If you have a passion in your life, you’re lucky. There’s nothing quite like having a keen interest in something, anything, in life to be able to feel like you have some meaning. Your passion doesn’t even have to be your career; it can be your hobby or just something that you love to do in your spare time. Regardless of what it is, you need to make sure that you prioritize it. Even when you feel like the thing you love has to take a back seat, here are seven reasons why it shouldn’t.

It Helps You To Switch Off

Firstly, you may find that having a passion helps you to switch off. Whether you like to fish or read, when you’re enjoying your favorite pastime, you may discover that your mind switches off better than it does in any other way. And aiming to be stress-free in life is the best that you can be.

It Builds Your Skills

After relaxation, there’s also the idea of your passion bettering you as a person. You might find that, with your passion, you push yourself to learn more. Whether it’s a DIY interest you have or something creative, taking courses can not only boost your passion, but build up your skill set too.

You Can Share It With Family

Sometimes, your passion can also be shared with your family. You may love a particular kind of sport, or even a language. Either way, you could start to teach your children to nurture their lives, or even take your entire family out for the day to enjoy your passion. Sometimes, sharing what you love with your loved ones is very special indeed.

It Keeps You Grounded

Having a hobby or something, you’re passionate about is often good for your inner calm. When you have something that you can dedicate a part of yourself too, you may find that it keeps your grounded. With the rising stresses in society, it’s more important than ever to have a balance in life – and your passion can achieve that.

It Makes You Happy

One of the most important reasons why you always need to prioritize your passion is your happiness. Although other things are vital in life, making time for your own happiness is also crucial. So, sometimes, you also need to make space for it. If you’re a writer or artist or even carpenter, you may need some space for your passion, like the Armstrong Steel Buildings on offer. By giving yourself a dedicated space for your passion, you may find that it makes you happy in life.

It Could Be Your Future

This one really is that simple. Your passion could be your future. Turning your hobby into a business is a real possibility. So, you don’t want to deny yourself that opportunity in life.

Having A Passion Is Essential In Life

And finally, even if you’ve fought off every reason why you should make time and space for the passion that you love, this one should really hit home. Life isn’t all about work; there has to be some time for play. If you want to enjoy a long, happy and peaceful life, you need to prioritize your passion. For your own sanity above all else.


  1. I don’t know what my passion is 😕
    It seems everyone I know is good at something, but I’m not sure what my something is?!? Hope I find it!

  2. My passion for photography is a great balance and really allows me to switch off from my studies. I think it is one of the times I feel the best on a reliable basis. Great post, Christy.

    • Passion brings color to life! Thanks Barbara. Did you get my email sent to you a few weeks ago about the potential comments issue on the guest post?

  3. I have things I like to do but I would not say I am passionate about them. I know it is about making the time. Thanks for the great reminder Christy

  4. great post… enjoyed it. I so believe i took what I loved at 13 and made it a business. I freelance every single one of my skills, and I go at it 24/7 as long as I enjoy it, and it pays. So work is hardly ever ever work.

  5. It’s so important to have a passion. And we never know where it takes us, but without one there would be no ambitions, merely pipe dreams. 🙂 <3
