Why We All Have "Ups and Downs"

There seems to be no difference in cycle length between men and women. With women, however, the results are confused by the menstrual cycle, which has its own ups and downs. When the emotional low of the menstrual cycle and the low of the basic emotional cycle coincide, an abnormally bad state of nervousness or anxiety may develop. Many unnecessary marital separations have unquestionably, Hersey and Bennett believe, been started at such a time.
You can see at once how tremendously important these findings can be to you personally. First of all, you can lessen any discouragement you may feel from temporary setbacks, any worry or anxiety about the future, by the realization that your depression may be a perfectly natural phase of living, soon to be followed by days or weeks of greater strength, assurance and optimism. No matter how dismal the outlook may seem to be, you simply won't be able to avoid feeling better presently. Next, you can keep track of your emotional cycles, so you will know when to expect a high or a low period. Your low days give you more accurate dates to go by than your high periods, because the "happiness" portions of your curve are usually more long-drawn-out; low periods seldom run more than a few days or a week and usually occur with regularity.
After you have found when to expect your high and low emotional tides, you can take advantage of both by planning your work intelligently. With a little experimenting you may find yourself able to plan the tough, constructive jobs, which require energy and confidence, for your high periods. At the bottom of your cycle, your powers of observation, coordination and memory seem less acute; you are more likely to make mistakes or have accidents. Hence that is the period of reserve for easy but tiresome routine.
One great danger is that during low periods minor crises or mishaps seem unduly important.
"Be sure," Dr. Hersey advises, "not to let unimportant troubles be magnified just because you are `down.' "
