We all have them. They are what make you you. But perhaps you could do without one or two of them. As for me, I’m a nail biter. I’ve been biting my nails since I had teeth. I managed to stop for the last couple years, but recently I’ve had a major relapse.

Gross, right? Nothing fashionable about that. Plus it is bad for your teeth and bad for your health- sticking your fingers in your mouth makes you more likely to get sick.

So, it is time to stop. Easier said than done.

If you’ve had your bad habit as long as me, you do it without even thinking about it. So my solution was to use a physical and visible tool to help me stop, and I came up with this:

purple-name-bead-bracelet

I made it out of some beads I found in my room. With this bracelet as a constant reminder on my wrist, I will see it as I start to nibble and be reminded to stop.

And this could work for anything. Say you want to eat healthier. As you reach for that soda, you’ll see the bracelet and be reminded to drink water instead.

What do you think? Want to try this out with me?

  1. I’ve never had trouble with biting nails – in fact I like to always have mine of a reasonable length and painted, but SNACKING is definitely something I need help with haha!
    I have various bracelets but I don’t wear one all the time – so I could try this! For some reason I doubt it’ll work, but hey! (I’m usually an optimist. :/)
