Asking Happier Questions


Have you ever found that asking or answering the question, “How was your day?” inadvertently led you into some negativity or complaining?

Our conversations form the bedrock of our relationships, so if we can have more positively framed conversations, we’ll enjoy more upbeat and positive relationships from this more positive environment.

To have more positively framed conversations we need to start them with more positively framed questions. (I call them happier questions).  

See what happens for yourself when you replace the traditionally neutral “How is X?” or “How was Y?” with one of these:

  • What was the nicest thing you did today?    
  • What made you laugh today?
  • If you could do any part of today over again, what would it be?
  • What was the best part of your day?
  • What did you learn today?
  • What specific part of today do you most want to remember a year from now?
  • When did you feel appreciated today?
  • Did you take any photos today? What did you photograph?
  • How can I make your day easier in 5 minutes?
  • If we traded places tomorrow what advice would you give me for the day?
  • Which of your strengths were you able to use today?
  • What moment did you feel the most alive today?
  • Did you hear anything interesting today?
  • What’s the first thing that comes to mind when I ask what beauty did you witness today?
  • What are you most grateful for?
  • What was the happiest moment in your day?

If you’ve got other happy questions, share them on the facebook group and let our community grow together.

Here’s to your inevitable successes along the paths of happiness.
