This Bracelet Gives Shocks If You Eat A Lot Of Fast Food Or Spend A Lot Of Money

If only we could afford to have a person that constantly stands next to us and yells at us if we eat something unhealthy or once again buy something completely unnecessary and totally out of our budget. Unfortunately, that is usually not the case when it comes to self-control, usually, we are left on our own to decide what is good and bad for us and honestly, it just sucks. So, if you’re like most of us and just can’t stop eating, spending money and sleeping, Amazon has something interesting to offer.

Pavlok, a bracelet that can be purchased on Amazon, is said to be a “behavior training device that works by utilizing Aversive Conditioning.”

According to the product’s creators, “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.”

In fact, Pavlok can be used to help you break many annoying habits

It includes wasting time online, mindless eating, eating fast food, biting your nails, smoking, and sleeping in. According to the reviews on the product, the device works best for those who have a problem waking up in the morning.

The way these bracelet works is rather simple. Creators of this product compare it to having food poisoning – once you get it, you stop eating the food that gave you the poisoning, and that is called aversive conditioning.
“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.’

‘Hey, wait for a second, maybe that donut doesn’t do much for me at all.’”

Although the idea sounds interesting, the product does have mixed reviews online, while some absolutely loved it
