We all have bad habits. Some are worse than others, but bad habits exist among us nonetheless. What sets us apart from each other is not the severity of the habit, but rather our willingness and ability to overcome it. One company thinks they have the solution that's just right for you. Pavlok makes one product but it's surprisingly taking the internet by storm. It's a bracelet, but not just any bracelet. Their one of a kind design will shock you with electricity to help you break a bad habit.
That's no joke! Electric shock treatments have been used on dogs to curb barking (we don't recommend doing this to your dogs,) and for decades have been used for mental-health treatments, some more abusive in nature than others. Now, you can take your bad habit into your own hands and get a device that will shock you until you knock it TF off.
Pavlok boasts about their product with pride. "Upgrade your life," they say.
Used by over 50,000 people to break habits ranging from smoking to oversleeping. Download the app, and choose the habit you want to break to start upgrading your life!
The device is available for purchase on Amazon for the low price of $129.99 - $199.99
According to Pavlok, their device works as such:
Aversive conditioning is essentially behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to help reaffirm a specific action as undesirable. The reason so many people continue to smoke even though they know it’s bad… is because for many smoking IS pleasurable. The reason so many people continue to consume an unhealthy snack after unhealthy snack is because it often DOES taste good.
And that’s why Pavlok is ultimately so effective.”
Using the slightly uncomfortable stimulus of a shock, Pavlok helps train your brain to associate the bad behavior with the uncomfortable stimulus. And after as little as a few weeks of associating the two with consistent use, your brain begins to say: “Hey wait a second. Maybe I DON’T like smoking.” or “Hey wait a second, maybe that donut doesn’t do much for me at all.”
And the reviews have flooded in.
You might not understand the power involved...
"What a relief..."
In fact, this user even plans to eliminate their bad habits one at a time with the device.
It would seem Pavlok is at least on to something.
