Do you lose your cool and wonder why?  

For a lot of us, there are plenty of times were we are triggered by an action and have a some what out-of-body experience and lose our cool.  Why can't we just stay calm?

Often, it's not the current situation the we are in that causes us to lose our calm.  Instead, it is some underlying condition.  In this video, I explain a technique I learned called H.A.L.T.  This technique can be used when you feel like you are reacting unreasonably and want to question why.  

Halt for a minute and think about whether you might be Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired.  If you find that you are experiencing one of those emotions and you deal with it, instead of whatever triggered you, you will likely be able to better maintain your composure and stay calm.

Hope this technique helps, I'd love to hear about your experience in the comments below.
