Overcoming The Habit Of Kissing A Pillow From Childhood?
Good evening, I want to ask. U003cbr u003e I have a small head pillow that has an animal head that is older than me 1 year, which is 20 years. Because after washing it is the same, after 2 weeks-a month its distinctive smell returns. And after washing, I don’t like the smell because it becomes fragrant and really changes from its characteristic odor. So every night before I go to sleep (and when I go to sleep), I love to hug and kiss the pillow because to me the smell is very tasty. the pillow, and once when I was around 5 years old, the pillow was told by my mom and I became stressed + was very difficult to sleep, and finally fell ill. Several times my mother patched the pillow with extra cloth to reduce damage and eliminate its odor.
hello .. thanks for the question ..
some people can have habits that continue from childhood to adulthood and make dependence on them, for example, as the habit that you experience is very common. in general sleeping equipment or all objects / materials that can be reused such as clothes, towels, dolls, bed linen and a pillow case should be washed regularly. if not washed routinely or even very rarely washed it will become a nest or a piling place and the development of mites, dust, dead skin, germs or bacteria and other impurities that if this continues can cause various diseases such as flu, allergies and increasingly aggravating if you have a history of allergies (for example: asthma, allergic rhinitis / frequent sneezing), poor skin health (until itching appears on the skin to cause a rash, acne), infection due to mites (for example in the eyes causing infection / blepharitis) and other serious illnesses. if it has never been felt it is likely because the body has adapted to your habits and also because your immune system or your immune system is very good so it is not susceptible to disease. basically, if your habits are perceived to interfere with your activities or lives in the future as you age, habits like yours can be eliminated gradually or slowly. things you can do such as trying to change habits by trying to keep the roll away gradually (starting from 1 day without the pillow / alternating, then 2.3 days and so on gradually until the habit can be overcome slowly) and also try wear another bolster pillow. other things you can do are stress control and rest enough at night with a regular schedule, regular exercise, maintain endurance with the consumption of healthy food and drink 2 liters of water / day, wash hands thoroughly and correctly, routinely wash sleeping equipment and clothes. if there are complaints or symptoms such as flu, allergies, and skin rashes arise you should immediately consult a doctor.
that's all .. hopefully can help ..
