Pavlok seems to think if it's good enough for training the dog, it's good enough for training you. And most people who were spanked as kids or repeatedly got hit in the face playing dodgeball would probably agree that the infliction of physical pain is a terrific teaching tool (stop mouthing off, stick to chess club). So the Pavlok bracelet, a wearable device that delivers a mild electric shock when you piss it off, might be your best bet for breaking some of your worst habits.
According to Pavlok's creators, studies show that receiving a shock - or some other form of uncomfortable physical punishment - activates humans' reptilian brains, which train them very quickly to stop doing whatever it was that caused the pain. With the Pavlok bracelet users can choose a bad habit they want to quit, such as smoking, nail biting, sleeping late, or over eating, and then set the Pavlok to start a "Self Shock" program.
When you set a Pavlok program, the app will walk you through various steps to break your selected bad habit...and then zap the shit out of you when you screw up. Don't worry, the shock is allegedly safe, as well as adjustable, ranging from "'pin prick' to pretty friggin' strong."
Start bustin' up your bad habits with a Pavlok for 32% off for a limited time.
