Positive Questions To Ask Yourself When You’re Feeling Low

How To Help Your Brain Seek and Find A More Positive Outlook, with positive questions.

We all know that today’s world can be a bit cold. That’s not to say that it’s actively harmful in any way; people just live fast-paced lives and therefore do not always pay the attention they want to themselves or their friends.

Without wanting to sound judgmental, I believe that we all deserve more positivity in our daily lives, seeing that this is one of the easiest ways to keep ourselves happy and healthy.

Self-encouragement is a massive part of one’s character building and progressing in a competitive world.

It helps both with realising your goals and staying on the right track to achieve them. It’s also connected with creativity, learning, and much deserved rest.

Here we aim to give you some ideas on how to use that to your advantage, with positive questions.

The Positive Questions – and Why They Are Important

When you think about it, asking questions is extremely important – even as kids, this is one of the first things we learn.

And later in life, we often judge how much one has understood from a particular subject based on their questions.

Figuring out what you want to ask means you know what you need help with, and as a result, you can receive more specific advice.

Answering questions is just as useful – this helps you with the perspective you search for, and you can focus on the details that you find interesting.

This is why we give both the positive questions and the reason behind them.

What good thing happened to me today?

Small things often go unnoticed in a fast-paced environment, and that really shouldn’t be the case.

A compliment from a stranger or the way your coffee tastes just right today are nothing special, but they help you realise that the world can be a kind place and that there’s always something you can appreciate. So here, it would be best if you tried to focus on such small things you have no control over but are wonderful, nonetheless.

What good thing was I responsible for today?

This works in favour of the idea “Give what you want to receive”. Being a kind person to others makes you happier, too, and it’s a wonderful habit that this question helps build.

The kinder people are to others, the more forgiving the world is, so you can use this question as a motivation to do one generous or sweet or thoughtful thing for another human being each day.

What and who am I grateful for?

Here you should focus on more significant aspects of your life. For example, the ability to live in a place you enjoy and/or to have close friends is incredible when you think about how big the world is.

On a cosmic scale, it’s even more incredible – millions and millions of years, and we can survive by doing what we love and having excellent connections regardless of distance.

If that’s not something to be grateful for, I don’t know what is. So when answering this question, try looking at the world as a whole and why you are lucky to live exactly now and exactly here.

Why do I want to achieve what I’ve set out to do, and where can I find a source of motivation?

Here, the main focus is your reasons for doing something – why you enjoy the work you want to do and how it makes you a better person.

Knowing why your goals bring you happiness helps you be persistent on your way to achieving them.

Also, if you keep asking yourself where you can find motivation or inspiration, the chances of eventually having more than one source are bigger; thus, you will never be dependent solely on one thing.

How can I learn from the mistakes I’ve made?

Turning a negative into a positive is very important when trying to change your perspective. For example, it’s easy to focus on your mistakes; however, realising that you can learn from each one assists in not beating yourself up too much.

Some will even try and make some mistakes when learning something new, just to understand it better, and even if you don’t get to this point, it would still help tremendously not to fear messing up, because after all, we all do.

What are some values that I want to work on?

Building your character and striving to be a better person is sure to make you progress in life, and for that, you need to know what you want to work on.

Values aren’t already set in stone; they resemble something like an ever-changing sculpture – they need constant work, but the progress you’ve made stays.

This positive question helps you in finding out which direction you want to take yourself in.

By answering it, you both acknowledge the work you’ve already done and where you want to put in even more effort.

Am I clinging on to something that I don’t want to – and why?

This is a very specific positive question because many people tend to carry a lot more regret and fear than they should.

Feeling guilty for past events or being close to toxic people all fall in this category, and it’s important to acknowledge it so that you can grow past it.

This is just the first step in a very long journey, but it’s a significant one, and one everyone should start because things like these hold you back and stop your progress, and they really shouldn’t have that power.

What is something I look forward to?

Here you can look at everything you want, big or small. It can be something like an upcoming event (going to your favourite coffee shop or a concert you’ve been waiting for for ages), or it can be a rite of passage in your life (moving to a different country or expanding your hobby). So naturally, the more stuff you have to look forward to, the better your future outlook is.

As a bonus, you can train your organisation skills by making sure everything you look forward to that depends on you will happen, thus making the whole experience feel even better.

What do I cherish in the people I love, and what can I learn from them?

Here your focus should be both towards the outside world and the one within. Answering why you love someone is really important in building a good relationship with them, and it clarifies a lot of questions you can have in your head about you and them.

Also, the people you love can be a tremendous inspiration, so learning from them is never a bad thing.

Here you can focus on both aspects, realising why the people around you are amazing and how they can inspire you to be better.

What qualities do I have that I love or am proud of?

This positive question is fundamental – recognising your inner value helps tremendously in keeping a positive view of yourself. It’s much harder for a good thing to grow out of a bad environment and ask yourself what you love about yourself is making sure you give yourself a good environment.

You can start big or small, you can answer about a different quality every day in detail or all of them simultaneously, but make sure you ask yourself this question a lot, especially if you don’t have a high opinion of yourself so you can start building it.

Progress can only happen if it’s been allowed to and loving yourself is essential in allowing yourself to be better.

positive questions

As we have already established, questions are essential in understanding everything better.

By answering these ones weekly or daily, you are sure to get to know yourself more and realise what makes you truly happy.

Changing a bad mood isn’t always easy, but the world around you, as well as the one inside, is an excellent source of inspiration.

Having a clear perspective, progressing and being grateful is essential in one’s growth and inner peace.

With these positive questions, we aim to remind you that you and everything around you is incredible and that although change can be scary, everyone is strong enough to overcome that fear to be happier and make the world a better place.
