Triggers and solutions
I already wrote about triggers once. This time I am going to write a detailed personal triggers.
HALT(Hungry Angry Lonely Tired), BLAST(Bored Lonely Angry Stressed Tired). These are great. Adding hunger to BLAST will actually have most of the triggers.
Still there are some triggers that are worth mentioning and finding solutions.
