FABULOUS.
I love looking fabulous.
I love being the center of attention.
I love praise and words of affirmation.
I love winning.
And sparkly nails.
And shiny hair.
And beautiful things.
And I’m officially releasing any shame around that right. Now.
This is who I am and I LOVE who I am.
Don’t ever shame yourself for being who you are.
For wanting what you want.
For not being who think you should be.
Who you THINK people will like.
Who you THINK is a “good person”.
You are good enough exactly as you are.
You best self is simply just MORE of what you already are. ✨
What do you need to release to become MORE of your best self?
My journey with at home workouts started in 2012 when my then fiancé (now husband) decided we wanted to conquer the challenge of P90X. We bought it off Amazon (pro tip: don’t do that 🙅🏼♀️), bought some protein shakes, and started pressing play at 4:30 AM ▶️. We made it 60/90 days and then quit. But even in those 60 days without changing much of anything else, we got great results.
Fast forward to 2014 when my friend @kelsiemarie.ox
(who is now one of my coaches btw 👯♀️) sent me T25. I did the program straight through, once again not changing anything else, and got some killer results. Despite getting amazing results from working out at home 🏡, I still was an avid gym goer, that was until an ankle injury left me out of commission for 6 weeks and I knew I needed something to get back on track.
So that’s when I reached out to my coach @lilynicolecoaching
to not only ask about the workouts, but also the fact that I could workout, get healthy, and make an income from doing so 💵!? I was intrigued 🤔. It’s been over three years now since I made that decision and I am forever grateful because not only have I learned so much about health & fitness, I also gained:
A support system.
A mindset shift.
Debts paid off.
If any of those things are missing from your life or you think they will enhance your life in any way, let’s chat. Don’t let fear of failing, fear of what others may think, and fear of not being the “right” type of person hold you back from what could be the best decision you make for yourself, your family, & your future.
Just a little thanks for being by my side, protecting, guiding, supporting, annoying but most importantly, for always loving me through it all. No matter what, we will always overcome. Though it’s been a short time, it feels like even a lifetime, still won’t be enough. 💜 Remember, that with God as our foundation, nothing can break us down! 🙏🏼 Here’s to many more, challenges, adventures, journeys, and everything else life throws our way! 🥰

Good Morning Beautiful Souls⠀
We must start by allowing ourselves to be where we are. Children provide us the greatest example of this, have you ever watched children engage with their moments? They are fully present and invested in the moment, completely enthralled and joy flows like water. They only know love in their hearts. We are all born in this state of being, fully present and 'awake'.⠀
As we grow older, we are conditioned to start seeing the world differently. Learning that we need to be the best, in order to get the job, to buy us the things that make us happy.⠀
The further we drift from our essence, our heart and souls, the more we live our life in our minds. Which are often filled with fear, worry and regrets.⠀
As Charles Gluskin puts so beautifully, "why wait for some life-altering event to happen to inspire living life joyfully, and in the moment? Why not start showing up for our lives right now?!”⠀
If you would like to be supported in moving through those patterns that keep you away from showing up fully for yourself, reach out.⠀
I look forward to connecting with you.⠀

Im so set on helping others, convincing them to not worry about what others think... but Goodness me... I need to start taking some of my own advice... and today is that day! ✨
I like to think that I have always kept pieces of me true to who I am ... however I’ve realised more recently that I haven’t. I’ve played the game, dressed the part, kept my thoughts to myself. And not being true to who I am has done a LOT of other people favours and hasn’t always put me where I wanted or needed to be. And to be honest, I lost myself there for a bit
It’s had me pondering ... Why do we at times play this game? Pretend to be someone we aren’t. Is it to fit in? To feel connected? To find comfort? To boost our confidence?
As we move towards someone else’s ideal we move away from our own. We actually in turn become more disconnected. We get a bit lost, in search for outer experiences to fill voids. This past month I’ve made it my priority to connect back with me, it requires ongoing self-motivation and discipline but can I tell you, nothing is more liberating than giving back to you 😊
ALL BODIES ARE GOOD BODIES!
If you have bits that don't work.
If you have extra bits.
If you have bits that are soft.
If you have bits that are toned.
If you have bits that are missing.
If you have bits that jiggle.
If you have cellulite.
If you have abs.
If you have skin of colour.
If you are as pale as the moon.
If you have bits that are smaller than 'they' say they should be.
If you have bits that are larger than 'they' say they should be.
THEN YOU HAVE A GOOD BODY!
Enough with the diet culture.
Enough with the pressure to change.
Enough with the morals and justification surrounding the dinner table.
Enough with feeling less than.
It's been a hard month trying to focus on recovery when I'm surrounded by a world that teaches us to shrink for happiness.
Believe me, happiness doesn't live at the lowest ends of the scales!

