It’s BFRB Awareness Week 2016 and we want to thank all those in the community for making some noise!
One of the best ways to learn about ANYTHING and overcome anything is through story-telling.
If you want to better understand how Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) shape (or distort) people’s lives, I highly recommend these books & films.
Most links lead to the TLC Foundation for BFRBs store, so if you choose to purchase one (or more) of these, you’ll also be supporting the only American non-profit funding research for a cure!
Storytelling offers a way to share, learn and grow. As I’ve personally found in sharing my own trich story, it also offers the storyteller an outlet to begin the healing process. I encourage you to pick up a pen, a paintbrush or camera and let your story out!
With love & awareness,
HabitAware’s smart bracelet helps you become aware of your subconscious behavior (whether it be hair pulling, nail biting, skin picking, thumb-sucking or another). With awareness, you are able to gain control, retrain your brain and replace the behavior with a healthier one. Check out habitaware.com for more info & to pre-order.

When I received my Keen, I trained it for twirling and hair pulling on the left side of my head and for skin picking on the top of my head. I really appreciated the option to change the detection settings depending on my body position, since I usually do my habits most when I’m laying on the couch or sitting at my desk. I hardly ever take Keen off! When my Keen is charging, I still wear the strap as a reminder to help train my brain. I even wear it to sleep!
In today’s guest post, our Keen family member, Amber Bodeur, who’s been “Conquering with Keen, now shares how she found the courage - and the support - to start a support group in her hometown.
It's important that Keen fits snugly. Here's a quick guide to help you decide which bracelet size to order:
