What is a HALT worksheet about?

HALT is an acronym for hungry, angry, lonely, and tired. These are the four symptoms that you experience in a stressful situation. These are usually the first warning signs of a person getting into the cycle of negative emotions. Being aware of the first warning sign as soon as a person starts experiencing it will help him to control it better and faster. There are some warning signs that your body gives right before they experience the burst of emotions, the worksheet will help you to know them.

How will the HALT worksheet help?

This worksheet will help you to identify the warning signs you experience before indulging in any unhealthy activity or behavior. These signs usually go unnoticed. The first step of controlling your emotions would be to know the signs that you feel before you lose control and let your emotions take control over you. The worksheet will help you to identify those signs and work on those, cope with them and remain healthy and fit.