Jor left early this week for a work retreat right when Charlotte had her first low temperature and wasn’t feeling tip top. I felt like I wasn’t just flying solo but was about to fly solo with one wing! Charlotte will be 5 months on Friday, and as her mama, we had yet to spend a complete day, from morning to night 100% on our own. Honestly, I was filled with more doubt than confidence Monday night when I said goodbye to Jor. We had a sick little one for the first time, I was nervous at every odd noise she made while sleeping and kept checking the monitor to triple check that was in fact still breathing despite a stuffy nose! I gave myself a moment to recognize that I was doubting myself and my ability to be both mama and daddy this week and then I simply took a breath. I breathed in the simple truth that I wouldn’t be Charlotte’s mama and I wouldn’t have to juggle this kind of week if I weren’t already prepared and ready for it. Sometimes that’s what it takes to get through doubt and that feeling of sinking your heels down deep, not wanting to move forward. You have to recognize what you already have, what you’ve already done and actually believe that you are enough for what’s in front of you! You have to believe that you can move forward, feel your way through the sticky spots and not get knocked over. Whatever doubt you’re feeling this week, recognize It and then keep walking forward and prove to yourself all that you are and all that you are capable of! .

I know this is easier said than done when in the middle of an episode, but I really do agree how much my overall happiness depends on me. When I’m doing well, I do things that fulfill me and make me smile and laugh, fun things, being good to my my friends and family, music, movies, travel, working towards goals, self care, helping others, running... All of those things I do when I’m not depressed, I feel are building an investment because they help remind me how much my life is worth living because most of the time, I really do love the good parts in life. Depression lies, try not to believe it. I wish I knew who the artist of this was to credit them 💙.

• Being human • 🇫🇷🇦🇺
Je ne sais pas pour vous mais à chaque début d’année je me mets une pression folle, entre les objectifs que je veux atteindre que ce soit pro et perso, la vie de couple et le quotidien... la semaine dernière j’étais déjà épuisée. C’est après avoir écouté un podcast très intéressant que j’ai changé mon état d’esprit car mes émotions étaient simplement humaines, je ne suis pas une superwoman et personne ne l’est non plus. C’est humain de se sentir débordé, c’est humain d’avoir peur, et c’est humain de ne pas toujours parvenir à ses objectifs. Cela ne veut pas dire que nous ne sommes pas compétents mais juste humains. Le plus important c’est de comprendre ces émotions et de trouver une balance. Ce podcast m’a également rappelé l’importance de vivre dans le moment présent. et vous comment vous vous sentez en ce début d’année? Bonne journée, Ana xx 💕
I don’t know about you guys but every single year, in January I put a lot of pressure on myself. Between my personal and professional goals, my couple life, being healthy, and my business I already felt overwhelmed and exhausted last week. Once again I thought that I needed to be perfect in every single area of my life. Last week I listened to a podcast from @case.kenny
and it was a good reminder that we are human. So it means that it’s alright to feel tired, to not be perfect, and to feel down sometimes. There is nothing wrong with that. The most important thing is to acknowledge why, and then we can figure out something. This podcast also reminded me the importance of living in the present moment. How are you feeling guys? Have a great day guys, Ana xx 💕

Checking in for a night of ginger tea, oversized sweatshirts, and Princess Bride wedding gifts. @kthostenson01
you’re the bomb.com!
Nighttime is for cozies and warm, snugs and hugs. There was a pizza before the tea and laughter after the mugs. I may or may not have been called ‘evil temptress’- I should have known better, he is relentless.
He kissed me like a princess.
Nighttime with your soulmate looks a lot like this. I am the comfiest, glamor-less queen I know, and he is my saving grace. SO THANKFUL for sweatshirts, tea, and the love in his eyes- time can move slowly tonight. 💕🌙☕️👑🧦💑 #princessbridequotes #mugquotes #teatime

This week’s #cookathomemonday
was delayed until Tuesday because I was traveling. Domestication isn’t my strong suit, but I manage to cook at home on Mondays when I need a reset from the crap I ate over the weekend. Unhealthy food = bad anxiety, even though I love it so much. So, if I’m going to eat healthy it has to taste good too. I’m still on my quest to #becoolenoughforaswipeuplink
, so the link to the recipe is in the bio! xo, Nic
Knowing your worth is one thing, but you still need to stand for that worth every single day. Who’s guilty of knowing their worth but still saying yes to things that aren’t aligned? It’s time to stop settling for less than you know you’re worth. ✨
Boy did I learn this today... effort is work & then there is accomplishment... that brings joy & relief❤️🙏🏻...tag someone you know needs this ☝️
Are you a SPECIFIC or GENERAL Manifestor??!
When it came to calling in what I want in my life + business, this was one question that kept tripping me up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀
》A specific manifestor works better identifying the specifics of what they want! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》A general manifestor is better off tapping into generally how they want to feel without specifics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which are you? I'll be sharing more about how you can find out soon. Stay tuned in my stories!
Let’s call in those dream clients, projects + the abundance we want in 2019. ✨🙌🏼😃

🌳 A Moment of Gratitude 🐞
Let's start today with a thankful heart.
What are you Beautifully Grateful for today babe? Let the Universe know!
I am thankful for: Cups of tea on the balcony | being with family and friends. | grounding to mother earth | unexpected amazing surprises | growing my own fruit and veggies | that feeling when you have a refreshing shower and feel replenished. 💋💋💋

Growth is uncomfortable. Making decisions and choices in alignment with the new vision for your life takes courage and bravery. It is not easy. Some people will think you’re crazy. Others won’t understand. And in the beginning, it won't be all rainbows and unicorns 🌈🦄💫
But - it will get easier and you will become stronger. As you begin to up level, you’ll trust yourself, strengthening your intuition; your purpose in the world and your confidence will radiate from within.
Deep down you know what you’re capable of. Don’t doubt yourself. You’re stronger and braver than you think. Keep going. You’ve got this ♡
