Remember HALT

It’s Thanksgiving Week!  As enter the holiday season in full swing keep in mind H.A.L.T.  This is a tool that I learned from a colleague of mine at the University.

Avoid becoming too

  • Hungry
  • Angry
  • Lonely
  • Tired
Making poor lifestyle choices, whether related to eating, alcohol, smoking, other drugs or any other destructive behavior, come at our more vulnerable times when we are overly hungry, angry, lonely or tired and most susceptible.
Remember HALT.  Take care of yourself throughout this busy and stressful time of year; you are certainly worth it.  Do something each day to calm your nerves, make you smile and feel connected to the world around you. Emphasize the activities that you like and surround yourself with people that you enjoy.
Happy Thanksgiving!
