  • 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'd 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 strength.
