Take a look at this picture.
The man and the woman look a tad unhappy.
然而 把图片倒过来看 他们马上就变高兴了
However, rotate the picture around and theyinstantly cheer up.
The ability to transform a bad mood
into a good one is crucial in everyday life.
In a study from the University
of Miami volunteers were asked to describe something bad that
had happened in their life,
and then list one way
in which they had benefited from the experience.
Some said they discovered what mattered in life,
or they found out who their real friends were,
or they discovered an inner stength.
This simple exercise made people feel happier,
less stressed and even had a positive effect on their health.
So when something bad happens, ask yourself just one question –
how did you benefit from the experience?
