If you can’t shake a bad mood after a fight, remembering only the sensory details of the event can help you get over it. When you recall where you were during a stressful situation, as well as the sequence of events, tone of your voice, exact words used, and how you could have handled it differently, you can improve your ability to solve problems and recover more quickly than if you dwell on what it meant, how it felt, and the emotions it caused.
