When I get stressed, anxious, hungry etc I pick the skin round the outside of my finger nails.
It's a horrible horrible habit and I stopped doing it for a while but since DD has arrived and DS has become a bit of a handful I've started doing it again. So, I need something small and unobtrusive that I can keep in my pocket/bag and fiddle with whenever the need to pick arises.
Any ideas please?

I have a koosh ball on my keyring that I fiddle with, or the other thing I have found, is the latest craze for kids called Loopys, properably seen them about, they are plastic threads that you loop together.. keps your hands busy.

What about something like a smooth crystal or piece of soapstone, something nice and tactile.
