It is not easy to break a bad habit. Even if you have all intentions to leave your bad habits, just having good intentions are not enough.
So, if you want to work for any of your nasty habits like overeating, smoking, wasting time online, eating fast food, biting your nails, spending money and sleeping, Amazon has something interesting to offer.
Solution to all of such problem lies in a little gadget designed to be worn as a bracelet. Pavlok bracelet available at Amazon gives users a penalty of a 350-volt electric shock every time they step out of line, as a reminder that you have had, enough! And all it costs you is $199 (£158).
For keeping a track of you, even your friends and family can also download the app and if they find you repeating your bad habit, they can zap you remotely. The device has 150 shocks per charge.
Within three days your cravings will be significantly reduced
According to the manufacturer, “Pavlok allows you to speak your reptile brain’s language by adding an unpleasant element (a safe and harmless ‘zap’ of electricity on your wrist) to what you have been taught to love (your nasty lingering habit), quickly conditioning your mind to associate an ‘unpleasant’ feeling with your bad habit… and stopping it all together.”
