Top 9 Ways To Stop Nail Biting Fast!

In the last post we read about the causes and ill effects of nail biting. If, like many others, you are tired of having painful nail stubs or are  feeling embarrassed in the presence of people and stressed out because of this habit then you must read this article.

Here are some very simple ways to kick this habit and enjoy healthy nails.

Steps to kick this habit:

1. Accept and confront this habit:
Take a picture of your bitten nails and make a list of why you want to kick this habit.  Hang the picture and the list on your bathroom mirror. This constant reminder might motivate you to kick this bad habit.

2. Visualisation:
Imagine that you have healthy nails and how good you will look with them. Hang up a picture of a hand with healthy nails to help you visualise better.

3. Include more calcium and magnesium in your diet
More calcium and magnesium in your diet will help you grow your nails and repair them as well. Sometimes the body urges the person to bite nails to meet the calcium and magnesium requirement. Calcium deficiency is one reason people bite their nails.

4. Keep your mouth busy:
Keep your mouth distracted. Keep carrot sticks handy and munch on them whenever you feel like biting your nails. Chewing gum also helps keep your mouth busy.

5. Keep your nails trimmed:
Keep a nail cutter with you at all times. Cut your nails whenever you see any additional growth. You cannot bite if you have no excess nail growth.

6. Find another habit:
Find a habit to replace your nail biting habit. Whenever you feel like biting your nails start drumming with your fingers or knitting. Just make sure that your new habit is health friendly.

7. Use Neem Oil:
Apply neem oil on your fingertips and nails.  The bitter taste of neem could prevent you from biting your nails.

8. Cover your nails:
Wear gloves for a few days till the desire to bite your nails fades.

9. Get a manicure:
Get a manicure in a good salon or do it yourself at home.  Manicured nails look great and you may find it harder to bite the nails and spoil the look!
