Oh,, I eat when I am nervous or upset. As yo might imagine, I am over weight because of it. I am dieting right now and the hardest part to get through is when I am stressing over this or that because I want to EAT! I do not have to be hungary. Hungary actually has nothing to do with it. Eating makes me feel calm. If someone could find the answer how to cure that,.they would amke millions!

Ok that has to be tough! Your nervous habit is eating, yet, you are dieting.. which makes you nervous, which is the lessor of two evils? Wow, I know I cannot stop my legs shaking.. try to focus on something else, this is a tough one. Let me say this.. you say overweight.. does you doctor say that? If he/she does then do something, do you say that?.. If yes do something... If anyone else says That 'FRIG THEM" You have to be comfortable in you, bethe best you that I am sure you already are!

Well, I have been going to the doctor to get help with my weight. The funny part is I can get stuff to make me feel not hungary, but if I am nervous- I eat when I am not hungary! So it only helps so much. I just really want to lose enough to feel better physically. I am comfortable with the way I look, just not with how I feel.

Hi, When I'm nervous, the sweat will run dowm my face and back, and I will touch my hair subconsciously. That's a bad habit, now I try my best to mend it , overcome the nervous, anyone has a good idea can tell me, thank you~~

I bite my nails down as far as they go and I might shake my leg if i am sitting. I also play with my hands a lot... I am a nail biter besides doing it as nervous habit but I always get told to stop biting my nails and no one has ever said anything to me about my leg shaking because i only do that if i am sitting down. and i just get looked at weird with my hand playing or my mom might ask me "whats wrong with you? but i will usually say "nothing"

I have a nervous habit of my legs bounce up and down and I mean fast. When we are sitting at the table and this is even in a restaurant my husband will look at me and say you can stop that any time you know. I can be sitting talking at a friends house or any where for that matter and if I am sitting my leg starts bouncing up and down. A nervous habit which I have had for a very long time.

I know what you mean.. I do that as well as shake my leg, foot... What the heck is this.. Alot of times we do not even know we are doing this! It has something to do with the brain I am sure.. Did you know that 86 percent of the human population has a "Nervous Habit", and out of that percentage, most are nail-biters and leg shakers... "it's a sign og intelligence" Iread that articl today.. Shake on!

86 percent of the population has a nervous habit. That is interesting to know. I like that it looks like us leg bouncers are intelligent. I will have to let my husband know this. lol. Pretty cool knowledge.

When I was in college, I used to bite my nails when I get nervous, especially during those times when I need to present something in front of my classmates. It somehow calms me down and makes me think more clearly. Luckily I'm off the habit now. And I have these nice fingernails to show to other people. =)
