The quickest way to happy

What is the quickest way to leading a fulfilling, happy life?

Do something that makes you happy every day. And ideally do it more than anything else!

I’m writing from the Val d’Hérens in the Swiss Alps where I rented a little chalet for myself for 4 days. What a treat. This is my total bliss!

As you may know, I schedule in a long weekend once a month to retreat and do something that nourishes me and delights me (and my soul). It is my total dream to have a chalet in the mountains. Until that happens I save my money and I dedicate it to living the dream at least once in a while!

This weekend, from the most magnificent viewpoint, in the most delightful chalet, I have spent hours in meditation, walking in nature, eating healthy food, reading great books, creating my new programme, chanting, dancing and sleeping.

Most importantly, I have spent time being quiet and listening – listening to my deep inner voice and wisdom. This has led to some spontaneous healing, awakening and self-empowerment rituals.

There are such powerful transformational energies affecting us right now. It is a beautiful opportunity to listen carefully, hold loving space for ourselves and dare to follow the inner voice.

I used to complain a lot about life and moan about work, until I realised that I am entirely responsible for my own life, wellness and happiness. I create it.

So what is it that delights you and makes you bubble with joy?

Commit to doing one thing every day that lights you up and fills you up inside!

I leave you with these wise words of Elizabeth Gilbert and her most fabulous book, Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear:

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life.”

Plus a few pictures from my retreat :))

  1. It looks really idyllic there! What a lovely treat for yourself. I believe that doing something creative every day nourishes my soul and gives me endless happiness. This weekend I sewed tiny pyjamas for my daughters ‘little people’ and it proved very fulfilling! Thank you for your thoughtful posts.
