In case you’re struggling to lose weight fit or save some cash, this clever little device could be the solution to your problems.
Amazon is currently selling the Pavlok bracelet that helps you sort your life out, regardless of whether your issue is spending a lot of time on the web, biting your nails or oversleeping.
Basically, every time you step out of line, the bracelet will give you a 350-volt electric shock, just to give you a simple reminder.
And to give you a bit more of an incentive to be good, your mates can even download an app which means they can give you a buzz if they catch you eating an extra slice of cake or going on a spending spree.
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.”
Cost at $ 199, the Pavlok has 150 shocks per charge, in this way, depending the amount of a standard breaker you are, it could last a long time.
Speaking to ABC News, the inventor of the device said: “It feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing your socks on the carpet. There’s real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits.”
