My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
– Maya Angelou
You don’t have to go without
The Complete Life Project is a community of women dedicated to living completely, without the overwhelm and struggle of the daily juggle.
project: something that is contemplated, devised or planned
So often, women who have had kids find they’ve given too much of themselves away in the process.
They experience an an awakening, usually in their 40s, where they find they have lost themselves in the process of giving their all to those they love and that their life is lacking … something.
When you need to put the pieces together again, where do you even start?
There’s just too much information and not enough time to work it all out.
Sometimes you’re struck with a case of ‘now what?’ – the mid-life malaise that happens when you’ve spent years looking after everyone else but you left your own personal dreams on the backburner. It leaves a hole where your ambition and drive used to be and you’re worried that you’ve already reached your best before date and yet, you feel you have more to offer than ever before.
Your life is incomplete – something is lacking, leaving you feeling empty, unbalanced, and somehow not quite you anymore.
This is not how you want to feel for the rest of your life.
You’ve reached the stage where you need to look after your health.
You need to feel more fulfilled.
And you want to ditch what no longer makes you happy.
Welcome to The Complete Life Project.
This is the place where you find what’s missing and do something about it.
This is your project: your Complete Life Project is unique to you.
I’ll supply the puzzle pieces and you choose the ones that fit your life best.
And in one day, one month, one year, everything can change.
The Complete Life Project
Your pathway to being …
Try the simple solutions to nourish your body and nurture your mind so you have more energy and feel better.
Even when you’re busy you can shift your perspective and take some simple steps to change your mindset and stress less.
The holy grail of the busy working woman – these ideas will help you gain control of your time and life and bring you back to centre.
Life is too short to live it in any way other than completely.
Let’s get real!
Just like you, I live in the real world – the one without a chef, cleaner or magic laundry fairy. The one with work deadlines, budgets and school drop offs and pickups that make me feel like I live in my car.
You don’t want to add MORE work to your to do list.
You don’t need complicated routines.
Or expensive and time-consuming programs.
Which is great because The Complete Life Project is nothing like that.
It’s ideas that are:
It’s real life solutions that work for women living in the real world.

“Since meeting you and then joining, I have definitely reclaimed some of my space and am finding my place.
I have enrolled in a new professional course, I am drinking green smoothies every day (love your recipe !!!!), and am working on a BIG project that has been in my thoughts for over 20 years.
So THANKYOU for making it ok to be me – a clever, capable, successful independent, tertiary educated chick who married, got a mortgage, had kids and then gave everything to her family and meanwhile forgot about her own journey.
Who’s running this?
Hey, I’m Rachael Jansen, a journalist and qualified health coach who has spent the past decade researching, studying and trialling what it takes for women to be able to have it all and live healthy, balanced, fulfilled lives.
I started my personal investigation for my life when I found myself exhausted and unhappy raising a family and having sacrificed my career. I learned the hard way that women often draw the short straw – that in our quest to be great mothers, we often sacrifice our very essence and our health along the way, and by midlife, can be feeling unwell, unfulfilled and a little lost.
After I made changes to my life, I started The Complete Life Project to help other women change too. I can’t wait to welcome you as a Lifer!
Is this a course?
The Complete Life Project is a library of resources, lessons and lectures covering a range of topics to help busy women make simple changes for the better. It is not one course, but the content for my individual courses is included in the membership.
I'm already busy, will this take a lot of time?
I get it! I’m busy too and so I understand how little time you have to spare. Lessons vary from 30 minutes or so, to less than 10 to watch, listen or read. You can do all the lessons at your own pace. That’s part of the beauty of the membership – you go at your own pace but still have support.
How long do I have access for?
If you join on the monthly pay as you go subsription, your account is active each month you are a member. You can leave at any time, and your access will end at the end of the last month of your subscription.
If you join on the annual membership, you will have access for the 12 months of that subscription. You can renew at the end of the 12 months if you choose to.
Important info - READ THIS
Joining The Complete Life Project means you agree to the terms and conditions which you can find here. However, in short, non-lawyer speak includes:
THE MEDICAL STUFF
I (Rachael) am not a doctor, therapist, psychologist, naturopath or even an Agony Aunt columnist. I’m not your mum or your protective big sister (unless of course you are one of three people – Rahni, Tay or Beck, who are actually those people). You are a big person now and as such, are responsible for your own decisions and choices, including seeking proper medical advice.
On that note – the information and content on this website and within the Project is not intended and should not be construed as medical advice. We – Rachael and the guest experts – do not diagnose, treat, prevent or cure diseases or illnesses here (some of the exerts may do so at their professional clinics so by all means go see them there).
If you have a medical concern or suspect you do, you should consult with a health care provider or seek professional medical treatment. The information here is not intended to replace professional medical advice – so don’t ignore your doctor or healthcare provider’s advice based on something you’ve read here, or anywhere else on the internet for that matter (including advice from strangers on Facebook).
MONEY STUFF (LIKE REFUNDS)
I don’t want members who don’t want to be here – that’s not a great way to have a relationship now is it? So if you join on an annual subscription and change your mind because you feel the Project isn’t right for you, you’ll receive a full refund if you email me me within 14 days of your purchase. You don’t even have to give me a reason why you want to leave me – it will be a nice clean break.
If you join on a monthly subscription and change your mind because you feel the Project isn’t right for you, you will receive a full refund if you tell me within the first 7 days of your first month of membership. After that, you can leave at any time and your membership will finish at the end of the month of your last payment.
BE NICE – IT’S A RULE
I know it goes without saying, but to be clear from the get-go: don’t be a bitch. Membership rules include: be kind, positive and supportive. I don’t tolerate nastiness, hate speech, promotional spam or bitchiness. When making comments on the site or within online groups associated with the Project (including Facebook), be respectful at all times and remember freedom of speech doesn’t mean you can say whatever you want (that’s not what the law means).
Respect people’s privacy. Don’t share or repeat what others have said. Don’t gossip. Be a grown up woman who helps other women rise.
If you break the rules, you’ll be kicked out.
I (Rachael) own all the content here. You can’t take said content and publish it as your own. It’s called plagiarism (and as a journo, I know the rule) and is a form of stealing. I have created the resources here with blood and a lot of tears (I try not to sweat where possible). It’s hard work to create something like this – I wouldn’t steal from you so please don’t steal from me. If you do and I find out, I will set a lawyer on you. I know some good ones as well as some pretty good journos who might like a juicy story about such behaviour.
When you join, you agree to all the Terms & Conditions. You should read them ALL before you join.
