Habits – Nail biting, Hair Pulling etc…

When we do anything, whether we regard it as good or bad, we set up a connection related to the activity in our mind. The more we carry out the behaviour the stronger the connection becomes and the more automatically we do it.

Habits like smoking are usually developed as a choice; others like hair pulling may sometimes be triggered by an event. Either way the object of therapy is reinforce the benefits of freedom from the habit and set up new desired connections that do not include the unwanted habit. Sometimes it may be necessary to deal with anxiety if it is related to the habit.
