    Unfortunately

    I shake. A lot. Seriously. When I have a violin concert/ensemble/recital/whatever, I *always* shake and it's amazing to me that nobody has said anything. You can hear the friggin bow bouncing on the string! It's not a big deal any other time... I can always claim to be cold. :P

    Two Habits

    1) I peel the skin off my lips 2) I eat the dead skin off my fingers I do these two when I am bored, when I am anxious, when I watch a movie or read a book. I have to stop but it is impossible. When I stop one of them I keep on doing the other one. My boyfriend CANNOT accept...

    Odd Ones

    When I'm nervous and laying in bed, I bunch up a corner of my blanket in my fist and tap it with my thumb. I apparently end up sucking my thumb in my sleep if I'm deeply distressed.. When I'm sitting [or standing even, if I'm really disturbed], I move my right leg up and down...

    They've Changed

    As I get older, my nervous habits change.. When I was younger and I knew my dad was coming home soon, I'd just bite my nails. As I got older and everything started getting worse, I'd bite my nails and pace the length of the room. When I went to work on the first day, I had on my...

    Lots.

    Lately, I've been thinking about my nervous habits. I know I have a lot, but I wrote out a list the other day. See, concerns me greatly, because from my initial count of the list (I could have been off by one), I have 50. few of them I have conquered, and a lot of them are...

    Nervous Habit I Have

    I seem to have had a nervous habit since childhood.  I used to love the feel of the silk blanket in my hand and would pick at the stitching that holds on the silk with my fingertips.  Now that I am older I find that anything that can give my fingertips a little...

    Yawning

    If I'm in conversation with someone and they start talking about something that makes me uncomfortable I yawn...Lol I don't know what makes me do it kind of to avoid talking about something I don't feel comfortable talking about.

    All the Time

    i don't think i barely ever stop doing some sort of nervous habit.  actually my favorite part of the body to watch -- are someone's hands.  They say more about what's going on with that person than any other part -- even the face. it's fun & cool & interesting...

    Hair

    I constantly mess with my hair when I'm upset or anxious. I also curl into a ball without even noticing. It is pretty off-putting and stops people from talking to me :(

    Yes Giggling

    I giggle when I am nervous and it is not that cute giggle that I have in other scenarios.  My voice also gets a little higher. I hate it.

    My Nervous Habits

    Mostly what I do is bite the inside of my cheek or my lips, that's my west nervous habit because I bite the inside of my cheek until it bleeds or it's seriously damaged to the point that it hurts when I eat. I also shake my leg, first I'll just tap my foot, then as I get more...

    Just A Few

    The worst one being nailbiting. I know it's an awful habit. I used to do it constantly, half the time without even realising it. In recent years it's only something that happens when I'm stressed out. Other traits and habits include... -shaky hands; fingers trembling, unable...

    Odd Habits...

    Whenever I am nervous, I either rub the side of my nose with my index finger or pinch the skin on my neck. I also have a habit of scraching my arm if I have on short sleeves. If anyone ever learns what my nervous habits are, I'm sunk!

    Nerves

    I do a lot of things when I'm nervous. It depends on the situation and how nervous I am. You know I'm nervous when: I'm tugging on my earlobe. I'm clacking my teeth together. I'm tapping my fingers on my knees. I'm twirling my hair around my fingers. I...
