Summary: #GetMerry is all about giving you the action steps you need to create healthier, happier, merrier days, weeks, months, years... lives. Each week we’ll bring you fun stories (our stories!) and 'lessons' plus we'll invite the occasional EPIC guest to share the mic with us! Let's Get Merry with it!
How often do you worry about what others think about you? Does it stop you from doing stuff? Does it impact your behaviour? Does it stop you living your truth? Does it stop you living your life? What about when people actually start talking about you? What the heck do you do in these situations? How can you move through this in an easier way? During this Get Merry podcast we discuss this topic. We also give some pretty good tips too.
We believe it is extremely important to know what our core values are because once we know, we can align ourselves with people, jobs and decisions that match up with our values. This creates more flow, more magic, it creates steadiness and a sense of ease. Example... if health is a core value do not work at a fast food place. If you do you'll feel a sense of anger while you are working there. You will feel a sense of dis-ease. You will feel yuck.
