Habit Disorders

Overcome habit disorders with calmness and inner strength.

A habit is a learned behavior that you repeat so often that that you begin to do it without even thinking about it. Certain habits can be helpful, like the habit of brushing your teeth before going to bed or buckling your seatbelt when you get into a car; while other habits can seem to serve no purpose or even be negative habits. Examples of these kinds of habits include thumb sucking, nail biting, hair pulling and grinding the teeth. In children these habits include bed -wetting, facial tics and sleep -walking.

Habits often have an anxiety component and are a useful way to self soothe, calm oneself and relieve stress; however they are usually maintained by secondary gain such as relieving boredom, gaining attention from others and they may even offer a temporary escape.
