When bad things happen for some reason they seem far worse than when good things happen often hijacking the way we feel about our lives.
One way to put it all in perspective is to grade your day from 1 to 10 with a happiness score just before you turn in at night.
You may have a lot of 5s but you may have also posted a few high scores and some dreadful low scores.
The point is by looking at your month on a calendar to inspect the scores, you may find that you had two or three awful days and a lot of pretty good ones.
By seeing it this way, it prevents a calamity from making you feel like things are worse than they feel in the scope of a month.
