How Do I Stop Pulling My Hair Under Stress?
Yesterday was a rough day, my poor nails are really short.
There was some drama going on!
I had some bloggers attack me online out of nowhere for no reason basically other than they are mean..
Mean people suck!
It was stressful to say the least.
I work online so it happens, but really not that often.
I’m a very laid back person, drama is not the norm, so it was definitely something that got my anxiety levels up.
I know the night before some bad things were being said and you know what I did..?
I could feel myself starting already to get anxiety, my nails were just about gone..
I was twisting and pulling my hair like a mad woman at the same time..
So How Do You Stop Pulling Your Hair Under Stress?
I decided that to keep myself from yanking on my hair I would pull it back in this crazy braided style here.
I’m fortunate that my hair is really thick so I can interweave the uneven, short and patchy areas into the braid.
I can hide my Trich tick in a braid and not touch it and it looks normal… well semi-normal, I mean the hair style is a bit odd for me I suppose?
Pss… love that TP roll shot in the background huh? Selfie fail.
When its pulled tight into a braid like this I can’t touch the area I want to pull easily.…unless I want to undo the braid, which I don’t.
My handy dandy clip arsenal won’t do it on high stress days like this, I’ll would just tear through those clips like a kid with a Christmas present.
I kept this braided look in my hair for about 18 hours.
Not bad. Almost a day.
For 18 hours under some very high stress situations, I managed to not twist and pull my hair.
My nails got chewed.
but my hair is in tact another day..
So what about you?
What do You Stop Pulling Your Hair Under Stress?
Any cool hair styles?
Fidget toys you use?
Do you chew your nails?
Maybe you bite your cheek?
..or suck your thumb?
I do them all so there’s no judgement here.
I recently purchased some HabitAware Keen Bracelets, those seem to be helping me too.
Just curious what others do.
Leave me a comment. It would make my day.
