    I find that "How are you?" is a very poor question to ask someone who is close to you because its such a common question. Its rare for it to be a sincere question that merits a full and proper answer.

    Instead, here are five better questions.
    1. What moved you today?
    2. What were the biggest challenges of the day?
    3. What did you learn today?
    4. Is there anything you would want to undo or do over from today?
    5. What were the strongest emotions you felt today?

    Love these questions as these are very specific and imply that you are genuinely interested in what they have to say! Agree with you that how are you may not be as effective as we are literally living with them and see them. Thank you!
