What are Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs)?

Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) are repetitive behaviors, such as hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, and lip/cheek biting, that are often caused by anxiety or stress.

They can lead to physical damage to the body and are painful. These repetitive behaviors are often difficult to stop.

Fortunately, anxiety rings can help reduce the severity and frequency of BFRBs.

Since anxiety rings are designed to reduce stress and anxiety, it makes them a great tool for managing BFRBs.

They are a healthy alternative to skin picking and provide something to channel that energy towards. With the gentle rotation of an anxiety ring, a moment of calm replaces the urge to engage in BFRBs. This can bring you one step closer to breaking the cycle of anxiety-driven actions.
