Episode 17 - Processing The Emotional Load Of Change

Sooo... Change is kind of a big deal. Here at the Meraqui household, we've been going through a LOT of it. So naturally, we found it only fitting to do a podcast episode about it! All change - big and small - is accompanied by some form of emotional load. An emotional load is just that: a considerable amount of feelings that you have to lug around with you as you undergo whatever change you've begun. Sometimes these are feelings of confusion, loss, fear, discomfort, etc. When we don't...

Episode 15 - Love, Anxiety, and Other Fun Things [MMP15]

Everyone deals with anxiety in one aspect or another some time in their lives. Yes, everyone. So even if you're like, "Psh, I don't have anxiety. This episode is sooo not for me," I'ma have to go ahead and call you out right there. Anxiety is extremely tough to talk about. It's one of the most commonly overlooked and undiagnosed emotional "disorders" suffered by people from ages 21 - 35. Odds are someone you love suffers from anxiety and they might not even know it. Fortunately, emerging...

Episode 13 - No More Numbing [MMP13]

We live in this absolutely sci-fi level crazy time where we have so many wonderfully mind-numbing and emotionally-disengaging sources of "entertainment" literally at the tips of our fingers. Fabulous, right? Hmmm, not really. Numbing behaviors can really take the form of anything that you use - intentionally or unintentionally - to tune out issues, problems, or processing. For some people, this looks like cycling or studying or hitting the gym. For many of us, it's more like bingeing a...

Episode 12 - Calling All Control - Freaks [MMP12]

BREAKING: You don't have to actually control everything and you'll probably be happier! It took me a long time to realize that I was a control freak, "Type A," perfectionist. It took me an even longer time to figure out how & why the hell it happened. We make our obsession with perfectionism mean TOTALLY random things that hold emotional weight for us. For example, if you are: 1. Afraid of failure 2. Feeling out-of-control of your own life 3. Lacking validation and affirmation Then yeah....

Episode 11 - Deglorifying Busy-ness [MMP11]

Busy has become a status symbol. The busier you are, the more important you are. The more people who know that you're busy, the more excuses you have to bail on... Well, life, basically. The less time you have, the fewer reasons you have to feel shame or guilt about being lazy or not working as hard as your mom and dad, or blah, blah, blah... For whatever reason, many of us have tied our sense of self-worth to our level of "busy" - and that is a straight-up UNHEALTHY way to be. When we...

Episode 10 - Get Serious About Self-Care [ MMP10]

DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE SELF-CARE WORKBOOK AT * * * * * * * * * * * * While I was sipping a tasty beachside beverage on my vacation with my husband last week, I just kept thinking about how glad I was that we committed to this trip. Creating time for self-care can be hard, especially when it includes a monetary investment, taking time off work, and disrupting the "status quo." In fact, leading up to the trip, I actually had some intense feelings of guilt and...

Episode 8 - Positivity Is Punk-Rock [MMP08]

It's MERAQUI MADNESS! Two episodes this week for the price (lol) of one!

(If you can't tell, I'm REALLY excited about both of these podcasts.) So what does it even mean to "be more positive?" Does it mean you have to be that awkward level of...

Episode 7 - Cultivating Identity In A Relationship [MMP07]

In the immortal words of Queen Bey, "Your love got me lookin' so crazy right now." ♫ [uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, oh no no.] ♫ While I really wish I had more in common with Beyoncé, I know some of us can definitely relate to this sentiment. A serious relationship or romance can feel like it takes over our lives, and completely flips the status quo on its head. Some of these changes are natural, important, and help us to flourish. Sometimes, we feel our sense of self compromised: we change our...

Episode 6 - Owning Your Awesomeness

"I think people are just lying when they compliment me." "That accomplishment was just a fluke." "I don't deserve my success." "I'm afraid my boss / friend / coworker / lover will find out that I'm not as awesome as they think I am." "I feel like a fraud." If you've ever said any of these nasty little phrases to yourself in either your professional or personal life, you may be suffering a twinge of something we call Impostor Syndrome. Impostor Syndrome is when a high achieving individual...

Episode 5 - Listener Submission: Disagreeing With Grace [MMP05]

This week's podcast comes from a very thoughtful listener submission: "This election has obviously sucked for everyone but one unexpected thing that's been giving me a lot of stress is the fact that my mom and stepdad voted for trump. It's really put a strain on our relationship, especially with my mom whom I was so close with. It's hard to look past the fact that her ideals in some way match someone I loathe so much, while still remembering that she's the same person I loved before the...

Episode 3 - The Value Of Vulnerability [MMP03]

"Gee, it's so easy to be vulnerable!" ... said no one ever. Vulnerability is the emotional exposure that follows a moment of courage; allowing our true selves to be seen in all their imperfect glory after we do something we actually give a damn about. Q: Is it comfortable? A: Uhhh, no. Q: Is it necessary? A: Yep. Definitely. Q: Will it lead you to a kickass life? A: 100% YES. Q: But why does it have to suck so much?! A: It doesn't have to! This episode will debunk FOUR extremely pervasive...

Episode 2 - Getting Friendly With FEAR [MMP02]

"Wow, my friend is traveling the world and having so much success... I'm afraid I'll never measure up to her." "I don't want to go on that date because he might not like me. I better just stay home." "I really want to share this [insert creative thing here] I've been working on, but I'm scared of what people might think." "That yoga class would be so fun, but I would just look stupid and uncoordinated." Any of these babies sound familiar? Maybe you aren't saying them aloud, but they...
