Find some more small and not-so-small things to feel better about ? And sometimes it can also be a matter of taking one's emotional temperature too often. I remember one of my first weeks in Medical School, we were each given a thermometer and a booklet, and told to take our temperature every 30 minutes during all our waking hours, for days on end. We were surprised to find how much it varied, even among very ordinary and healthy folks like ourselves ; and realized that depending on exactly when our tempterature had been taken, we might think of ourselves as having a raised, or unusually low, temperature, when it was actually just part of the normal variations of the day.
Teh other image I find useful, is that of walking on a long hike through the countryside --- you may walk through the foothills of the mountain range, and the path goes sometimes upwards, sometimes down for a while. The trend is upwards till we reach the mountain itself, but at any one point in time, we might be on one of the temporary downslopes. We must look at the larger, broader picture, rather than just at the ground directly beneath our feet.
