Practicing the opposite, practicing privately, in front of a mirror, etc will help you be more aware of the mannerism and when it is likely to appear, then correcting or supplanting it with a more desired mannerism or response. ...Read more

I have really bad mannerisms of biting my nails. And I really want to stop. Any tips?

Mindfulness: Sometimes people don't realize they bite their nails until it's been pointed out to them or they look at their nails closely. Look into mindfulness based practices (yoga, meditation, etc) which help us train our minds to recognize when we're feeling certain ways in the moment. This helps to choose an effective response (example with anxiety might be taking a walk) vs biting which is "autopilot". ...Read more
