These conversation starters help you connect naturally with your loved ones

Uncategorized Nov 23, 2020

Remember that a truly healthy, happy Holiday is about being present in the moment.

We dine to connect with the people in our lives. The food is there to signify the importance of the event and also to make it easier for us to focus on the conversation.

Be present in the moment with loved ones. We never know when it will be the last time that we meet someone.

We lose on another. Life throws curve balls.

So, cherish the moment of being together by focusing on the people in your life.

Get to know them better, ask the question you always wanted to ask.

Here are some sample questions that work all the time:

  • What are you most excited about right now?
  • What have you learned from this experience?
  • What is not perfect yet?
  • What are you willing to do to make it the way you want it?
  • What are you willing to not do to make it the way you want it?
  • How can you enjoy the process?

Focus on the conversation. Get to really know what is going on in the person whom you are speaking to.

When you speak with young children

You can ask them questions, such as:

  • What was your favorite part of the day?
  • What’s your favorite class or subject at school?
  • What’s your least favorite or toughest subject at school?
  • What was the biggest challenge for you right now?
  • What made you smile or feel happy today?
  • What made you frown or feel sad today?
  • What is your favorite thing to do with the family?

You can also ask children: “Would you rather” question, such as “If you could choose a superpower, would you rather choose flying or invisibility? Why?

Engage your grandparents and learn more about your family legacy.

Ask questions like:

  • What are the most rewarding things about getting older?
  • What are the most difficult things about getting older?
  • What do you remember about your parents and grandparents?
  • What do you want your children and grandchildren to remember about you?
  • What life advice would you pass on to your children and grandchildren?
  • What was your favorite thing about school when you were young?
  • What were your friends like when you grew up?
  • What was your first job?
  • What was your favorite job?
  • Who were your heroes and role models when you were young?

Look them in the eye, hold their hands. If you talk to them online, just be with them.

Of course, there are many more questions that you can ask. Which ones are yours? Share them here.
