15 Ideas for What to Do Instead of Hair Pulling, Skin Picking or Nail Biting

April 07, 2016

Hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting and other body-focused repetitive behaviors are such subconscious actions that you never really know when it is happening. HabitAware’s smart bracelet is designed to give you awareness of where your hands are and what your mind is doing when you aren’t really paying attention. 

But then what?!

After awareness, it’s a choice. 

Once you have awareness, you have the power to choose to control the behavior you know you don’t want to be doing. “You have a choice about where to aim your lens of attention.” But that means you have to choose to replace the behavior with something more positive.

Here’s 15 ideas to replace hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting or whatever body-focused behavior you are trying to gain control over:

1) JUST BREATHE 

  

2) GO FOR A WALK

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) MEDITATE

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) DO YOGA

 5) GO FOR A RUN

6) STRETCH

 7) PRAY TO WHOMEVER YOU BELIEVE IN

8) THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS

 9) WRITE DOWN POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS ABOUT YOURSELF. LIKE, I WILL: 

 10) LAUGH OUT LOUD

 11) JUMP IN PLACE

12) GO TO SLEEP

 13) DO ARTS & CRAFTS, LIKE COLORING OR KNITTING

 

 14) MAKE A VISION BOARD COLLAGE FROM MAGAZINES

 15) HOLD THE HAND OF SOMEONE YOU LOVE

 

You have a choice in how you deal with your BFRB. We’re your #1 supporter when you are ready to face it & replace it.

In July 2019, I had the honor of sharing my trichotillomania story with 2,200 attendees at the 10th annual TEDx Fargo event, one of the largest independently organized TED events in the country. My "idea worth spreading" is the genesis of working at - and with - HabitAware Keen for the past few years: the Power of Awareness, as it relates to Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors. I believe awareness is the cure for trichotillomania and other BFRBs. Read on to learn how & why.
