In brief: 3 steps

1. Be more "aware" of your habit.
2. Relax, focus and center yourself. 3. Perform a competing and opposing muscle response. Think about how this habit satisfies an urge. Are you a compulsive perfectionist? Does the habit de-stress things and give you pleasure and relaxation. This is merely food for thought. You may seek a psychologist/psychiatrist for assistance.
