When I first discovered the power of prioritising my passions, I spent some months in permanent bliss. I was constantly overflowing with joy, love, and I attracted amazing events and people back to me. Then life happened and I felt rather low for a while.
Only few people manage to be blissful all the time. However, I’ve developed a system that allows me to get back to this ideal state much more quickly. Here’s my process in three steps.

Step one: Identify your Wellbeing “check points”
To start off, remember a time when you were blissful and happy. Remember every detail of it, not just that you were in love and that made you happy. Ask yourself:
- What did you eat?
- How much did you sleep?
- What passions did you pursue?
- How did you spend your day?
Make a note of all of these in writing.
Step two: Write your Wellbeing Checklist
Check which activities you wrote down in Step one, and put those that are important to your happiness on a list. For me, this list includes dancing, archery and people I love.
Note down whatever it is for you. It’s important to put it in written form.
Step Three: Put it in practice
Whenever you feel low or have lost your drive, go back to your Checklist. This is why you wrote everything down: It’s so easy to forget to do the things that make us happy, such as passions or self care.
You can always adjust your practice to your mood. At a time of loss in my life, I danced to a sad song, crying, and it was the most therapeutic thing I could have done.
Remind yourself of what you need to be well. It’ll equip you with the tools you need to get back on an even keel.
