In a bad mood, irritable, or just a bit off? HALT. This handy acronym reminds us to take a moment (HALT) and ask ourselves if we are feeling Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. These serve as a warning system before you do something you might regret.
Fortunately, hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness are easy to address. You just need to eat, sleep, connect with people (ideally face to face), work through strategies to calm yourself. Your mood and willpower will improve.
Note: If you often tend to be out of balance in one area, be intentional about correcting that area.
