Positive use of imagery is very important for controlling one's feelings.
A person with a tendency toward sadness is likely to habitually imagine unpleasant scenes. When you find yourself visualizing negative scenes, make a conscious effort to imagine a positive one. Make a list of positive scenes you can focus on. Take a few minutes to actually experience the positive feelings of focusing on those scenes.
(Daas Chochmah Umussar; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.181)
