October 11, 2018
This week, a Twin Cities couple, Sameer and Aneela Idnani Kumar,, won first place in the nation’s largest competition for entrepreneurs. The Minnesota Cup’s grand prize of $50,000 went to a company called HabitAware. The company make a tracker called Keen that is worn on the wrist. It’s for people who need help managing impulse control issues like hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting and thumb sucking.
While many people say beauty comes from within, and it does, our outer appearance does matter. It’s our hair, skin, and nails that make us feel beautiful. I know this to be true as sometimes I might feel beautiful, but then I catch myself in the mirror and think, who is that! Think back.
"Mental health conditions can often manifest themselves in hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, and face touching. Those repetitive physical behaviors may also result in deep feelings of shame that can impact self-confidence and, of course, relationships. HabitAware integrates wearable technology with an app on a user’s smartphone to interrupt those harmful, unconscious patterns. The tool allows individuals to become more mindful and retrain their brains to overcome disorders by alerting them when they make a specific motion."
