Weekly random acts of merriment based on unusual holidays
Let's Create Good News Together
The internet has given us amazing resources showing us "good news", too!
But it can also be another form of comparison-itis.
We can see the highlights of someone else's life and think we're not doing enough.
We think we can't change the world because what we do won't be "enough".
Let me simplify it by giving you step-by-step easy missions every week to make a difference in your inner and outer worlds!
I want to do is give you super simple ideas of how to embody, create, and spread joy.
I want to show you how to be your own good news!
Let Me Make It Easy For You
The point of Operation Merriment is to show you how easy it is to be a Merriment Maker in real life.
I want to show you how you can make a difference in your own life and other's in as little as five minutes!
Every week is based on an UNUSUAL HOLIDAY!
You can get as elaborate as you'd like, but the idea is to take the guess work out of the HOW and WHAT. There's no figuring out what you need, when, where, what, or why. The only thing you need to do is to DO IT.
Let's make Merriment Making simple with Operation Merriment!
Let's get out from behind the screens and use our hands, hearts, and heads.
Let's create and connect.
Operation Merriment walks you through you a weekly mission for you to create, embody, and spread joy!
Weekly Zoom Call
For you to come join and interact with me and other Merriment Makers where I'll explain the weekly mission in depth and potentially do bonus exercises depending on the theme. Held on Sundays at 12 PM Eastern (same time as Baltimore/New York)
This is the tangible challenge you'll take out into the world with you.
The weekly mission will be written out so you can read it if you don't have time to watch the video.
Tips, Resources, + Alternatives
Additional ideas for how to carry out the weekly mission for different abilities as well as different perspectives beyond my own.
Replays + Resource Hub
All replays and resources will be collected in chronological order on Teachable.
Reminding you of the upcoming call and recapping the week, including any pictures you send me as well as my experience with the challenge.

Hi! My name is Mary Uncustomary England.
I’m a published author, life coach, event speaker, podcaster, and team building facilitator. I have two degrees in Psychology. Previously, I worked at a psychiatric rehabilitation center for five years, creating curriculums for courses for 100 adults with mental illness. I’ve run my own business since 2013, where I created my own job title: Merriment Maker.
I actively study psychology, positivity, and fun. I’ve coached people 1:1 for over almost a decade with glowing reviews. I don’t base my work on hunches or tote bag inspiration. It’s influenced by research, science, and action. Let’s just say I have my 10,000 hours.
I have one dozen mental illnesses of my own. I come here from a sincere desire of wanting to be happy, not naturally being happy. I know this is work. And I’m doing it with you. I know if I can have an eating disorder, self-harm every day for years, try to kill myself, abuse drugs, and experience sexual assault and still create a fun life, I can help you have a fun life, too.
I believe in play over meditation. I’m blunt. My methods are founded in psychology and science, and I’m also (realistically) optimistic. I’m a good teacher. I’ve taught adults how to read and how to love themselves. Perhaps most importantly, I am here to get you to take action, not just to theoretically understand something.
My Merriment Making Method will always provide you with actionable steps and ideas to get you out of your head and into the world.
Tangibility will always win over theory.
