Finishing a dreaded but necessary report assuages the disgruntlement -- at least until the next one.

  1. To make (something burdensome or painful) less intense or severe: assuage her grief. See Synonyms at relieve.
  2. To satisfy or appease (hunger or thirst, for example).
  3. To pacify or calm: assuage their chronic insecurity.
(American Heritage)
