While we are all prone to bad habits, some of them are simply worse than the others, and what’s more, we are often too weak to give them up.
Well, the Pavlok bracelet is ideal in these cases!
This product is sold on Amazon for $200, and it is a shock bracelet. Every time you get a craving, you should turn on the juice.
If you are honest and shock yourself every time you wish to eat unhealthy foods, spend too much time on the Internet, oversleep, or spend too much money, very soon, you will associate these cravings with pain and crave less.
The strap gives a 350-volt electric shock as a gentle reminder, and you can also download an app.
Pavlok explains that the safe and harmless ‘zap’ of electricity on the wrist will teach the brain to associate an “unpleasant” feeling with your bad habit and stop it altogether.
Numerous people have shared their experience with the bracelet, and claim that it has helped them break habits from smoking to nail-biting.
Its inventor, Maneesh Sethi, explains that a little bit of pain can help us break our bad habits.
While it isn’t as powerful as a shock from a taser, the bracelet still delivers enough voltage to shock you make you jump.
He says that it feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing the socks on the carpet.
Also, some explain that the shock helped them avoid unhealthy foods and sugars, and change their relationship with food, others say that it has replaced their alarm clock in the morning, helped them save money instead of buying unnecessary things, and much more.
Its efficacy is explained by aversive conditioning, which is a behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to help reaffirm a specific action as undesirable.
Creators of this product even compare it to having food poisoning, so as soon as you get it, you stop eating the food.
