H.A.L.T. an acronym for too hungry, too angry, too lonely, too tired, signs that you are at risk of slipping into lack of self-control. I don't why that came so strongly in mind recently. But I recognized that the larger significance was to look at the concepts behind those words.
Have you nurtured yourself with nutrition, including water and balanced food choices?
Are you paying attention to how you respond to your world, to the things that "just come", beyond personal control? The response is the main part of your next steps.
The right companionship can put a different slant on many situations, including lifestyle change. That's why the SparkPeople community is such a powerful force for good. Share, and you'll feel the difference. Look around, and you'll see others who are on the path -- some coasting, some struggling, all wanting to make a difference -- in the affirmative.
Even the most intense and active need a balance, and rest and variation are key.
