So, asking more questions can help create closer relationships, but how can you benefit from asking yourself more questions?
Questions can be a great learning tool. The brain's neuroplasticity allows it to continue to reorganise and evolve as new information, new ideas or new skills are stored and create new neural connections or completely new neurons.
In order to ask great questions, we have to foster curiosity, but also conquer the fear of embarassment or not being right at times.
We all know children ask a lot of questions but it seems the older we get, the more we tend to hold back from asking questions, due to fear of judgement. However, asking a question and / or finding the answer gives us a feeling of reward - so conquering our fear might actually help us learn, especially as we tend to remember information better if it's related to an emotion.
Checking in with yourself and what you value can truly help you lead a more content and fulfilled life. Instead of going through life according to the world around you, turning inward and asking yourself questions will strengthen your connection with yourself and increase your well-being.
