Is the following statement correct? At that time, I was trying to allocate more time to my leisure activities, and the joy was a keyword for me in those days which could determine what kind of lifestyle I used to be in. Thank you in advance.

As Kim says, it's unnatural. You are expressing several ideas in one sentence and it has become awkward and a little difficult to follow. I would suggest breaking the sentence up. "At that time, I was trying to allocate more time to my leisure activities. Joy was key for me in those days, and that search for joy determined my lifestyle then.

and joy was a keyword. Not THE. Correct, but sounds stiff and unnatural.
