I’m using Arthur Aron’s “36 Questions” for awhile. Aron is a social psychology researcher at Stony Brook University. His 36 Questions have been published in various places all over the internet and are usually referred to as the “36 Questions to Fall in Love.” However, the questions are useful for improving any sort of relationship, because they push us past small talk.
The 6th question in Arthur Aron’s list of 36 is this:
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you choose, and why?
Ultimately, I think this question is getting at the core of the mind/body conversation. Here are a couple of articles that may get you thinking even deeper about this topic:

As always, you can keep your responses light and simple, short and sweet, or dig in deep. You can head down a sexy road, or keep it safe for work. It’s totally up to you! The goal is simply to get to know one another better. There’s also certainly no one way to answer a question. Maybe your answer will come in the form of a photo…or a poem…or a story. And feel free to twist the prompt however it works for you. Linking up to multiple memes is a great way to get your work out there, so if you can make it work that way, have at it!
