As-Salaam alaikum,
Malik Ibn Anas reported from Yahya Ibn Sa'eed Ibn Musayyab, who quoted it in turn from Omar Ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with them all, that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

"Always remember the terminator of pleasures", so we asked:
"What is the terminator of pleasure, Ya Rasulullah?" He replied:
"It is death." (Hadith Sahih)

In a related Hadith, on the authority of Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

"Remember death recurrently because so doing wipes out sins
and makes you disregard this worldly life."

So, if one is in distress, remembering death will alleviate his or her pain because it (death) is harder than any other misery. And if he is in a state of happiness and abundance, remembering death protects him/her from rolling in the pleasures of life and counting on it...as he/she knows he will part with it one day...
