Hi, I'm Aneela Idnani, co-founder of HabitAware in trichotillomania recovery. I'll be your Peer Coach for this course, guiding you through Love, Strength, & Awareness!
I'll be telling my trichotillomania story during the course of this course, so what I'll share right now is simply this:
I am committed to your recovery from hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting.
I believe deeply in the methodology we've created as a way to encourage your focus on the solutions, instead of the problems in our lives.
I want to support your rise above the chaos in your life by sharing the power of Love, Strength, & Awareness.
But I can't do it for you.
YOU need to commit to yourself today and everyday:
YOU have the power within you.
I just want to help you bring it out with Love, Strength, & Awareness.
Love, Strength, & Awareness is more than a tagline, it is the HabitAware Methodology for taking back control from unwanted hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting.
This video series is designed for anyone with a Body Focused Repetitive Behavior, regardless of if you have HabitAware Keen or Keen2 (though, these do play an integral role in building your awareness).
In these 10 lessons, I'll walk you through Love, Strength, & Awareness and provides the necessary tools, resources and strategies you need to retrain your brain away from hair pulling, skin picking, and nail biting:
Learn why Mindset matters
Learn how to implement "Love, Strength, & Awareness" in your daily life
Learn how to train Keen/Keen2 to deliver that first step, Awareness!
Learn how to choose replacement strategies that work for you.
READY!? Let's get started!

To move forward, it is important to understand our current relationship with our hair pulling, skin picking, or nail biting.
Take this time to hear my story, and to think about, and write down, yours.
BFRBs like hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting, serve a purpose...here's how we can use them to our advantage!
Our methodology ask you to do one not-so-simple thing! But I promise, the more you do so, the easier it becomes!
Our words have power - whether we speak them or think them, our language influences our feelings and our actions.
So why not use our words to drive us to healthy action!?
Training is a crucial step to creating an accurate gesture recording. This is a high level summary of how to train your HabitAware Keen or Keen2 smart bracelet.
