How do you deal with losing a lot?

remind myself that online rating really doesn't matter like at all and that I play chess for fun; if I'm not having fun aka losing, I just won't play for a while

Wallow in defeat.

One thing I find is it helps to test oneself before playing a serious game.  I play the computer here, a bot about my level or better.  If I find I make a stupid move within the first ten or so it's usually a sign that it's not a good time.  I find my biggest problem when I am losing a lot is simple forgetting about parts of the board.  It seem as though I see 7/8ths of the board but there's something important going on in the 1/8th.  That's my biggest challenge I think.
