Merriment Making: A Guide To Getting Back Your JOY!

By Uncustomary

Looking to create more joy, fun, play, cheer, and exuberance in your daily life? Merriment Making: A Guide To Getting Back Your JOY! is just for you. This ultimate experience contains all of the lessons, examples, expertise, and truths about how to find more joy, even if you feel like it's been lost or you can't remember the last time you felt it.

It is your key to finding Merriment in life, not just on the occasions we take off work or buy cards for. It is the tool you've been waiting for to feel passionate about the "simple" things again.


What this book has to offer:

Merriment Making: The Guide To Getting Back Your JOY! contains everything you could want to know about cultivating more Merriment and JOY in your life, from strategies, shadow work, real life experience (successes and mistakes), and tangible exercises and activities to implement immediately.

On the first of every month you will receive a new chapter filled with the following:


A hard copy of a downloadable PDF of the current chapter. This can be read on your digital device or printed out.


A video of me guiding you through the shadow work (the harder parts) of the chapter, in a technique called Emotional Freedom Technique.


An MP3 file of me reading the current chapter out loud for you to listen to while you workout, drive, or lie in bed.


Every chapter will have at least one downloadable/printable worksheet that will assist you in processing the strategies discussed in the chapter.


A list of activities and examples of ways you can begin to implement the topic that will include ways that are both accessible to people of all mental and physical abilities.


Once a month there will be a live Zoom call where you can come join me and everyone else, ask questions, share your progress, and get 1:1 coaching with me!


From now until Midnight EDT on May 19, 2021, if you purchase, or have already purchased the book, you will also get exclusive bonuses including but not limited to:

This is not just a book. This is a year-long experience.

The content is dripped to you one month at a time so you have the opportunity to:

  • Not feel overwhelmed with an entire book at once that will just sit on your shelf
  • Assimilate, integrate, and implement the concepts and work on your own time
  • Digest your reactions and results and get feedback with me in a 1:1 more intimate way
  • Feel excited to have new content come out on the first of every month
  • Actually see results in real time instead of trying to do everything at once

"I adored how Mary spends this book cheering you on, while also giving advice about self love that is practical, heartfelt, and very helpful all at once. I appreciated that I was encouraged to not just read what she was saying, but take it a step further and write my own experiences about it/responses to it. I even used a colorful pen to match the very colorful layout."

- Colleen about "This Is About You", my first book

"An excellent self-help book. I'm sure I'll be revisiting this one multiple times. It's packed with uplifting "homework", actionable lists, and lots of color. Reading this book feels like having a conversation with a friend who knows what you're going through and just wants the best for you."

my first book

Is This Book For You?

Merriment Making: The Guide To Getting Back Your JOY! is for you if:

  • You are tired of feeling like it's all work and no play
  • You feel dread about things in your life
  • You feel an enormous sense of pressure and obligation every day
  • You miss your child-like sense of play
  • You can't remember the last time you relaxed
  • You feel an extreme sense of overwhelm and stress
  • You can't remember the last time you were happy
  • You felt happy today
  • You don't believe you were ever truly happy
  • You are willing to read and do the exercises
  • You believe change is possible

Merriment Making: The Guide To Getting Back Your JOY! is not for you if:

  • You are not interested in being happy
  • You are happy not being happy
  • You think that just reading or purchasing this is going to be a magic spell that changes your life
  • You don't believe change is possible

Do You Feel Disconnected From Joy?

The past year (plus) has been pretty damn intense to say the least.

It's incredibly natural for you to feel sad, stressed, depressed, overwhelmed, grieved, and ultimately disconnected from your child-like sense of joy, play, and wonder.

I promise you that I am not going to gloss over real life issues of death, illness, poverty, addiction, trauma, and more.

I've been called a "Practical Optimist", which I adore. We can't have grief without the love first, but that doesn't mean the pain hurts any less. In fact, the more you love, the more it hurts.

So whether the idea of getting your joy "back" sounds foreign because you can't remember when it was there ever before, you feel like it comes and goes, or is just out of reach due to whatever reason... I know that I can offer you an enormous set of skills, tools, stories, resources, perspectives, and more to help break through limiting stories, feelings of stuck-ness, disappointment, ruts, and more.

That said, despite working at a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center, getting my BA in Psychology, and being a Life Coach, I am not a licensed therapist or doctor. (Read more about me below.) Clinical depression and other mental illnesses are real and need to be treated as such.

No Abstract Fluff Without Action

Not only is this book a fully immersive experience with more than 12 chapters on unique topics under the larger concept of Merriment, live coaching, videos, and worksheets, but I'm also approaching this book with a unique set of life experiences.

I personally dislike personal development books and products that inspire the hell out of you in a very abstract way, then you get to the end of the chapter and there's nothing tangible for you to do or take away. Like, yes, okay, that felt good, but what do I do now? That's why I'm READING THIS!

So I promise you, that while I will share personal things from my life, they will be purposeful, and every single chapter will always have actionable items for you to take with you. Things you can do that day, things you can do over and over again, things you can do over time.

I also am approaching this book as someone who has had over six mental illnesses for over twenty years, is fat, and recently has experienced physical disability in a way I never had before with a fractured bone and two torn ligaments in my leg. That means that the activities will be extremely sensitive to all types of abilities, bodies, and sensitivities. I know that what works for one person might not work for another. You are always free to try whatever you want, keep what feels good, and toss what doesn't!

For more background: I have personal experience with C-PTSD, Bipolar, OCD, Tourette's Syndrome, Panic Disorder, Trichotillomania, Anorexia, Self-Harm, Suicide, Drug Addiction, Sexual Abuse/Assault.
I am also a part of the LBTQIAP+ community, have experience with Polyamory, Non-Monogamy, and Kink.

I am currently in therapy myself, take medications, enrolled in multiple educational programs to constantly be learning, have previously published a book, graduated with a BA in Psychology, worked at a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center for 5 years, own my own business, and am currently a Life Coach.

Who Am I?

Hi!, I'm Uncustomary. I started my business, Uncustomary in 2013 to share my journey with self-love, body image, and personal development. It has grown immensely to be able to help people all over the world in so many ways, for which I am incredibly grateful for!

I wrote my first book This Is About You: Amazing, Weird Beautiful You back in 2016. It has 5 Star Reviews on Amazon, and it's time for a new book! I am so honored to be able to bring you this new up-leveled book on a topic I am incredibly passionate about.
