REMEMBER TO ‘HALT’

This is one of my favourites and one of the most practical and fastest ways of dealing with overwhelming feelings of vulnerability. It comes from the simple wisdom of the Twelve Step program which has done so much to help us all in restoring our self confidence, self esteem, sense of moderation and balance.

WHEN YOU ARE FEELING ONE OR MORE OF THESE FEELINGS . . . . .

Hungry
Angry
Lonely
Tired

. . . . . . the first thing to do is HALT. Stop whatever you were planning to do and use the pause to consider whether your proposed action is balanced and adult. Or has one of your inner selves (or one of your unbalanced core beliefs) taken over and is now ‘driving your bus’? Is it insisting that you ‘must’ do something in order to ease your core pain?

It’s a good time to HALT!
