HALT! – don’t make decisions when you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired

HALT before decisions

The average person makes about 35,000 decisions every day—from trivial to life-changing. But research shows that all that decision making can be mentally and physically draining. Humans have a limited reserve of daily energy that’s dependent on adequate rest and sustenance. As these reservoirs are depleted, our ability to make sound judgments can deteriorate. Using the HALT system — ask yourself if you are: Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired — to do a personal self-inventory, we can recognize when we’re most vulnerable to making poor decisions.
