Halt! Don't Be Salty, Be HALT-y

September 12, 2023

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Ever find yourself complaining and then look back at the situation an hour or so later and realize. Man, I wasn’t annoyed with what I was complaining about. This is what is called the HALT FACTOR.

  • H: Hungry
  • A: Anger
  • L: Lonely
  • T: Tired

It is easy to write about this, 5 minutes after I have downed a cinnamon bun. No one likes a complainer! So, next time you’re about to think HALT and see if there’s something you can do first before you complain.
