\r\n

We had so much fun cross stitching in Canberra with our Mum. But who would have thought you could receive so many profound life lessons from a cross-stitch?!  One thing we know for sure… cross-stitching is our new favourite obsession and it inspired this Get Merry podcast episode! Stuff we talk about\u2026 The power of single focus… multi-tasking is so 2012! … <\/p>\n

During our last episode, we felt proud of ourselves… we were organised and we got our message across in a super concise way (even Kim, our videographer mentioned this hehe). Well, this episode is the complete opposite! We chatted on a cruisey Sunday afternoon, it’s literally us having a conversation about life and what it means to live with LOVE … <\/p>\n

\r\n

We used to believe to lose weight we had to work out harder and eat less. It was all about calories in versus out. And weight loss was always the goal, nothing about health, hormones, nutrients or energy levels. Over the last 10 years we’ve had some huge mindset shifts and we confidently know by our own experience that if … <\/p>\n

During this Get Merry Podcast episode, we chat goals and visions for 2020. It’s not a drill down on specific goals… it’s more thinking of the bigger picture.

Rituals welcome in a sense of sacredness. They connect us to something bigger, they add magic to life. Whether you know about them or not, every single day you perform rituals. You wake up and you get out of bed, maybe you order your coffee, you make your brekky, you say hi to your work colleagues, you tick off your … <\/p>\n

This Get Merry podcast episode is a reminder that change can be scary and that you’ll most probably never feel ready to take that leap. You’ll never feel ready to quit the job, say yes to the first date, move overseas, you’ll never quite feel ready to say yes to your dreams and desires. <\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>

Maybe it’s to get stronger, to lose weight, to get fitter, to be healthier, to create less stress. You start the new workout, new diet, new meditation practise… you start … <\/p>\n

The study found that the most lonely age group is 18-24 and that inner-city dwellers are more lonely than rural communities. It also mentioned that loneliness increases … <\/p>\n
