Perhaps someone can help me out with this one.

Long ago, one of my T's told me about an acronym that I could use to remind myself not to do certain things that lead to or aggravate my depression or anxiety. I don't remember all of it, and so I don't remember the acronym. Here is what I do remember;

Never let yourself get too-
Hungry
Angry
Tired
Upset

... and I don't remember the rest. The acronym was something like "HEART" or "HELP" or "HASTE"... I do remember the Hungry and Angry parts for sure, because I never thought that being hungry would be a trigger, but that anger made sense.

Does anyone else remember this tool? I'd sure like to put it back in my 'toolkit' of coping mechanisms.

Thanks,

Laz

Good advice, don't you think?
