Reconfiguring bad mental associations on just about anything?

I’m always digging into my psychology. Specifically, how I can continue to have new experiences and growth…mentally, physically and materially, and keep out of negative self-doubt cycles. When I say materially, I mean strong wealth for security in advanced age and not mansions, boats or range rovers. There are some situations that I’ve learned what I can from about what I need to change yet they repeat in my mind and waste my time before I catch them.

A trick I have just discovered is to revisit a previous bad experience and reimagine it as a cartoon or some kind of humorous event. For example, if the experience was with a person who put you down or rejected you, imagine the person as a walking turd with all the physical properties of a turd. Or imagine the person with huge ears twice as big as their head. It might sound nuts, but my mental effect of the situation changed when I did this. Maybe it wont’ last, I’m not sure yet.

However, I have tried applying it to current difficult situations and it just makes me laugh inside. Maybe it’s weird, but I like it. I’m going to play with it. Weird is also more fun than constant seriousness which I bet raises my cortisol levels and shortens lifespan.

    and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!

    Compare that to large amount of space you’re going to look at once you still
