30 Ways To A Happier More Positive You!




Do you ever feel like you would really love to feel happier and be more positive? Do you ever notice that some people just seem to radiate happiness and positivity? I want you to know that feeling happy and being more positive are by no means elusive or unattainable. I am on the constant quest to be happier and more positive on a daily basis.

Being happy and more positive can sometimes feel like a losing battle and a huge struggle when we are fed so much bad news through the media, or we listen to negative gossip about our friends or our co-workers. It can be very easy to get into the habit of being negative and cynical and having a relatively negative mindset. Most of the time many of us do not even notice that we are unhappy, we just go through the motions each day without giving our thoughts or our actions much consideration. To change things as they are we must first make a conscious decision and make the effort to be more happier and positive.

I called this website Your Positive Oasis for a reason, I sincerely want you to come here more often and feel inspired by a collection of quotes, get motivated by an uplifting article and have a little fun by trying one of the fun quizzes that I share. I have put together for you this list of 30 ways to become happier and more positive about yourself and the world around you.

50 Thought Provoking Existential Questions



50 Thought Provoking Existential Questions

What are existential questions?

Existential questions are usually deep, philosophical questions that question just that — our very existence.

They can be great conversation starters and they can also sometimes make for a passionate discussion. The following existential questions can be a great way to get to know someone better and perhaps even learn new things about yourself.

The word existential comes from the Latin word “existentia”, which means to exist. Existential questions challenge our way of thinking, our beliefs and our perspective.

Is there a right or wrong answer to an existential question? Perhaps not, as each question usually just asks more questions.

I have put together the following list of thought provoking existential questions so that you can perhaps start an internal conversation with yourself or start an interesting debate with your friends.
