New Year, Improved You – A Series of Tools to Help You Make the Best of the New Year

January 01, 2018

Here’s to a New Year & an IMPROVED YOU!

 The New Year starts TODAY. 

It’s not about a new you, it’s about making the current you BETTER. 

In this 3-part blog series, we’re giving you actionable tools to help you IMPROVE you.

1. ☔ Repel Perfection

Did you resolve to stop hair pulling or skin picking or nail biting? Have you already – gasp – failed?

Not to worry. Failure is actually part of a bigger beast — PERFECTIONISM. 

Research has shown that folks with body focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), like hair pulling, skin picking or nail biting, “maybe perfectionistic, meaning that they are unable to relax and to perform task at a ‘normal’ pace. They are therefore prone to frustration, impatience, and dissatisfaction when they do not reach their goals. They also experience greater levels of boredom.” But HOW can we IMPROVE if we are ALREADY PERFECT?! Well, we need to let go of that perfectionist attitude. Here are some ways to resist the temptation of perfection. 
 

2.  Mind Your Melon

Change – real, positive change – requires a shift in mindset: a shift away from the desire for perfection and away from the need to always be succeeding. Far, far away.

Because your mind is not set, we want to give you actionable tips on how to change it. 

Ellen from our Keen family (& now also on the Keen team!) shares exactly how you can shift your thinking to take control of hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting & other body focused repetitive behaviors. It starts with reseting your mindset!

3. Practice Happiness

🧠Think you can’t shift from pity to happy?

Backed by science, I’ll show you how you can LEARN to be happy, despite your circumstance. It just takes practice and I’m sharing 7 short exercises you can add to your daily routine to build your happiness muscles!

Just practice, practice, practice!

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.
