I have picked my nose forever, but now that I’m going
into seventh grade, I know I need to stop. Only problem? I can’t! What can I do
to ditch this disgusting habit?
While you might have started pickin’ your nose way-back-when to see
exactly what was lurking up there, by now you’re only doing it as a nervous
habit. Brava to you for wanting to drop it!
The best way to bust this baddie is to keep your hands busy
24/7. Whether you’re snapping a rubber band at your wrist or folding scrap
paper into cranes, you need to focus that nervous energy somewhere other than
your nose. I know it stinks to be called out on bad behavior, but being
embarrassed can make your subconscious want to ditch bad habits. Ask you
friends and family to tell you to knock it off when they catch you picking…and
work out a subtle sign for when you’re in public, okay?
Good luck, girlie!
